Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My oldest son, who is 6 years old, gets croup 1-2 times a year. When he gets it, is is extremely scary; he experiences stridor and has a very difficult time breathing.

The last 2 times he has gotten croup, I have used Peppermint in a diffuser and a few drops of Thieves on his spine, chest, and feet AFTER he was already suffering. But this time I was ready to battle it before it became full blown.

Yesterday morning, my son woke up around 7 and came into my room with a slight barking/croup cough. He started crying and said he was scared to get croup again because he didn't want to die (poor sweet boy). Right away, I applied the Breathe Again blend on his chest and spine. I also gave him a capsule of Thieves to take internally. Throughout the day I applied Breathe Again and Thieves.

Last night before going to bed, we prayed together and I applied these oils: Thyme, Marjoram, and Peace & Calming. Then I had him take another capsule of Thieves. I had the diffuser going all night by his bedside as well.

This morning, he came out with the biggest smile on his face! He slept soundly all night and never coughed- NOT ONCE! The National Library of Medicine states that symptoms usually last 5-6 nights. But NOT when using Young Living Essential Oils!

Gosh I love these oils! But more importantly, I love our Lord who has provided us with such powerful, non-toxic medicine. The frequency of oils is increased with prayer. I am thankful!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: croup — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
2.Associated topics: croup — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
