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.

When I picked our 13 month old son up from the day care center on Tuesday I noticed that a few of the kids were coughing. We sprayed the bottom of his feet every morning with a mix of a few drops of the Thieves oil blend and water to try and stay healthy so I upped it an added a few extra drops.

Thursday night the coughs were getting worse and our little man that night had a small cough. I started putting the RC oil blend on his chest and the cough lingered but didn't get worse.

Over the weekend we kept on with the RC and we almost got rid of the cough (I am a nursing/pumping mom so I'm sure the nursing helped too!).

Monday I picked him up and the cough was back. By the evening it sounded like it was moving to his chest. I started with the RC on his chest right away and diffused 4 drops of the Raven blend with 2 drops of the ImmuPower oil blend in our home diffuser in his room overnight.

Tuesday morning croup signs were posted at the day care, but he had almost no cough again. We went on like this and keep diffusing all the time we were with him. My husband started to complain that the house smelled like pizza (Oregano) but he googled croup, saw how bad it could be and didn't say another word.

His cough was totally gone by Monday. No stay awake nights, no crazy cough, no other problems!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: cough,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
3.Associated topics: congestion-/-mucus-/-phlegm — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
