Anjana, my daughter, was already attending college when I was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils. I decided to make up a first-aid kit for her that would cover just about any problem that may arise when one is living in a small enclosed space with other people, and using communal bathrooms, etc. Also, to help in the prevention of problems. The following are the instructions I gave her with the kit:

Respiratory congestion: 6 drops in left hand, rub clockwise 3 times, cover face with hands keeping eyes open. Breath in. Stinging is O.K. Or rub on chest and throat. Alternate with Raven as RC is deep and penetrating and Raven is soothing.

For any upset tummy condition. Rub a lot around naval area morning and evening or whenever needed. Or drink one drop in water.
