You guys, not having health insurance is kind of nerve wracking when you have kids and one or two of them is prone to cold and allergy sparked asthma. So when Libby asked me if I’d like to review some sample essential oils I was all YES PLEASE.
Few things in life stress me out, people. Not even fevers scare me. But when my kids can’t breathe it sort of scares the doodoo out of me. With that in mind, Libby sent me four samples: Lemon, Peppermint, Lavender, and doTERRA’s Breathe Blend.
I flirt with being a hippie. I want to be all holistic and all that jazz, I really do. But so often I feel myself unsure if the “all natural” fix IS EVEN DOING ANYTHING. I believe in the power of nutritional medicine and the like but at the end of the day sometimes I don’t know if it actually works. But I do it anyway.
So I was completely impressed with doTERRA’s Breathe Blend of essential oils. From what I’ve researched it’s a blend of laurel leaf, peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree, lemon, and ravensara.
Essential Oils For Asthma
This week one of my sons began flirting with a fever and a chronic, asthmatic cough. You guys. That cough. It stresses me the heck out. In case you’re not familiar with an asthmatic cough – basically you cough EVERY TIME YOU INHALE. It’s awful. Especially at night.
The first day of the cough I treated it two ways. I would rub the Breathe blend on his chest and I would give him his albuterol inhaler. The cough would leave like magic. But it occurred to me that I wasn’t really sure if the oil was doing anything since I was giving him the inhaler also.
So on day two I decided to try giving just the oils. Wow. The cough still went away. Color me impressed. And again this morning when the sound of his constant cough (and I do mean constant) made it impossible for me to sleep another minute I applied the oil and it went completely away again.
So, I’m a believer. A real, live, proof-is-in-the-pudding believer. And as soon as I have the spare cash, I’m going to order a whole bottle of the stuff. Cause this sample won’t last long and I’m hooked.
