Sometimes it’s hard to not feel like a failure when one of our children gets sick….
Okay, I know that we can’t protect our children from everything. However, when we have such a great resource in our Young Living Essential Oils, it can become difficult to remember that.
I’m more of a reactive type person versus a proactive type, so I am not always as smart as I’d like to be in my essential oil use. When Valentine’s Day rolled around this past February, I decided that we should have a little Valentine’s Day party with all of my children’s little friends. It was to be a low-key affair… or at least as low-key as you can get with five moms and eleven children 5 years and younger! Thanks to the help of my mom, I was prepared for our party when it rolled around on the 13th of February – or so I thought. I neglected to think of the germs my children would be exposed to with so many little people running around the house! I should have prepared their immune systems by putting Thieves Essential Oil on their feet every day, on the days leading up to our party, but I didn’t. Oi!
Inevitably, my 10 month old ended up getting a pretty nasty cold that kept him congested most of the time. This left him uncomfortable, and made it difficult for him to sleep and eat.
So what did I do?

Within 5 – 10 minutes of applying the R.C. and Breathe Again to my son, I started noticing a difference. The discomfort in his chest that was building up started to loosen, and his nose began to run. This allowed me to suck it all out with a bulb syringe which allowed him to get comfortable. He started nursing better and sleeping more soundly. He was able to get the rest he needed for his little body to heal!
I am so thankful for the gift of essential oils!
Have you used R.C. or Breathe Easy? What was your experience?
