Kicking That Kiddo’s Cold

As I mentioned in my First Testimonial post, our kids (mostly the small one) have been sick on and off for a few weeks.

Poor Sweet Baby Girl has been through so much. After battling RSV in the hospital back in October, all coughs and colds become a nightmare with her. She also has lung damage and the beginning stages of asthma 😦 While all of the other symptoms of her cold are gone, the coughing is persisting. She gets breathing treatments every 4 hours to help control it, but sometimes they aren’t enough. It’s pitiful to see her worked up in a sweat from a coughing fit.

After some more research (of course), I knew that RC would be perfect for helping our Sweet Baby when the treatments aren’t enough. I went online to the YL site to order it, only to find it out of stock. Apparently the rest of the YL community is dealing with colds and congestion as well! (UPDATE: It’s back in stock now!)  Our sweet friend (the one who introduced me to all this oily goodness) happened to have an extra bottle.

I quickly whipped, literally whipped, up a batch of cream to put on them at night! I have it stored in a small glass mason jar.

Night Time Cream For Sick Kiddos:
-3 tbsp coconut oil
-10 drops RC
-5 drops Thieves
-7 drops Peace and Calming

Whip coconut oil in mixer until creamy. Add EOs and mix together. Store in a glass container.

I rub this on her feet and spine at bedtime. I also put it on Ry to help him sleep and clear up the congestion that comes with this crazy cold weather we have been having.

The RC helps with cough and congestion, the Thieves is for germs, and the Peace and Calming (possibly my fav) is for a good night’s sleep.
