Are You Harming Your Lungs?
The top lung-suppressing items are commonly found in our homes.
How many times a day are you burdening your lungs?
- Laundry detergent and dryer sheets (Even fragrance-free has fragrance. They’re labeled “emulsifiers” and are masked by heavy chemicals so they smell “free.”)
- Air fresheners, candles, wax melts, etc.
- Household cleaners (even fragrance-free)
- Perfumes and colognes
- Makeup, personal care (lotions, shampoo/conditioner, creams, etc)
Did you notice the common factor was synthetic fragrance?
Did you know many synthetic fragrances have been labeled carcinogenic yet are still allowed to be used in the United States?
Don’t Be Fooled
Even when you buy “organic” essential oils at the store, they’re loaded with synthetics and fillers!
What’s a family to do?
Decide for yourself what’s truly healthy.
What will you allow in your home?
Who earns your business?
Here’s our quick checklist:
- Is it pesticide free? How can I be sure?
- Did the company add synthetic fragrance?
- Is it crazy cheap–this is a big, red flag.
I’ve searched for 6 long years for something that’s truly safe.
The only product line that fits into all three on our checklist is Young Living (you can read why here).
The great news?
It’s so super concentrated that we save money even though the price tag looks more expensive.
Once you drag those lung-suppressing items out of your home, you get the most amazing benefit.
Now you’re not weighing your body down with toxins in the form of pesticides and synthetic fragrance and additives.
This means you can use Young Living to strengthen your lungs!
Yes! It’s true!
The Right Tool
In a 5mL, $11 bottle, you get 100 “doses.”
We get to use this proactively and if we get a cough! How great is that?!
To get the same with generic cough syrup, you’d have to buy seven of their $9 bottles. That’s $63!
Not to mention R.C. is pesticide-free, synthetic-free, and powerful.
Cough syrups (even “natural” ones) have immune-suppressing sugar, dyes, and synthetics along with drugs that harm your body.
See how easy it is to switch? Save your money and your health!
It’s so crazy-easy to use R.C.!
You can use it on your chest or in a diffuser.
I suggest you use it both ways.
Topical (on your chest):
Put one drop of R.C. in the palm of your hand (cup your hand) with 4 drops of carrier oil (if more than that comes out, no biggie!).
Carrier oil is just a fatty oil you have in your kitchen.
A lot of people use olive, grapeseed, or coconut oils. It doesn’t matter what you use–(well, don’t use vegetable oil, but that’s another wellness topic for another day).
This is to stretch the R.C. and help it absorb into your skin.
Mix together and rub over your chest, throat, and lungs a few times a day.
Simply fill your diffuser (I like this one) to the fill line and put oil inside.
The diffuser I chose was a large one, so I put 20 drops inside for the 40 hour setting.
If I use a smaller diffuser like this one, I’ll just put in 3 or 4 drops of R.C. for its 5 hour setting.
My favorite diffuser will always be the Young Living Desert Mist diffuser that runs 12 hours!

Here’s what I think makes an amazing first month order:
