How We ATTACK Cough & Congestion

How we attack cough & congestion might surprise you.

We never go to the store, and we’re never given prescriptions.

But this works better than anything we’ve ever tried.

Sam's Club

Supported Lungs

The only pesticide-free essential oils available are all over our home.

We call this our “wellness arsenal” because we believe God made us to be well and created plants for us to use to this end.

The Premium Starter Kit was how we got our family’s start with supporting our lungs.

Taking away all fragrance, cleaners, and replacing them with Young Living’s safe products made a world of difference.

Life and Home

Oils We Use

Raven from the Premium Starter Kit is where it’s at when we have cough and nasty congestion.

We put one drop of Raven in four drops carrier (fatty oil like avocado, olive, coconut, etc) and rub it over our lungs and throat.

Since consistency is key here, we’ll make a big batch of it and set a timer on our phone or Alexa to remind us.

Lymphatic Drainage

Okay, the name is gross, but goodness does this work!

Here are the simple directions.


Lemon from the Premium Starter Kit is super helpful in our reverse osmosis water.

We sip on this in glass only (no one wants to drink petrochemicals from plastic!), and make sure we keep up with this hydration process to help flush all the ickiness out of our system.

Nutritional Supplements

Our biggest successes came when we ditched the drug mindset and adopted a supplement/wellness way of thinking.

What is at the root of this cough and congestion?

Why bandage something without taking care of the cause first?

That’s why we always keep Inner Defense in the house and add it to our Essential Rewards order if we even come close to running out.

The oils in this capsule are a sure fire way to get us feeling better fast.

Neti Pot

Okay, I know what you might be thinking.

And believe me. I feel you.

I have my own love-hate relationship with my Neti-Pot, but let me tell you what.

When you put a drop of Rosemary and a drop of Tea Tree into your solution, the results are unbelievable.

Pro Tip: Use only reverse osmosis water and boil it in a lead-free kettle for optimal safety.

Safe Cough Drops

Dyes, synthetics, and pesticides are doing us zero favors.

Instead, try Young Living’s cough drops or make your own with Thieves and Lemon essential oils from your Premium Starter Kit.

They work amazingly well without anything harming your body while you’re trying to feel better.

Soothe Your Throat

Thieves tea is my jam, y’all.

Steep your favorite organic tea (though I still think Cinnamon tastes best with these oils!).

This helps us break up our congestion.

Then sip to soothe a scratchy throat and enjoy.

Remake as often as needed.

Thieves Tea

  1. Steep tea
  2. Add 1 drop Thieves, 1 drop Peppermint, 1 drop Frankincense, 1 drop Copaiba, 1 drop Lavender, and 2 drops Lemon.
  3. Missing any of those in your oily collection? Just throw in what you do have!
  4. Add honey to taste and waft toward you to open your sinuses and start breathing better!
  5. Sip and remake as many times a day as you need.

We use this to soothe sore throat, stem cough, and for a serious immune boost any time we need it.

Microsoft Azure Certification Training


Grab your diffuser and some Raven from your Premium Starter Kit.

Put a couple drops in and sit right next to it as you give your body some time to rest.

My favorites for cough are Raven, R.C., Eucalyptus Radiata, and Thieves.

Having a diffuser right next to you as you rest or nap is the best way.

That’s a way to make sure you’re feeling better and staying consistent with your oily routine here, so you can be back to normal in no time.


Final Thoughts

If you’re already living the pesticide-free lifestyle, some of these will be normal for you like taking Thieves Vitality, diffusing, and drinking Lemon Vitality oil in your water.

That’s wonderful!

If not, don’t worry.

It’s something that starts to feel second nature in no time.

How to Switch to Safe Products No ratings yet.

How to Switch to Safe Products
With everyone trying to switch to safe products, who can you trust, who should you stay away from, and how much should you be spending?

How to Switch to Safe Products

It can be daunting when you decide to switch to safe products.

With all but one company out there greenwashing, it can be very confusing with such tricky marketing.

This was us.

We bought every clean, fresh, free, organic, toxin-free product on the shelves when our boys were born.

Years later, I learned how to find out what was really in our products, and whose products were worth our money.

Who Can You Trust?

It was a painful journey learning who we could trust and who we couldn’t.

Long and uncomfortable story short: Young Living is who we can trust.

Yep. That’s it.

How do I know for sure this is the only one?

Because no one else is refusing to spray their plants with pesticides.

26 seconds.

That’s all it takes to have anything you put on your skin to penetrate down into your cells.

When I’m putting something on or in my family’s bodies, you couldn’t pay me to use anything but Young Living.

Our lives are too precious.

How Much Should This Cost?

This switch to Young Living should cost less than buying at the store.

Most of the over 600 lifestyle products are highly concentrated.

For example, I use one drop of Peppermint every fifteen minutes to bring down a fever.

Within the hour, it’s down.

That was four drops out of my 300 drops in a 15mL bottle.

You aren’t finding value like that at the store!

Another quick example, our Thieves Household Cleaner is one container costing around $22, but you get 29 spray bottles out of it, and it cleans quite literally every single thing in your home.

Whatever isn’t concentrated I’ll buy using my Essential Rewards points.

Essential Rewards is Young Living’s loyalty program that helps you keep your shopping quick, simple, and less expensive.

For example, I get makeup and supplements with “ER” points I earned from getting oils, personal care products, pet care, kid care, baby care, etc. from my Essential Rewards order.

They even have a shipping program that you can take advantage of like Amazon Prime, so you save a ton on shipping, too!

It’s super helpful!

Get Started

I’m nearly four years in, and I’ve never looked back.

Our family has a wellness arsenal we now pull from to proactively take care of our health.

It is an empowered lifestyle where we know what we need through the use of our Essential Oils Reference Guide, we’re never alone in our education group online, and we’re always able to life to its fullest!
