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.
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.
This was how we support our lungs.
Taking away all fragrance, cleaners, and replacing them with Young Living’s safe products made a world of difference.
Oils We Use
Raven is helpful 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, we make a batch and set a timer on our phone or Alexa to remind us.
Okay, the name is gross, but goodness does this work!
Here are the simple directions.
We sip on this in glass only (no one wants to drink petrochemicals!). Keeping up with this hydration process helps flush all the ickiness out of our system.
Our biggest successes came when we ditched the drug mindset and adopted a supplement/wellness way of thinking.
What’s 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 Subscribe and Save to arrive every few months, so we never run out.
The oils in this capsule are a sure fire way to get us feeling better fast.
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.
Safe Cough Drops
Dyes, synthetics, and pesticides are doing us zero favors.
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.
- Steep tea
- Add 1 drop Thieves, 1 drop Peppermint, 1 drop Frankincense, 1 drop Copaiba, 1 drop Lavender, and 2 drops Lemon.
- Missing any of those in your oily collection? Just throw in what you do have!
- Add honey to taste and waft toward you to open your sinuses and start breathing better!
- 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.
Grab your diffuser and some Raven.
Put a couple drops in and sit right next to it as you give your body some time to rest.
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.
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.
If not, don’t worry.
It’s something that starts to feel second nature in no time.
