How we got through the winter with oils

This winter, sickness hit us hard. Thinking back to last year, we were also hit hard with sickness so this time of year is not great for our health (or anyone else in America!). This year was different though, we were able to battle the bugs with essential oils. Praise God for that. Jon and Ford got nasty sick and I was able to combat with oils and didn't have anything more than a cough for a few days. I love that certain oils do certain things for certain people and I am always curious to read about what works for my friends so I am going to share what oils we used that helped kick the nasty flu/cold/cough bug that plagued America.

Thieves has got to be one of the most popular Young Living blends and it is incredible! It is antiviral, kills 99.9% of bacteria, and smells delicious. We rub Thieves on our chests and on the bottom of our feet to combat germs and also diffuse in Ford's room at night.



I had originally purchased Breathe Again for Jon to use for his asthma but I tried it out for my dry, lingering cough and was amazed by how quickly it was gone! I rolled it on my throat 3 times a day and in an X shape on my chest and it helped alleviate the pain of my cough and get rid of it. This is now one of my top favorite oils.


If you've read any of my other oils posts, you'd know my love for RC. RC is a blend that turns a stuffy nose into a runny nose and because Ford is always so snotty, I feel like I use it on him weekly! Jon and Ford used it non stop while they battled the bug. 


The combination of lemon, lavender, and peppermint is known as the allergy trio. On top of the flu bug that went around, allergies in Austin have been brutal. Now I can say with confidence that I don't ever suffer from seasonal allergies but this year was a whole lot different. Itchy and watery eyes on top of my lingering cough. Jon and I diffused the trio in our room at night and woke up the next day feeling refreshed and not bogged down by allergies. And boy does it smell DELICIOUS!
