Essential oil for cough

What follows is a great testimonial about the RC blend.

rc“Our good friend’s 14 year old daughter Alyssa has had a cough for 2 weeks…it hasn’t gotten better, hasn’t gotten worse, and they were scheduled for a blood test today because the doc didn’t know what was going on.  Alyssa was also supposed to get braces on her teeth today but they were afraid they were going to have to cancel that apt. because of her cough.  Last night I had Alyssa put RC on her chest, gave her 3 drops of Thieves in a ½ tsp of honey and had her put a drop of Thieves on the sole of each foot.  I also loaned her my travel fan diffuser to diffuse RC in her bedroom overnight. She called me this morning to tell me that she woke up this morning uncongested and with not a trace of a cough! They canceled the blood test, and she was able to keep the long-scheduled orthodontist appointment!” RC and Thieves used in combination seemed to support her getting over her cough.

Thieves Essential Oil

In ancient times, sweet smelling oils were respected more for medicinal properties than scent, while today the opposite is true. Most of modern society is ignoring the greatest attributes of essential oils–their health-giving properties.

The History of Thieves

Europeans began producing essential oils in the 12th century. During the Plague of the 15th century, certain thieves were able to rob the dead without fear of becoming infected by the terrible disease. After being captured and charged with robbing the dead and dying victims of the plague, the thieves were offered a deal. The magistrate offered them leniency if they would reveal how they managed to avoid contracting the dreaded infection, in spite of their close proximity with the infected corpses. They disclosed that they were perfumers and spice traders, and that they had rubbed themselves with a concoction of aromatic herbs (cinnamon, and clove).

Thieves Blend was found to have a 99.6
percent kill rate against airborne bacteria!

When Ancient Tradition Links with Modern Society:  Thieves™  Blend

Fast forward to the 20th century, Young Living Essential Oils begins testing Thieves™  Blend, a proprietary combination of cinnamon, clove and rosemary essential oils for its potent antimicrobial properties. Thieves Blend was found to have a 99.6 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria.  According to the Essential Oils Desk Reference (Essential Science Publishing, 2006, p. 125), Studies conducted at Weber State University during 1997 showed the antibacterial effectiveness of this blend against airborne microorganisms.”

Diffusing Essential Oils

Aroma Globe Nebulizing Diffuser

Aroma Globe Nebulizing Diffuser

There are a ton of different types of diffusers available on the market today.  Some diffusers are electric, others involve candles, others nebulizing technology… It can get a little confusing and overwhelming.

Luckily I have gone through the lengthy and expensive process of trying most diffusers out there. First off I would like to discourage you from using any type of diffuser that involves heat whether this be by candle or steam.  Heat can modify the property of the oils and thus reduce it’s therapeutic effects.  And since you are using therapeutic grade oils might as well use a diffuser that actually doesn’t denature them right?

Nebulizing diffusers are definitely the way to go.  They  don’t use heat and if they are set up correctly will actually allow you to get the most efficient use out of your oils.  I would suggest getting the Aroma Globe diffuser.  This diffuser is to my knowledge, the most technologically advanced nebulizing system on the market today.

It is quiet and very simple to use, it is designed to maximize the biological effect while minimizing the consumption of essential oils. A built in timer turns it ON for 5 minutes and OFF for 25 minutes. It turns on 6 times in 3 hours, then shuts off automatically. Air flow adjustment knob lets you set the output you want.
It’s amazing that everything fits into such a small space just 4 Inches round by 5 1/2 inches tall.

It’s hard to see in the photo, but it also has merging RED, BLUE, GREEN and YELLOW lights that shine into the liquid. In the dark it looks AWESOME!  The large capacity globe will hold 15 milliliters of oil.

Coverage = 0 to 1200 square feet. Depending on the amount of air saturation you desire. You wont find a better integrated nebulizer than Aroma-Globe.  I know this sounds like a big sales pitch but believe me you won’t regret it, this is by far the best diffuser available.

Essential oils & Alzheimer’s

Essential Oils and Aromatherapy for Alzheimer’s Patients

Flanagan, Nina. The Clinical Use of Aromatherapy in Alzheimer’s Patients. Alternative & Complementary Therapies. November/December 1995:377-380.
Megan Carnarius, R.N., is pioneering the use of aromatherapy, the therapeutic use of plant-derived essential oils, with Alzheimer’s patients. Known in Europe to be an effective mood enhancer and stress-relieving therapy, aromatherapy is becoming more well-known here in the United States, although its clinical use is limited. In Alzheimer’s patients, it can increase quality of life by reducing the anxiety that often accompanies the disease; its therapeutic use, however, is of special interest because of the connection between the evocative sense of smell and memory.

The aromatherapy program that Carnarius has developed for her patients in the Alzheimer’s unit at Manor Care in Boulder, CO, involves the use of diffusers, spritzers, facials, and massage with essential oils. Lemon oil, which helps patients wake up and focus their energies, is used in the morning in the diffusers and put on washcloths for facials; chamomile used to calm patients down in the afternoon or when they become agitated. The scents also work partly because they change the environment of the nursing home, breaking the stagnation and stimulating the patients to feel and remember.

Carnarius has developed an aromatherapy kit for use with Alzheimer’s patients which consists of five essential oils: geranium, lavender, marjoram, rosemary, and ylang ylang. She has trained Alzheimer’s unit staff at 13 centers, and there are over 450 patients using aromatherapy. Measuring results is difficult, but Carnarius says, “Since our programming is very structured, I know that with the oils, people stay in activities longer-they are stimulated more in general.”

About SAGE oil:

“11-03:  New research has proved that sage can improve memory, confirming centuries-old theories. British scientists have carried out the first clinical trials with healthy, young adults and found that those who had taken sage oil capsules performed significantly better in a word recall test.”
