wet-cough-sm It's been a long, long cold and flu season and many of us have been left with a nagging, wet cough.  I have a notion you know what I'm talking about, constant coughing and you still can't get the mucus to loosen up and leave you alone, argh!!   It's annoying for you and those around you but not to worry, I have just the remedy to try! You'll need three pure essential oils and a carrier oil.  I recommend pure essential oils because they work the fastest and I consider them the safest as they're free of any dilution or solvents. EUCALYPTUS:  Its properties and value of Eucalyptus are magnified by it's ability to clear the wet or congestive landscape where unfriendly bacteria and virus multiply causing unhealthy conditions. Eucalyptus clears out sticky  mucus areas so that regular oxygenation can go on and healthy cell reproduction is enhanced.  Eucalyptus boosts the immune system by allowing ongoing clearing of many bacteria that cause respiratory problems.  Safe for children 2 years and older. THYME:  I love this herb and oil!  I grow all types of Thyme in my herb garden every summer.  I digress, it's about Thyme :)  This oil in it's pure state is effective in improving, Pneumonia, Colds, Cough, Congestion and/or infection of the lungs, tonsillitis, laryngitis, asthma, eases abdominal distention, and relieves intestinal gas. It can benefit chronic fatigue, shallow breathing, infections of the bladder and kidneys, chronic coughs, and bronchitis, ESPECIALLY FOR A WET COUGH. Flu symptoms are relieved along with the chills and the muscular aches and pains.  Thyme fights infection and improves immunity by boosting the production of white blood cells. European physicians prescribe Thyme Oil for bronchitis, colds, coughs, the flu, laryngitis, sinusitis, sore throats, tonsillitis and whooping cough.  Thyme should not be used if you're pregnant.  Thyme is safe for children if diluted with a carrier by 50%. PEPPERMINT:  This oil can help with arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, depression, fatigue, food poisoning, hemorrhoids, hives, hysteria, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), itchy skin, liver issues (promotes regeneration), memory issues, morning sickness, motion sickness, nerves (support and regenerate), radiation exposure, rheumatism, elevate and open sensory system, shock, soothe and cool skin, great for hot flashes, throat infection, toothaches, tuberculosis, varicose veins and vomiting.  Safe to use when pregnant, not recommended during last month of pregnancy or while nursing as it has been known to reduce breast milk if used consistently.

I like the separate oils for this protocol Sheila, I think the Thyme is very important with it’s antibiotic properties. You can certainly give Breathe a try too!

I have breathe… Do u think its comparable? Or is your idea better? My son has Cystic Fibrosis so we use Mucinex at least daily. I never thought to use breathe everyday ?!

Do you feel Spark Naturals are at lease equal to the DoTerra brand of essential oils and blends? I would appreciate your honesty on this. You can email me privately also.
Thanks so much. Teena

This sounds perfect for Naked Salve and a small Altoids tin!!! When I make salve I always put aside a large jar of Naked Salve and dose it out for whatever is needed and the small tins are perfect for a few days of treatment. Pack a small tin with salve mixed with some oil and throw it in a purse or back pack and your good to go!
