Mr. J has been home this week from school. Horrid cough, goopy nose, etc. Not fun. The other night at 2:30 AM he woke up crying. His ear hurt. As a mother, having a little one wake you up in the middle of the night with something like this can be frustrating. How to get a little one through the night until you can get to the doctor in the morning. Not anymore!
I took Mr. J and started applying doTERRA's essential oils on him. I used Melaleuca and Helichrysum. After I rubbed these oils around his ear inside and out, I put a few drops of Melaleuca on a small cotton ball and placed it in Mr. J's ear. (I also placed 2 drops of onion oil in his ear). I then took a heating rice pillow on his ear. After about 15 minutes Mr. J was ready to go back to his bed. His ear had stopped hurting and he slept through the night.
No more earache still two days later.
During the day I've been applying Melaleuca, Lavender, Breathe, Frankincense, and On Guard on the bottoms of Mr. J's feet. It's been less than a week and the gooky nose is gone and the cough is almost cleared up.
The Native's tease me and say it is my snake oil and call me a witch doctor. I immediately think of the scene in Princess Bride, "I'm not a witch I'm your wife"!
