Fight RSV and Other Respiratory Problems with Essential Oils!

There is a good chance you may know someone who is dealing with RSV right now. Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a very common virus that leads to mild, cold-like symptoms in adults and older healthy children. It can be more serious in young babies, especially to those in certain high-risk groups.

Highly contagious, RSV is the most common germ that causes lung and airway infections in infants and young children. Most infants have had this infection by age 2. Serious symptoms include blue lips, re-tracked breathing, and lethargy. Outbreaks of RSV infections most often begin in the fall and run into the spring.

RSV is spread easily by physical contact. Touching, kissing, and shaking hands with an infected person can spread RSV. The disease spreads from person to person through contact with contaminated tiny droplets or objects that the droplets have touched. RSV can live for a half an hour or more on hands. The virus can also live for up to 5 hours on countertops and for several hours on used tissues. RSV often spreads very rapidly in crowded households and day care centers.

Antibiotics do NOT treat RSV. However, essential oils can be effective in treating viruses. Essential oils can make a huge difference, often helping babies with RSV come home from the hospital much earlier than expected. One mom wrote, “Our 15 month old was admitted to the hospital last Thursday for RSV. Three other children were admitted the same day. Our daughter didn’t have to have one breathing treatment (the oils were doing what the treatments would have, except naturally). She wasn’t on near the oxygen the other children had to be on either. We were discharged Sunday morning with no oxygen or IV. Just our happy healthy little girl. The other three admitted at the same time are still there and will be for a few more days and I know one of them will go home on oxygen. I know she did so well and healed so quickly because of the oils!!!”

There are lots of things you can do for children with RSV. Here are several that I learned from Nicole Larson which seem to be most helpful.

#1 Apply 1 drop On Guard on the bottom of babies feet 2-3 times a day to fight off viral infection.
Or you could also try 1 drop of any of the following oils instead: Melissa, Thyme, Oregano

#2 Apply 1-2 drops Lemon down babies spine, chest and on bottom of feet (dilute if needed)—this is for drying up the mucus and congestion. Use 2-3 times a day or more as needed.

#3 Apply 1-2 drops frankincense on chest and upper back for inflammation in lungs and building up immune system. Use 2-3 times a day or more as needed

#4 Apply 1-2 drops Breathe Blend (add 1-2 drops of a carrier oil—like coconut oil)on babies chest, upper back and diffuse it in their room to help breathe easier (any diffuser will work, but for this situation I highly recommend a diffuser that runs all night long). You can also cup your hands over baby’s mouth with the oil on it like you would a nebulizer to help them breathe better. Use 2-3 times a day, or more as needed.
Or you could use any of these oils in the same ways:
Peppermint oil increases our oxygen uptake, so you might want to try just 1-2 drops peppermint instead (make sure to dilute)….or adding some with the Breathe. You can also use 1-2 drops Eucalyptus or marjoram instead (make sure to dilute with a carrier oil.

Use every time they lay down for bed, and throughout the day as needed. It is not like medication where you have to wait every 4-6 hours. As long as you are using just a few drops at a time, you can use it as often as every 30 min to an hour (use your best judgment). Most parents have found that using it around 3 times a day has worked very well, I would recommend using it at least 2-3 times a day. It is also less expensive to use essential oils as cost per treatment (1-2 drops) averages around .06 cents per drop.

It is also important to diffuse essential oils throughout the rest of the household. Use OnGuard or any citrus oil to kill the airborne virus. Add these oils to your laundry clean your countertops and other surfaces by diluting with 1/4 part distilled water. You can also use OnGuard Concentrate to clean

There are a variety of choices you can use; everybody has different body chemistry, so figure out what works best your child.

Take the OUCH out of Gout using Essential Oils!

2 Weeks after using doTerra essential oils

Gouty Arthritis

I had a sweet elderly woman come to one of my essential oil classes with her daughter. She was scheduled to have heart surgery but her hand were inflamed with gout and they wanted to postpone because she couldn’t use a walker and physical therapy would be difficult. She was on a fixed income and purchased the of Introductory Kit containing 5ml Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint essential oils. She used the lemon oil in her water daily and drank it. She told me she had to put her hands in an “ice bath” before she could the lavender followed by the peppermint which she used 2 drops of each in that order and rubbed on her hands. As you can see within 2 weeks she was able to put on her jewelry! If you know anyone that’s had gout; you know how incredibly painful it can be and there is no medication out there to stop it once it comes on. Essential oils are a beautiful alternative to synthetic medication and has no side effects. Its safer, less expensive and more effective!

Gout is a painful inflammation caused by buildup of uric acid crystals deposited in the joint. Uric acid is formed during the natural breakdown of dead tissues in the body. An excess of uric acid in the bloodstream can lead to the formation of crystals in the joints or kidneys (kidney stones). Some good ways to prevent the formation of uric acid crystals include maintaining a healthy body weight (which leaves less body tissue to be broken down), exercising, abstaining from pork, whole grains, alcohol and drinking plenty of water.

My husband was diagnosed with Gouty Arthritis because it went to different joints on his body at different times. He was on gout medication for 10 years which cause his liver enzymes to elevate. In order to control liver damage he would have to come off the prescription medication and would immediately have a gout attack. We are so thankful to have found a natural medicine that doesn’t have side effects. He has not had a single gout attack since using Lemon Essential Oil on a daily basis. He doesn’t miss a dose!


  • Lemon – internally: Detoxifies the body; 3 drops/day in 00 veggie cap; 2 drops per 8oz glass of water. Consume 8 – 8 oz glasses of water to rid the body of uric acid
  • Lavender – topically: gently apply lavender to inflamed site to relieve pain. If site is too tender to touch, soak in icy cold water first them apply lavender directly on site.
  • Geranium or Deep Blue applied to site for pain management and inflammation
  • Wintergreen, optional oil to apply if Deep Blue is not available.

Continue to drink Lemon Essential Oil in your water daily and take 1 veggie capsule daily to keep gout attacks from occurring. I also recommend dṓTERRA’s Life Long Vitality trio pack (LLV) a dietary whole food supplementation system. These have helped my health more than anything.
