Eucalyptus Oil..or how to get everyone to sleep.
Just popping in here on this busy weekend to give you this helpful information. I thought about it the other night when the copper penny headed boy was having a residual asthma cough and I kept thinking…my readers need to know about this! And now as I was putting the baby down for a nap and she began coughing and I was rubbing in the oil again…I thought..”I have to tell them”.
I know as February comes to a close everyone is getting over having been sick. As we have properly passed around every grocery cart germ February had to offer.. we are left with a nagging cough. So simple you may doubt me but I have had awesome results… all you do is rub 4-6 drops of Eucalyptus oil on the soles of their feet. (I am sure there is a very spiritual post in there… and you are more then welcome to write it).
I never liked the messy chest rub…seemed so harsh and…well, a giant mess. I doubted that rubbing the oil onto the feet would do anything but in a house of coughing fits…one waking up the other and all of them waking me up…I gave it a shot. It worked like gangbusters!
~The hacking husband…quiet.
~The asthma-y dry coughing copper penny headed boy…sleeping soundly.
~The sniffly coughing toddler….stopped waking herself up and slept through the night.
I mean come on that is a wide age range and a range of different coughs… worked for everyone. Plus they all wear socks to sleep in..and still use their heavy winter blankets…I don’t know exactly why it works…and I am no doctor so maybe you should ask someone … but all I know is it has changed our nights around here!
I had to share…before I run out to buy more Eucalyptus oil.
*for the love of everything..please use a carrier oil… I stated that I am “just ” a mother of 8 kids… and I am no doctor…However since then… in the comments many people who claim to be professionals (to which I cannot vouch as I am also not a private investigator- but don’t tell my kids) very passionately want people to use carrier oils…so you know: Carrier oils people!*
