Hey girls. My poor little babe developed a cough and has the sniffles. It's my first time dealing wih an infant cough. So I got my books out and made this massge blend for her (chest and feet), and I want to share. It's safe for babes and adults alike.
*1 drop sweet basil (or 5 drops tto)- kills all nasties and strengthens immune system
*5 drops rosemary- nasal decongestant, expectorant, mucolytic
*5 drops helichrysum- anti inflammatory, mucolytic
*10 drops cypress- Antitussive (relieves cough), antispasmodic,
*1 oz carrier oil
****never use rosemary with someone prone to seizures, or wih high blood pressure
***you can add a little eucalyptus to help relieve chest congestion in *people over two* but with the rosemary there's really no need as they are both camphorous.
