Croup

November 24, 2014

When Jude got croup I shuddered. I heard that barking cough and it broke my heart. After a visit to the pediatrician he recommended prenozone for the night and a combination of oils to accompany that. Below is what we did and his cough is nearly gone!

Night 1: Prenozone + 2 drops Breathe + 1 drop Peppermint for fever reducer (diluted on his feet). He later got a high fever so we gave him some tylenol. Looking back, should have used more Peppermint.

Days 2-4: Night and morning (and sometimes after school also) 1-2 drops breathe, 1 drop peppermint and 1 drop Frankensince diluted on his feet.

Jude is 2 and I only use oils diluted with coconut oil on his feet.
