It is Day 16 of my series, 31 Days of Young Living Essential Oils, and if this is your first time visiting, you can catch up on the the other days here.

Along with Thieves, my go-to oil to help with yucky winter illnesses is RC. RC is a blend of ten essential oils, and is especially helpful in battling seasonal sniffles and sneezes, bronchitis, sinusitis, congestion, coughs, pneumonia, and more. It is extremely effective when diffused, and also when applied to the chest, throat, and feet {think “oily vapor rub“}. Young Living also recommends to alternate RC with their Raven™ essential oil blend, and to use it with a compress on the chest and back.


What oils are in the RC blend?

  • Eucalyptus globulus – can be effective in eliminating bacteria.
  • Myrtle – is a decongestant and expels mucus from the respiratory system.
  • Pine – has antiseptic and expectorant properties.
  • Marjoram – helps to relax the body.
  • Eucalyptus radiata – is an expectorant that fights bronchitis and sinusitis.
  • Eucalyptus citriodora – a decongestant that can help the body relax and help with inflammation.
  • Lavender - helps relieve stress and calm the body.
  • Cypress – can increase circulation and support detoxification of the lymphatic system.
  • Tsuga – has pain-relieving and antiseptic properties.
  • Peppermint – can reduce inflammation and help with pain management.

What makes this blend so effective?

The oils in the RC blend are formulated to help bring oxygen levels up.* RC has helped open Cam’s airways when he was congested. I would swipe a drop of the oil on the top of my breast before he nursed so he could breathe it in. It worked every time, and he was able to nurse without an issue, even when he was stopped up. This blend has also been great for stopping my cough in its tracks. Like I mentioned above, I like to use RC by mixing with a bit of coconut oil {to make it more lotion-y}, massage it onto my feet, and then put on socks. This is incredibly helpful at nighttime, when coughs seem to get worse.

RC is my oil of choice for combating respiratory illnesses, coughs, stuffy noses, and colds.

Before using Young Living Essential Oils, I highly recommend you find someone local (or you are welcome to contact me!) for more education on using these wonderful, powerful oils. I have a monthly class (sometimes, bi-monthly), where we go over the proper usage of these amazing products. Knowledge is power, right?
