The following formula may be used for swollen tonsils, mumps and other lymphatic swelling in the neck area:
- 2 cups warm water
- 8 drops Lavender essential oil
Mix the water with the essential oil. While the water is still warm, soak a soft cloth, preferably flannel, in the water and wring it out.
Wrap the cloth around the neck. Cover with a towel to hold in the heat. Remove before it gets cold. Repeat as many times as you wish.
You can also use other essential oils based upon your child's symptoms and illness. Just be certain the oils are safe for use with kids!
