Healthy respiratory function is more important than ever and you can use essential oils to naturally assist your body with clearer breathing! Accumulated mucus in the breathing passages holds germs and breaking down these secretions is necessary for the body to rid itself of them. Certain essential oils have expectorant or mucolytic qualities and can support the body to break down accumulated secretions in the lungs by thinning mucus making it easier to cough up.
Essential oils have been tested to determine their expectorant properties. Research has indicated that essential oils containing the astounding chemical compound 1,8-cineole are expectorants. Examples of oils rich in 1,8-cineole include
Whether by inhalation or external application on the chest, these oils have the ability to reach the bronchioles and improve lung function by relieving congestion and reducing infection. Remember to properly dilute essential oils if using topically. Inhalation methods are an easy and unobtrusive way to utilize essential oils. They also have an immediate beneficial impact on many breathing issues!
A simple and effective inhalation can be performed by adding about 5 drops of essential oil to a tissue. Kitchen paper towel is more durable and will hold the aroma longer than a bath tissue. Hold the tissue close to the nose and take 2 to 3 deep breaths. Deep breathing will increase the amount of the essential oil taken into the body! Additional methods of aromatherapy inhalation you can try are diffusers, steam showers, vaporizers or inhale directly from the bottle.
