Respiratory is an invigorating fresh-conifer formula with expectorant, bronchorelaxant, mucus-resolvent and cough relieving actions. Respiratory is a versatile formula that can be extremely useful in a wide range of respiratory conditions. It can help open and decongest the sinuses, loosen phlegm in the bronchi, promote expectoration, promote free and easy deep breathing, and relieve cough and wheezing.
Used by deep inhalation and topically, Respiratory can also provide long-term support to the lungs in most bronchial disorders and can promote detoxification to counteract smog, vog and all forms of smoke pollution. May also be helpful for breaking the smoking and vaping habit.
Restorative and stimulant, our Respiratory blend may also be helpful with conditions of low energy, shallow breathing, chronic weak cough and acute cough with phlegm.
On the emotional level, this blend can also be supportive during the grieving process after loss or other emotional trauma.
Uses: Inhalation directly from the bottle, or from a tissue with a few drops of the blend on it (keep in a small plastic baggie for future use!).
Use Respiratory also to make a chest rub and massage oil in a 5% dilution in a vegetable carrier oil for treating all conditions above.
Also use a few drops in an ultrasonic nebulizer to create a fresh, forest-like, clean, low-germ scentscape in the home and at work. Also consider using Vir-Away and Microbe-X blends in a nebulizer. However, avoid using this Respiratory blend in an air-pump nebulizer as it contains a small amount of jojoba oil.
Dominant oils: Black spruce, Silver fir, Rosemary, Green myrtle, jojoba oil
Chinese medicine functions: Tonifies the Qi, strengthens the Lung, circulates Lung Qi, resolves phlegm, and relieves coughing and wheezing
For external use only. Properly dilute all essential oils in lotion or vegetable carrier oil before massage or other topical use. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, have any health conditions, or are taking medications, please consult your healthcare provider before using essential oils.
Very Refreshing , Opening of the Breath!
I had an asthmatic patient with shortness of breath inhale Respiratory dropped on a cotton ball throughout her day during the poor air quality from recent wild fires – she claimed it resolved her breathing issues!
I use this by putting 1-2 drops on cotton and then inserting them in my nose and/or a drop or 2 on the inside of my mask. I find it very warming and purifying.
This has an amazing smell. I could roll around in it. I use it in my diffuser while doing Qigong and at night. I feel like I breathes and my sinus passages are clear. Love the blends which Peter develops.
