How to Use Aromatherapy Oils for the Treatment of Asthma

by Andrew Veazey

Asthma treatment by aromatherapy is done with the use of oils obtained from different plants. They not only have good fragrances but are also helpful to cure and heal the problems that cause asthma.

During an asthma attack it is difficult to fully exhale stale air because the bronchioles are swollen and clogged with mucus hence fresh air cannot be inhaled.

To have a good sleep during nights you can use a vaporizer with 2 drops of atlas cedarwood and 4 drops of lavender and inhale.

A chest rub must be made from essential oils such as peppermint and ginger. that have decongestive and antihistamine properties.

A lavender steam can be used by people suffering from asthma that helps to open the airways and relaxes the lung spasms and gives good relaxation. You can use a diffuser or humidifier if you feel difficult to breathe with steam.

Some of the essential oils for treatment of asthma with aromatherapy are eucalyptus, rose, lavender, ginger, peppermint, marjoram, tea tree, clove Anise and Cajeput.
