Having trouble breathing? Allergies getting the best of you? Chronic respiratory conditions keeping you from your everyday activities? You are not alone. Complications with the respiratory system can impact people in multiple ways. There are many treatments (like inhalers) out there that can cause side effects, such as an increased heart rate or the “jitters”. These treatments are often medically necessary, but there are natural options to aid in decreasing the issues. Eucalyptus has been used for many years to help with painful breathing, shortness of breath, asthma, allergies, wheezing, and conditions such as Bronchitis and Pneumonia.
How does it help?
Eucalyptus contains eucalyptol that stimulates the secretion of saliva, promoting the relief of a cough. It also aids in dilating the bronchioles of the lungs allowing air to flow easily in and out of the lungs.
Rub a little Eucalyptus essential oil on your chest and throat and notice immediate relief!
This is a great natural remedy to aid in the relief of respiratory complications, along with breathing exercises and physical activities. We sell Eucalyptus by the bottle or drop here at Kneading Hands, grab a bottle next time you come in to get a massage.
