Essential Oils For Asthma
Asthma is a condition that causes a person’s lung airways to constrict and narrow. This makes it very difficult to breathe and can be very concerning at times. An asthma attack can be triggered by many things including pollution, smoke, allergens, toxins and exercising. These attacks cause tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing.
There are a number of essential oils that can alleviate a persons asthma. There are also oils that can be used during an attack.
Eucalyptus essential oil with its common eucalyptol aroma opens up the lungs airways and aids in breathing. You could use Eucalyptus essential oil topically on the chest and neck like you would use Vicks vapor rub. The aromatic benefits would last longer when applied to the skin.
Frankincense essential oil has very strong anti-inflammatory properties. This would make sense to apply to areas that are unnaturally constricting. Frankincense also is very calming for those that are experiencing an asthma attack. This would be an oil to apply topically or apply to the hands and cup over the nose and mouth and inhale.

The vapors will help soothe and open the respiratory airways.
