Pure essential oils can help to ease the symptoms caused by chest infections and may even help to speed recovery. Click to learn more.

The blend below can be used in a burner but is probably more effective when used in massage or a hot bath. The essential oils will be absorbed by your system so their health-giving properties can get to work at the source of the problem. 

This soothing and protecting blend can help you to breathe more easily and calm a chest infection. Blend in 10mls of a carrier oil (Sweet Almond or Grapeseed for example) then massage gently across the chest. Alternatively, you can add the blend to a tablespoon of milk and put in a hot bath for a boosting soak. 

•         1 Drop Marjoram – Bactericidal and analgesic, this oil can help soothe the pain and discomfort associated with colds and chesty coughs whilst helping fight off infection with its antiviral properties. 

•         2 Drops Tea Tree – Well known for its expectorant, antiviral and antimicrobial properties, Tea Tree oil will get to work on the nasty bacteria that caused the infection in the first place. 

•         1 Drop Frankincense – a valuable oil in maintaining lung health. Frankincense is useful for soothing coughs, clearing phlegm and providing relief from any congestion of the lungs and nasal passages. It is also a wonderful oil for relaxation and meditation. This can help during times of sickness to ease tension and in turn relax the breathing passages. 

•         1 Drop Cypress – thought to be useful in treating cases of persistent coughs, bronchitis and asthma. Has good antiviral properties too.
