Aromatherapy should in no way be used to treat an asthma attack, nor should it be substituted for medication. Having said that, it can play a valuable role in helping asthma sufferers to feel at ease and soothe some of the symptoms associated with it.
Here we have a blend of pure essential oils which would be ideal to have on a burner or electric vaporiser to help ease symptoms of asthma whilst also filling your space with a beautiful, relaxing aroma.
5 Drops Lavender – It’s the gentle sedative and anti-inflammatory properties of Lavender which make it useful for treating asthma.
3 Drops Geranium – An anti-spasmodic oil. Its sweet floral scent is known for lifting spirits and relaxing which in turn helps slow down and regulate breathing.
2 Drops Peppermint – Another oil with anti-spasmodic properties to help relax the muscles in the respiratory tract. Its invigorating scent clears and decongests the airways.
You can either vaporise this beautiful blend or add to a base cream or carrier oil and gently massage over the chest.
