Essential Oils offer practical and natural remedies for all kinds of respiratory problems from cold and flu to asthma and allergies. They can open your airways, relieve chest congestion, ease a sore throat and provide relief from cold and flu symptoms.
Methods of deployment include topical applications, internal consumption, inhalation as well as bathing and rubs. A good clinical grade oil will permeate cell membranes and work in conjunction with your body's natural healing processes all without adding chemically induced side effects.
If you are prone to allergies or have a sensitivity to skin care products/fragrances you should be cautious about using essential oils as they may actually make your condition worse.
Before use, perform a patch test on the inside of your arm. Depending on the seriousness of your condition you may have to do this test more than once and over a period of a few days to be absolutely sure the oil is safe for you to use.
