Trouble breathing? Try these natural solutions for respiratory support
Jan 25, 2017
One of the most common complaints people experience is respiratory distress and immune system threats. That’s especially true this time of year. I feel like people are extra sick in Dallas because we’ve had such fluctuations in weather. One day it’s freezing, the next day it’s 75 degrees!
When you’re congested and battling seasonal or environmental threats, it’s uncomfortable, annoying, and often unproductive because you feel lethargic and not motivated to do anything.
Whether this is you or someone you know, I HIGHLY recommend using essential oils to support your immune and respiratory function.
Breathe is our phenomenal respiratory blend, and it’s so easy and effective to use. To experience feelings of clear breathing, apply a couple drops to your neck and chest area as needed. The combination of soothing, cooling essential oils will help open airways and promote clear breathing.
If you’re on the go, you can add few drops of Breathe or cardamom oil and a few drops of lavender oil to a travel pack of tissues and seal it in a ziplock bag.
This way, you can breathe into the bag and seal it up for later use to relieve any congestion. You can also pack a travel diffuser or breathe vapor stick for deeper support.
I also always recommend pulling out a diffuser which is a beautifully crafted device that mists essential oils into the room for everyone to enjoy.
