Asthma and Bronchitis Relief using Natural Remedies

by Penny Keay

Having asthma and bronchitis can be a stressful affliction. When your bronchi and muscles surrounding them become narrowed, breathing becomes difficult.

Looking for a natural asthma remedy or a home remedy for asthma to help relieve the symptoms can be a difficult task. There are several alternative medicines for asthma and for some asthmatics the treatments are much more effective than the use of steroids.

Many things can cause or trigger an asthma reaction. In fact, often times asthma and allergies seem to go hand in hand. Allergies can include air born allergens, food allergies, chemical sensitivities. Even exercise or hearing upsetting news may trigger an attack. Coughing and wheezing result as you attempt desperately to breathe.

Asthma is or can be a serious medical condition and should never be taken lightly. Please follow your doctors instructions and let them know you may seek the use of a more natural alternative asthma treatment.

Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi. Again this can be caused by many of the same triggers for asthma. Thick mucus accumulates as the bronchial walls are irritated and inflamed.

It can be difficult to expel this mucus. Often times bronchitis will develop at the end of a cold or other upper respiratory infection.

In both cases, you should always consult your physician before implementing aromatherapy. Trying to avoid offending allergens of course will greatly reduce any attacks. In the case of bronchitis, getting plenty of rest is also important.

Aromatherapy can be a part of your natural home treatment regime. Aromatherapy can help to open airways and make breathing easier. Essential oils help to clear congestion, reduce inflammation and thin excess mucus so coughing is more productive.

Essential oils that might be helpful with natural asthma remedies include:

Clary Sage, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Helichrysum, Lavender, Lemon, Marjoram, Peppermint, Myrrh, Pine needle, Rose, Rosemary, and Tea Tree.

Essential oils that might be helpful with bronchitis include:

Cedarwood, Cypress, Elemi, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Helichrysum, Lavender Lemon, Marjoram, Peppermint, Myrrh, Orange, Pine needle, Rosemary, Sandalwood and Tea Tree.

Essential oils that might be helpful to relieve and soothe coughs:

include Basil, Black Pepper, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Elemi, Eucalyptus, Fragonia, Ginger, Lavender, Marjoram, Myrrh, Pine needle, Rose, Rosemary, Spruce Needle, Tea Tree and Thyme.

When making blends for any health concern - remember the best is to try one or two oils to start with. Never try to blend more than 5-6 oils together at one time.

Choose a couple of the above oils (or see below for a list of Synergy blends) and diffuse in any diffuser. You can also inhale from a nasal inhaler.

Eventually you will find the natural home treatment for asthma you are searching for to improve your health.

Breathing Rub useful for Asthma and Bronchitis

Jojoba - 1 oz
Eucalyptus - 3 drops
Pine needle 3 drops
Tea Tree - 3 drops
Frankincense - 2 drops
Myrrh - 2 drops
Thyme - 2 drops

Blend oils in a clean container such as a 2 ounce PET plastic bottle - rub on chest and mid back as needed.

You can also mix just the essential oils (eliminate the Jojoba) and inhale this blend from a Personal inhaler or use in a diffuser.
