Respiratory Infection and Prevention Essential Oils


This blend may be used in a steam treatment up to 4 times per day for 3 days to benefit from the mucolytic and expectorant properties of these essential oils.

4 drops of Bergamot essential oil

4 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil

2 drops of Tea Tree essential oil

Combine Bergamot, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree essential oils in a dark glass bottle, shake to blend.

Chest Rub:


In a small non-reactive bowl, combine 2 drops of the blend with 1 teaspoon of grape seed or sweet almond oil.  Massage into your chest and inhale deeply.

Ultrasonic Diffuser:

Put 5 drops of the blended essential oils in an ultrasonic diffuser with approximately 4 oz water, inhale the vapors.

Steam Inhalation:


Combine 2 cups of boiling water and 4 drops of the blended essential oils in a small non-reactive bowl.  Place your face 8 to 12 inches above the bowl and drape a towel over both your head and the bowl, making sure to cover the base of your neck.  Rest your forearms on the ends of the towel to keep the steam from escaping.  Breathe the vapor for a minute or two, whatever is comfortable, and then pop your head out for a breath of fresh air.  Repeat for 5 to 10 minutes.
