A Blend for Respiratory Health

Breathe Essential Oil: from coughs to asthma

Breathe essential oil is a proprietary blend of six pure, potent and important oils for respiratory health.

The oils (listed below) have been found to open and soothe the airways and tissues of respiration. They've also been found to combat airborne illnesses that could affect the throat, lungs, and chest, and so it is often used for indoor air quality as well.

My own personal experience with this oil has been wonderful.

Every spring I suffer from mild seasonal asthma, where the new growth and warm weather constrict the passageways, making it difficult, uncomfortable and sometimes even painful to breathe deeply. I've tried multiple natural methods to relieve these symptoms, such as herbs and acupressure, but nothing worked. If you have experienced asthma you know how disconcerting it can feel to not be able to breathe to your fullest ability. I was constantly calming anxiety and stress when these attacks would come on.

Now I just carry Breathe essential oil with me. Just a small amount of this awesome blend and within minutes I'm breathing easily, the symptoms completely gone or dissipating. And it feels great to know that my ability to breathe is within my power again!

IMPORTANT NOTE ON QUALITY

The information provided here on the properties and uses of this oil do NOT apply to all essential oil brands.

Because of lenient industry standards and a lack of regulation on terms such as "natural" or "pure", much of what you find at the drug store is not a therapeutic grade of essential oil and may actually make you sick. In fact, only about 50% of it needs to be actual essential oils to be called "pure"!

A LOT goes into creating a therapeutic grade essential oil. The best essential oil brands follow these guidelines:

  • Proper plant varieties
  • Grown in their indigenous region around the world
  • Grown without chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc
  • Harvested with precise timing to ensure peak properties
  • Extracted with proper temp and pressure to preserve oil molecules
  • Third-party testing of each and every batch
  • Stand behind the internal use of their oils
