Methods of Applications as Mentioned in the Podcast: 

1. Steam Inhalations:  1 drop of essential oil in a bowl of steamy hot water, 2-3 times/day, 5 min (note: I varied the oils with each inhalation)

  • Spike Lavender (Lavendula latifolia), Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis ct. camphor), Eucalyptus Dives (all three oils are mucolytic, expectorant)
  • Tea Tree (decongestant, anti-infectious, expectorant)

2. Nightly Chest Rub with Jojoba Oil at a 3% dilution (15 drops to 1 oz ounce of Jojoba) (varying the oils I use)

  • Spike Lavender (mucolytic, expectorant, and I love the smell)
  • Balsam Copaiba (anti-inflammatory, calming and I find the aroma comforting)
  • Black Pepper, Ginger (warming)
  • Balsam Fir (strong antimicrobial, dries mucous, calming for a spastic cough)
  • Thyme ct. linalol (immune system support)
  • Basil ct linalol (antispasmodic for cough)

3. Pre-Bedtime Bath (10-20 drops in the tub right before I stepped in then soak for 30 minutes breathing in the steam)

  • 2 Cups of Epsom Salts (to detox from the prescription meds)
  • I rotated the essential oils mentioned above.
