Inhalation of essential oils is an
effective way to treat nose, throat and lung ailments.
Nose, throat and lung infections are conditions that gain benefit from
treatment with specific aromatic molecules of some essential oils; their
solubility in ether (air) makes it easy to be inhaled, so the biochemical
properties of the aromatic molecules, as they reach the bronchial system and
by their only contact, relieve congestion of the bronchi and provoke
expectoration of the bronchial secretion, due to their mucolytic properties.
Especially the essential oils containing oxides and Monoterpenes are
indicated for the respiratory afflictions (by its broncho-pulmonary
properties), such as : asthma, bronchitis, flu, emphysema, some tropical
diseases, broncho-pneumonia and others like pulmonary tuberculosis (in
association with other essential oils).
