What is asthma?

Asthma is characterized by difficulty in breathing, caused by muscle spasm in the small passages (bronchi) of the lungs. This narrows the space available for air to make its way out of the lungs, and breathing out is always more difficult than breathing in. This produces the wheezing sound associated with asthma attacks.

Many asthma attacks are triggered by allergens, such as dust, mites, animal hair or feathers but the onset may equally be caused by cold air, or it may be preceded by an infection such as a cold. It can also be linked to stress or and this can sometimes give rise to a vicious circle: asthma, then anxiety about the asthma, then further attacks.

Recommended essential oils for asthma

The choice of essential oils will depend on many factors, such as whether or not there is infection present, whether the asthma is known to be an allergic response.

Peppermint essential oil is a bronchodilator. It will widen the air passages and facilitate free flow of air into the lungs. It is soothing to the respiratory tract, and can reduce problems associated with asthma.

Bergamot, Chamomile, Clary Sage, Lavender and Neroli are all antispasmodic oils which happen also to be antidepressant, so they offer a wide choice if you know that stress and anxiety are factors to be considered.

Within this list, Bergamot and Lavender are also good for chest infections and Chamomile is always associated with the treatment of allergies.

To prevent asthma crisis to happen: Frankincense is also known to slow and deepen the breathing. This has a very calming effect, which makes it one of the most beneficial oils of all for asthma sufferers. This is a good oil to use in a diffuser during the night, notably for a child room.

Good combinations:

  • Peppermint + Lavender / Peppermint + Bergamot / Peppermint + Clary Sage
  • 3 drops of each in a bowl of hot water, then breathe slowly the steam to reduce severity of the attack.
