What is bronchitis?

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchi (bronchial tubes). Before you can choose the right essential oils to use, you need to distinguish between acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis.

Acute bronchitis

Acute bronchitis is a feverish condition, usually lasting a few days, with a harsh and painful cough. At first the cough is very dry, but as the lungs produce additional mucus in response to the infection, the cough becomes easier and less painful as the mucus lubricates the bronchi. Acute bronchitis usually originates with a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, such as a cold or sore throat, spreading to the lungs.

Chronic bronchitis

Chronic bronchitis is a long-term condition without fever. It is characterized by a permanent cough with mucus/saliva, due to continual over-production of mucus.

Healthy lungs normally produce a small amount of mucus all the time, and this is constantly swept up the bronchi by small hair-like projections called cilia. This process goes on all the time without us noticing it, as the amount of mucus is very small, and it is swallowed imperceptibly with our saliva. But when irritation of the bronchi, due to infection, air pollution, smoking, or other external irritants, provokes the production of abnormally large amounts of mucus, this literally swamps the minute cilia. The deep layer of mucus covers the cilia, so they can no longer propel the mucus upwards. Therefore, the body can only get rid of it by coughing.

The bronchi become narrowed because the membrane that lines them gets thicker and scarred. The lungs lose some of their elasticity. Therefore, breathing becomes more difficult, as greater effort is required to get enough air into the lungs.

Essential oils to use for bronchitis

Acute bronchitis

  • Aromatherapy treatment aims at combating the infection, reducing fever, easing the cough and expelling mucus.
  • In the first stages, when the cough is dry and painful, steam inhalation with Benzoin, Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Lavender or Sandalwood will give a great deal of relief.
  • Bergamot and Eucalyptus oils are also effective in lowering fever, and all these oils will help to reinforce the body's own defense mechanism in response to the infection.
  • In the latter stages of acute bronchitis, it is very important to clear all the mucus from the lungs, to prevent complications. At this stage, essential oils to use are Benzoin, Bergamot, Sandalwood or Thyme.

Chronic bronchitis

  • Cedarwood, Frankincense, Juniper, Myrrh and Rosemary all help to reduce the amount of mucus produced. They are expectorant oils that you can use to clear it from the lungs.
  • Being expectorant and anti-inflammatory, benzoin is one of the most helpful, if you had to choose only one,
  • a combination of three resins (Benzoin, Myrrh and Frankincense), used in baths and inhalations, can be a more effective treatment.
