What is cough?

When bronchi become obstructed by external elements such as dust, pollen or excessive mucus, the body reacts by coughing. A cough is a reflex reaction to clear the air passages from any obstruction. This type of cough is useful, contrary to the dry cough, where there is nothing to expel, as it is due to an inflammation of the throat. This type of cough can be exhausting.

Let see how to handle both types of coughs with essential oils.

Essential oils for cough

The most appropriate way to use essential oils for cough is to do a steam inhalation, since this will soothe the throat and bronchi. It might contribute to remove excessive mucous by making coughing easier. A gentle massage to the throat and chest is an interesting alternative. You can also use both methods together.

If the cough is due to an infection, bactericidal oils can be chosen:

  • Thyme is one of the most powerful antiseptic, so should be your first choice.
  • Benzoin is good too, and has the advantage of being extremely soothing to the throat.
  • Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Lavender, Marjoram and Sandalwood are good solutions too. They are notably useful to alternate if you suffer from recurring coughs.

If the cough is due to an inflammation, you will opt for anti-inflammatory, such as Rosemary, Peppermint (also analgesic if you suffer a lot) or Patchouli.
