Asthma can be more than just a bother, it can be life threatening. It is triggered by different things for different people. For some, it’s stress, for others pollen, for others exercise, even foods or certain emotional situations can trigger asthma. There are some essential oils that can help to reopen air passageways and help breathing.* We recommend using a slow, monitoring approach to figuring out which essential oils are best for you, with special attention on what the root cause of the asthma might be and what triggers asthma attacks. Of course, this is all within the approval of your physician and is only meant as additional support to any medical treatment.
