Do you have anyone in your family that deals with asthma? My sweet husband has dealt with asthma since he was a young child. He has pretty much been on preventative medication most of his life.
When we first me he carried a Primatene Mist inhaler! Seriously! If you don’t know what that is, then good for you! It was the nastiest smelling stuff!
He eventually found a good set of medications that kept his asthma at bay; most of the time. He would still have flare-ups here and there, but we finally had gotten to a point that he wasn’t admitted into the hospital every six months for an awful attack.
Fast forward to today. He is still on the same preventative, but I can tell that it is starting to not work as well. It may be due to the fact that you can now buy it as a generic, and I don’t believe that the generic is as good as the name brand. So for the last year he has been dealing with tightness in his chest almost every night.
Since I finally started learning more about Young Living, and how to use the essential oils to benefit my family, I have been looking for every opportunity to apply the knowledge I have gained. Which brings me to my “asthma recipe” that has been working wonders on my husband.
3-4 drops Eucalyptus Blue
3-4 drops Raven
3-4 drops RC
Rub these on the chest. Then take the hands you used to rub the essential oils in cup mouth and nose and breath deeply.
Jarret can feel the difference within a few minutes, and his airways are no longer constricted. If he is just having tightness in his chest rather than wheezing I do the following recipe.
Chest Tightness Recipe
1 drop Eucalyptus Blue
1 drop Raven
1 drop RC
Drop the oils into the hands. Cup nose and mouth. Inhale deeply!
Again, he says he can feel his chest open up and his breathing is so much easier after this. What is even more amazing is realizing it is not just my husband who benefits from the essential oils. I had a sweet friend message me on Facebook today wanting to know what she could do for her asthma and wheezing. She only had the Everyday Oil collection so her options were a bit limited, yet that did not stop her from trying something. Here is her testimonial…
I am so excited….I bought my starter kit months ago…But I had a brand new baby at the time and he has been my most challenging one yet…such a sweetheart…but learning more about the oils has been pushed to the back burner…Well I was having some asthma issues this morning and didn’t have an inhaler…Asked my friend Shanna out of my starter kit what could I use??? I put some peppermint right on my chest and my wheeze is GONE! I have had bad asthma my whole life so can’t believe a little peppermint oil got rid of the wheeze! Praising the Lord AND ready to learn and use more!!!
Did you read that!? All she used was a couple of drops of peppermint on her chest. My friend also has a son with severe asthma. She is looking forward to using the Peppermint on her son, and praying he has the same results. I know I will be trying Peppermint on my husband next time since it is a less expensive essential oil than the others listed above.
