The next time you suffer from cough, try using essential oils to deal with it. These oils are not only effective but also are also less likely to cause any side effects. Here are few simple ways to use essential oils to breathe easier.
Make a DIY essential oil vapour rub to fight cough. Healing oils like lavender, eucalyptus and tea tree can eliminate mucus, relax the body, and soothe your cough. Moreover, they work when applied topically so you don't need to take any drugs.
Steam inhalation is an amazing way to clear your head and throat when you have a bad cough and cold. Add one drop of eucalyptus oil to a bowl of 4-6 cups of steaming water and inhale to get rid of cough at home.
Aromatherapy baths containing essential oils can work in the bath too. Inhaling the hot and steamy air can well help you to cough and clear your throat as well. Try adding few drops of essential oils in hot water while taking a bath.
Inhaling essential oils can also help in suppressing cough and also soothe the airways and clear up your sinuses. All you have to do it put 1-2 drops of essential oil on a piece of cloth (handkerchief) and keep inhaling throughout the day.
