Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


Because I have asthma I often experience bronchitis which would normally last all winter long. Often it would turn into pneumonia. Using a full range of meds and inhalers, as well as a nebulizer when my symptoms warranted it, just seemed my way of life.

Then I had a friend who introduced me to quality essential oils. She gave me a sample of a dōTERRA's Breathe Respiratory blend. She told me to put a few drops on my throat and sternum.

That was 6 years ago and the last time I have needed to use my old regimen. I use this oil blend every night in a diffuser as well as in a piece of aromatherapy jewelry that I wear most of the time.

When I first started I went through a 15ml bottle of this blend in about 6 weeks, now the same bottle will last me 3-4 months. I still have asthma but tend to it completely with this oil blend. Sometimes I will use it topically several times in a day and other times I may go weeks without needing it.

The Breathe oil blend has Laurel Leaf (Bay), Peppermint, Eucalyptus radiata, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Lemon, Ravensara and Cardamom essential oils. It really opens the airways and is very calming!

I am so grateful that someone introduced me to essential oils. As a retired nurse I have found a new vocation, which is sharing the health benefits of essential oils with anyone who needs to increase their state of wellness.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: breathing,respiratory-system,lungs-/-pulmonary — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: breathing,respiratory-system,lungs-/-pulmonary,pneumonia,bronchitis — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
3.Associated topics: respiratory-system — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
4.Associated topics: respiratory-system,pneumonia,bronchitis — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
5.Associated topics: congestion-/-mucus-/-phlegm — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link

Thujaplicin and hinokitiol (the major component of Aomori Hiba [Hinoki]) also showed clear antibacterial activity against Legionella pneumophila SG 1 and L. pneumophila SG 3 [Legionnaires disease, pneumonia].... This compound showed strong insecticidal activity against Reticulitermes speratus [termites], and it also had clear acaricidal [ticks, mites] activity against Dermatophagoides farinae [house dust mites]....
