The study had participants take eucalyptus oil internally, and it’s also recommended to gargle with it to clear the throat.Eucalyptus essential oil is highly effective for treating respiratory problems, such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD, pneumonia and even tuberculosis. Using eucalyptus for asthma is a proven treatment that dilates the blood vessels and allows more oxygen into the lungs. Simply mix eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil and coconut oil for a Homemade Vapor Rub, and put on upper chest. Eucalyptus oil benefits are due to its ability to stimulate immunity, provide antioxidant protection and improve respiratory circulation.

Lavender is also known as a natural antioxidant which helps to prevent and reverse oxidative stress. Additionally, lavender helps relieve pain and increases mood, which are both very important properties of a blend commonly used for cold and flu season.
Breathing in or smelling peppermint oil can oftentimes immediately unclog your sinuses and offer relief to scratchy throats. Peppermint acts as an expectorant and may provide relief for colds, cough, sinusitis, asthma, and bronchitis. Peppermint oil is also highly effective at relaxing muscles in your nasal passages and can help clear out the muck and pollen during allergy season.
