A potent blend of essential oils studied and backed up by science to help ease the symptoms of respiratory issues caused by a virus or bacteria.
The lungs are ground zero for the likes of SARS, the flu and coronaviruses as they are all respiratory diseases caused by a viral infection. People start out with a fever or cough which may then progress to pneumonia or worse.
The World Health Organization reported that the disease typically attacks the lungs in three phases: viral replication, immune hyper-reactivity, and pulmonary destruction.
The new or (novel) coronavirus appears to follow the same patterns of the previous SARS virus causing similar reactions in the lungs.
Mucus is formed to protect the lungs from a virus or bacteria via an inflammatory response initiated by the immune system.
Usually, that’s good enough to deal with most pathogens but sometimes your immune system goes haywire and starts initiating cell death in healthy cells by mistaking them for the pathogen/virus/bacteria.
Now to alleviate these symptoms Inflammation/excess mucus and the reduction or destruction of the pathogen inhaling essential oil vapor into the lungs has beneficial and medically studied proven results.
You can read all the scientific/medical studies below for your reference and the appreciation for the power of nature and how it can help in these strange times.
Often times natural remedies get overlooked as potent therapies because they are not patentable(companies can’t make money from it and testing costs a huge amount of money – the medical industry is a business at the end of the day!)
The other reason is that nature is hard to produce/manufacture with consistent results for drugs and therapies that need a steady dose or strength that can deliver the same result again and again.
Just to be clear though, no essential oils have been tested on the current COVID-19 strain of the coronavirus. What we’re suggesting is to look at the symptoms of the current COVID-19 and the effects it has on the respiratory system and use the clinically studied science of essential oils inhaled via a nebuliser, vaporiser, diffuser or steam vapor directly into the lungs where the problem exists.
We’ve created a blend based on the studies available to all across the Internet, that deal with the inflammation, the mucus production and possibly, the reduction/destruction of the pathogen.
For the destruction/reduction theory, one study of Tea Tree and Eucalyptus had a significant effect on the influenza virus inactivating the pathogen and reducing its replication process. If you can slow it down, it gives your body/immune system a better chance to fight it.
Our Blend should at the very least, reduce the inflammation and mucus production in the lungs.
This carefully curated blend is some of the best natural medicine that can be inhaled into the lungs or applied onto the skin via a carrier oil for dilution.
An interesting study involving a child hospitalised with the respiratory syncytial virus, pneumonia, and acute respiratory distress.
Previously she had been on oxygen for 18 days to help her breathe, after the 8th day of being in hospital, they discontinued the current therapies as they weren’t working and started giving her inhalations through a nebuliser of the Essential Oils:
Spike lavender, Spanish marjoram, Balsam fir, and Peppermint.
Within 12 hours oxygen requirement was reduced and blood oxygen saturation was increased. Then on the second day, she was completely weaned off oxygen and discharged.
