Essential Oil Treatments for Catarrhal Conditions
Chronic catarrh is generally a symptom of underlying inflammatory bodily response by dietary allergen or environmental response. These conditions occur with influenza, colds or other upper respiratory problems and sometimes connected to allergic cases. Irritants such as pollen, fumes, fungal spores, perfumes, chemicals or smoke are also some of the culprits.
Even as you avoid taking heavy and very large meals while receiving as much fresh air, sleep, sunshine and exercise as you can, avoid smoky, polluted or dusty atmospheres as much as you can. Essential oils working as inhalants aid in decongesting sinuses while providing their antibacterial benefits. They include: Elemi, Myrtle and Spearmint.
