Breathe Easy-Mixing Oils for Asthma

by Tiffany Saffold
(Louisville, KY, USA)

I am a Soldier who studies at night for Massage Therapy at Spencerian College. In my spare time I do a lot of research and studying to find out how Massage can help different people. I stumbled upon one of the things it helps and that's allergies and asthma. My son suffers from allergic asthma at a moderate to severe case at times. He's on 5 different medications and one is at an adult dosage but it still seemed to flare up.

One day I happened to pick up one of the books that I study with and read about how essential oils help to relieve symptoms of stuffiness and congestion that my son deals with. I went and bought baby oil and mixed two parts peppermint, one part jasmine, and filled the rest of the 2.5 oz vial with mineral oil and I use it on my son at night.

I give him a percussion massage (after he uses his spray), then a massage with the oil and he sleeps soundlessly without congestion or snoring and he breathes so much better and now when he goes to bed the first thing he asks for his massage! And he's 3 years old!.

Louisville is number one on the list for being the "worst" with allergies and many people suffer here from allergies and asthma. At work, I have actually been mixing the same concoction for my fellow Soldiers who have children who deal with the same thing.
