How I Treated a Respiratory Issue ... Learning About Essential Oils in 100 Days

I was sick with respiratory issues for 2 days this past week!

First, let me say that I am not a doctor so take what you're about to read with a grain of salt. Consult a physican or other medical personnel for the appropriate treatment needed for medical issues. 

I am learning about herbal remedies and essential oils and having just come from the doctor for a well check-up the day before I got sick, and having a history of dealing with respiratory issues, I felt like this was something I wanted to try to treat myself.  Please note that I would have gone back to the doctor had the following treatment not worked or my symptons gotten worse.  

Here's what I did ...

I started taking cider fire in orange juice every 4 hours

I used Breathe essential oil (from Doterra) in a diffuser.  I was suprised at how well this worked!

I rested, I mean I really rested and did only what was necessary

I drank lemon essential oil in water (1 drop oil to 8 oz water) with a donk of stevia.  I had already been drinking lemon juice in my water but since I'm learning about essential oils I thought this was a good time to try lemon essential oil.  It was more lemony and had a better taste (in my opinion) than bottled lemon juice.  (I've read that lemon water is good for detoxing and respiratory issues.) 

... and it worked!

In 24 hours I noticed a huge improvement. I continued to run the diffuser and drink lemon water for another 24 hours.  I will continue to be on alert for any returning symptons but for now I am sympton free and feeling fine!

What herbal and/or essential oils do you use to treat respiratory issues?
