    Default Best essential oils for bronchitis?

    If I got one or two essential oils for treating bronchitis, which would you suggest? And would that be to inhale them, rub them on my chest, ingest with water, or what? And then, if I could get more, which ones, in which order? I'm getting better, but I still have congestion. I mostly cough at night. I have been looking this up, but every article mentions so many different oils that it's a bit mind-boggling to know where to start.

    Just to clarify, I'm doing a number of other natural treatments already, and they're helping. But I thought it'd be helpful to use some essential oils also. I'm taking two local teas known to be excellent for getting rid of lung congestion (they even have pubmed studies, lol), using mustard plasters, getting extra rest, and taking ginger, vitamin C, turmeric, etc.

    Patty, sorry I can't help with the oils, but I have a chronic lung condition and take NAC (N-acetyl Cysteine) all the time. It helps to loosen a cough, 500 mg three times a day. I buy it online from iherb.

    Thanks, Julie. I'll look into it, but I don't know when next we'll have someone coming from the US to bring anything to us.

    Patty, I've read repeatedly that dairy is frequently a cause of mucus and congestion. Have you ever considered that, or has that already been something you experimented with?
