For lung congestion a salve or a massage oil containing essential oils can be rubbed over the chest, back and throat. The oils will be absorbed through the skin and lungs as the vapor is inhaled. Place a flannel fabric on the chest after rubbing in the oil to increase warmth. (Use only essential oils and never undiluted.)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 teaspoons peppermint oil
  • 3 teaspoons eucalyptus essential oils
  • 1 teaspoon thyme essential oil
  • 1 cup olive oil


  1. Warm olive oil over very low heat. Cool a bit, add essential oils, and stir.
  2. (Be sure to keep your face away from the oils as you stir them in.)
  3. Allow hardening.
  4. Store at room temperature.
