Fir Needle (Abies siberica) essential oil
Siberian Fir needle essential oil can be beneficial in the treatment of upper respiratory infections and congestion and the component bornyl acetate has been shown to be an analgesic with anti-inflammatory properties. Other components of this oil may offer a relaxing effect that can help with restlessness and insomnia.
Lavender (Lavandula augustifolia)
Lavender is well recognised to be useful in relieving sinus congestion and has also been documented to have pain relieving, antiseptic, antiviral and sedative effects.
German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla)
One beneficial component of German Chamomile oil is Azulene which has a very powerful anti-inflammatory effect. Other components of the oil promote relaxation and reduce inflammation by slowing the production of biochemicals called prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and histamines. German chamomile is used to treat inflammation (swelling) and irritation of the respiratory tract.
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) Essential Oil
The most prevalent terpene in this oil is thymol which has proven antimicrobial properties, effective against a number of bacterial strains. More importantly though in this formulation, thymol works as an anti-spasmodic, which can be useful in reducing coughs associated with respiratory tract infections.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Essential oil
Harnessed in this formulation for its analgesic (pain relieving) and antiseptic properties, peppermint can help alleviate the pain associated with headache, muscle aches and inflammation. Containing menthol, this oil can be effective at relieving nasal congestion, associated with colds, flu and sinusitis.
