Essential Oils for Respiratory Relief

Is it just us or does all the pollen in the air seem determined to prevent the flow of oxygen into your body?

I love to diffuse essential oils to help keep those nasal passages open.  I often find myself sprinkling a few drops of essential oil onto the sidebar in the shower, right before turning on the hot steaming water. Deciding to make shower melts was just the next natural step. I love them so much!

I use my Breathe Free Essential Oil Blend, but any of these oils will help you out! These are not the only oils for respiratory use, but they are my favorites.


  • Eucalyptus – Head clearing. Cooling. Balancing. Stimulant. Invigorating. Healing. Purification. Consecration. Protection. Renewal.  Heightens mental focus. 
  • Peppermint – Cooling. Clears the mind. Lifts the spirits. Wakes you up. Helps with fatigue. Purification. Consecration. Luck. Happiness. Love. Prosperity. Protection. Psychic development & growth. Release. Renewal. Transformation. 
  • Spearmint – Warming. Restorative. Helps clear the mind and brings focus.  Assists with fatigue, nervous strain, and stress relief. Brighten disposition. Consecration. Luck. Happiness. Prosperity. Protection. Renewal. Rest. Transformation.

  • 2 Mixing bowls 
  • Optional: Food Coloring 



  1. Add the cornstarch into one of the mixing bowls
  2. In the second bowl, combine 1/2 cup water and mix in your food coloring (how much will vary depending on how dark you want the color to be).
  3. Add 5-7 drops of essential oil to the bowl with the water mixture and stir. 
  4. Begin adding the water mixture 2 tablespoons at a time, mixing the water in after every 2 Tbsp to disperse the color. Continue adding until you have a thick paste.
