When it comes to your lungs – coughing, cold, flu, bronchitis, chest congestion, mucus that thick fleem in your respiratory tract… I want to share something with you that’s going to make a remarkable change so you can feel better quickly.

And when it comes to antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, there’s nothing like tea tree oil. Tea tree oil has amazing mucolytic properties, meaning it helps dissolve mucus in your respiratory tract, all the way up into the sinuses.

But what’s really miraculous about this oil is that it does so many other things for your body. Like removing funguses from toenails by applying a drop or two on the nail. If you’re sensitive, you can mix it with a carrier oil or lotion. It can also do wonderful things for acne with its antibacterial properties.

Hundreds of thousands of people have benefited from using tea tree oil. Some people put it directly on the acne, although I would recommend diluting it because you may be sensitive to tea tree oil.

Tea tree oil has a unique and very refreshing scent. When you just inhale it a little bit, those fumes affect our olfactory nerve within our nasal area. It sends messages to the limbic system of our brain, which changes your emotions, makes you feel relaxed, takes depression away, and causes endorphins to be released. You feel happier. You might want to try that, besides using it for your lungs.

The research shows that tea tree oil definitely has medicinal healing properties. So, let’s get right to the nuts and bolts. What are some things you can do to get these quick results?

Again, you can put a few drops of tea tree oil in a diffuser. Let the steam move into the room and allow that steam to get up into your nasal area and down into the respiratory tract. It works as a great mucus and it takes away coughs. It will help you breathe better. It heals through these antimicrobial properties that tea tree oil carries.

Another thing you can do is put a drop or two in boiling water, put a little towel over your head, and let the fumes/vapors make their way up to the nasal area. Alternatively, you can boil some water, take a rolled-up towel, and put a few drops on it. Then, put it up next to your nose. People have responded very well to this method.

My favorite is to take a few drops of tea tree oil and put it on a tissue. Don’t put it under your pillow, but put it next to your pillow. The healing fumes seem to do wonderful things for your respiratory tract. You’ll immediately feel it in your sinuses – a tingling sensation stimulating the olfactory nerve. Your congestion will start to subside, and you’ll be able to breathe easier not only through your sinuses but also down into your respiratory tract, all the way into your lungs.

So, you may want to consider putting a couple of drops on a tissue next to your pillow when you go to bed. Not only will you sleep better through the night, but when you wake up, you’ll be shocked at how much better you feel.
