All-natural Bronchitis Remedy

We have been on vacation – an amazing and wonderful vacation. Less

than a week into the vacation I contracted Bronchitis – really bad bronchitis. My husband followed suit about a week later. The symptoms have been awful. In fact, I really thought at first, I was getting the flu.

Not on vacation……. NOOOOOOOOO!

Bronchitis can be either bacterial or viral in nature. It can come out of nowhere as mine did and make you wonder if you were hit by a truck and didn’t know it!! As I mentioned at first, I began to think I was coming down with the flu. I had body aches, temperature, uncontrollable coughing, sore throat and a headache.

But thankfully I always travel with my dōTERRA Essential Oils. Not too sure what we would have done without them.

I looked at what I had and pulled the following to begin making my capsules. I added my essential oils to the veggie caps 4 times a day and I am feeling 100% better!!

YAY for the oils!!

I want to share with you what I used:

Empty veggie caps

2 drops each





1 drop each






Top off with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Essential Oils are fat soluble, and this will help with absorption.

I would like to give you a brief description of the oils I chose for my “Bronchitis” Blend.

Although these Essential Oils possess many different health benefits, for the purpose of discussing Bronchitis specifically I will limit the information to the Respiratory and Immune System benefits.


Rosemary has many health benefits such as supporting healthy digestion and respiratory system support.

Rosemary may help with opening your airway passages and fight resistant bacteria. Use with caution or not at all if you have epilepsy or high blood pressure.
