When I cough or have breathing problems

My testimony

I rarely get sick. I think that “bathing” on a daily basis in hydrosols and essential oils has something to do with it. Just like living in the countryside and in a preserved environment. On the other hand, when I go to town for a few days, I regularly catch a cold, which almost always manifests itself in me as a cough. If I don't get it under control quickly, the initial dry cough quickly turns into a hoarse, barking cough that I have trouble getting rid of. Since I have been using hydrosols, most of the time I have been able to stop my coughing quite quickly and no longer have to bark.

My tip

As soon as I feel a cold coming on and I start coughing, I take giant fir hydrosol. Often and in all its forms! I take a tablespoon of hydrosol in a glass of lukewarm water every 2 hours. I diffuse it, at least for 3 hours during the day, in combination or alternating with Douglas fir and thujanol thyme hydrosol (I fill the diffuser tray with the hydrosol). And to combine the effects, I put the equivalent of a teaspoon of giant fir hydrosol in the palm of my hand and apply it to the chest and throat. In addition, when my throat itches and makes me cough, I gargle with noble laurel hydrosol. To do this, I take the equivalent of a large tablespoon of pure hydrosol, 3 or 4 times a day, and I don't forget to spit it out!
I would be lying a bit if I stopped there… When I was younger, my grandmother always recommended taking a grog for a cough. She advised me to put honey and rum in hot milk. I follow his advice, adding a tablespoon of giant fir hydrosol and a tablespoon of thujanol thyme, for an aromatic grog.

What does herbal medicine say?

Cough is due to irritation of the mucous membranes of the throat or bronchi. The causes can be multiple (dry air, allergies, dust), but coughing is often a harbinger of a cold. In this case, the dry cough frequently becomes wet (productive) or hoarse. A cough that mainly occurs at night may be a sign of an allergy or gastric reflux.
Giant fir hydrosol, with its composition of more than 80% alpha-terpineol, borneol and bornyl acetate, is a very good respiratory antiseptic and decongestant, particularly suitable for coughs (dry and oily), colds, of bronchitis. Its spasmolytic, calming and anti-inflammatory properties are also useful in cases of cough, whether irritant or viral.

Did you know ?

In case of allergic cough, giant fir will be suitable for its anti-inflammatory, calming and spasmolytic properties, but it is interesting to combine it with tarragon, chamomile and yarrow hydrosols, for their anti-allergic effects. They can be taken as an internal treatment and distributed

I use hydrosols SAFELY

The proposed tip refers to classic methods of using an organic and food hydrosol. It therefore does not present any contraindication. Giant fir hydrosol is very gentle and can also be used in small children from 1 year old. Internally, the tablespoons should in this case be replaced by teaspoons (before 1 year, we will limit ourselves to diffusion and pectoral massage).

ABIES GRANDIS the giant tree

The giant fir is a conifer native to North America, established in Europe around 1830. It is one of the largest fir trees, reaching 80 m in height, hardy, withstanding temperatures down to -20°C. It is an important forest species in France, productive thanks to rapid growth. Its white wood, easy to work, is used in furniture, construction and stationery. Its needles, flexible and not very sharp, give off a very pleasant citrus scent. It is a very good respiratory antiseptic.
