Emphysema is a chronic pulmonary disease where airflow is restricted through the lungs due to destruction (typically caused by airborne toxins such as those in cigarette smoke) of the wall of the alveoli (small air sacs in the lungs where oxygen and carbon dioxide is exchanged with the blood). This destruction of the alveolar wall causes the alveoli to collapse when air is expelled from the lungs, trapping air inside.

Recommendation:

Eucalyptus, Respiratory Blend

Diffuse into the air, and inhale aroma.

Simple Solutions:

Add 1 drop eucalyptus to 1 tsp. (5 ml) fractionated coconut oil, and apply on chest and back.
