Support respiratory health with a custom respiratory blend

I’ve struggled with respiratory issues for years. As someone with asthma and seasonal allergies, keeping my airways open and healthy is incredibly important. After trying countless over-the-counter medications and remedies with limited success, I decided to take matters into my own hands by creating a custom essential oil blend specifically formulated to support respiratory health.

Why I wanted a custom blend

The main reasons I wanted to create my own respiratory blend were:

  • Greater control over ingredients. With a custom blend, I can hand-pick soothing, beneficial oils and avoid anything that aggravates my system. This level of personalization is hard to find in generic drugstore brands.

  • Ability to address multiple issues. I wanted a blend that could ease asthma symptoms, open up airways, reduce inflammation, and support immunity – all in one bottle. Layering single-note oils for each issue was messy and inefficient.

  • More natural solution. Many OTC asthma and allergy medications come with lengthy lists of artificial chemicals and side effects. I hoped that plant-based essential oils would provide relief without taxing my system further or causing unwanted reactions.

Choosing ingredients for my blend

Creating a custom respiratory blend requires carefully selecting individual essential oils that can benefit breathing and lung health. Below are the key oils I chose and why:


  • Well-documented in research for supporting upper respiratory health
  • Helps clear nasal and bronchial congestion
  • Refreshing, opening aroma


  • Traditionally used to relieve chest tightness and coughing
  • Invigorating scent can open airways
  • Anti-inflammatory and soothing properties


  • Bright, clean scent helps dispel respiratory funk
  • Assists with nasal and lung drainage
  • Provides an energizing aroma


  • Calming, floral aroma
  • Reduces respiratory irritation and discomfort
  • Supports restful breathing

Creating my custom respiratory blend

With my ingredient list set, it was time to start blending. I used the following best practices when creating my custom respiratory oil:

  • Used a carrier oil as a base. I chose fractionated coconut oil, which easily absorbs and won’t go rancid. This also dilutes the strong essential oils to skin-safe levels.

  • Mindfully combined oils in small batches. I only made 5 mL (or 1 teaspoon) at a time, slowly adding drops of essential oils and taking careful notes on my blend ratios as I went. This prevented waste and allowed me to perfect my formulation.

  • Tuned in to my senses. As I added new oils, I repeatedly smelled my blend to gauge its intensity and effects. I also tested small amounts on my skin to check for any irritation before moving forward. This helped me find the optimal balance.

My go-to respiratory blend

After plenty of mini batches, sensory tests, and ratio adjustments, I arrived at my winning respiratory blend recipe with the perfect note balance:


  • 1 oz (30 mL) Fractionated Coconut Oil (carrier oil base)
  • 12 drops Eucalyptus
  • 8 drops Peppermint
  • 6 drops Lemon
  • 4 drops Lavender

I use this custom oil daily by applying a few drops to my chest, throat, temples, and palms, then inhaling deeply. The opening mint-eucalyptus notes help clear my airways immediately, while the lavender and lemon provide calm and clarity.

This simple blend has completely changed my respiratory self-care routine for the better. I can finally breathe easy, naturally, thanks to the power of plants in their purest form.
