1. Dorado Azul: What can I say, it’s my all time favorite respiratory supporting essential oil! With it’s herbaceous scent, it’s great to add to a diffuser or applied topically to the chest.
2. R.C.: Dana’s favorite respiratory supporting essential oil is R.C. She uses this essential oil blend on her young children throughout the winter months. She dilutes it with V-6 vegetable oil and then applies it to their chests or adds it to a diffuser. R.C. is a combination of Cypress, Spruce, and three types of Eucalyptus (E. globulus, E. radiata, and E. citriodora) oils, and includes the naturally occurring constituent limonene. R.C. may be applied before exercise to uplift and inspire, or massaged on your feet before bedtime to encourage an atmosphere of comfort. R.C. can also be used in place of Aroma Siez™ in Young Living’s Raindrop Technique®.
3. Eucalyptus Radiata: This is my 2nd favorite respiratory supporting essential oil. I find that it doesn’t smell as strong as Dorado Azul, but still is a powerful essential oil. Adding it to a bath is a great way to support the respiratory system. You can also create aromatherapy shower discs. See the recipe below.
Aromatherapy Shower Discs (from www.homegrownandhealthy.com)
- Baking Soda
- Muffin Tins
- Foil Lined Muffin Liners
- Young Living Essential Oils
- Mix 1 cup of baking soda with 1 heaping tablespoon of cornstarch. Wisk these dry ingredients together, ridding your mixture of any baking soda clumps.
- Slowly add in 1/3 cup water.
- Pour this concoction into foil lined muffin liners in your muffin tin.
- Let this set for 18 hours or for more immediate results, bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. I have found that baking these discs results in liners that are much easier to remove.
- Once they have completely cooled, remove the liners and add 4-5 drops of your choice of essential oils.
- Be sure to store them in an airtight container to prevent evaporation and to retain their aromas.
4. Raven: This essential oil blend contains Ravintsara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus Radiata. Raven’s combination of deeply soothing therapeutic grade essential oils will provide comfort when applied topically to the chest and throat or diffused.
5. Ravintsara: Dana’s 2nd favorite respiratory supporting essential oil. She typically mixes R.C. with Ravintsara for extra respiratory support throughout the winter months.
All of the respiratory supporting essential oils may be applied topically, added to a diffuser, or added to a diffuser necklace. We dilute these powerful essential oils for young children and people with sensitive skin.

While in Ecuador in November 2015, we had the opportunity to spend time with Gary Young. We asked Gary which Respiratory Supporting Essential Oil is his favorite. Note that I asked him off camera first, so he had fun with me while I videoed his response.
