Oil Summary: Organic Inula oil is well known as the most effective oil for loosening mucous and deep congestion, and useful for acute and chronic respiratory conditions such as coughs, colds, sinusitis, laryngitis and bronchitis. It is widely used in aromatherapy for the treatment of asthma due to its bronchospasmolytic and mucolytic properties. Inula essential oil is extracted from the flower tops of the Inula herb through steam distillation. It is quite rare and expensive. Regardless, its usefulness in health and wellness cannot be overstated. Moreover, it blends well with many other oils, including Lavender, Rose, Grapefruit, Frankincense, Lemon, and Rosemary. The Inula plant is native to the Mediterranean region. The name Inula is derived from the Greek word Inaein, which means ‘to clean.’ In ancient Greece, Inula roots were used to aid in digestion. Later, the aroma from the plant’s boiled leaves and flowers was discovered to be effective against pulmonary complaints and coughs. Today, Inula oil is widely used to treat chronic and acute bronchitis, severe coughs, and laryngitis. Its chemical composition comprises elements that make it effective at balancing and soothing, aiding digestion, healing the skin, and fighting infections.
