stimulating action on the bronchi makes coughing easier, thus encourage the natural eliminatory response that
brings bronchial secretions and other airborne matter up to the throat.
The expectorant effect of certain essential oils such as aniseed, angelica, basil, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger,
hyssop, pine, eucalyptus, fennel, sweet marjoram, rosemary, thyme, myrrh and frankincense. and their constituents has
been traditionally utilised in chest rubs and inhalations to improve bronchial secretion and reduce bronchial spasms.
BE Relieved helps with pain and inflammation and some of its essential oils have expectorant properties that might also
be of help if you are feeling a little ‘chesty’.
