Breathing comes naturally and is the essence of life. Respiration is the transport of oxygen from the outside air to the cells within tissues, and the transport of carbon dioxide in the opposite direction. Each of our cells respires metabolically, where nutrients are converted into useful energy. Touch of Earth’s Respiratory Grande blend is designed to maximize the breath of life throughout the body, enriching oxygen flow to all the vital organs, muscles and more.
Poor air quality, pollen, dust, allergens and even fragrances can impact the upper respiratory system negatively. That’s why we’ve created a blend of essential oils to boost the active transport of oxygen into the bloodstream. The body breathes in through the nose and mouth, where all oxygen and external bodies may be introduced. From there, a series of the body’s defenses attempt to prevent the entry of foreign bodies into the pulmonary system, such as cilia, mucous membranes and mast cells.
After being breathed in, air is transported through the esophagus to the lungs, where tiny bronchioles open and close (dilate and constrict) to allow free passage of air. Within each bronchiole are several thousand blood vessels or capillaries that control the diameter of the bronchiole’s opening. When the bronchioles don’t get enough oxygen, when they get inflamed or even fatigued, their ability to perform regularly and reliably is impacted. Ineffective or inefficient oxygen transport can lead to a series of breakdowns in the body that can make one sick.
Leveraging the vasodilating properties of eucalyptus, the antiseptic and circulatory properties of palmarosa, cinnamon, lavender and frankincense, and the overall combination of stress-reducing benefits from each essence, Respiratory Grande provides a soothing salve to the constant assault on our system from airborne particulates.
From the outside assault on the upper respiratory system to the inner pulmonary system, Respiratory Grande works with the body to optimize autonomic responses. Increased blood flow through dilated blood vessels, antiseptic reduction of proteins and antigens coating introduced bacteria and pathogens, and the alleviation of stress-related nervous exhaustion on adrenal glands, hormonal responses and the limbic system create a balanced environment that allows the body to compensate, adjust and in many cases, prevent against the fullest expression of infection.
Respiratory Grande can be inhaled, used in room diffusers and humidifiers safely for all ages. For a boost to the immune system, apply a few drops of Respiratory Grande to the chest, back and feet via massage. Add Respiratory Grande to a bath for an indulgent, soothing and balancing way to prevent ailments. Whatever method you choose, using Respiratory Grande is a great way to help encourage normal respiratory function, boost immune response, and keep balanced.
