Essential Oils for Cough

Essential oils for cough….. What exactly is a cough? It’s a sudden explosive movement of air. What is the function of a cough? It’s to clear material from the airways.

The lungs and airways are protected by coughing, which is a familiar reflex but at the same time complicated. Coughing, along with other mechanisms, helps to protect the lungs from particles, which have been inhaled or aspirated. Coughing sometimes brings up sputum, also called phlegm, which is a mixture of mucus, debris, and cells expelled by the lungs.

Coughing occurs when the airways are irritated. A common cause of coughing is a respiratory infection, whether bacterial or viral, which irritates the airway.

Allergies can irritate the airways. People who smoke cough because of the irritation and damage to the cells that line the airways caused by smoking. Damage to the airways includes the hair-like projections, or cilia that normally cleanse the airways of debris.

Cough can vary considerably. A cough can be very distressing with episodes of chest pain, shortness of breath, or extremely large amounts of or very sticky sputum. On the other hand, if coughing develops over decades, as it may with a smoker, the person may hardly be aware of the cough.
