A mélange of essential oils with balsamic and disinfectant properties designed to provide relief in cases of colds and allergies. Essential oils that make up the blend The Respiro blend is made up of essential oils obtained from the following plants : eucalyptus (Eucaliptus globulus), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia), myrtle (Myrtus communis), mountain pine (Pinus mugo) and thyme (Thymus vulgaris).

The plants from which essential oils are obtained

There are many eucalyptus trees, there is an entire genus of plants in the Myrtaceae family which is called the Eucalyptus genus, and some plants of the Corymbia genus are also called eucalyptus in the same family.

But Eucalyptus globulus, c'est the eucalyptus par excellence, is a tree of considerable size, native to Australia like all other species of the genus, it normally reaches 40 or 50 meters, but can also reach 70 or 80. It is an evergreen and the most common common name by which it is known is Tasmanian blue gum.

The officinal lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is a native plant of the Mediterranean bac belonging to the Lamiaceae family. All lavenders appear as a bush or shrub, the color of the flowers is always the well-known purple, it is the term angustifolia in the scientific name that reveals the distinctive feature of this species, the narrow leaves. The common name Melaleuca alternifolia is arbre à thé, i.e. tea tree, but it has nothing to do with the English favorite drink. The name is only the result of the observation that the indigenous people in Australia made a drink similar to a spiced tea.

The arbre à thé is a small tree (it does not exceed two or three meters in height) which usually grows in the wild near of streams and marshes. The leaves are linear, from 10 to 35 mm long and the white flowers gathered in clusters between 3 and 5 centimeters.

Myrtle (Myrtus communis) is an aromatic plant belonging to the Myrtaceae family and the Myrtus genre. It looks like a shrub or bush and is typical of the Mediterranean maquis. To be a shrub and not a tree it can reach considerable dimensions, it starts from half a meter but can reach 3 meters, in the case of very old plants even 4 or 5. The leaves are dark green and oval, the white or pinkish flowers are symmetrical and have long filaments, the fruits are globular berries of dark color. The mountain pine or simply mountain pine belongs to the Pinaceae family but it is not a tree, it is an evergreen needle-like bush. It is a spontaneous medicinal plant. In reality, the habit can be very variable depending on the conditions, it can appear as a bush, shrub and sometimes even a small tree. The needle-like leaves from 3 to 5 cm long are gathered in whorls of two. The cones (pine cones) are cones 3 to 5 cm long. Thymus vulgaris is one of the ten species of the genus Thymus of the Lamiaceae family present in Italy, the appearance is that of a small evergreen shrub (it reaches a height between 10 and 30 centimeters) and slow growth. The leaves are small, needle-shaped and are arranged in opposite pairs, each pair arranged at right angles to the previous one. The inflorescences are formed by flowers grouped in whorls placed at the end of the stems.

Properties of the essential oils present in the Respiro blend

It seems almost useless to write that eucalyptus essential oil is the balsamic essential oil par excellence, due to this property it is used by the pharmaceutical industry but also by the confectionery industry. The expectorant and balsamic properties are used as appropriate in fumigation, aromatherapy and chest massages. It also boasts disinfectant properties and as such it was already used by the aborigines. Lavender essential oil is essentially a sedative, therefore in a mixture to soothe the discomfort of respiratory tract diseases it can be useful as such even if it does not have a particular balsamic effect, moreover it is also attributed light anti-inflammatory properties. L'huile d'arbre à thé is one of the essential oils with the highest disinfectant power, in topical use it is even used against fungi and warts, in aromatherapy it is recommended to disinfect the air. Myrtle is another plant with balsamic properties and the essential oil of myrtle similarly to that ofThe eucalyptus is appreciated for its balsamic and disinfectant properties. It is used in the same way, both with massages and by inhalation. The mountain pine essential oil has balsamic and anti-inflammatory properties, it is recommended both in aromatherapy and for fumigation to facilitate breathing. The essential oil of thyme with its balsamic properties also combines marked disinfectant properties, so much so that it is used precisely for the latter by the pharmaceutical industry, for example in toothpaste.
