Our Favorite 2 Ways To Use Open-Air™:
In your dog's bath: Mix between 30 - 60 drops of Open-Air™ in @ 2 oz of 4-Legger Unscented Certified Organic Dog Shampoo to help relieve respiratory conditions. Download our information sheet for more information on dilutions. Don't forget to get a mixing bottle if you don't have one.
Aromatherapy: Add 2-4 drops of Open-Air™ in your water diffuser. When one of our own dogs had kennel cough we of course diffused. When the kennel cough got worse at night we moved the diffuser into the bathroom and turned the shower on to create a steam room while diffusing Open-Air™ and while holding the dog upright against our bodies. She was able to reset and sleep (although we had to sit upright in the bathroom holding her)!

Essential Oils of Tangerine (Citrus reticulate), Cinnamon (Cinnomomum zeylanicum), Spruce (Picea mariana), Copaiba (Copaifera officinalis), Eucalyptus radiata, Clove (Eugenia caryolphyllata), Helichrysum (H. italicum), Frankincense (Boswellia carterii), Lemon (Citrus limon), Marjoram (Origanum majorana), Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis C)
Tangerine: A natural antispasmodic to help reduce spasms (like persistent coughing), and an expectorant (helps with coughs) it helps to move blood and Qi and rid the body of damp.
Cinnamon: Helps to stimulate the immune system and increase circulation (beneficial to allow the immune system to reach the very small blood vessels of the lungs), reduce mucus, and aid in expectorant activity, and can also act as a mild analgesic for the respiratory tract, reducing pain and spasms associated with inflammation within the respiratory tract.
Spruce: Indicated for suppressed immune systems, bronchial conditions, spasms and coughing fits - it can act as an antiseptic for the air to help reduce transmission of respiratory infections and contamination of the environment around the affected animal. One of the other properties that make Spruce a "super star" is that it has cortisone-like activities to boost the body's immune system!
Copaiba: A strong anti-inflammatory agent helpful for broncho-pulmonary infections and a magnifier for all other oils used.
Eucalyptus: An anti-infectious, antibacterial, anti-viral, anticatarrhal (gets rid of excess mucus), an expectorant, and an anti-inflammatory. It is used for all sorts of conditions including rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavities), pharyngitis (inflammation of the tissues associated with the throat, vocal tissues, and oral areas associated with the respiratory tract), sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses), conjunctivitis (inflammation of the delicate tissues around the eyes - which are often affected with upper respiratory conditions), and bronchitis!
Clove: A strong and broad spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, antioxidant, and antiseptic. It is indicated for sinus conditions, bronchitis, and flu as it helps to relax respiratory irritation.
Helichrysum: Provides powerful healing and anti-inflammatory properties for the full body including respiratory benefits.
Frankincense: Known to be anti-catarrhal (mucus clearing), an expectorant, immune-stimulating, and is indicated for conditions such as bronchitis, asthma, cancers, and immune deficiencies. Frankincense also appears to act as a magnifying essential oil, which boosts the effect of other essential oils.
Lemon: Long known as a "disinfectant of the air", lemon has anti-infectious, antibacterial, antiseptic and antiviral properties and is beneficial to stimulate blood flow. Blood flow of course allows oxygen to reach areas that need healing.
Marjoram: Important to the respiratory tract as an anti-infectious, antibacterial, antiseptic, analgesic, expectorant, and diuretic (flushing excess fluids).
Rosemary: Rosemary of the Cineole variety carries properties of being anti-catarrhal, an expectorant, and a mucolytic. It helps to breaking up mucus in the respiratory tract and getting rid of it. It contributes to a "cooling" of the pulmonary system - which can feel incredibly beneficial with any respiratory concern.
