I experienced pneumonia for the first time this December. Besides antibiotics and Chinese medicine, manuka honey (UMF25) and eucalyptus globulus essential oil helped me to recover from it. Eucalyptus globulus essential oil was new to me. This oil kills bacteria of the lower respiratory tract in a very efficient way.
I have always used tea tree essential oil to protect myself from a variety of viruses and bacteria. Tea tree essential oil or eucalyptus radiata essential oil workes for the upper respiratory tract, but they don’t work for the lower respiratory tract.
As the Earth’s environment gets worse, we should be careful about having respiratory diseases. I will add eucalyptus globulus oil in my first aid kit on my travels.
