    I was using an oil in my diffuser that was to help with congestion. Didn't help much.

    I was thinking that to breath in the mist with the oil might be doing more harm than good.

    I use essentail oils a lot. It's not miraculous, but I find it helps. I rub my chest, back, and the bottom of my feet with ravintsara or eucalyptus essential oil and use these oils in a diffuser. Sometimes, I put a few drops in the shower. It opens up my airways and makes it easier to spit out secretions.
