Herbal Vaporizers – Medicinal Herbs

The study of herbs and their uses makes up an entire branch of medicine that has been in place for thousands of years in every part of the world.  Here is just a partial list of ailments and symptoms successfully treated with herbs throughout the ages:

  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • Chronic Pain
  • Cold & Flu Symptoms
  • Depression
  • Glaucoma
  • Hayfever
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Insomnia
  • Laryngitis
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Sinusitis
  • Stress
  • Wheezing upon exertion

More specifically, medicinal herbs, such as eucalyptus, sage, and thyme, are beneficial in treating asthma; lavender and chamomile relieve stress.  Other herbs commonly used are basil, hyssop, jasmine, peppermint, and ginger.  If you are looking for most efficient way to take your herbs, this is it!  Vaporizing has two major benefits:  first, you are ingesting the natural, pure herb without the harmful effects of smoking; second, relief is almost instantaneous.  And face it – when you’re having a pounding headache or asthma attack, you want relief now – not in twenty minutes.    Herbs have been administered for centuries to calm, to induce sleep, to ease breathing, to energize, and to stimulate.  Now, with the advent of the herbal vaporizer, the delivery system is finally equal to the benefits of the treatment.

To give you a better idea of what an herbal vaporizer can do for you, let’s look at one of the ailments most commonly treated by using one– asthma and/or other breathing problems. The way the herbal vaporizer works is by heating the herb just to the degree that it releases its essential oils into a vapor that is then inhaled.  The usual herbs to treat asthma include eucalyptus and mint, with a little thyme thrown in.  This combination not only relaxes constricted bronchial tubes but also reduces phlegm.

But, as mentioned, asthma is not the only breathing challenge that an herbal vaporizer can help with.  Nettles have been shown to relieve the misery of hayfever sufferers, and rosemary mixed with thyme and chamomile are said to increase circulation and help unblock stuffy sinuses.  This particular combination may also be used for symptoms related to colds, flu, and sinusitis.  And, if you are jogger, swimmer, hiker, or any other type of active person who experiences wheezing upon extended exertion, the above treatments are meant for you, too.
