Best Herbs To Vaporize For Medical Benefit

images-4Whether you are trying to get over a common cold or you need a little pick-me-up, the right herb can offer a healthy alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. For centuries, herbs have been used to treat ailments and relieve symptoms. Inhaling herbs is one of the fastest methods for receiving medicinal benefit from the plant. In addition to medicinal benefits, one enjoys aromatherapy as well. See what herbs you could be benefiting from with your vaporizer.

Peppermint

Peppermint can be found pretty much anywhere. This herb is distinguished for its minty taste. Peppermint effects a wide range of ailments. The National Center for Biotechnology Information published a study July 2007 in the Journal of Gastroenterology which describes peppermint as the “drug of first choice” for IBS patients, showing a 50 percent reduction in IBS symptoms among 75 percent who tried it. Inhaling peppermint can also relieve muscle spasms, act as an antiseptic, relieve headaches, ease gas, enhance memory, increase alertness and reduce nausea. It also acts as an expectorant and decongestant, helping clear the respiratory tract and reducing inflammation with asthma.

Lavender

Lavender is the most-used essential oil in the world. Lavender has been used for medicinal and therapeutic purposes for over 2,500 years. With it’s fantastic floral aroma, it has been known to stimulate blood flow, restore skin complexion, slow aging, alleviate headaches, improve sleep and relax muscular tension. Not only affecting the muscular system, lavender also reduces anxiety, relieves stress and acts as an antidepressant.

Chamomile

Popular across Europe and West Asia where it is found growing wildly, chamomile has traditionally been taken orally to ease indigestion. However, once vaporized, it acts as a relaxant, boosting the immune system and promoting sleep. In a 1990 study published in the European Journal of Pharmacology, chamomile steam inhaled reduced symptoms of the common cold by increasing levels of urinary hippurate. This amino acid is associated with increased antibacterial activity in the body.
