Both Sabrina (my cat) and I have had trouble breathing lately. Me, because I’ve had some kind of nasty viral bug and have been flat on my back for over a week (no fun) and Sabrina, because she has asthma. My vet tech recommended that I buy a humidifier and spew moisture into the air to help us breathe easier. But that was not quite the answer I was looking for.
I read some Consumer Report reviews and learned that if I did not commit to cleaning a humidifier regularly, that I would produce a mold situation, a problem that would be worse than the asthma. I am not known for my regimented cleaning routines, so I consulted with a certified aromatherapist (Judi Fitzsimmons) and learned that the essential oil of Lavender is excellent for respiratory problems. Now I’m on a mission to find an aromatherapy diffuser, a device that disperses healing essential oils into the air while my cats and I sleep. I found some interesting diffusers here and will be ordering one soon. Hopefully, the one I choose will open up all passage ways so that not only air, but fresh inspiration can flow freely throughout the body while I sleep. Stay tuned.
