Respiratory System


The bronchi are the two main branches of the trachea that carry air from the trachea into the lungs. They further divide into smaller bronchioles within the lungs.

Importance: The bronchi serve as conduits for air to enter the lungs, where oxygen is exchanged for carbon dioxide in the alveoli.

Herbs that support respiratory health, such as Mullein and Licorice root, are used to alleviate coughs, soothe irritation, and promote bronchial health. These herbs can be taken as teas, tinctures, or inhaled as steam.


The lungs are the primary organs of the respiratory system, responsible for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. They consist of lobes and millions of tiny air sacs called alveoli.

Importance: Lungs are vital for the oxygenation of the blood, enabling the body to receive oxygen and release carbon dioxide, a waste product.

Herbs like Eucalyptus and Peppermint are known for their potential to support lung health and relieve congestion. These herbs can be used in inhalations, teas, or as essential oils to promote healthy breathing.


The trachea, or windpipe, is a tube that connects the larynx to the bronchi. It carries air to and from the lungs.

Importance: The trachea serves as a passage for air to travel to and from the lungs, ensuring proper respiration.

Herbs and practices that soothe the trachea can provide relief from respiratory discomfort. Honey and ginger, for example, can be consumed to soothe a sore throat and support tracheal health. Steam inhalation with herbs like eucalyptus can also help clear the airways.
