How to Breathe Ozone Bubbled Through Olive Oil (with Pictures)
Breathing ozone bubbled through olive oil or Breathing Ozonated Olive Oil (BOO) is a form of ozone treatment for the respiratory tract and sinuses.
Here I show a step-by-step guide how to breathe ozone bubbled through olive oil with an oxygen tank and the Promolife Mini ozone generator.
Equipment you need to breathe ozone bubbled through olive oil
The equipment I used in this guide employs a triple anti-oil protection to make sure no oil gets into the ozone generator.
- Oxygen source, here it’s an oxygen tank and regulator
- Ozone generator
- Check valve
- Oil bubbler
- Nasal cannula
- Silicone tubing
- Luer lock connectors
- Olive oil

How to breathe ozone bubbled through olive oil, step-by-step:
- Screw the low flow regulator onto the oxygen tank.
2. Take a piece of tubing and connect one end to the regulator.
3. Take a luer lock connector and push it into the other end of the silicone tubing.
4. Connect the other end of the tubing with the oxygen in port of the ozone generator using a luer lock connector.
5. Take another luer lock connector, another piece of silicone tubing and a check valve and assemble it as demonstrated.
6. Attach the just assembled silicone piece to the “Ozone Out” port of the ozone generator.
7. Take another piece of silicone tubing and connect one end to the check valve, the other to the inlet of the trap.
8. Take the oil bubbler, remove the top with the stem, and pour olive oil inside a good 2/3 full. Close the bubbler.
9. Take another piece of silicone tubing and connect the trap with the oil bubbler.
10. Take yet another piece of silicone tubing and connect it with the outlet of the oil bubbler.
11. Take a luer lock connector and insert it into the end of the silicone tubing.
12. Connect the nasal cannula with the luer lock connector which goes from the oil bubbler.
13. Set the trap and the bubbler into a box.
14. Fill the box with bubble wrap to make sure the bottles don’t fall over.
15. Turn the valve of the oxygen tank half way open.
16. Open the regulator to 1/2 LPM.
17. Check if bubbles are forming inside the oil bubbler. If so, then you connected everything correctly. If not, you need to check everything and connect in the correct order.
18. Make sure the ozone generator is plugged into the power supply.
19. Turn the ozone generator on. Recommended ozone concentration is low: between 10 to 20 mcg/ml.
20. Put the nasal cannula on.
21. Sit comfortably, make sure you don’t accidentally pull on the tubing and topple the trap and the oil bubbler over. Do this up to 30 min at a time.
22. When you’re done, put the nasal cannula aside, and turn everything off in the following order: first the ozone generator, then unhook the silicone tubing from the ozone outport,
23. Close the valve of the tank and wait until the gauge goes down to zero.
24. Then turn the regulator to 0.
When ozonating oils the most important thing is to make sure that the ozone generator is protected from the oil.
When oil gets into an ozone generator, the generator can’t be saved.
In the above instructions I employ a double anti-oil protection to ensure the safety of the machine from oil.
- A check valve to prevent back-flow of oil.
- A trap prevents any oil from flowing back into the machine.
- Unhooking the tubing from the ozone generator whenever I turn the equipment off.
This is the equipment I used in the pictures above with links to the online shops:
- Oxygen source: oxygen tank
- Low flow or pediatric regulator
- Ozone generator: Promolife Mini
- Check valve
- Gas washing bottle which I used as a trap. You may need different sized silicone tubing, depending on which gas washing bottle you buy. Keep in mind: the necks of the gas washing bottles tend to break easier than if you buy the trap with the tubing already attached, see below.
- Olive oil (it does not have to be organic)
- Extra silicone tubing, I suggest 3 to 4 feet. You will need to exchange some of it with time, since it will get clogged with oil.
- Nasal cannula, the standard size.
- Additional luer locks
Instead of gas washing bottles, buy a trap with the tubing and the luer lock connectors already fitted onto it.
Same for the oil bubbler. I suggest the 500 ml size.
