How to Breathe Ozone Bubbled Through Olive Oil (with Pictures)

by | Last updated: Apr 13, 2021 | 53 comments

Breathing ozone bubbled through olive oil or Breathing Ozonated Olive Oil (BOO) is a form of ozone treatment for the respiratory tract and sinuses. 

Ozone gas is bubbled through olive oil, bonds to it and creates so-called ozonides or lipid oxidation products. 

it's assume that they retain the therapeutical properties of ozone gas without damaging the lungs.

Breathing ozone bubbled through olive oil is a simple and popular ozone treatment which can be easily set up at home. It's often used to treat a wide range of respiratory issues. 

Equipment you need to breathe ozone bubbled through olive oil

You will need the following parts:

  1. Oxygen source with a low flow regulator, here an industrial oxygen tank with an industrial, pediatric regulator.
  2. Ozone generator, here the Promolife Mini
  3. Accessories: Check valve, 2 gas washing bottles (One serves as a trap, the other as the oil bubbler. Alternatively you can get this trap and this oil bubbler), olive oil (it does not have to be organic), 3 to 4 ft of silicone tubing, nasal cannula, additional luer locks
  4. Breathing protection: here it's not needed.

The equipment I used in this guide employs a triple anti-oil protection to make sure no oil gets into the ozone generator (very important!)

How to breathe ozone bubbled through olive oil, step-by-step:


Suggested settings

Ozone concentration: 10 to 20 mcg/ml
Oxygen flow: 1/2 LPM
Duration: 10 to 40 min


Suggested settings

Ozone concentration:

10 to 20 mcg/ml

Oxygen flow:

1/2 LPM


10 to 40 min

  1. 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.

What is the triple anti-oil protection?

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.


  1. A check valve to prevent back-flow of oil.
  2. A trap prevents any oil from flowing back into the machine.
  3. Unhooking the tubing from the ozone generator whenever I turn the equipment off.

What is BOOO used for?

It's recommended to breathe ozone bubbled through olive oil when the following conditions are present: 

  • bronchitis
  • lung infections of any kind (bacterial, viral, fungal)
  • sinusitis, sinus congestion
  • throat ache
  • any infection or inflammation of the throat
  • laryngitis
  • influenza
  • cold
  • asthma
  • COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • brain fog
  • low energy
  • to stimulate the immune system

Risks and contraindications

The main risks come from doing the treatment after a complete saturation of the oil with ozone. Once this occurs, the oil does not bond ozone molecules any longer and one runs the risk of breathing pure ozone gas in. 

So, it's important to exchange the oil with fresh olive oil when it turns clear and gooey. 


  • transplanted organs, since ozone treatments can stimulate the immune system and trigger a rejection of the foreign organ
  • not well medicated hyperthyroidism
  • acute asthma attack

The Crazy Ozone Lady's take on BOOO

I love Breathing Ozonated Olive Oil. it's is a simple but effective ozone treatment.

Not only can it help with a wide range of respiratory issues, but some people also report a clearer head, improved mood, and better cognitive function after the treatment.

My Dad who was diagnosed with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and chronic bronchitis is also a fan of the treatments and has greatly benefited from them. During a period when he was working in China he would always return home with an acute respiratory infection.

Breathing ozonated olive oil was one of the main treatments which helped him overcome the illness.

  1. Laney

    Hello Paola!

    How often can BOO be done? Can it be done daily?

    I’d like to try it daily for myself and also for my pet who has a constant sinus infection – before we moved, we lived in a moldy environment for a couple of years and had a mildew scare in our new home (due to leaving windows open most of the time in high humidity by the beach).

    Interestingly, we both tested for the same pathogens/infections!

    Many thanks for your website – YOU ARE AMAZING!

  2. Helen

    Thanks so much for replying to my question. I used the designated oil bubbler that I ordered from Promolife. I didn't know that the oil volume can't be more than 2/3 of the container. Looks like I need the oil trap bottle. Oops, I was using the water bubbler container instead. I am curious, how effect does BOOO work with gum inflammation? What is the link for the oil trap that you have? BTW, your promo code with Promolife is no longer valid. I tried it last month.

    Can I use the oxygen concentrator for this purpose? I have a Devibiss. and tried to set it up with the low flow connector but with doesn't seem to work. Any suggestion as how to trouble shoot the issue.

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Helen,

      If you used the water bubbler as a trap, that's fine. You can continue doing that, you don't need a separate trap in that case.

      I don't know how effective BOOO is with gum inflammation, but I would rather do swishing with ozonated water.

      Yes, the Promolife code changed. It's TPOO now.

      Yes, you can use the oxygen concentrator for BOOO.

      I don't know why the low flow connector didn't work, I would need much more information for that. I suggest you book a session with me, 1/2 h should be enough:


  3. Helen

    How do I prevent the ozone from overflow? Do I need to a check valve to stop that? I saw an overflow in my tube and stopped it in time. What length is the tubing on the oil if I need to get a new one? Can the tube be salvaged if oil is trapped in the tube or it's gone?

    Is there a way to use my designated aluminum tank? I got the one from the store and it is made out of steel? The owner said he only swabbed the tank. Thanks, Paola!

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Helen,

      If the oil is overflowing, then you are likely using a water bubbler instead of an oil bubbler, see the difference here: , or you have poured in too much oil. The bubbler should be around 1/2 to 2/3 full.

      The length of the tubing doesn't matter much, but you should use a trap inbetween bubbler and ozone generator, like this one: . This prevents oil backflow.

      The tube can not be salvaged and should be disposed of and a new one should be used.

      The material of the tank doesn't really matter much. What matters is the valve. The valve can be either medical (CGA 870) or industrial (CGA 540).

      Swapping tanks is perfectly fine.

    Thanks for these great information I appreciate your efforts. I found lots of invaluble, great answers to my questions that can not be found easily on internet. I hope more and more people will get benefit from bubbled ozon treatment soon.

  5. Carla Case

    Thank you so much for this site and all of your amazing recommendations. My hubby had a terrible case of Folliculitis and after 5 applications of ozonated oil and one body bag treatment of just 30 mins. He is spot free and SO happy. Thank you, thank you

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Thank you for sharing!

      Great result!

  6. Travis Nino

    I see you mentioned oil suppositories as a use for the oil once it becomes concentrated. Could you elaborate please?
    Also thank you for all the information! Love love love this site. Would you ever consider doing a tutorial on 10 pass or IV’s? I’d love to learn more about it

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Travis,

      you can put the oil into pills, freeze it and use as suppositories. Or put the oil into molds and freeze them. Or buy the done product:

      Right now, am not planning any 10 pass or ozone IV tutorials, but let's see what happens …


  7. Kuysrorn

    I am interested with the power of ozone therapy and cancers treatment with Booo.

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Kuysrorn,

      let us know if you have any specific questions regarding that.


    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Kristin,
      I assume you want the gas washing bottle for the oil, not as a trap? If so, I would go for the 500 ml size.
      Thank you for the heads up about the link – I fixed it now with the one you found.

  8. David Custer

    My grandfather has lung cancer. We have been doing booo at 22 gamma for 40 minutes 3 times daily. He seems to be responding really well. Can I slowly increase the gamma, or length of each treatment?

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi David,
      I would not change anything.
      Keep at the same levels.


    • David Custer

      Hi Paola,
      Thank you! His blood oxygen has gone from 90-95% to 99%-100%!

    • Paola Dziwetzki


    • Paula Sauder

      Hi David, I'm happy to hear the booo helped your grandfather out, may I asked if he is still with you? I just got diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and debating on getting the boo. God Bless.

    • David Custer

      @Paula Sauder
      His cancer was not there in the last scan we had done.
      We did booo. But we also kept him in ketosis with his blood ketones between 7 – 8 mmol/L, and gave him silver, copper, zinc, iridium, platinum, and ruthenium suspended in water all with an atomic particle size of 0.1nm. (Please do not confuse these with metal or nanoparticles, these are 0.1nm-sized atomic particles otherwise known as Trace Minerals.)

  9. Lesley Bokol

    Hi Paola,
    Do you have any recommendations for length of treatment in a 5 year old (very sensitive) using ozone for nasal and ear insufflation? I know we should start low and slow but I'm not sure just how low and slow.

    Ears: 1-2 minutes?
    nose: 5-10 minutes?

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Lesley,

      sorry, but I do not feel comfortable giving advice how to treat kids with ozone …
      But ozone therapy has been successfully and safely used on human beings of all ages …


  10. Karl Wagner

    Thank you for the information you share! 🙂
    I'm recommend drinking ozonated water all the time when sick or feeling something bad is aproaching. Also nebulizing hydrogen peroxide and using it sublingual.

  11. Linda Saloman

    Hi Paula, thank you so much for your help. I'm now doing breathing ozonated olive oil , can you tell me how many times we can use the ozonated olive before we can change it into a fresh one? You mentioned that when the oil starting to get clear and gooey so its time to change the oil , can you give me an estimate when the olive oil becomes clear and gooey?
    Thank you!

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Linda,

      if you do BOOO every day for at least 30 minutes, it will probably take anything between 3 to 5 weeks …


  12. stec

    Heloo! you mentioned in a youtube comment where someone complains about frothing oil , that the reason is that he has a stone instead of a glass. can you develop on that ? and how is it possible to fix it ?

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi stec,

      The stone is used only when ozonating water, not oils, otherwise the frothing occurs and the stone clogs up quickly.

      The fix is to buy an oil bubbler or gas washing bottle which has bigger holes and is designed for ozonating oils, like this one:

      Or look for “gas washing bottles” on amazon or Ebay.


    • stecder

      Thank you so much for your answer, also i have a question and a very important story about ozone i never rade or saw in any video.
      I had ibs and ofcourse after trying every conventional drug it got much worse to the point of shitting 10times a day for real. To work, i needed not to eat 5hours in advance.
      I did ozonated water colonix for just 15min only ounce( not the 2Liter but ongoing water non stop)…
      And here comes the important part , i couldn t stand in the sun at all , i almost burn and my face very hot even if it s snowing since teenager. After the colonix one time, the next day i woke up in the morning, stood in the sun without burning couldn t believe it.
      I did not even ask or tell the naturopath about this skin problem because dermatologists told me long before *you just have allergy to the sun* and tought i will never cure and have to live with it. I came back , she explained that naturapth believe skin problem originate in intestines.
      But i did a mistake, i didn t take the supplements she gave to eat the debris so i got like something clogged in the heart ,got much better after taking the supplements.
      My question is , when we do an ozonated water colonix for 30 min, are the supplements enough ? Or we need to take heparin too like the hyperbaric ozone?
      I got the list of supplement from drRObertrowen. Is the ozonated water colonix that potent that we need heparin or supplements are enough?
      Thank you for answer in advance and hope i gave you a good new story about this sun allergy

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi stecder,

      heparin is an anti-coagulant which prevents blood from clotting when it is removed outside of the body.

      Anti-coagulants are only used during intravenous ozone administration, never during non-invasive ones. Colonics have nothing to do with heparin.

      I'm glad to hear that the ozone helped you with the sun problem, that's quite something!


  13. Franco Filice

    Hi Paola,

    Could I use an oxygen concentrator with about 90% O2 output vs. an O2 tank?
    What should be the O2 concentration to the ozone generator?


    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Franco,

      as long as the oxygen concentrator puts the 90% out at 2 LPM or lower, then yes.

      The required oxygen concentration for non-invasive ozone treatments should be at least 90%.

      But you need an additional low flow regulator, like this thing:


    • Franco Filice


      Thanks for your reply.

      I do not see a diffuser immersed in the oil with your setup, any reason why?

      A diffuser is used for ozonating water, why the difference in setups?

      I am assuming that the ozone bubbles while immersed the oil, correct?

      How long does it take for the oil to be ozonated and what are the amounts of oil and times required before I can start breathing the ozonated oil gas?

      How can we measure the ozonation concentration?


    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Franco,

      if with diffuser you mean a diffuser stone, no, you don't need that. A diffuser stone may be actually contraindicated since it will lead to clogging.

      The difference between oil and water setup is that oil is much more viscous than water. Hence you don't need a stone.

      To measure ozone concentration you need an ozone analyzer.

      You don't need to wait at all before you start breathing the ozonides. The minute you see bubbles in the oil you can put on your nasal cannula or mask.


  14. chris willis

    Good day,
    I have been bubbling H2O and Extra Virgin Olive oil for topical application.
    As well as using in ears with a fan breezing away the direct Ozone.

    Is breathing the airborne Ozone during any of these operations Dangerous?

    I have fans on and window open in a 1400sq/ft area as precaution yet the Ozone
    is still very prevalent when you come into the room from outside etc.

    Thank you for all your information and consideration.

    Be Blessed.

    • Britt-Marie

      I would really like to know this as well.

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Chris and Britt-Marie,

      yes, you need to protect yourself from the excess ozone with all ozone treatments that do not involve bubbling ozone through oil.

      So you should not breathe the ozone that escapes when bubbling it through water or when doing ear or any other insufflations .

      An anti-ozone breathing protection should be part of every ozone setup.

      Here, I give some ideas on how to do this:


  15. Ziev

    Hi Paola,

    Just discovered your website and you are amazing! Your articles in particular are incredibly informative, well researched and balanced. Thank you.

    Just wanted to ask. I only have an generator that uses air as feed gas. This means its producing nitrogen as well. Would it still be safe to inhale ozone from this machine if bubbled through Oil?

    And sub-question, if the machine is 400mg/h is it too strong to breath at all?

    I wouldn't be attaching any tubing directly to my nostrils, was thinking to just place my head over the bucket.

    Thanks again!

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Ziev,

      thank you for reading my blog, but you may not like what I'm about to say.

      I would not use an air-fed machine to do ozone oil breathing or any other ozone treatments.

      I don't think it's exceedingly dangerous what you're proposing, but it's generally accepted to only use oxygen run ozone generators for ozone treatments.


    • Ziev Shani

      Hi Paola,

      Thank you very much. Since my last post I have ordered an Ozone machine and Oxygen concentrator.

      I didn't know about the difference before coming onto your blog. Will be using Ozone a lot more effectively and safely from now.


    • Paola Dziwetzki

      HI Ziev,

      I'm glad you found my information helpful!


  16. Anna-Carin Rahm

    Thanks a million!
    I am so grateful that you share your knowledge.

  17. Anna-Carin Rahm

    Thank you so much for your answer.
    I just now come to think of the oil, does it have to be olive oil?
    I have used organic canola oil…

    Kind regards

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Anna-Carin,

      yes, olive oil is best.

      I do not recommend canola oil. It does not bond with ozone as well as olive oil.


  18. Anna-Carin Rahm

    Hi Paola,

    If the lungs have parasites, does breathing ozone help?
    And/or if they have bacteria such as Chlamydia pneumoniae?

    Your blog/homepage is amazing.

    Kind regards

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Anna-Carin,

      thank you for reading my blog!

      Yes, I believe that breathing ozone bubbled through olive oil could help with parasitic, or bacterial, or viral infections in the lungs if done sufficiently long and often enough.


  19. Maria rivero

    can you re-use the oil, or use it for another purpose?

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Maria,

      yes, you can absolutely reuse the oil to apply on your skin or do oil suppositories with it. Some people ingest it, but I find the taste revolting.


  20. george allibone

    Dear Paola

    What is an effective but safe ozone concentration to inhale when using the

    oil bubbler–is 10-20 gamma the correct range or can one go a little higher—do

    not want to irritate my lungs

    Thanks for your all your help

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi George,

      I would stay in the 10 to 20 mcg/ml range.

  22. george allibone


    I do not unless I have to use O2 cylinders in the home—I would prefer to buy a reliable

    good oxygen generator

    Do these machines when purchased supply appropriate tubing for hook-up

    Also, Is there a manual that will help with construction of the system

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi George,

      the problem with oxygen concentrators right now is that they appear to be all sold out on all online platforms …

      I did send you one option of a refurbished Invacare machine, please check your email.

      I don't know if that particular company I sent you the link to supplies the machine with tubing, but I suggest to buy extra tubing anyway, I also included a link to it in the email.

      There are lots of videos on Promolife's Youtube channel.

      Or you can hire me to show you live via Skype how to hook everything up!
