Risks and how to avoid them
Ozonated Oil Breathing is performed when ozone is first bubbled through olive oil (usually olive oil is used, but it can be also a variety of other oils) and then inhaled. The person avoids breathing in the harsh raw ozone and instead breathes in soothing ozonides. Ozonides are created when ozone bonds to oil. Ozonides retain all the therapeutic properties of ozone without irritating the lungs. This protocol is often used for all sorts of respiratory issues from sinus congestion, asthma, to bronchitis.
In order to be able to do ozonated oil breathing (or “breathing ozone bubbled through olive oil”) you need:
oxygen + ozone generator + trap + oil bubbler + oxygen mask
Oxygen source: Either an oxygen tank or an oxygen concentrator can be used. Both the oxygen concentrator and oxygen tank have to allow for oxygen flows between 1/8 LPM and 1/2 LPM.
Oxygen concentrator: There are several possibilities. One can either use a low flow oxygen concentrator which allows for oxygen flows of 1/8 LPM to 1/2 LPM, which is enough to ozonate oil, or one can use a regular oxygen concentrator (which usually allows for oxygen flows of 1/2 to 5 LPM) and attach an external low flow regulator to bring the flow down to 1/4 to 1/8 LPM and so to be able to achieve higher ozone concentrations.
Ozone generator: It should be a generator which uses ozone resistant materials in the air chamber, can be fed oxygen from an oxygen concentrator or an oxygen tank, and can reliably produce stable ozone concentrations at given oxygen flows.
Accessories: 1) trap or check valve. A trap is preferable, which is usually an empty humidifier. 2) Oil bubbler: this is a glass container which allows for ozone to be infused through oil. It should not have a bubbling stone since the oil would clog its pores. 3) Oxygen mask.
For an overview of the different connectors and tubing, please go to How to connect ozone equipment.
Take some tubing and connect the oxygen output (from either tank or concentrator) with the oxygen inlet on the ozone generator. Take a separate silicone tubing and attach one end to the ozone generator’s “ozone out” outlet, the other end to the trap inlet (be careful to get that right! Be sure to connect the ozone output hose with the inlet of the trap, not the outlet, as explained here). Take a new shorter piece of silicone tubing and attach one end to the outlet of the trap and the other end to the inlet of the oil bubbler. Pour the desired amount of oil into the oil bubbler (1/3 to 1/2 full). Take yet another piece of silicone tubing and connect the output of the oil bubbler with the oxygen mask.
Turn the oxygen source on and set it at a flow of for example 1/4 LPM. Turn on the ozone generator and set it at the desired ozone concentration.
Put the oxygen mask on. Breathe normally during the application.

You know how this goes: you sign up once, and then you keep getting emails on a daily basis. No matter how much you liked the idea of a newsletter in the beginning, eventually it always turns into spam. Ugh!
See, this will never happen here. I write waaay too slow to create spam. Just check out my blog. Even if I wanted to, I'm unable.
