BREATHING OZONATED OLIVE OIL

by | Aug 17, 2019 | 43 comments

WHAT IS BREATHING OZONATED OLIVE OIL?

Breathing ozonated olive oil means breathing ozone which has been bubbled through olive oil. When ozone is bubbled through oil it creates ozonides or LOPs, lipid oxidation products. Those molecules retain the therapeutic properties of ozone without damaging the lungs. Breathing ozonated olive oil, or BOOO, can help with a wide range of respiratory issues like asthma, COPD, bronchitis, or congested sinuses.

WHAT EQUIPMENT YOU NEED

You need:

  1. Oxygen source and low flow regulator
  2. Ozone generator
  3. Trap
  4. Oil Bubbler with olive oil
  5. Nasal cannula, connector, silicone tubing
  6. Extras: box with bubble wrap, or stands
ozonated oil breathing

One of many possible home ozone set-ups for performing Breathing Ozonated Olive Oil. Here I use the Promolife Mini ozone generator and gas washing bottles from amazon.

1. Oxygen source:

Use either an oxygen tank or an oxygen concentrator which produces oxygen of at least 90% purity. Whatever oxygen source you choose, make sure your ozone generator is able to produce concentrations of around 10 mcg/ml at an oxygen flow of 1/2 LPM.

2. Ozone generator: 

It should be an oxygen fed generator which can produce ozone concentrations of around 10 to 20 mcg/ml at an oxygen flow of 1/2 LPM. Any of the recommended generators on this page can be used.

A trap is made of glass, it has an inlet which is connected to a stem, and an outlet. It protects the ozone generator from back-flowing oil. 

An oil bubbler is another gas washing bottle. The oil bubbler is where you pour olive oil in to ozonate it.

When you connect trap and oil bubbler make sure that you connect the ozone outlet of the trap with the inlet of the oil bubbler.

3. Trap

A trap serves to prevent oil from entering the ozone generator. Liquids which are ozonated can flow back into the generator and damage it. Once oil gets into the machine it can’t be salvaged. So it’s very important to prevent oil back-flow. In the photo above I use a cheap gas washing bottle which is originally intended as laboratory equipment. They are perfect for traps and oil bubblers. You can buy them in various forms and sizes on amazon or ebay. The drawback is that different gas washing bottles call for different silicone tubing. So you may have to try several tubings out first, before you find one which fits. The solution is to buy a trap from Promolife or SimplyO3. They come with already attached silicone tubing and connectors. 

4. Oil bubbler with olive oil

You can use a second gas washing bottle as an oil bubbler, or you can get one here or here. The bubbler is where ozonides or LOPs, Lipid Oxidation Products, are produced. Those are molecules which are generated when ozone is run through oil. They retain all the therapeutic properties of ozone but are not damaging to the lungs. After a while the oil can get saturated with ozone at which point it’s important to exchange it for a fresh batch, otherwise you’re running the risk of breathing raw ozone instead of ozonides. The more oil is poured into the bubbler, the longer it lasts and the less often it needs to be substituted with new one.

There is some discussion about what type of olive oil to use, whether it should be organic or if lower quality oils can be used as well. The Russian ozone pioneers I visited in Russia were adamant about using refined oils only. They claim that refined oils render better results than unrefined ones. Since during BOO the oil is not ingested nor does it enter the human body in any significant amounts, I personally do not see the importance of using unrefined or organic oils, and tend to go along with the Russian suggestions. Since it is very difficult to find refined olive oil anyway, this discussion is mostly theoretical. In my opinion any olive oil will do the job. 

The cannula is strapped around the ears and delivers the ozonated oil straight into your nostrils.

The connector attaches the cannula to the hose which leads from the oil bubbler.

You will need extra silicone tubing to connect everything. Silicone tubing can be easily cut with a pair of scissors.

There are many different ways to connect the nasal cannula with the silicone tubing which leads from the oil bubbler. The above connector is only one of many possible solutions.

You will also need a bunch of luer locks. These come in only one size. It’s always a good idea to have a bunch of them handy when setting up your own home ozone equipment.

5. Cannula, connector, silicone tubing

You need either a nasal cannula or a mask. Both Promolife and SimplyO3 carry them. The best type of cannula is one made entirely out of silicone, like this one. It’s more expensive, but ideal for ozone applications. In order to connect the cannula with the silicone tubing (which leads from the oil bubbler), you will need a special connector or a pair of luer locks. Extra silicone tubing may be necessary to connect the two gas washing bottles with each other. Depending on the circumference of the inlets and outlets of the bottles, different sized tubing may be required. 

An empty plastic container.

Bubble wrap.

One of many possibilities to make sure that the trap and bubbler don’t break or that the oil is spilled: a plastic box with bubble wrap.

6. Extras: empty box with bubble wrap

I highly recommend buying a container and bubble wrap and placing the glass trap and bubbler inside to prevent breakage or spillage. This bubbler already comes with a stand. 

HOW TO PERFORM BREATHING OZONATED OLIVE OIL

1. Set everything up: plug the ozone generator into the socket and connect your oxygen source (either oxygen tank or oxygen concentrator) with the ozone generator. Then connect the inlet of the trap (the part which is connected to the stem) with the ozone outlet of the ozone generator. Connect the outlet of the trap with the inlet of the oil bubbler. Connect the outlet of the oil bubbler with the nasal cannula. Pour olive oil into the oil bubbler. The more oil you pour in, the less often will you have to exchange it. I suggest to fill the bubbler around 2/3 full.

2. Turn on the oxygen source. If it’s a tank: open the valve of the tank and the regulator at 1/2 LPM. If it’s an oxygen concentrator: let the machine warm up for a few minutes, then adjust the external regulator to 1/2 LPM. The moment you turn on the oxygen, you should start seeing bubbles in the oil bubbler.

3. If you’re using an ozone generator with a dial knob, set the ozone concentration relatively low at around 10 mcg/ml. If you’re using a non-adjustable ozone generator, set the oxygen flow so that the resulting ozone concentration does not exceed 20 mcg/ml.

3. Put the cannula on.

4. You can read a book, work on your laptop, or take a nap during that time.

5. After you’re done turn off the ozone generator and the oxygen. After you close the oxygen source the oil bubbler will stop producing bubbles. You can reuse the oil and the cannula.

RISKS AND HOW TO AVOID THEM

Risk: The oil becomes saturated with ozone over time and does not produce ozonides anymore. You end up breathing raw ozone instead of ozonides.

How to avoid it: Change the oil frequently, especially if you start experiencing harshness or irritation after the procedure.

Use enough oil. The more oil you use, the more distance do the ozone bubbles have to travel through the oil and the less raw ozone is left over. I suggest to fill the bubbler a good 2/3 full. Long shaped bubblers may be preferable to shorter and thicker ones.

    I bought two gas glasses off ebay
    can I use one for the trap and one for the oil?
    they are the same .
    you say make sure you use the outlet of the trap to the inlet of the humidifier
    they both are the same that i have , so confused on that.

      Hi Theresa,
      “can I use one for the trap and one for the oil?” – Yes.

      “you say make sure you use the outlet of the trap to the inlet of the humidifier
      they both are the same that i have” – Yes, both have an inlet and both have an outlet. So just make sure that the sequence how you connet ig goes [ozone generator]-[inlet of trap]-[outlet of trap]-[inlet of humidifier]-[outlet of humidifier]-[oxygen mask]. Look under the “Important!!” drawing again, it’s all there!
      Hope this helps…

      My oil is not bubbling , maybe it not enough ozone going through
      Hoping it will heal some yeast in my lung
      The silicone tubing is pretty small but I can smell the ozone
      Thank you …

    • paola d

      Hi Theresa,
      if the oil is not bubbling, that means that your bubbler is most likely hooked up the wrong way. Make sure that the output line out of the generator goes into the right inlet on the bubbler, and not the outlet. And make sure you are using a trap between ozone generator and bubbler, otherwise you are running the risk of getting oil into your machine.

  2. Richard

    May I ask what purpose is served by the Trap?

    Reply
    • paola d

      The purpose of the trap is to protect the machine from liquids which tend to flow back through the tubing with continuous ozone applications.

  3. Gary

    I assume that it would be ideal to have the trap container at a higher elevation than the oil container to help miminize possible back flow into the ozone generator. Please comment.

    Also what percentage of oil should the oil container be?

    Should the oil be changed after every application?

    If not after every application, what are the change factor and their order of significance? (Such as ozone oil breathing time, number of day intervals between ozonated oil breathing treatment, non use storage of oil filled container,etc.)

      “I assume that it would be ideal to have the trap container at a higher elevation than the oil container to help miminize possible back flow into the ozone generator.” – Yes, that would be an additional safety precaution. Good idea.

      “Also what percentage of oil should the oil container be?” – 1/3 to 1/2 full. Most important is that the outlet of the oil container is submerged in oil.

      “Should the oil be changed after every application?” – No need. Only once it is saturated with ozone and does not produce anymore ozonides. Once your lungs start to feel raw after the procedure, it is time to change the oil. This can take weeks or months, depending how often and how long you do it.

      “If not after every application, what are the change factor and their order of significance? (Such as ozone oil breathing time, number of day intervals between ozonated oil breathing treatment, non use storage of oil filled container,etc.)” – number of day intervals is not significant, non use is also not significant. What counts is the combined breathing time, type of oil, and ozone concentration. The higher the ozone concentration used, the faster the ozone will get saturated. Some oils take longer to reach saturation than others. You will have to experiment with those. But the most important factor is the combined usage time.

    • paola d

      With outlet of oil container I mean the part that lets ozone out into the oil container. Basically that part of the container which hangs down vertically inside and through which ozone flows in.

    Hello 🙂
    I have the ext50 with a pediatric regulator from longevity resource, what setting do would I use for this procedure? 1/4, 1/8, 1/32, etc.?
    Also, how long do you breath it for?
    Thanks for the great details you provide!

    • paola d

      Hi,
      set the oxygen at 1/2 LPM.
      With “breathing in” I hope you mean bubbled through olive oil?
      If so, start with 10 min and increase slowly. Always make sure, there is enough olive oil in the bubbler.

  5. Susana

    sorry, I forgot to ask one other question regarding the link you provide to the jars and lids. You mention that the jars should be glass, do those lids fit on mason jar or other types of glass jars? Thank you Paola!
    btw, if you ever want to come back to visit the US, you can stay with me in Washington. lol

      Hi Susana,
      the links lead to bottles already designed for bubbling oil, same with the low budget gas washing bottle.
      Those bottles / bubblers require a special lid which will not fit onto a mason jar, I am afraid.
      Some people find DIY solutions with silicone tape from Home Depot. So you can do without a lid completely, just use the tape instead …
      Thank you for the invite! Is it Washington state or D.C. 😀 ?

  6. susana

    Hello!
    sorry, I’m confused about the bottle types (plastic vs glass).
    yes, breathing through bubbled oil. Do you agree that previously treated/ozoned oil is better for breathing through bubbler or is untreated oil purchased from a store just as good?
    Washington State 🙂

    Reply
    • paola d

      You should only use untreated, unozonated oil for the “ozonated oil breathing”.
      Once the oil is fully saturated with ozone, it cannot and should not be used for breathing.
      Best is definitely glass.

      Washington State? – I’m coming! 😀 !!

    Is the oil suppose to rise through the canal and reach the nose?
    We just started and stopped it because the oil was coming up.
    Please advise.
    Thank you.

      “Is the oil suppose to rise through the canal and reach the nose?” – Definitely not! The oil is supposed to stay put in the oil bubbler. Not sure what went wrong … did you pour too much oil into the bubbler and it came out of the output?

    • Gabby

      Im guessing too much oils. So is the oil suppose to be below the bulb? The bulb was totally saturated when I first did it.
      What level would you suggest?
      Thank you.

    • paola d

      Hi Gabby,
      the oil is supposed to cover the bulb of the bubbler, so that you see bubbles in the oil when oxygen flows.
      I would suggest to pour enough oil to reach around 1/3 of the bubbler.

  8. linda

    I have mild asthma. The first time is breathed the ozonated oil for 15 min., I began to experience a little bronchial irritation and stopped the process. I coughed for about 30 min. afterward. Is this something to be concerned about?

    Reply
    • paola d

      This is likely an indication that you have accidentally breathed in some raw ozone.
      Your oxygen flow might be too high or the ozone concentration too high as well or you didn’t use enough oil.
      It likely didn’t do any lasting damage, but you should avoid using wrong settings or too little oil.

  9. kim lundy

    What are the different oils you can use to breathe ozone thru?

    Reply
    • paola d

      Hi Kim!
      You can use most vegetable oils which are liquid at room temperature.
      The most popular is olive oil.
      The Russians stress the importance of using refined oils.
      Hope this helps!

  10. Kellie Berns

    If my my oil was just above the bubbler itself is that safe? I am using a 500ml promolife beaker and i filled it to 300ml which covered the bubbler in oil but not much higher. I did 4 treatments of 5-10 minutes each at 20 mcg and now i have a severe upper respiratory infection. I have had a low grade repiratory infection for many months and i either bothered it with the breathing treatments or im having a herx reaction. Its hard to tell…

      Hi Kellie,
      sounds like a Herx reaction.
      How are you doing now?

  11. Elizabeth Maupin

    I have the PromoLife bubbler. I must have waited too long to change the oil, because the oil has begun to congeal inside the bubbler bulb, even though it still bubbles. Is there an efficient way to clean the clumps of ozonated oil from the bulb? (I could get a bit with a pipe cleaner down the tube, but it will not clean the entire bulb.)

    Reply
    • paola d

      Hi Elizabeth,

      some people use acetone or alcohol to dissolve the oil.

      A warm bath with soap should do it, too.

    Hi Paola,
    I am just about to try inhaling ozone and watched a video with Dr Rowan where he said he uses pine and eucalyptus oil. Do you know anything about this and do you think it’s safe to add some eucalyptus oil to the olive oil?
    Thanks!

    Hi Paola
    You are so fantastic in your informations and your courage to confront the big ones. I’m gratefull.

    Now to the oil bubbeling. I find it very impotant at the end of inhalation to stop the whole thing, that one stops first the oxygenbottle and after the oxygen regulator to prevent for 100% that no oxygen reaches the oil. That would be very dangerous (fire or explosions).
    Is that true?
    Grüsse aus den Schweizer Bergen 🙂

      Hi Swisstoph,

      no, it’s not true. Olive oil does not combust spontaneously when in contact with oxygen. Otherwise no one could use it for salad dressing ;-).

      Hi Ed Von,

      the safety mask prevents me from accidentally breathing in raw ozone.
      I find it is needed very much. If you do VI or EI for longer than a few minutes, you realize that there is lot of ozone around. A mask prevents me from inhaling it. Once I tried it, I never wanted to miss it.

    Hello Paola,

    It appears that there is nothing special about the oil bubbler stem.
    Would it not be viable to use a water bubbler equipment, remove the water bubbler stem and just put the silicone tube from the ozone outlet into the oil?

    Can the saturated oil not be used internally as rizols, and can castor oil also be used for sinus insufflations?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Vital

      Hi Vital,
      you can totally use the water bubbler the way you described.
      Yes, rizols are ozonated oil, you can use them internally.
      Yes, you can also use castor oil.

      Best,
