Eucalyptus Oil rubbed on the feet daily can help keep the airway more open. My Niece visited from out of town and she has Asthma. She put the oil on her feet while here and said it seemed to reduce the tightness in her chest. Make sure you get 100% theraputic grade oil, or it may contain contaminants that you wouldn't want to put on your body.
My husband says inhaling the steam from freshly brewed coffee can open his airway when he is in the midst of a mild asthma attack.
