The lukewarm oil will increase the temperature to more than 2 to 3 in the localized area, by which vasodilatation will happen and the blood circulation will increase and necessary oxygen and nutrition materials are supplied and the free radicals which are responsible for the disease will be removed and helps to remove the congestion of the lungs and reduces the breathlessness.
