All natural relief from colds, flu, sinus infection, & congested nose. A super quick & easy steam to help alleviate symptoms.
What you’ll need:
- A large heat proof bowl
- Boiled water
- Peppermint / Peppermint oil / peppermint tea bag
Optional add ins:
- Camphor oil
- Eucalyptus / Eucalyptus oil
*Please* be sure, your bowl is safe for boiled water, if it’s not then only heat the water until it’s steaming.
Put about 3 drops of each oil in the bottom of the bowl, pour in the steaming water, mix, then with a towel over your head to create a ‘tent’, hover over the bowl inhaling the steam. (be sure the steam isn’t so hot that it may burn your face)
I like to keep my eyes closed because the camphor and peppermint can make them water.
Remember, my advice is not intended to replace that of your medical practitioner, always seek professional medical advice if you are very ill.
