When I was little and needed to clear my airways, my mom would create a steam tent. She took a big bowl, filled it with hot water and added some vapor rub. I would sit over the bowl with a towel draped over my head and inhale the steamy vapors. And it really worked. This is my natural, portable version of that old-fashioned steam tent. And you know what? It works!
The steamer is soooo easy. Add 2 drops each of peppermint, rosemary, and melaleuca essential oils to 1/2 cup of hot water. Relax and inhale the vapors. Try to take deep breathes for 5 minutes or longer.
Consider adding 2 drops of oregano essential oil. This is a powerful immune support. Be sure to cover your eyes as this can be a mighty powerful concoction. One of the things that I like about the Steamer is that is is useful throughout the day, even after the heat in the water wears off. You will find it to be potent 12 hours later and longer.
Sometimes, I’ll mix this concoction up in nifty Ball jars (I like the blue ones and you can pick them up here). When you are done, you can pop the lid on and re-use.
