Unless you are currently experiencing the very hot summer in Australia right now, chances are you are deep in the throes of winter. If you are like me, the wintery blues have brought on some serious sniffles and coughing. My recent mountain travels ended with a bit of a cold and cough, and I was in need of natural relief. Tea tree oil is a power antiviral, and combined with the potency of eucalyptus oil, will help with decongesting the lungs and sinuses.
4 cups boiling water
5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
5 dops tea tree essential oil
*you can use peppermint oil instead of eucalyptus or in addition to it.
Boil the water in a teakettle. As soon as it comes to a boil, pour into a large bowl, add in the essential oils, and cover with a towel. When you are ready, lift the towel and place your face so that your nose and mouth are only a few inches away from the water. Cover your head with the towel, and take 10 long deep breaths.
