Herbal Sinus Steam: Cleanse, Refresh, Decongest
I love to use herbal steams when I am congested to help bring relief & open up my airways. I also like to use this blend to cleanse, refresh, & add moisture to the air when there is excessive dryness.
Bring 4-6 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 Tbsp. of the herbal mixture.
Cover your head with a towel and position your face over the pot, using the towel as a tent to hold the steam in.
With your eyes closed and face 5-10 inches away from the hot water, breathe in the herbal goodness for 5-10 minutes at a time.
The combination of hot steam plus the evaporating volatile oils from the herbs makes it very difficult for pathogens to survive and stimulates an immune response in the mucous membranes.
