Steam inhalation is one of the common and oldest way to cure cough and cold. It is also good way to clear sinuses. For this you will need a few drops of eucalyptus oil and a vessel with hot water.
Take boiling hot water in a vessel and add 5 to 6 drops of eucalytus oil to it. You can add more drops if you want it more intense. Stir well so that it mixes well with water. Inhale the eucalytus vapors coming from the hot water by covering a blanket over your head. Replace with hot boiling water when it becomes warm and repeat it for 3 to 4 times. It is a great remedy for blocked nose, bad cold and/or cough. Repeat this procedure every night before going to bed until you feel better. You can also apply some eucalyptus oil on your forehead, neck and chest area to get a good night’s sleep.
