For a relaxing steamer when you're starting to feel a bit under the weather, try this using:
6 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
6 cups of water
Bring the water and oil to a near boil. Using a towel, make a tent over the water and steam your head for 5 minutes. I would recommend turning the burner off and putting the pot on a trivet away from the stove starting to steam.
The eucalyptus steam will help ease symptoms of bronchitis, colds, coughing, fever, flu and sinusitis.
Fit's Tip: If the steam is too hot on your face, use a bigger towel and move further away. You can get the oil at most health stores as well as online. Buy it here for $11.95.
