One of the best ways to alleviate respiratory congestion during the cold and flu season is with a Thyme steam inhalation. As a full-spectrum antimicrobial, Thyme will not only improve your symptoms, but will also address the cause of your upper and lower respiratory congestion.
- 1-2 tsp. dried Thyme
- Large pot of water
Bring water to a boil, and remove from heat. Add Thyme to water and cover pot with lid. Allow to stand for up to 5 minutes. Remove lid from pot and place pot on heat resistant surface. Drape towel over both your head and the pot, and inhale steam deeply. Continue until there is no steam left.
Repeat several times a day until symptoms improve.
