Add Eucalyptus Oil & Steam for sinus pressure relief

Eucalyptus oil has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties along with having a refreshing effect on the skin which is why CALM created Rosemary Eucalyptus Facial Toner. But when you have a bad cold, eucalyptus oil can help clear clogged nasal passages and reduce sinus pressure. Eucalyptus steam is stimulating and will energize you as you relieve your sinus pressure.

CALM DIY Beauty Recipes
For Sinus Pressure Relief Eucalyptus Steam

Step 1

Boil 4 cups of distilled water in a pot. Distilled water is best because there are no chemicals in the water. Transfer the hot water to a large glass bowl, and allow it to cool slightly and Place the bowl on a table where you will easily be able to sit in front of it and hold your face over it.

Step 2

Add 3/4 drops of Eucalyptus oil to Steaming water. Sit in front of the bowl of steaming water, and drape a towel over your head. Lean your face over the bowl, and pull the towel down so it forms a tent over your head and the bowl, trapping the steam. Inhale the vapors from the bowl of steaming eucalyptus water. Breathe deeply, and breathe in through your nose as much as possible. Every two minutes, blow your nose to remove the loosened mucus and make inhalation easier

Step 3

Continue breathing in the vapors for at least 20 minutes or until the water has cooled and there is no more steam. Be sure to continue to blow your nose, expelling the excess secretions. The steam bath can be repeated daily or as often as needed.
