When a dreaded cold appears, you want nothing more than to be able to breath easy! With a blocked sinus system and a runny nose, it can really bring you down. During the winter’s cold and flu season, why not try a natural steaming herbs recipe for flu and cold symptoms instead of going for over-the-counter cold medications? Bowl, shower or diffuser Jill and Stacy over at theprairiehomestead.com has a method that will work for you!┬áHerbal steam treatments can help to clear respiratory and sinus congestion due to a cold or flu.

Steam inhalation is also used as a remedy for headaches, asthma, bronchitis and infections. Steam treatment alone is an effective method to fight respiratory congestion, but herbs can add additional therapeutic benefits. Herbs are also fragrant, and help promote a sense of calm and well-being. Make sure you stay warm, rested and hydrated too!

*** Note: Some people, such as asthmatics, may be sensitive to the steam and vapors of some essential oils, so take a cautious approach at first.
