Lotuschef on Steam Inhalation

Steam inhalation with essential oil

When steam and essential oils are combined they form a very potent way to help treat some ailments, especially those of the upper respiratory tract, nose and sinuses. This type of treatment should not be used by anybody suffering from asthma.

This type of treatment can be effective when you are suffering from a cold, wheezing chest, sinus discomfort etc. – but remember if you have a medical problem, please contact your licensed medical practitioner.
We have listed some conditions below, with corresponding essential oils that may be of help. You could use a single oil, or you can combine oils – it all depends on personal preference, and what works for your particular problem.

Breathing difficulties





Instructions to do steam inhalation

Pour hot water into a bowl and 3 drops of the essential oil that you have selected, place your head about 12 inches (30 cm) above the bowl and cover your head with a towel in such a way that the sides are totally closed and you in actual fact form a tent over the bowl.
Keep your eyes shut and breathe deeply through your nose for 1 to 2 minutes.
If you feel that the treatment is getting too much for you, raise the towel so that fresh air is brought into the area and breathe through your mouth a couple of times and then resume the treatment. Should you at any time feel uncomfortable discontinue the treatment.
When using this treatment with children or elderly people make sure that they do not burn themselves by getting too close to the bowl, or that the steaming water is upset and burns result.

LC: Yes! I also did the taisui packages for you & TP. Next year rat clashes with horse. Also doing ancestors for TP & you

TP coughing alot. He has a catheter on his left lungs that we have to drain every week. Coughing started as the new nurse ask us not to drain so often. I dont think she knows what she is talking about. I wonder what kind of drink can help clear his lungs a bit?

LC: Warmth. If he is not feverish. Apply ointment like Vicks or do inhalation.
That is put a spoon of Vicks into cup or small bowl. Pour hot water n surround bowl or cup with thick towel leaving a small hole to inhale the warm steam of Vicks vapors. Then exhale away from the vapors. Repeat inhaling deeply.
Don’t panic. Inhalation is very effective n the warmth is soothing too. Relax his muscles n mind.

I in Medan this week. Saturday is fire puja event there. Will do whatever I can for him. :)

DN: Thank u, Medan in India or in Italy?

Thats a fabulous idea! I will get vicks

LC: Indonesia la blur queen!

Warm licorice root water also good. But take sips just to let it smoothen the lining of throat to prevent dry n itchy cough.

Dear all,
Steam Inhalation with Vaporizers helps to clear Blocked Noses resulting from Common Cold.
Licorice Roots boiled in water with a pinch of salt added, drank warm can actually helps dry & itchy cough, as it forms a smooth lining along the throat, “moisturizing the throat’s wall or lining.
So you can store the boiled Licorice Root liquid in a Thermoflask to keep it hot or warm.
This is not effective when drank cool.
[I have actually written an article about the Uses of Licorice Roots.]
