Healing Through Steam Inhalation
Steam inhalation therapy is helpful for relieving the congestion of bronchitis, the common cold, and a variety of other respiratory and sinus conditions.
Steam inhalation opens up congested sinuses and lung passages, allowing you to discharge mucus, breathe more easily, and heal faster.
To make the steam, you may use water only, or you may add dried or fresh herbs or herbal oils to enhance the effects of the treatment.
