Also, add 10-15 drops of eucalyptus oil in a pot of boiling water (medium sized pan/pot). Then turn off the heat or stove, place a towel over your head. Make a tent-like covering your head and face over the hot water and breathe in the steam for 15-20 minutes. Be careful as the water and steam is hot. You can do this as often as needed.
