Gum Leaves ! (A great decongestive)
( A great De congestive )
If you have the flu and feel all stuffed up !
This could be very helpful for helping to clear up all the congestion. Does every one remember years ago when we had colds and our mum would put Vick's in a bowl with boiling water and we put our heads over the bowl with a towel over our heads to keep the steam and heat locked in and took deep breathes to help clear all the mucus lodged in our head,nose and chest . Well this is a really healthy alternative as I wouldn't use Vick's as it's petroleum based . Use gum leaves (full of eucalyptus oil ) they are free grab a big handful pour boiling water over them in pot on stove and stand over it and breath in the steam and vapors it really unblocks and clears all the sinuses. You may need to put the hot plate on to get it boiling to create more steam !I did it the other day and it really cleared my nasal passages and gave myself a facial cleanse at the same time ! really worth trying !
