Over the weekend I woke up in the morning miserable with a head cold. I was really dreading going to sleep Sunday night because I knew Monday morning I'd wake up completely stuffed up. I tried this remedy and I woke up this morning with a clear nose. My throat is still a bit scratchy and I have a cough but at least this pressure has left my sinus. First I made a concoction of 7 drops Eucalyptus essential oil, and 12 drops sweet almond oil (can use any other carrier oil, even olive) I massaged this into my chest and on my neck up to my chin/jaw line about 30 minutes before I was going to bed. Then I soaked a wash cloth with really hot water and layed it over my mouth and nose, folded in half, and took really heavy breaths. I re-heated the cloth approx 4 times. Breathing in deeply until the cloth was cool to the touch.
