Sharrie's 'My heads all stopped up' remedy
Apothecary jar (or any wide mouth jar)
4 - 6 cotton balls
Organic Essential Oils: Peppermint, Lavender, and Lemon
In a wide mouth, clean jar place about 4-6 cotton balls. Drop equal amounts of the organic essential oils (usually 5-10 drops is good, depending on jar size): peppermint, lavender, & lemon. Close your eyes and inhale from the jar (start with jar several inches away at first until you find your tolerance level. It can be a bit strong). Exhale. Breath into the jar. This creates a helpful vapor.
Be sure and keep eyes closed. As you feel the effects of the vapor, it could sting the eyes. Take several breaths. Repeat as often as needed to help relieve sinus pressure, nasal allergy symptoms, headache...
This is an adult-only recipe as peppermint may cause breathing issues in very young children.
