Stuffed up noses

Rosemary Steam BathI think it’s time to clear the snot.

Whenever we have stuffy noses, I clip some fresh rosemary, peppermint or thyme from our garden and put it in a pot full of boiling water. These herbs smell wonderful and have natural decongestant properties. We inhale the steam. Oh, it smells so good and helps clear up the snotty stuff. For adults, it’s best to put a towel over your head and position your face to about a foot above. But I wouldn’t suggest that for kids. Instead, the kids and I gather around the pot and try to catch the steam with our hands and breathe it in that way. It may take a little longer, but it still works.

I sure hope our noses clear up soon.
