Decongesting Herbal Steam [Eucalyptus, Green Tea & Clearing Botanicals]

(2 customer reviews)


The old-fashioned (& hugely effective) way to decongest when you’ve got a blocked nose or need a calming hit of a relief from a headache or tension. A spoonful in a small bowl of hot water, towel over the head; breathe easily again. (Just opening the jar and inhaling can also help!)

‘Lovely packaging, fast shipping & excellent service. Really pleased with my purchase thank you.’

This is a powerful pot of ‘nature knows best’ back-to-basics pizazz. A clarifying, herbal blend to add to hot water and create the sort of natural steam which is perfect for

  • unblocking congested noses
  • helping to clear inflamed sinuses
  • relieving foggy tiredness and stress
  • calming and soothing headaches

Added skin benefits…
Because I personally love multitasking products, I wanted to take the steaming potential to open and clarify pores here up a notch (why not?) and so the base of the blend is pure green tea, which is wonderful for skin; nutrient rich, anti-inflammatory/anti-irritation and packed with omegas, minerals, vitamins, fatty acids and other things which give cells a boost.

Let’s be clear: with this breathe-easy blend, time spent over a steaming bowl with a towel over your head is time well spent.

The ritual (just add music…):
Pour some just-boiled water into a small bowl and add about a tablespoon of the blend, mixing quickly to release the vapours into the water. Put your head over the bowl with a towel over your head (to create a tent to stop the steam escaping). Close your eyes and breathe in the vapours for about 10 minutes.
(If your nose is very blocked, aim to inhale through your nose just as much as you can – this will become much easier after a few breaths; in fact it’s good to keep tissues within reach because the steam may decongest your pipes quite efficiently!)
Afterwards, blow your nose, rejoice in the good fortune and luxury of being able to breathe, discard the water and finish with the Gentle Rosewater Toner with Green Tea, Volcanic Clay & Balancing Geranium to clear away any lifted dirt/toxins and leave your skin clear and pores tightened.

    This stuff smells divine! I got this for my sister ready for the cold/flu season. My sister tells me that she’s looking forward to her next cold, simply so she has an excuse to use it! (To be honest, I agree with her).

    I’m looking forward to purchasing more Leafology products.

    I bought this along with the balm and I have to say that the balm is more effective with clearing out my cold but I still enjoyed using this! Once my cold was gone I used this once every 2 weeks as a facial steamer. Would I buy again? Probably not although I did enjoy using it. I think I would just stick to the balm 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed using it even if you ended up preferring the Tea & Sympathy Relief Balm! 🙂
