Home Remedy for Congestion

Try using: Tea Tree Oil When you have chest and sinus congestion, put a ¼ teaspoon of Tea Tree Oil into a saucepan with two to three cups of water and put over high heat on the stove. Once the water starts boiling, take a towel and make a tent with it over your head and over the pan to trap the steam so you can breathe it in. Being VERY careful not to burn yourself (the steam will be very hot), take deep breaths of the Tea Tree Oil infused steam.
Why it works: Tea Tree Oil is a natural anti-bacterial and vasodilator. The steam delivers the oils deep into lung tissue where the congestion is.
