Are you ready for cold and flu season? Be prepared for a stuffy sinus, cough, and sore throat with our eucalyptus and peppermint shower steamers.
In traditional medicine, eucalyptus was used to help control blood sugar levels in diabetics. Its essential oil was believed to increase insulin production, thus reducing blood sugar levels. Currently, eucalyptus is used to treat coughs and reduce the symptoms of the common cold. Inhaling eucalyptus oil may also help loosen mucus, so it is often used to reduce the congestion associated with bronchitis and influenza. In addition, eucalyptus contains a compound called cineole, which can kill the bacteria that causes bad breath.
Peppermint oil contains a high concentration of menthol, which gives it its characteristic aroma. The menthol in peppermint oil is used to reduce nausea and cold symptoms and help prevent indigestion.
Peppermint oil has also been used to treat headaches and digestive conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome. Peppemint oil may also help reduce nerve and muscle pain.
