How to inhale steam

You’ll need the following materials:

  • a large bowl
  • water
  • a pot or kettle and a stove or microwave for heating up water
  • towel

Here’s the process:

  1. Heat up the water to boiling.
  2. Carefully pour the hot water into the bowl.
  3. Drape the towel over the back of your head.
  4. Turn on a timer.
  5. Shut your eyes and slowly lower your head toward the hot water until you’re about 8 to 12 inches away from the water. Be extremely careful to avoid making direct contact with the water.
  6. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose for at least two to five minutes.

Don’t steam longer than 10 to 15 minutes for each session. However, you can repeat steam inhalation two or three times per day if you’re still having symptoms.
