Steaming, Bath Bowl
This is a good steaming bowl recipe It’s one of many that I use for colds, flu, viruses and for my skin. Great for respiratory health and more.
“Fill it with a gallon of water
Into the cold water put:
2 oz. dried eucalyptus leaf
1 oz. dried sage
1 oz. dried juniper or crushed juniper berry or elderberries.
Bring to a rolling boil, then take off heat (I kept the pot covered to keep the good stuff in).
No need to transfer the liquid out of the pot into a bowl. Just put a folded towel on the table and put the pot on it. Lean over the steam with a towel over your head. Breath deep until the steam dies, or you can’t stand it any longer.
Don’t throw out the pot contents. Just put the lid back on when you’re done and heat it up when you need it again. If it seems to be losing potency, throw in another handful of herbs or toss out.
I used my pot for a night and a day before it began to look a little tired.
You may not have all these ingredients, and that’s okay. You could get by with just one–e,g. only juniper. If you have access to fresh material instead of dried, that’s good, if not better. Don’t worry too much about quantity, just toss handfuls in the pot.
You can also use essential oils of the same herbs in the water if you have those on hand. Start with 5-8 drops of each and see how that works for you, you can always add more.
Be well, and enjoy!
