Another way to stop the stuffy nose symptoms of a cold is to use a eucalyptus oil compress.
According to Ann Louise Gittelman, PhD, the oil’s natural anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties help open congested nasal passages.
What you need to do is dampen a washcloth with hot water and then place a drop or two of eucalyptus oil on the cloth. Place it by your nose and inhale…ahhhhh! Relief is just a breath away!
