You have a nasty cold and your nose is blocked? In 2 tablespoonfuls of almond oil, add 3 drops essential oil of eucalyptus, 3 drops essential oil of lavender and two drops essential oil of mint. Fill your bathtub with hot water and add the mixture of almond oil and essential oils. Soak in the tub for 10 – 15 minutes, breathing deeply. The steam combined with the essential oils will open the nasal passages and will help you breath better.
