Ingredients needed:

-- 5 drops of lemon oil

-- 1 tablespoon of sea salt

-- Water

Method of preparation:

Boil 7.5 dl of water and wait for it to cool to the point where the water still evaporates but the temperature is bearable (inhalation with too hot steam can be dangerous!).

After you are done with the inhalation you should not leave the warm room for at least half an hour.
