Add 5-10 drops in a bath and disperse vigorously before entering the bath. Steam inhalation – This is a really good way of helping to relieve blocked sinuses or congestion. Eucalyptus is one of the most popular oils for this. Fill a large bowl with hot (not boiling water), add 3-4 drops of your chosen oil then lean over the bowl placing a towel over your head and slowly breathe in the until you start to feel relief. Diffusers – There are many diffusers available, one of the most popular being an ultrasonic diffuser which uses water to create a fine mist. These are a great way of enjoying oils throughout
