Breathe easier with eucalyptus!  The best known cure from Australia’s rainforest, eucalyptus is renowned for its ability to fight colds and flu, thanks to a natural oil (cineole) that kills bacteria and viruses.  Inhaling its vapors eases the irritation and inflation of bronchitis, clears congestion – and even cures sinusitis!  *Enjoy the benefit:  Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil or three fresh leaves (sold by florists) to a pot of boiling water; remove from the heat.  Create a tent by leaning over the pan and covering your head and the pan with a towel to keep in steam.  Close your eyes and inhale slowly. 

Called Kaiser Advice Nurse today and picked up prescription for sore throat and cold.  Feeling better.
