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.
