Place a few drops of essential oil into a bowl of very hot water. Lean
over the bowl (approximately 8 inches from the water, or choose a comfortable
distance for you), and drape a towel over your head.
Inhale the steam deeply for 5-10 minutes, (again, the
length of time should be determined by your comfort level), remove
the towel from your head, and blot the moisture from your face.
Hint: Once you are finished, leaving the bowl
and its contents out in the open will continue to release the healing
steam and aromas into the air, so don't be so quick to dump it down
