Tips for steam therapy
While steam inhalation offers numerous benefits for the respiratory system, it’s essential to practice it safely to avoid any potential risks or burns. Here are some tips for safe steam inhalation:
- Use clean, purified water to prepare the steam.
- Allow the water to cool slightly before inhaling to avoid burns.
- Maintain a safe distance from the hot water to prevent accidental splashing.
- Cover your head and the container with a towel to trap the steam and create a steam tent for more effective inhalation.
- Inhale deeply but gently to avoid inhaling too much steam at once.
- Be cautious when using essential oils, as some individuals may be sensitive or allergic to certain oils.
