Inhale Steam From This Vicks Machine to Relieve Bronchitis, Asthma, Congestion, Allergies, Blocked Sinuses & More
Have you ever had some kind of a respiratory problem and gotten into the shower – and felt so much better when you got out? The relief can be startling, even though it's usually temporary. So if this has happened to you, you already know that steam is great for relieving miseries like bronchitis, asthma, congestion, allergies, blocked sinuses and more. I used to heat up a big pot of water, put my face over it and cover my head with a towel just to get the steam but the Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler is much more effective and here's why:
First of all, YOU control the amount of steam in the machine. You can adjust the unit to increase or decrease the amount that issues from the machine.
Secondly, one problem with my homemade steam is that it gets in your eyes. Even though I always kept the lids closed feels like I was parboiling my eyes.
And lastly, the steam in this Vicks unit lasts for about 30 minutes because electricity keeps the steam coming. With a pot, the head dissipates in only a few minutes and you either have to re-heat the water or end your steam session.
There are a lot of cool things about this unit.
* For one thing, it costs very little to run this machine. All you need is a small amount of water and a tiny amount of electricity.
* There is no assembly and it is extremely portable so if you're traveling and you're going to need your Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler it's easy to carry along.
* It's easily cleaned with a little bit of white vinegar and water.
* And naturally, there's no assembly. Yeah and double yeah!
Many Amazon reviewers complain that if you want any scent, you have to buy expensive pads that are only good for one use. But this is NOT true. There are alternatives – such as adding a couple of drops of fragrant oils like eucalyptus, lavender, cinnamon or cloves. One ingenious veteran cut up an old T-shirt and made pads upon which he placed Vicks vapor rub. He also suggests that you might want to put a bit of Vicks on your nose and then turn on the steam.
We loved this comment from one Amazon reviewer: "The first two days I got releif (sic) and could sleep all night but would still get congested. On the 3rd day the gates opens and the drainage was terrific." Sounds a bit gross but we all know how she feels. Ah, the relief …
The really wonderful thing about vaporizers and inhalers is that they're a natural way to treat respiratory problems because they are much cheaper and healthier than using drugs. Our bodies are much better off if we don't put chemicals in them so thank you Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler.
