Calming, muscle relaxing bath with epsom salts (magnesium)
A hot bath is the best way to dispel all cold in the body. To enhance the penetrating qualities of the bath, add thyme, or ginger and baking soda.
For example, a ginger rosemary hot water foot soak.
A hot shower can relax nerves, help expectorate mucus, and the steam can reduce irritation of the throat and lungs.
A humidifier can protect lung dried out from mouth breathing.
Inhaling steam may soothe irritated lungs and break up mucus. May include essential oils. Use a pot of boiling water, or purchase a commercial facial/sinus steamer.
