Steam inhalation. Woman inhaling steam from a bowl of hot water while holding a towel over her head. This treatment helps clear the nasal and sinus passages when they are blocked due to a cold or sinusitis. The steam warms and moistens the nasal passages while loosening and softening mucus. Therapeutic oils, such as eucalyptus oil, may be added to the hot water for extra benefit.
