"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15


Loosening Phlegm with a mini crock pot: mullein steam

This handy mini crock-pot worked out just right for soothing a coughing girl back to sleep.  When she suffered a cough and chest congestion, this little crock-pot came in very handy! She got the benefit of an herbal steam, but with the comfort of her bed.

First, a strong tea of cough tea with extra Mullein was prepared, then poured into this little steam producing pot. Then, there we had our very own version of a steamy bathroom, but where she could rest and get some sleep!

I set it far enough out of the way so as not to be turned over if she should reach for a tissue, but close enough that the steam could reach near her face.
