How to Get Rid of Mucus With Steam

Things You'll Need

  • Pan
  • Water
  • Eucalyptus (optional)
  • Towel


  1. Boil a pot of water. Choose a pot that will allow you to place your face in front of it. Fill the water halfway from the top.

  2. Remove the pot from the heat and set it on a heat-resistant surface where you can comfortably sit or stand over the pot.

  3. Add several drops of eucalyptus oil to the water for an added herbal remedy to break up the mucus.

  4. Place a towel over your head and place your face over the pot. The steam should directly rise to your nasal passages because the towel is keeping the steam from going in different directions. Maintain a safe, yet comfortable distance from the pot so you will not burn your skin. Inhale deeply.
