This was a wonderful solution to an unhappy combination of a migraine and a sinus infection. I used one of those spa facial steamers which only takes about a cup of water, so reduced the oils accordingly. The peppermint made it easier to breathe and the rosemary was very relaxing. Just the smell alone was wonderful - I'm thinking about doing this on the stovetop as a simmering potpourri type of thing. Thanks for posting a wonderful, pampering (and super easy!) spa luxury that can be easily done at home. :)
