more on the cold season

ok, true, I am a bit obsessed about this cold I got. but seriously, who wouldn't appreciate advice from mother nature, even if they are not related to eating? They are related to food! yes, you got it. I am talking about inhaling to attack the nasty stuffy nose. Here is how I have defeated any sinus infection et al growing up:

1 onion
1 bag of chamomile tea
2-3 drops of tiger oil (or a tiny bit of tiger balm, if you don't have the oil)
a large pot of boiling water

Basically, you are making a huge pot of onion-chamomile tea with a hint of tiger balm, put a towel over it and your head underneath it and breath for as long as it is hot. My mom made us do this 3 times a day and we all know, we better listen!
