I am always looking for natural ways to treat my child's symptoms when she is sick with a cold and when her allergies are flaring up. I feel that medications are not always the answer in every situation. I recently came across these cute products, Margo Moo and Digger Dog Steam Inhalers by HealthSmart. They are great for children and adults too. The friendly design helps to make your child feel less anxiety when using the product. Both products work the same way the only difference is the design. They are easy to assemble and use.
The steam inhalers are made to help relieve allergy, cold, flu and sinusitis symptoms, naturally. The treatments last only 6-9 minutes. These particular steam inhalers feature a child-sized soft flexible mask which I really like. The mask is attached to an extension tube that you can retract or extend for temperature control. You can breathe in the steam through your mouth or through your nose. It helps to relieve inflammation and upper respiratory congestion by loosening secretions and reducing mucous levels. Below is a photo of the Margo Moo steam inhaler before assembly and a photo of the Digger Dog steam inhaler which I already assembled.
To operate your steam inhaler make sure you place it on a flat, stable surface within reach, so that the mask is facing towards you. Gently pull straight up on the cover of the inhaler to remove the lid. Next remove the cap to the water heater tank by turning it counterclockwise. Using the included measuring cup, fill the tank with 25 mL of tap water then reattach the cap and cover. These steam inhalers have an optional aromatherapy/drain tank which you can use to add saline or aromatherapy water if you would like. If you choose to do so you can remove the tank and fill it with up to 60 mL of saline or aromatherapy water. After you fill the tank, return it to the unit making sure that the suction tubes make contact with the bottom of the tank. Next position the extension tube to a comfortable position by manually extending or retracting the tube. Slide the variable steam control down for small-sized particles of steam (ideal for inhaling through the nose) and up for large-sized particles of steam (ideal for inhaling through the mouth). Make sure the power switch is off then plug the power cord into the outlet. Turn the power switch on and start your treatment. The steam inhaler will begin to output steam in 60 seconds. Once the steam becomes weak (6-9 minutes) turn the power switch off and unplug the power cord.
Check out the instructional video below to see how the steam inhaler works.
I love both of our steam inhalers, they work great at relieving congestion quickly and they provide a safe effective treatment for my child the natural way. I would definitely recommend these inhalers to any parent whose child suffers from allergies like mine. It is also a great product to have around when your child happens to get a cold or any other illness that causes congestion. Of course talk with your child's healthcare provider to determine the best treatment options.
