A. Vogel Po Ho (oil)
Many people use a nasal decongestant when suffering from colds and influenza. However, these chemical formulations can cause discomfort to the sensitive nasal tissues. The Po ho oil formulation can be used a natural decongestant, providing relief from colds, chills and coughs.
Po ho oil combines peppermint, eucalyptus, juniper, caraway, and fennel in its formula. The word for peppermint in the Mandarin language is ‘po ho’, from which the product’s name is derived. The functions of these herbal supplements are as follows:
• Peppermint – decongestant, cooling and fragrant, anti-spasmodic, antiseptic, slightly anaesthetic
• Eucalyptus – decongestant, expectorant, lowers fever, has antibiotic properties
• Juniper – antiseptic properties, reduces inflammation
• Caraway – expectorant
• Fennel – expectorant
As we can see, the herbs used in this product have decongestant and expectorant properties. This means that they work to clear the blocked nasal passages, as well as to aid the removal of phlegm from the lungs. The oil also has a sweet-smelling fragrance, so using this herbal remedy is a pleasant experience.
The Po ho oil can either be used in massage or the vapours inhaled. It should not be used as a nose drop, or in a spray. Contact with the eyes and sensitive skin is best avoided. To use the oil apply three to five drops under the nose, or onto a handkerchief and inhale. It can also be massaged into the temples for rapid relief. Alternatively, put ten drops into a bowl of warm water. Cover your head with a towel and lean forward over the bowl. Inhale the vapours for about ten minutes. This may ease the congestion, and the pressure caused by it.
