The steam produced by a vaporizer has a therapeutic effect for those suffering from respiratory illnesses because the humid air helps to relieve congestion and ease breathing. Medications can be added to the water in the vaporizers reservoir, further increasing the meditative effects of the steam. Certain medications contain camphor, which acts as a cough suppressant, in a mixture of oils and alcohol.
A steam vaporizer consists of a reservoir that holds cool water and a heating element that heats the water to the boiling point, producing steam. The steam is allowed to rise and escape from the vaporizer, increasing the humidity and temperature of the surrounding air. The steam released by the vaporizer is pure, the minerals and other impurities in the water having been left behind in the reservoir.
Remember if you use too much salt that it could cause the unit to steam too fast. Unplug the vaporizer and let it cool. Dump the water out and rinse the unit. When refilling with fresh water, do not add salt. Add half distilled water and half tap water, if you live in an area where the tap water is hard water that has minerals in it. Unplug the unit first and let it cool. Remove the steam unit and let the hot water first drip out, then pour the remaining water out and rinse. Be sure to not add salt.
Check to see if the vaporizer is plugged in if it steams too slow. It could be a blown fuse. Unplug the vaporizer and use another outlet. Clean the vaporizer. A slow performing vaporizer may indicate that the unit is not clean. You may need to add a pinch or two of salt because the water in your region may have a low mineral content. But before adding salt, unplug the vaporizer and let it cool. Remove the steam unit and let the hot water drip out. Add salt to water and mix it well. Put the steam unit back in place and re-plug the vaporizer.
