Both DS and I have a cold and the calpol plug in things are quite expensive. Are there any essential oils that would do the same thing? I'd like something I could put on a flannel and the leave on the radiator overnight to help with the stuffy head. Thanks!

Tea tree, eucalyptus, pine. Put in water, then on radiator. A flannel will dry quickly

Thanks I'll try to get some when I'm in town later.
