This ceramic, double-valved inhaler was invented by Dr Nelson between 1861 and 1865 and still commonly used today. Dr Nelson's Improved Inhaler can be used to treat chest infections and diseases by inhaling the steam directly as it emerges from the glass funnel. Using an inhaler to breathe in steam is immediate or topical hydration for your vocal folds.
Many West End performers have one in their dressing rooms to use before and after a show.
The directions for use state: For the inhalation of the vapours of Hot Water the water should be Boiling and the Inhaler not more than half filled. When infusions are required the ingredients should be placed in the Inhaler and Boiling Water poured upon them. Volatile and other liquids should be added to the Boiling Water.
