Sinus Relief – Quick and Simple

You know that uneasy feeling is starting again, the pressure, the throbbing headache – when will it stop?  While at home there is a simple way of using essential oils to get some relief for stuffy sinuses.  There is a wide variety of beneficial essential oils that can be chosen, but I am listing only a few below.

Did you know that inhaling hot steam loosens and thins the mucus in your sinuses?
This makes it easier to be expelled.  Using essential oils with powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties are beneficial in speeding up the relief.

Boil some water and carefully pour the water into a bowl/basin.
Add the following essential oils in the recipe below.

  3 drops Eucalyptus radiatagentle antibacterial and antiviral – immune stimulant
■  3 drops Thyme linalool strong antibacterial and antiviral – immune stimulant
  2 drops Peppermint  – helps to open up the sinus passages – restorative

Mix essential oils and add to bowl/basin of hot water.  Take a towel and place over your head and the bowl and slowly inhale the steam vapors.  Breathe in the vapors for about 10 minutes.  Use 1-2 times a day.  (Not to be used during pregnancy.)

If you would like some options to the above oils, please contact me.

‘til next time


About Aromatherapy Contessa

I love creating aromatic blends with essential oils whether for my Arlys Naturals product lines, for fun, or for customer special orders. I'm just drawn into the veil of mystery that nature has provided through these living plants, not just in their aromatic properties, but also their natural healing properties.
