A sinus infection can be miserable, not to mention downright painful. Here is another alternative health solution for you. This blend can help to open up the sinuses, clear mucus and fight off germs.
Add the following oils to a large bowl of steaming water. Lean over, covering your head with a towel and spend a few minutes breathing in the vapors. This can be repeated once a day as necessary.
- 2 drops peppermint
- 1 drop eucalyptus
- 1 drop basil
Sometimes when you’re suffering from nausea or sickness, the chances are you won’t want to be take the time to blend oils or you’re at work and your boss and co-workers would probably frown if you brought in hot water and a towel. When that is the situation, I suggest you keep it simple and just inhale your essential oils from a tissue.
Add two drops of one of the following essential oils to a tissue and inhale as needed. Alternatively, add a few drops to an oil burner and inhale the aroma that way. Again, if you’re at work, the tissue is probably the way to go.
