I recently saw a business acquaintance I had not seen for quite some time and she told me she had been on medical leave. She thought she was suffering from sinusitis but it turned out it was cancer of the sinuses, which is very rare – especially in women. She went through chemotherapy and radiation treatments and seems fine now although she said she’s not functioning at 100% yet. I told her I would write a blog about the essential oils that can be used to treat sinusitis. If your sinuses are clogged and you use this treatment but they don’t get better in a week to ten days, please go and get checked by your physician.

If you like the steam inhalation method use the following combination of essential oils: 3 drops of rosemary essential oil, 1 drop of thyme essential oil and 1 drop of peppermint essential oil. You can also make a blend of 2 drops of rosemary essential oil, 1 drop of geranium essential oil, and 1 drop of eucalyptus essential oil and put one drop of this mixture on a tissue and inhale throughout the day.

When you are at home and getting ready for bed you can make a massage oil for you neck, behind and in front of the ears, over the cheekbone, the nose, and forehead to help your sinuses. Blend 5 drops of rosemary essential oil, 5 drops of geranium essential oil, 2 drops of eucalyptus essential oil, and 3 drops of peppermint essential oil. Use 5 drops of this blend per teaspoon of sweet almond, grapeseed or jojoba carrier oil and massage the sinus areas as needed.
