To relieve your sinus infection you could try over the counter medications or go to the doctor for some antibiotics. But, before you do those things why not try an all natural way of clearing up the stuff.
Essential oils have been used for this purpose for eons. They are all natural and safe to use. The two most popular ones are Peppermint oil and Eucalyptus oil. These oils can be mixed with lotion or carrier oil and put under the nose and around the sinus area. Two drops of either oil or one of each oil mixed with two teaspoons of carrier oil is all you need. This amount will last for several applications so keep the oil mixture in a tightly sealed bottle and in a dark, dry area to preserve the strength. They can also be mixed with distilled water and inhaled by means of a diffuser, steamer, or steam tent. Just two or three drops in the water will do. Inhale deeply for a few minutes several times a day. You should start to feel better within hours.
Oregano is also popular for clearing up sinus infection. It is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial so it kills any bugs that are present. This oil can be mixed with water, juice, canned fruit, or anything else to make it palatable. Mix three to four drops of Oregano oil in your food of choice and eat several times a day. I’ve tryed this before and it worked, not only for sinus infection but it took care of a bladder infection too. The down side to this is Oregano oil has a very strong taste and if it’s not mixed in very well it will burn your mouth. Not a good method for children. It can also be applied topically if the taste is too strong.
Lavender and Myrtle are other oils that have been used for sinus infection. They have anti-bacterial elements that go into effect when inhaled or applied. Other anti-bacterial oils are Lemongrass, Bergamot, Clove, Sage, Patchouli, and Lemon. You could mix a drop or two with the peppermint or eucalyptus oils and apply around your sinuses.
