come with it are no small hindrance to life quality. Over the counter medications are a gamble as many of them have such a strong anti-histamine that often, the only result is one of overly drowsy and cloudy head. So, if I tell you that there is a way to heal sinusitis fast, with a trusted natural home remedy, your ears are sure to perk up.
Heal the problem, don't just cover up the problem! But before we go into the remedy, let's understand the condition.
Sinusitis is a common upper respiratory condition marked by swelling and overproduction of mucus in one or more sinuses. Typical symptoms of sinusitis include nasal stuffiness and pressure and pain in the head, especially with motion or when bending forward. Sinusitis can be caused by allergy, or bacterial or viral infection. Treatment typically includes antihistamines, decongestants, and antibiotics. Though frequently prescribed, antibiotics are not effective against viral sinusitis.
Eucalyptus has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and decongestant properties, and has been used traditionally to treat asthma, nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, sore throat, and sinusitis. The oil from eucalyptus is antibacterial, anti fungal, and antiviral, and has been used topically to treat skin and dental infections, and to prevent cavities. Medicinal herbs containing what are known as “volatile” oils have strong and distinctive aromas; these herbs and their oils are generally antiseptic, relaxing to muscles and nerves, and decongest the mucous membranes.
Getting back to your relief, here are the top two ways by which you can take advantage of the therapeutic properties of eucalyptus oil for treating sinusitis and it's related symptoms:
This is definitely the most popular method that relieves sinus inflammation, clears nasal congestion and soothes respiratory blockages as well. For doing this, you need to fill a small tub or a large bowl to about 3/4th of its capacity with hot water. Next, add some eucalyptus oil, either a few drops or a few sprays of Eucalyptus Shower Mist, to the water. Now, bow your head above the tub/pot of fragrant water and drape a towel over your head to create a smaller space for the steam to be trapped in near your face. Keep your mouth closed and breathe in deep so that the eucalyptus essence-laden steam reaches deep inside the nose and the upper respiratory tract. This method is very effective in providing relief from inflammation of the sinuses and blood vessels inside the nasal cavity, soothing nasal congestion and sinus headache.
Dilution and Application
This method is a more direct way of using eucalyptus oil for sinus headache and facial discomfort caused by inflamed sinuses. Simply dilute the eucalyptus with a carrier oil such as olive or coconut oil. Once diluted, it can be applied directly to the aching and congested areas without risking any kind of skin irritation or rashes. This method is great for treating sinusitis in people who have sensitive skin but don't have enough time to go through the steam inhalation method.
