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.
Hot Lemon Tea
This one is simple. Warm a mug of hot water and add the juice of 1/2 a lemon to it. Add honey, stevia or agave to taste, to balance the bitter with some sweet. Stay away from sugar to sweeten, as this will feed any potential infection and you are trying to get rid of it! Lastly, add about 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to the mix for a spicy kick. You can always add more if you like more spice, but add it little by little. It builds up fast! The cayenne increases blood flow, reduces pain and strengthens the immune system.
Licorice tea has been a reliable source of relief for a long time. Don't be confused, this dependable herb is far from the candy you may know it to be.

With that said, it's not a surprise that this powerful herb can kill infection while offering quick (and delicious) sore throat relief! Go to any store that sells tea and you are sure to find it easily!
