Relieve Your Sinuses

Yay allergy season, not really. Pollen is in the air turning our cars yellow and green and our sinuses on fire. There are few ways I alleviate some of the pressure and congestion during this time of year. I use my oil diffuser, some steams and breathwork during the day to help keep my sinuses clear. Essential oils and fresh herbs can be your friends. A few essential oils and herbs that are helpful to relive sinus and allergy issues are

  • Lavender – great antihistamine
  • Peppermint-opens clogged sinuses
  • Eucalyptus-good for headaches, runny and stuffy noses
  • Tea Tree-good for congestion, runny and stuffy noses
  • Rosemary-relives swollen sinuses
  • Thyme-good antibacterial

How to do alternate nostril breathing

Alternate Nostril Breathing is a great way to help clear out the gunk clogged in there. Make sure to have some tissues handy. I like to do this while diffusing the oil blend.
