Essential Oil Sinus Mist
dealing with a flooded basement, we were all feeling a little achy and
congested in the sinuses. Sinus irritation can lead to anything from an
annoying discomfort to raging migraines. One of my favorite ways to
relieve sinus irritation is through essential oil steams. Less intense
than using a neti pot, a good essential oil steam will feel like a
respite at a spa without the expense and it works at relieving
congestion and pressure.
Essential OIl Sinus Mist
1 large bowl, glass or metal
1 tea pot or medium pot, hot water
3 drops each: peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils
heating your water. Add the essential oils to your bowl. Once the water
is near boiling, pour it into the bowl and cover with your towel. Allow
it to sit for a minute, then lower your head under the towel, keeping
the hot, steamy air trapped under it. Be careful: this is hot water in
close proximity to your face. If it’s too hot, wait another minute or
so with the towel blocking too much heat from escaping. Go back under
the tent of your towel, inhaling the scented air as deeply as you can.
It’s okay to take breaks if it’s too hot. Sit like this for about five
minutes, breathing in those healing oils. When you feel finished, blow
your nose. You should feel instantly better!
