Essential Oils and Sinus Infections

Posted on Friday 30 April 2010

Sinus infections have been around since man was on the earth. There are several remedies in the world that can help with sinus infections. Antibiotics are the most popular, but there are natural remedies too.

Aromatherapy is a very effective natural remedy for sinus infections. A French chemist in 1920, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, termed using plant oils for healing as aromatherapy. He studied how the plant’s oils had healing properties.

Steam distillation is the process used to extract the plant’s oils. These oils are called essential oils and they come from the plant’s flowers, leaves, seeds, or roots. This oil is heavily concentrated and is sold in glass bottles in natural stores.

These essential oils have multiple healing properties and can be used for many ailments. Essential oils are so effective because they trigger the body’s natural ability to heal through its scent. So it is reasonable that they would work on sinus infections as well.

Two essential oils that work great for sinus infections are peppermint and cinnamon. Peppermint helps with sinus congestion. Cinnamon relaxes both the circulatory and respiratory systems.

There is also this great combination of three oils for sinus infections. Blend cinnamon, cloves, and thyme together because they all have properties to fight against sinus infections, inhibit bacteria growth, and break up mucus. This concoction helps to cure sinus infections within three days.

There are two ways to apply the oil. The first way is to massage the oil into the skin, but make sure to mix it with carrier oils first. The second way is to add a few drops of the desire oil into a bowl of boiling water and put a towel over the individual’s head.

There are also a few concoctions that are great remedies if breathed in with steam. The first remedy is mixing a few drops of eucalyptus, peppermint, and menthol. The second one is to mix tea tree oil, eucalyptus, rosemary, and peppermint. Putting a towel over the head to breath in the steam will make this application even more effective.
