Hand sanitizer is my BFF. I scrub my hands often, take zinc everyday and I still developed a sinus thing with pressure across my face, under my eyes and
Antibiotics and I don’t get along well. I had C diff two times from taking antibiotics. If you don’t know what c diff is, take it from me, it is the nastiest nasty of nasties! You don’t want to have to deal with it EVER!.
Before it turned into a full blown infection, I turned to a natural solution for my sinus problems, essential oils.. Here’s the story of how I controlled my sinus problem using essential oils and other natural remedies.
My sinuses were clogged……again and I had lots of pressure across my face. I got out my Neti pot and added the saline/baking powder packet and 1/4 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide to warm water. If you’ve never used a Neti pot before, it’s a little strange. It’s used to rinse out your sinuses.
I popped some zinc in my mouth and took a long detox bath by adding a cup of baking soda and 2 cups of Epsom salts to the water. Be careful getting out of the tub after a detox bath , you may feel light headed or weak.
Next I started oiling every 4 hours.
Thieves, lemon, peppermint, eucalyptus, purification, pan away and melaleuca, also known as tea tree oil, are the oils I used. All oils are from Young Living. Eucalyptus and pan away not pictured here.
I rubbed my feet with thieves oil. I suggest looking for a vita flex map of a foot to help determine where the oils might best be applied. U Tube has some helpful videos on this subject.
I rubbed tea tree and purification on my temples, across the sinus area on my forehead and under my nose. I rubbed pan away behind my ears.
I rubbed the back of my neck and throat with lemon, eucalyptus and peppermint.
I diffused different blends of of these oils throughout the day.
I ate chicken soup, (it was Campbell’s) inhaled steam with a few drops of eucalyptus oil added and used the Neti pot 3 times the first day.
Later in the day I noticed the sinus pressure was only on one side. This was the same day! I was truly amazed!
On day 2 I had no sinus pressure just a runny nose. I continued the oiling routine for 3 days and by the 4th day was feeling completely better!
It’s crazy how well and how quickly the oils worked. I am a convert for sure. I recently joined up with Young Living and am really enjoying learning all about oils. Are you using essential oils?
Disclaimer; I am not a Doctor or a homeopathic practitioner. This is based on my own personal experience. Please read all precautions about an oil before you use it. Test an oil on a small spot on your foot before you use it. Be careful applying oils around your eyes. Please do research before using oils on children. All oils are not created equal, make sure to use the purest forms.
