Doterra sinus infection recipe

Recently I had a terrible belt of sinus however luckily Doterra oils for sinus infection came to my aid using a nasal irrigation

Sinus infection, or sinusitis, is an inflammation of the sinuses and nasal passages. In my case I seem to get from a hay fever which develops into a sinus infection. What happens is that the sinus lining becomes inflamed preventing the sinuses to drain.

The  symptoms can vary so you can have some or all depending on the type of sinus infection, but last time i seem to have all of them including the toothache and bad breath:

  • Doterra oils for sinusNasal congestion with discharge
  • Drainage down back of throat
  • Headache in temple or around eyes
  • Pain or pressure, which worsens when followed by cough, or lying back
  • Fever
  • Pain across cheekbone, under around the eyes, or upper cheek
  • Pain or pressure on one side or both of cheek
  • Severe headache in the forehead area
  • Double vision or vision disturbances, in extreme cases
  • Chronic toothache
  • Chronic sore throat or bad breath

Doterra oils for sinus Recipes using a nasal irrigation:

When using essential oils with a nasal irrigation salt is necessary to not only disperse the oils, but to aid thinning of the mucus and decrease swelling in the nasal passages, as well as removing debris, bacteria, and inflammatory substances from your nose. When the swollen tissues shrink, the openings of the sinuses becomes bigger, and all the infected pus and snot can drain better. Try to allow the nose to drain out, but if you blow your nose, blow from one nostril at a time to avoid ear infection.

A note regarding using Doterra oils for sinus infection

Yes, it can be very gross, however very effective.  Also, it may sting a bit and even give you a fizzy felling in the head like when you have sneezed really hard, but continue until mixture is gone. If you get burning that lasts for more than 5 minutes, then re-flush with just warm water until the sting subsides and discontinue using essential oils as a nasal remedy.
