Heal Your Sinuses Using Aromatherapy Oils

By | January 25, 2012

Sinusitis is a common infection which is found in many people around the globe. It is an infection which attacks the sinuses, present on the either side of the nose, and blocks the passage of air. If the same condition of nasal blockage persists for a longer time, it makes the sinuses more prone to infections. The symptoms of sinusitis include cold, cough, headache, earache, toothache, difficulty in breathing and so on. In medicine, there is no permanent cure for these disorders, except using strong antibiotics to fight the infections. But when it comes to aromatherapy, there are good remedies which help us in keeping all such infections away from us.

Of all the techniques which are employed in aromatherapy, inhalation is the best way to treat sinusitis. The blend of essential oils used in treating this disorder, are full of therapeutic qualities which give permanent relief from all the infections caused to the sinuses.

The essential oils suggested for healing the sinusitis are Bergamot oil, Eucalyptus oil and peppermint oil. Since the technique for employing these oils is through inhalation, you can directly put few drops of oil in to a hot water bowl and can inhale, by covering the head with a towel, so that the vapor will not escape.

Instead if you want to massage the oil for pain relief, then you can mix it with a carrier oil and can massage around the base of the head and from inside the eyebrows out towards the temples. Continuing the use of these oils help you in getting relief from sinusitis, in the earlier days and after consistent usage you can see permanent results.
