Winter is just around the corner. Many of us may find ourselves susceptible to sinus congestion in these dry, colder months. The dry weather and more time indoors can irritate nasal passageways with exposure to dust and allergens, leading to stuffy noses and congestion. Whether you’re feeling stuffy from extra time sitting by the fireplace or you suffer from seasonal allergies, try this DIY Sinus Relief Bath.
We use Peppermint and Eucalyptus essential oils in this recipe for help ease congestion naturally. Bacteria in the sinus cavities can lead to inflammation, causing pressure and discomfort. Peppermint Oil and Eucalyptus Oil both have natural medicinal properties that can help open passageways.
