We’ve all been there: struggling to fall asleep with a congested nose either from a cold or allergies, searching endlessly on the search browser for any remedy that can help relieve the blockage for chance to breath fresh air again. There’s nothing worse than sinus issues and the struggles that come with them. The good news is that there are numerous effective methods to relieve sinus pressure naturally! Check out the solutions listed below:
Eucalyptus and Cedarwood
You can open your airways with essential oils that promote sinus drainage. Over-the-counter decongestants aren’t for everyone, and eucalyptus and cedarwood have been shown to relieve symptoms such as coughing, congestion, and inflammation.
Our Across the Universe fragrance oil’s top note is led by eucalyptus, while London Calling carries a middle note of cedarwood. Breathe easy by diffusing these crisp, sinus-soothing scents throughout your bedroom or entire space with our home diffuser machines. Aroma360 diffusers provide coverage for homes and businesses ranging from 400-6,000 sq ft!
Pair aromatherapy with a soothing hot shower to ease sinus pain. You can also add hot water to a bowl and take deep breaths over it to open your nasal passages. Steam moistens the air and clears out the thickened mucus that makes it hard to breathe. For longer-lasting relief, consider a humidifier for your bedroom.
Consume Vitamin C
As a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, vitamin C strengthens your immune system and helps relieve sinus pressure. It also acts as an antihistamine and reduces the severity of allergic reactions, be sure to drink a lot of water and stay hydrate as much as you can. Stock up on vitamin C and give your nose some TLC.
