It never fails. A fun and festive holiday is approaching and you are blessed with the gift of a sinus cold. Who wants to be in the family photo with a red nose and watery eyes? Nobody does and that’s why we want to share the powerful natural ways you can be sinus pressure free for this year’s Thanksgiving feast.
Preventing Sinus Colds
The first step is always preventative.
If you know you are prone to winter colds, make sure your immune system is strong enough to ward them off. Some simple ways to do this are to dress warm, keeping your neck, back and feet well covered. Get enough sleep. Drink hot herbal teas and warm lemon juice with honey. Eat garlic and limit the amount of sugar, white pastas, and breads you consume. This will put you on a good path.
Steam with Eucalyptus to Relieve Sinus Colds
But if you already have a sinus cold, you need some quick relief. This is an easy and relaxing option for relieving sinus pressure and colds. There are two ways to do it.
First, start a hot shower or bath and breathe in the steam. The steam will break up the mucous and relax the tense muscles. Once you’re in the shower, add 2 or 3 sprays of Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist to the steam.
Your second option is a bowl of hot water. You simply pour boiling water into a bowl. Grab a towel, your bowl, Eucalyptus Oil Shower ShowerMist and sit comfortably at the table. Place the bowl in front of you. Add 1 or 2 sprays of the Eucalyptus mist to the bowl. The water should still be steaming. Then place the towel over your head and let it cover the bowl as well. You should be in a steam cave now. Gently inhale the Eucalyptus steam into your lungs through your nose and feel the congestion break.
Eucalyptus not only breaks up the congestion, but it’s also an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral. This means it’s going to calm down your inflamed sinuses while killing the bacteria and viruses that started the whole mess.
You don’t have to be miserable anymore. Find relief today.
