How To Relieve Yourself of Sinus Pressure

April 2nd, 2011  |  Published in Health, TIPS

Steam: Pour boiled water into a large bowl and add a cut, raw onion. Place a towel over your head and the bowl. Breathe in the steam deeply for 15 minutes. The vapors help open sinus passageways, relieving pressure.

Oil respite: Use the steam method adding three to four drops of eucalyptus oil instead of the onion. Eucalyptus helps opening respiratory passageways.

Ward of infection: Add three drops of tea tree oil to the hot water if sinus pressure is from a bacterial or viral infection.

A dash of spice: Add spicy peppers or cayenne to your foods. Cayenne contains capsaicin, which relieves the inflammation that can cause sinus pressure and improves circulation to painful areas.

Massage power: Press the index fingers above the middle of your eyebrows and massage the area in small, circular motions. Move the fingers to area between the eyebrows and massage.
