Sinus congestion can be the most miserable part of a sinus infection. To drain your sinuses, try one of the remedies below:
One of my favorite remedies is to make an herbal steam. To do this, simply boil 2 cups of water and add 1/2 oz. of herbs. Remove from heat and allow to steep 20 minutes, covered.
This remedy is also good for coughing, chest congestion (mullein works great to heal the lungs!) and nasal congestion.
- Eat raw garlic - you can mince the garlic and eat it on bread if you have a hard time eating it plain.
- Here's a recipe from Earth Clinic:
1 cup tomato juice
1 tsp chopped fresh garlic
1/2 tsp of hot sauce
1 tsp lemon juice
a pinch or two of celery salt for flavor
Note: Be sure to use these remedies more than once, say 3-4 times a day until completely free of congestion.
There are healthy options to having clear sinuses without taking over-the-counter medicines that have harmful side effects! What are your favorite natural home remedies for sinus congestion?
