How Sinus Clearing Blend Works To Decongest Blocked Sinuses

Aromatherapy Clinic’s in house aromatherapist designed our Sinus Clearing Blend as a natural remedy to instantly clear your blocked nose and congested sinuses.

Menthol and eucalyptus essential oils are often used to help unblock a stuffy or congested nose due to their natural properties and soothing effects. Here’s how they work:

Cooling Sensation

Menthol, which is found in peppermint oil, provides a cooling sensation when it comes into contact with the skin or mucous membranes. This cooling sensation can help relieve the irritation and inflammation in the nasal passages, making it easier to breathe.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Both menthol and eucalyptus essential oils have anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation in the nasal passages can lead to congestion and blockage. These oils can help reduce this inflammation, which in turn can relieve nasal congestion.

Mucous Thinning

Eucalyptus oil, in particular, has the ability to thin mucus. When you have a stuffy nose, mucus can become thick and sticky, making it difficult to clear. Eucalyptus oil can help make the mucus thinner and easier to expel.

Opening Airways

The aroma of menthol and eucalyptus can also help open up the airways by relaxing the muscles in the respiratory system. This can lead to improved airflow and easier breathing.

Here are some ways to use our Sinus Clearing Blend of essential oils to unblock a nose:

  • Steam Inhalation: Add a few drops of our Sinus Clearing Blend to a bowl of hot water. Carefully inhale the steam by leaning over the bowl with a towel draped over your head to trap the steam. Inhale deeply for a few minutes to help clear your nasal passages.
  • Aromatherapy: Use an essential oil diffuser to disperse the scent of the essential oil blend into the air in your room. Breathing in the aroma can help relieve congestion.
  • Topical Application: Mix a few drops of the essential oil with a carrier oil (such as coconut or jojoba oil) and apply the mixture to your chest or throat. The oils can be absorbed through the skin and provide relief from congestion.

It’s important to use essential oils with caution, as they can be potent and may cause skin irritation or other adverse reactions in some individuals. If you have underlying medical conditions or are pregnant, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional before using essential oils for nasal congestion relief. Additionally, make sure to use high-quality, pure essential oils and dilute them as needed to avoid any skin irritation.
