Where I live in North Carolina the pollen dust is EVERYWHERE! It usually lasts about a month, and I can’t wait for it to be over. A lot of people I know have been complaining about their sinuses, so I thought it would be good to share which essential oils naturally support healthy sinus function.
First, what are sinuses? They are the hollow cavities within the skull. They’re connected to the nasal cavity through small channels. When the mucous membrane lining these channels becomes swollen, these channels can become blocked, making it difficult for the sinuses to drain correctly. This is when the trouble starts.
Essential oils, especially those containing Eucalyptus can be very helpful for opening up the sinus cavity. Often times relief is immediate. Both R.C. and the Breathe Again roll-on contain several different Eucalyptus oils, which is why they’re my top picks.
Young Living’s R.C. blend is a unique combination of Cypress, Spruce, and three types of Eucalyptus (E. Globulus, E. Radiata, and E. Citriodora). R.C. is also extremely affordable coming in under $15.00 wholesale. It made my list of 16 essential oils under $16.00! R.C. can be used aromatically (meaning inhaled directly from the bottle, or you can drop it into your palm and cup your hands around your nose and inhale, or diffuse). For topical application just dilute and apply directly to your area of concern.
Young Living’s Breathe Again Roll – On contains four powerful eucalyptus oils: Eucalyptus staigeriana, Eucalyptus globulus, Eucalyptus radiata, and Young Living’s original Ecuador single, Eucalyptus blue. The essential oils peppermint, myrtle, and copaiba also play an integral part in this blend. Using Breathe Again on the go is easy since it comes pre-diluted with a roll-on applicator.
