No More Sinus

Essential oils have been used quite successfully in treating painful sinusitis. Certain combinations of oils work to open nasal passages, reduce the swelling of nasal tissues, clear up congestion and reduce the pain. Some of the oils have an expectorant effect that helps to break up congestion and expel the mucus. Others are antiseptic and fight infection or stimulate the immune system. They can provide purely symptomatic relief, but they are best used to prevent little problems from becoming even bigger. If you have a nasty sinus infection or chronic problems, you will need to consult a medical professional.

Lavinia Botanica No More Sinus will relieve sinus conditions; just a touch above each eyebrow and on each cheek bone (the sinus points) can relieve a sinus headache within minutes from five to ten minutes. The same treatment is also effective in immediately stopping sinus drainage, especially the type that starts as soon as your head touches the pillow, making you cough when you are trying to go to sleep.

Below is my leading essential oils for Lavinia Botanica No More Sinus and why I have included in the formula.

Lavender is gentle and soothing and calming. Lavender oil has many uses; it is a powerful antiseptic containing more than 200 compounds that are active against fungi, viruses and other microbes.

In a study in Machon (2001) they performed a controlled study using a mixture of Eucalyptus, Ravensara, Pine and Peppermint essential oils on sinus infections. The control group inhaled from a steam bath three times a day for ten minutes, while the experimental group inhaled the blend for the same amount of time. Charts measuring pain, wellness, colour of mucus, and amount of mucus showed that the mixture reduced discomfort and cleared the subjects’ mucus, while the control group remained the same.

Ravensara essential oil has strong anti-viral properties.  It is prescribed in France and other countries by medical professionals for use in fighting viral hepatitis and viral enteritis. Ravensara is highly beneficial for respiratory infections, especially viral infections than bacterial infections. Whooping cough, sinusitis (sinus infections) and other bronchitis types of illnesses can be supported by using Ravensara in a room diffuser or steam inhalation.
