Hi Beautiful Ones!
Here's another way that I've incorporated essential oils into my treatment for sinus issues. This method is by using steam inhalation, which is basically adding a certain amount of essential oil(s) to hot water and allowing it to enter the body via steam transport.
Luckily, some years ago, my daughter received a facial steamer as a gift. Or either I purchased it. Can't quite remember which one. Lol. It really is a fun item to use. Especially when you want to have your own spa day or moment.

Here's what I do. I fill the evaporation bowl of the facial sauna. Then I add the following essential oils to it:
Tea Tree 1 drop
Eucalyptus 2 drops
*Got the above mix from this article on ehow. I then turn on the steamer, place my head at the opening for the face and cover my head and upper body with a towel.
As far as opening your nasal passages, it works really well. I try to do this before I go to bed and in the morning.
I plan on using the following steam inhalation recipe tonight right before I go to bed.
Rosemary 3 drops
Thyme 1 drop
Peppermint 1 drop
* I got this one from my fav essential oil book The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy.
