Allergies, colds, and the flu are common problems that we experience each year. It makes us feel rundown – but we understand what is needed to get past it quickly. Too often though the symptoms we experience will mask themselves and what we think is a cold turns out to be a sinus infection.

The headaches, pressure, and nasal congestion can be difficult to deal with and make us feel worse than anything else we might have. There are medicines that you can take – but for some of us this will make us feel even worse or it will take forever for us to feel better. That is why we believe it is best to start using natural treatments to relieve the symptoms.

Steam

The first thing you should try to do is to use steam to relieve the pressure in the sinuses and to clear the nasal passages. Boil water in a pan and combine four drops of eucalyptus oil and two drops of peppermint oil. The steam will loosen the mucus along the nasal passages and keep it from draining and the oils will open them up.

Lean your head over the steam and place a towel over the head to keep the steam inside. Breath it in for ten minutes or as long as you can handle it. Another great way to do this is to take a warm bath and add the oils into it.

Supplements

The next best thing to do is to take herbal supplements. Echinacea will boost the immune system and make it easier to fight off the infection. Garlic and goldenseal have the same property and all of them can be bought at any grocery store. Do not take more than what is on the directions.

Tea And Soup

Grandma was right when she said that chicken soup is good for the soul. It is also good for the throat and to treat sinus infections. Drink hot tea and eat hot soup to clear out the mucus in the nasal passages peppermint tea is one of the most effective for this. The soup should have a good amount of onions and garlic because of the antibiotics they contain.
