Sinus infection

Sinus infectionI’ve been a little quiet on my blog the last few days as I have been getting over a cold that progressed into a sinus infection and  it rocked me around so much more than I expected.

I’ve never had a sinus infection before. I had a lot of pressure inside the sinus and I couldn’t open my mouth very wide without it feeling like my jaw had locked up.  I thought initially I had strained by jaw coughing, but once I started to clear the sinus infection the locking in my jaw cleared as well.
To clear the infection I started doing nasal irrigation.
I did the irrigation morning and night and after 2 days one side was completely cleared, the other almost clear.  I did one more irrigation on the 3rd morning and it had all cleared by the end of the day!

So what oils did I use?

I used Rosemary and Young Living blend Melrose in a neti pot or sinus irrigation.
My recipe:

  • 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of salt (depending on how salty you want it. It can burn a little in the sinus if you have too much salt.)
  • 1 drop Rosemary essential Oil
  • 1 drop Melrose Essential oil blend
  • Fill with warm water
  1. I measured out the salt,
  2. Added the essential oils to the salt,
  3. Used a funnel to put it in my irrigation container, and
  4. Topped with warm water.
  5. Give it a good shake before using it (making sure the salt has all dissolved)
  6. I irrigate about 1/4 of the solution
  7. Stop and give my nose a good blow to clear it out
  8. Repeat this steps 6 and 7 three more times till all the solution is gone.

Why did I use these oils? Both Rosemary and Melrose are great for disinfecting, immune boosting and very soothing for inflamed sinus.
