Introduction: Sinus Relief
when anyone in our family had sinus headaches
and or a very stuffed nose
and nothing else was working
we would use this remedy:
Step 1: Make Your Herbal Mix
You can add or remove any of these items,
and use at your own discretion.
Most important of all: MULLEIN (Verbascum)
other ingredients: colts foot, echinacea, eucalyptus leaf, goldenseal, wild cherry bark
Find these ingredients online or in the wild, and let them dry if they aren't already.
break them up, mix them and store them in a jar until you need them
mullein is a key ingredient- it is very soothing and drying, if this is the only one you have access to
it will suffice.
Mullein grows throughout the U.S. and is regarded as a weed by some but truly an elegant plant.
Step 2: Boil Some Water
Fill a pot about half full of water, add some of your herbal mix ( i usually use about 1/4 cup)
bring the water to just a boil- dont over boil your herbs
Step 3: Steam Your Face and Breathe
Put the pot on a table
get a big towel that you can drape over your head
cover the pot of hot water with the same towel
let the steam work its magic on your face, you can breathe some to
This is boiling hot water and steam so do not hurt yourself
BE CAREFUL AND USE COMMON SENSE
if the steam is too hot wait a while
do not scald your face from the steam
Step 4: DRINK WATER
You should always drink a lot of water when you're sick anyway
to flush out the toxins.
you can keep the pot of water and herbs for a day or two, and repeat the process a few time a day.
