Stuffed nose, natural remedies
Given that, to help the mucous membranes function correctly, it is necessary to maintain an optimal humidity rate. Excessive use of summer air conditioners or winter radiators can amplify thenasal congestions. The moisture present in the air can soothe irritated tissues and help swollen blood vessels. As a first natural remedy, we recommend:
- make frequent air changes.
- If the air is too dry, use a humidifier.
A good humidifier is thediffuser of essences, on the one hand humidifies the air and on the other hand, spreads essential oils into the environment which can be very useful for clearing the stuffy nose. Inaromatherapy, pine essential oil is used for free the nose, especially in combination with the essential oil of thyme and the essential oil of eucalyptus.
The fumigations can be very useful; besides being effective, fumigations are very easy to prepare: all you need is a pot full of boiling water and, if we want to speed things up, some "secret ingredients" like the essential oils themselves! Boil the water, turn off the stove and bring your face closer to the vapors, perhaps covering your head with a towel so as to facilitate the inhalation of the vapors. Inside the water, add a few drops of decongestant essential oils.
Where to buy essential oils?
Essential oils can be easily bought in herbalist shops or by taking advantage of online purchases. On Amazon, a bottle of pure essential oil can be bought at a price of 16.98 euros, the cost is higher than average because it is a "therapeutic grade" oil. For all the info, we refer you to the "Amazon product page".
We always recommend choosing pure oils so you can use them for DIY dilutions. Thyme essential oil, for example, diluted in almond oil, is an excellent moisturizing ointment for the skin. If you intend to purchase the essential oil of thyme to make fumigations, inhalations or to combat bad breath (it has a cooling effect), it is better to choose a food grade product like the one mentioned above.
