Our home remedy for sinus infection is quick, effective, and you can use whatever you have on hand in your yard or natural remedy stash. A couple of my family members tend to have colds and allergies go to their sinuses and just hang out there. The headaches, achey face, and headaches tend to linger, and even pain relievers don’t touch it.
So what do we do? Instead of trying to use oral treatments, we rely on herbal steams to go straight to the site of the problem. Before I show you what we do, I want to

Home Remedy for Sinus Infection
I start with whatever herbs may be in my yard at the time that fit the bill to be anti-germ and drying/astringent. Today’s picks are pine, rosemary, plantain, and a couple of sprigs of rabbit tobacco.
I also add a couple of tablespoons of mineral salt. Saline is so healing and soothing.
If you have essential oils, they can really boost the effects. I love the Kid Safe line, so that anyone in the family can enjoy it in the diffuser or in a steam. Today I used the Germ Destroyer and Sniffle Stopper blends.
If you have rosemary, fir, spruce, cypress, cedarwood, lavender, or lemon- any of those would be great choices for sinus support. Put a kettle of water on to boil, put on some nice relaxing music, and grab a lightweight linen towel or fabric panel, and some tissues.
Add all of your components to a nice heavy bowl, and set it onto a table in front of a comfy chair that will allow you to lean over it comfortably.
When your water comes to a simmer, pour hot steamy water over it all.
Lean in over the bowl and enjoy the steam…put a linen pillowcase or any sort of fabric over your head to help funnel all of the steam up to your face.
Enjoy the steam for as long as you like, allowing any drainage to just flow down into the bowl or take care of it with tissues. You can refresh the steam bowl with more hot water as needed.
