If you have chronic sinusitis (chronic rhinosinusitis), you may find it difficult to breathe through your nose. Your face might even swell and you may experience headaches or facial pain. This is all caused by the air-filled cavities behind your cheeks, forehead, and sides of your nose becoming filled with mucus. While mucus is necessary to moisturize your nose and prevent bacteria from entering into the nasal passages, this congestion needs treatment. Fortunately, there are things you can do at home to alleviate pain and open your sinuses, allowing the mucus to drain. Home treatments can all be done in combination with medical treatments prescribed by your doctor.
1) Using Water and Steam
Drink eight to 10 glasses of water a day. It’s important to drink eight to 10 8-ounce glasses of water a day. This keeps the discharge thin and more fluid, making it easier to drain. Avoid drinking alcohol and caffeine, which could dehydrate you
2) Steam your face.
Fill a 1-quart pot with water and boil it for a couple of minutes. Remove the pot from the heat. Steam should be coming off of the pot. Cover your head with a large, clean cotton towel, place your head over the steaming pot and close your eyes. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth for 5 counts and then in and out through your mouth for two counts. Repeat this for 10 minutes or as long as there’s steam. Blow your nose after the treatment.
3) Consider adding essential oils.
Use one drop of essential oils or 1/2 teaspoon of dried herb for each quart of water (like you have in your facial steam pot if using). To test any herb or essential oil for sensitivity, steam your face for one minute, then remove yourself and wait 10 minutes. If you don’t notice a reaction, reheat the water and repeat the steaming. The following essential oils have either antibacterial, antifungal or antiseptic properties (meaning they can kill bacteria and other microorganisms that can infect the sinuses)
4) Add cooking herbs.
If you don’t want to use essential oils, you can use cooking herbs. Place 1 quart of water in a pot, bring it to a boil, turn off the heat and add 2 teaspoons of oregano and 2 teaspoons of basil. For added heat, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper. Cover your head with a towel and breathe in the steam through your nose (and your mouth, especially if you have a sore throat or a throat infection). Do this as long as the steam is rising.
5) Take a bath.
Run a bath using water that’s as hot as you can comfortably manage. Add 12 to 15 drops of one essential oil or a combination of oils. Soak for as long as you like and breathe in the steam.
6) Try a humidifier or vaporizer.
Another way to make sure your sinuses don’t dry out is to invest in a humidifier or vaporizer. This can be especially useful if you live in a very dry environment, or during the winter when heating systems can cause your sinuses to dry out
