SINUS BATH SALTS AND HERBS FOR CONGESTION


These easy natural sinus relief salts are great whether you have allergies or a cold. It will not only help relieve your congestion but will also help relax and soothe tired, sore muscles. Bath salts, however, are an excellent way to get in a little aromatherapy and let your skin soak with soothing aromatherapy fragrances reducing stress and anxiety. The salts absorb the essential oils and create a powerful scent when immersed in water and the fresh or dried leaves release a subtle fragrance too. Both have wonderful benefits for your skin. I have a few of my favorite herbs for my sinus bath salts for congestion relief.

Here are some other ideas if you want to play around with the ingredients:

  • Eucalyptus is one of the most common

  • Try anise, thyme, and oregano.

  • Cardamom and cayenne pepper. These really get blood flowing!

  • Try peppermint. Due to its high content of menthol, can feel relieving on the sinuses. It can help to clear airways and get rid of that stuffiness.

  • Tea tree oil. Tea tree is often used to reduce bacterial growth. This can help to reduce inflammation and swelling.

  • Lavender. Lavender is another good herb for the reduction of pain, inflammation, and swelling. Its relaxing nature helps to calm your senses.

  • Fennel seed and horseradish root. Use caution with these if you are pregnant or have sensitive skin..

  • Rosemary. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is a rich source of antioxidants.
