In a recent post published on the blog, I detailed some of the best essential oils for sinus congestion. Did you miss that post? Feel free to click the colored link above, after reading this post, of course.

The contents of that article underscore a bit of research concerning some of the most suitable oils to use to unclog blocked sinuses, and recipes showing how each oil can be used in a steam inhalant blend.

Many people show different reactions to essential oils and, often, some prefer an option where they can add a few drops to their diffuser and relax. All recipes mentioned throughout this article use a diffuser.

If you don’t own a diffuser, consider sourcing an inexpensive one, or refer back to this article, for non-diffuser inhalation blends.
