Usually in the spring, if I take my allergy medication, IÃ¢â¬â¢m okay. But this spring was so crazy with a late snow, with sudden warm weather, then weeks of rainy coldness. The pollen didnÃ¢â¬â¢t know which was was up, and there was so much mold. A lot of people were struggling this year with allergies, and when I get this congested, it usually evolves into a sinus infection.
But there are natural ways to help sinus pressure which you can try before going into the doctor. I have a salve of natural decongestants like spearmint and eucalyptus which helped me a lot. Serenity Health carries something simpler which uses aromatherapy to unclog your sinuses: the Breathe Easy Face/Sinus Pillow. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s filled with an herbal mixture of spearmint, eucalyptus, and peppermint which gently opens up your nasal passages. You can either heat it up or use it cold to help reduce swelling and relieve the pressure in your face.
The fabric is machine washable, and the blue fabric color option is made one hundred percent out of organic material, making it good for the environment as well!
So, if you have killer allergies or prone to sinus infections like me, try one of these natural approaches first before you go into the doctor. If itÃ¢â¬â¢s bad, then by all means see a health professional! But, before it gets to that point, this may act as a good, natural preventative. And, itÃ¢â¬â¢s really relaxing to use as well!
