Well, it’s that time of year again. The days are shorter, the nights are a little bit colder, and with that comes stuffy and runny noses, and sinus congestion and pressure. If you’re like me, you don’t have time to worry about trying to breathe while attempting to get LIFE accomplished each day!
When these symptoms present themselves, the first thing we tend to do is reach for the over-the-counter nasal spray, but the truth is, that stuff contains things that just aren’t good for us. Since my goal is to always support mine and my family’s immune system with as many natural remedies as possible, I figured I share some of my go-to natural remedies with you all! All items here are super quick, super easy to make, safe for adults and children, AND each of the Essential Oils used can be purchased when you sign up for the Young Living Essential Oils membership!!
DIY Nasal Inhaler (I call this one Easy Breathesy. I know, corny right. Lol)
Nasal Inhaler (I ordered mine here)
Grab your wick and add eight drops of each oil to the wick. Place the wick inside of the plastic inhaler and you’re done! I told you is was SUPER easy. Use as often as needed when you are stuffy, congested, or have some sinus pressure. Added bonus – keep the lid on this thing at all times when it’s not in use and it will last you a good three months!!!
DIY Nasal Spray
Himalayan Sea Salt (a pinch)
Empty Nasal Spray bottle (I ordered mine here)
Add salt to the empty bottle first. Then add six drops of Frank and four drops of Lavender. Wait a few minutes for the salt to absorb the oils, then add distilled water to fill. Use this spray throughout the day as needed.
