Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was first attracted to the oils in search of a way to eliminate chronic sinus infections. I had been on 1/2 dozen medications daily and still had sinus infections about every other month.

I picked up Dr. Dan Penoel's book and created my own recipe for a sinus rinse. I had already started using a neti pot but plain salt was not enough.

When I created a salt mix based on his suggestions, I ended my infections and the need for the decongestants, anti-histamines, asthma puffs and best of all- I have control over my sinuses!

Note- Penoel suggests Lavender and melaluca alternifolia... about 5 drops each in 8 tablespoons of uniodized salt. I add some other things to that. Use only about 1/4 tsp per cup of warm distilled water.

He also suggests using a Hydrofloss machine rather than a neti pot, but I find the neti is fine for my needs.

Just rinse the sinuses when you are dehydrated, work outside, feel the sniffles coming on, pollen stirs up, have been in a dusty place or walking through leaves.
Feel better!
