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 have used a few different methods utilizing essential oils for sinus colds. Amazingly enough, all have worked for me but this method was the most amazing.
I remember one day waking up with a horrible sinus headache. My normal M-Grain oil would not touch it. I could not breathe and was tossing and turning all night from it.
Finally at about 5 am, I was desperate beyond belief. So I flipped open my laptop and looked up naturopathic methods for sinus headaches. I found a site with a method I had never heard of before. It was called oil pulling. I attempted it and within ten minutes my sinus head disappeared.
Basically, you take a 2-3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil and first put it into a little container (something the size of a shot glass). Then add a drop or two of Oregano oil, Melaleuca oil, or Eucalyptus oil (or a combination of them all.....depending what you can stand). Mix well and then place in your mouth.
The next part is what grosses people out. You must try to keep this in your mouth for the next 10 to 20 minutes. The key is to swoosh it all over, pulling it through your teeth, under and over your tongue but never swallowing it.
Try to go as long as you can. During the process, apparently, according to the literature I found, it pulls the toxins out through your membranes in your mouth.....ie) like from under the tongue and your saliva glands. The whole time, your saliva will be collecting.
At the end, you spit it out, still careful not to swallow anything. You will know that it worked because the spittle will be all frothy and white. Either brush your teach thoroughly or rinse with lots of clean water to remove the poisons. I usually do a combination of both.
I found that I did it several times a day for the first day and my head cold was gone much faster than if not. And any sinus headache disappeared almost immediately.
This oil pulling is apparently something that many do in countries like India, etc. And other oils can be used for different things. Some recipes use essential oils and some don't. And oil pulling is not just used for sinus colds or headaches.
It may not work for everyone but it works for me.
