Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I was plagued with ongoing sinus problems for 26 years prior to discovering how Young Living essential oils could relieve my problem. I was on daily antihistamines, decongestants, nose sprays and the horrible effects of antibiotics which always gave me a yeast infection.

What a vicious cycle I was in!

In 1995 I endured sinus surgery which was supposed to end this battle, however it did not. I was even tested for allergies which didn't really give any real reason for my problems. I was still getting sinus infections regularly and was in the same boat as before.

A year ago, my daughter shared essential oils with me and I have been able to overcome my sinus infections by using them and not needing to go to the doctor for all these chronic conditions.

I use a few drops each of Lavender, the RC, and Thieves oil blends directly on my facial sinus cavities when I notice the pain starting. Whether I am congested or have a runny nose, I use the oils, blow my nose once and am clear.

Diffusing at bedtime is also very effective. Sometimes it seems I need to switch to some different oils, like the Melrose or Raven oil blends.

I work in the construction industry, so I am constantly exposed to fireplace soot, paint, sawdust, sheet rock dust, etc regularly. Being able to control my drainage and sinuses has made a huge difference in my life.

I am so grateful for these amazing oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: breathing,runny-nose — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: breathing,sinusitis — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
3.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
4.Associated topics: congestion-(mucus),sinusitis,runny-nose,sinuses — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link

7.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
