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.

Where I live in Tennessee, the temperatures fluxuate greatly and barometric changes often cause sinus congestion, pain, or even sinus infections. While Peppermint, RC and the Eucalyptus oils are helpful for some, I have found that the Thieves blend, diluted with V-6 oil helps me the most personally.

What I do is pour a little pool of V-6 oil into the palm of my hand. A cold-pressed vegetable oil or coconut oil will do as well. Then I allow 1-2 drops of Thieves to fall into that little pool and immerse some Q-tips into the oil mixture. Then I swab my nostrils and try to reach as high as is comfortable. Thieves is a hot oil blend, so it must be diluted with a carrier oil.

What happens next is that you start sneezing, blowing and releasing mucus. You may need to repeat this as often as needed until you get the relief you need. You may wish to start by putting some V-6 oil around the bottom of your nose so that the skin won't get irritated. This is what has helped me the most with sinus-related pain.

A friend of mine, who had chronic congestion for years following an illness got relief after doing this on a regular basis until she had a breakthrough!

Another great use for this is when flying. Putting some of these q-tips into a zip-lock snack bag and keeping them on you, it's great for swabbing your nose before breathing that cabin air that can carry so many germs.
