What is sinusitis?

The sinuses are bony cavities behind, above and at each side of the nose and opening into the nasal cavity. They act as a sound box to give resonance to the voice - this can perhaps be best understood by considering how flat and lacking in resonance the voice sounds when the nose and its associated cavities are blocked.

What is sinusitis?

The sinuses are bony cavities behind, above and at each side of the nose and opening into the nasal cavity. They act as a sound box to give resonance to the voice - this can perhaps be best understood by considering how flat and lacking in resonance the voice sounds when the nose and its associated cavities are blocked.

Acute attacks of sinusitis may follow a cold, etc., or be brought on by cold, damp air. An acute attack can be extremely painful, with headaches so severe that it is impossible to move the head without pain. The sufferer may feel quite ill, and possibly have fever. Acute sinusitis needs prompt treatment, as there is a risk, although admittedly very small, of the infection spreading inwards to cause meningitis.

Chronic (i.e. long-term) sinusitis gives rise to dull pain, in the forehead and/or in the area between eyes and cheekbone, with a continually stuffy feeling in the nose. This, too, should be treated very thoroughly, to be sure of eradicating infection.

Recommended essential oils for sinusitis

Frequent (up to 5 or 6 times a day) steam inhalations are the best treatment. Several essential oils are useful to deal with sinusitis, such as Eucalyptus, Lavender, Peppermint, Pine, Thyme and Ti-tree oils:

  • Lavender and Thyme are the most effective when there is much pain,
  • Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Pine are very good at relieving the blockage and stuffiness,
  • Ti-tree is the most powerful antiseptic oil (very important in eradicating the infection).

The best is to change oil regularly to avoid the body to become accustomed to one of them. You can even change during the various inhalations of one day, to check which oil works better for you at some point during the infection.
