What is sinusitis?

The sinuses are air-filled cavities in the bones around the nose. Sinusitis is inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the sinuses due to infection or allergy. The cavities may fill up with mucus, creating pressure that in turn causes pain. Symptoms include a blocked nose, general malaise, possibly a headache, and tender cheeks with pain resembling a toothache. The condition is aggravated by stress.

Herbs for sinusitis

The following properties are the one to look for when choosing herbs to deal with sinusitis:

  • Antibacterial / antiseptic herbs will help the body deal with any infection present and limit the risk of development of an other infection.
  • Anti-inflammatories are useful to alleviate inflammation of the sinus.
  • Analgesic herbs are useful to relieve pain (notably useful at the beginning, before anti-inflammatory herbs can reduce the inflammation and pain).

Many herbs have been shown to have antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-enhancing effects that would be appropriate for sinusitis. Here are the most useful one:

  • Eucalyptus has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities, and is a great decongestant. It has been traditionally used to treat conditions related to the respiratory tract, and works well for sinusitis.
  • Thyme has also been used for a long time to treat respiratory problems. It has powerful antibacterial and antiseptic properties. It is also an expectorant, which facilitates the elimination of mucus from the respiratory tract.
  • Finally, Birch, Fennel and Mullein have analgesic properties. You can use one of them at the beginning to reduce pain, at the same time as Eucalyptus and Thyme.
