Essential Oils for Sinuses/ Post Nasal Drip

cbd vape juiceI wish I would have known about using organic essential oils for sinus congestion when I was growing up. I had chronic post nasal drip that was so very irritating! Eventually, I learned that stress was a huge contributor to this problem. Now I understand that it was my body's attempt to "swallow the tears" when I was in an emotional or stressful situation. Even excitement or anticipation could trigger a horrible bout of the drip. Here are a few other things that can add to sinus troubles:

  • Diet high in refined sugar, wheat, and dairy contributes to an acid environment in the body.
  • An imbalance of acid can create inflammation in the tissues.
  • Overproduction of mucus occurs to protect the tissues from the inflammation.
  • Lack of proper hydration can thicken mucous and inhibit proper lymph drainage.
  • Synthetic fragrances and chemicals can cause respiratory inflammation as well.
  • Nasopharyngitis is the inflammation of the back of the nasal cavity where it connects to the throat and the eustachian tubes.

A great newcomer on the market of plant-derived medicinal oils is CBD oil, which is especially great for treating inflammatory conditions and can be used both topically as well as consumed. For a list of quality CBD products check out this guide.


When my throat starts feeling scratchy (not even really sore yet) and my glands start feeling a bit enlarged, my first organic essential oils choice is a drop or two of Purification blend (contains Lemongrass which is anti-inflammatory and promotes lymph flow) or R.C. blend in a few drops of jojoba oils rubbed gently with downward strokes from temples on both sides of my neck below ears. I also suck on a Thieves essential oil hard lozenge which really helps if my ears feel like they could plug or ache. Getting the lymph system moving can ward off a full-blown head cold or a sore throat.

Gargling with Melaleuca alternafolia or thieves blend can help kill bacteria in the nose, ears, and throat. I just drop one drop of either of these essential oil supplements on the very back of my tongue and hold it in my mouth, mixing with saliva for several minutes, then swallow. This is very effective when started at the very first indication of infection and repeated 3-4 times for the first hour, then once an hour until symptoms subside.
