There’s noting more miserable than being stuffed up with sinus problems or a cold; this remedy will help to clear your nose and head and is a two part remedy. Part one is to massage the face as follows:

Clear your sinuses by massaging very gently around your eyes with fingertips in a circular motion and very, very gently stroking from the sides of the nose outwards towards the ears. Then gently pinch around the edges of the ear and along the ridge of the chin and jaw moving from the centre of the chin outwards towards the ears – this helps to keep everything moving in the sinuses and lymph glands.

Once you have done this, fill a bowl with hot water and add the essential oils listed above – it doesn’t matter too much if you don’t have them all as each of them is antibacterial and clearing – put a towel over your head and inhale the vapours. When you do this, keep your eyes closed as the oils can make your eyes smart. You should be able to breathe more easily!
