Neti Pot + Essential Oils = Sinus Support
Sinus congestion? This might be of help!
You may be way more familiar with Neti Pot use than I am, I'm just learning. Honestly the idea made me make a face like this sweet kid.
Last winter I was dealing with some congested sinuses so I gathered up my courage and gave it a try. Well, I found that the neti pot really does do a great job at cleaning out those stuffy sinuses.
I was curious though, would adding essential oil to my neti pot help clear out my sinuses even more and offer respiratory support?
I was a bit anxious the first time I added essential oils to my neti pot.
Was it going to burn or sting?
It didn't, and it offered me even more relief. Yahoo!!

I've used Eucalyptus globulus, Myrtle or Eucalyptus Blue - really whatever sinus oil that seems to fit at that time.
