Nasal congestion, or “ stuffy nose ” is not a disease, but rather a symptom that can have several possible causes. Although very uncomfortable, the feeling of a blocked nose is usually not very serious and disappears within a few days.

A blocked nose is actually an inflammation or irritation of the nasal passage that prevents air from passing through the nose (completely or partially) and reaching the lungs.

Here is a solution to relieve a blocked nose. In 4 cups of very hot water, pour 3 drops of eucalyptus essential oil , 2 drops of lavender essential oil, 1 drop of white pine essential oil , 1 drop of niaouli essential oil and 1 drop peppermint essential oil . Cover your head with a towel and breathe the steam over your bowl for ten minutes. Repeat two to three times a day.

Decongestant, inhalation will clear the respiratory tract quickly thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties of lavender, associated with the decongestant action of eucalyptus, the antiseptic properties of pine, the anti-infectious properties of niaouli and the astringent properties of peppermint. This little mixture will help you find clear breathing and a restful night's sleep!

Important: choose quality essential oils. After all you are going to inhale them.
