Whether it’s pesky allergy time or cold and flu season, our noses and respiratory systems can always use a little extra care. Formulated with essential oils and olive oil, Sinus Formula soothes the area around the nostrils while promoting deep, clear breathing. Try one of the applications below and enjoy some much needed relief!
Direct Treatment: Using a small cotton swab, apply formula directly to nose area and just inside the nostrils. For extra sensitive skin try diluting with a gentle carrier oil.
Neti Pot: Mix 1 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 2 cups distilled or boiled (then cooled!) water and 1-4 drops Sinus Formula in a carefully cleaned neti pot. Standing over a sink, tip your head to the side and breathe through your mouth as you pour the mixture into your upper nostril and let it exit out through your lower nostril. Repeat on the other side.
Aromatic Rub: Sinus Formula can also be used as an aromatic rub! Use straight-up or dilute with a carrier oil, massaging into neck, chest and nose area. Take a few moments to breathe deeply after applying.
What about diffusion? The reason we typically do not recommend diffusing Sinus Formula is because it contains olive oil. When a fatty oil is diffused small fat particles are sent into the air. These can cling to surrounding surfaces, potentially causing a mess. If you’re looking for essential oils to diffuse for respiratory support, try our Immune Defense Solution, Winter Trees Blend (seasonal), Purity Blend or Strength Blend.
