Sinus Formula & Respiratory Support

Pranarom Certified Organic Sinus Formula Wellness Formula bottle and stone.

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.

Tea Tree: the Multitasker

This traditional Australian remedy keeps things fresh and clean no matter where you are! A must have for natural skin care, natural cleaning and natural odor control. Organic Cleaning: For an easy, economical scrub, sprinkle baking soda in your tub/sink and add 5-10 drops of Tea Tree. Optional: add a few drops of sunny citrus essential oils. Happy Feet: Apply a few drops of Tea Tree on flip-flops before using a public shower. Sprinkle smelly shoes, bags and sports equipment with Tea Tree to kill the stink! Clear Skin: Use a few drops of Tea Tree on blemish prone areas, or blend with your daily moisturizer to maintain clear skin. Did you know? Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia) is a close relative of Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) and is often used for similar health purposes. The difference is that Tea Tree (composed mainly of monoterpenols and monoterpenes) works to cool and revive, while Niaouli (predominantly 1,8 cineole) works to stimulate. Combined, their synergistic force is superb for immune support – try a couple drops of each in a diffuser or vapor rub next time you feel under the weather. Article by: Hanna Stensgaard
