Aromatherapy is used for different conditions – one of which is Catarrh. Catarrh is inflammation of the nasal, sinus and upper respiratory passages. Using another more common term – Congestion.
Congestion may include formation of mucus but can be due to swelling and inflammation of the tissues lining the nasal and sinuses. Aromatherapy is often used to help relieve congestion due to rhinitis, sinusitis, the common cold, influenza, hay fever just to name a few.
The simplest way to help relieve sinus and nasal congestion is to add a drop or two of known essential oils to relieve congestion to a cotton ball or tissue and breathe in.
Some prefer to do a steam treatment by filling a bowl with hot water and draping a towel over the bowl. Add a few drops of essential oil and inhale for several minutes.
For some, using a nasal inhaler with a few drops added is more discreet especially, if you have to go out in public and want to have something to use that is quick and easy.
Eucalyptus is very well known to help with congestion. But other oils may help include Cajuput, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Ginger, Lavender, Lemon, Marjoram, Peppermint, Pine, Ravensara, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Thyme.
