What is a good stopped up head cure?

My head has been stopped up for a week now.

One idea to get your head flowing again includes heating up a large amount of water to boiling, then let it cool for a minute, then put your head over it and breathe deeply. The moisture helps decrease mucus secretions.

Fill a bowl with warm water. Add five drops of Eucalyptus essential oil. Place your face over the bowl with a towel covering your head. Breath in the steam vapors.

Try steam in the shower. But I bought something at the drug store called a Nettie Pot--sounds gross, but it sort of works. You gently squeeze warm water combined with a packet they provide of (I think) saline into your nostril till it comes out the other nostril. Clears sinuses.

If you would want to buy some medication, sudafed is pretty good at releasing sinus pressure and letting mucus pass through. Eating some hot food like chicken noodle soup can help clear your head up. Another good thing to use is Vicks vapor rub.


Answer by  Huntress (1935)

I can't take over the counter medicines for sinus problems so what I usually do is boil water and add eucalyptus and menthol to the water. Lean your face over the bowl and cover your head and bowl with the towel to keep the steam from escaping. Take deep breaths through your nose for at least 5 minutes.

I had a doctor recommend using warm salt water and sniffing it up your nose as you would do with nasal spray. It clears and heals your sinuses.

If you are going for all natural, try taking a hot cloth and putting it over your eyes across your face, also try a steam shower.
