I came down with a sinus infection and bronchitis this past Thursday and felt awful all weekend; never fails during this time of the year. Anyway, I had some serious sinus pressure that about killed me, figuratively speaking. I very rarely take prescription or over-the-counter medication, other than my inhaler as needed, and had absolutely no interest in popping anti-inflammatories this time around.
So, how did I temporarily relieve myself from killer sinus pressure? Well, by using Olbas Aromatherapy Massage Oil and Inhalant.
This stuff is GREAT, and it has more uses than one! A lot of my clients like me to rub this in areas that have been bothersome prior to their session; I’ve put some on a tissue and hung it from the face cradle when clients get “stuffy” in the prone position (on their stomach); and, in my case, I literally rubbed some underneath and slightly inside my nostrils… Hahaha! (The bottle warning states that this is for “external use only” so this post in no way, shape, or form means that it’s safe to put inside the nostrils… I’m only giving my experience… And so far, nothing bad has happened from doing so.)
Needless to say, my sinus pressure went away in less than two minutes; however, keep in mind that I had to reapply a few times throughout the day because it was only temporary, but to me, that beats taking medicine I don’t feel comfortable with.
In case you were wondering about the ingredients, it is made in Switzerland using the following essential oils…
Hooray for temporary relief from sinus pressure thanks to Olbas Aromatherapy Massage Oil and Inhalant. 🙂
As always, I hope you find this information informative!
