The Best Home Remedies For Sinus Infection

I was talking to my friend the other day, who complained of yet another sinus infection. Runny nose, facial pain, difficulties breathing, headaches and fatigue were marking her days as of late. Why do I get them? She pondered. The reasons stretch from air pollution, stress (the omnipresent cause of uncountable health problems) and weather changes, to a lowered immune system contracting a viral or bacterial infection.

Sometimes a lifestyle change is required to eliminate the substances and factors that cause the infection, such as not using chemical cleaning products or starting to meditate. My friend sighed. She needed an answer: how to get rid of the nuisance.


The antibiotics work (with side effects) only if the cause is bacterial, but not if it’s viral. So I told her about garlic, honey and apple cider vinegar – the three natural remedies I found to be the cure to almost everything.

Let’s have a look at how these wonderful products can help you cure uncomfortable, repetitive, tiring, suffocating, embarrassing  (I’m sure I left out some unpleasant descriptive adjectives, but you get the idea) sinus infections.

Steam Inhalation With Garlic

If the infection is not fully blown yet, inhalations should be your first course of action to alleviate discomfort. Boil a pot of water and then add minced fresh garlic to it (3 to 4 cloves should do). Get yourself comfy, cover your head and pot with a towel and start inhaling.

It might be uncomfortable at first, but it will help. The steam alone is an amazing decongestant and helps to clear the breathing pathways. When you add other healing ingredients, the positive effects multiply. Garlic is an extremely potent natural antibiotic, and is antiviral and antifungal. See also my article on how to make garlic syrup for chest infections.

Steam Inhalation with Apple Cider Vinegar

Instead of fresh garlic, you can also use apple cider vinegar. A 1:1 proportion with steaming water will create a powerful mix. Apple cider vinegar thins the annoying mucus.

Steam Inhalation with Tea Tree Oil

Some swear by adding tea tree oil (a few drops will suffice), as the oil is another strong natural antibiotic and antifungal. By inhaling it, you deliver the antibiotic directly to your suffering nasal membranes (this may hurt at first, and you may feel a burning sensation).

Also eucalyptus essential oil helps clear nasal and chest congestion caused by colds and sinus infections, so you can use it instead or with tea tree essential oil.


Neti Pot / Sinus Irrigation

One of the most popular treatments using a salt and water solution to flush out the nasal passages is the neti pot. This is a small ceramic pot that you fill with a mixture of ½ to 1 teaspoon of salt to each 16 ounces (two cups) of warm water. Some prefer to add an additional ¼ teaspoon of baking soda, per cup, to the mixture to adjust the pH of the irrigating solution to that of the body. You need to use previously boiled water to prepare the solution. Don’t use tap water.

Once you’ve filled the neti pot, tilt your head over the sink at about a 45 degree angle. Place the spout into your top nostril, and gently pour the saline water into that nostril. The saline water will flow through your nasal cavity and out the other nostril. Blow your nose to get rid of any remaining water, then refill the neti pot and repeat the process on the other side.

The basic explanation of how the Neti pot works is that it thins mucus and helps flush it out of the nasal passages. People suffering from daily sinus symptoms found relief from using the neti pot on a daily basis. Once the symptoms subsided, you can reduce it to three times a week.

You can also use a special bottle to rinse your sinus. I’ve used a bottle called NeliMed Sinus Rinse to rinse my sinuses and I found it extremely easy to use. You need to fill the bottle with the same water solution that I mentioned above, tilt your head over the sink at about a 45 degree angle. Put the nozzle tip snugly against one of your nostrils. Squeeze the bottle and repeat the same process for the other nostril.

Eat Horseradish

Not many people know that when treating certain conditions, horseradish is just as effective as chemically-synthesized antibiotics and it can sometimes even be superior to over-the-counter drugs.

Horseradish is particularly potent in the treatment of sinusitis and it clears upper respiratory passages, which helps with cold, influenza and lung congestion. Read my detailed article about horseradish including how to use it and recipes to clear your sinuses.

Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) to Treat Sinus Infection

Grapefruit seed extract (GSE), which is made from the pulp and the seeds of the grapefruit, acts as a natural antibiotic. It has antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral properties and is a very versatile natural remedy.


You can take GSE in different forms: you can irrigate the nasal passages, take it in a capsule or tablet form or drink it mixed with water (or other fluid). To get the full instructions on how to irrigate your sinuses with GSE, read my previous post How To Use Grapefruit Seed Extract To Beat Sinus Infections.

Add Honey

Using honey, and not just for eating, is one of the 70 habits featured in my e-book 70 Powerful Habits For A Great Health which will guide you how to take positive steps to improve your wellness and overall health. Make sure to only use raw honey.

If filtered (often done for appearances’ sake), the honey loses most of its healing properties. We really have our priorities wrong these days!

Raw honey is a magnificent antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal bee creation, and boosts the immune system.

Followers of Ayurvedic medicine suggest starting the day with honey water. You simply mix a teaspoon of honey into a glass of warm (not hot!) water. Your body is then geared to start the day. Now, for maximum therapeutic kick to get over a tenacious sinus infection, you can try out this combination:

– a glass of warm water
– 1 teaspoon of honey
– 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
– 3 cloves of minced raw garlic

Mix well and drink to your sinuses’ health!

Or, if the abundance of tastes (or garlic breath), slightly scare you, just try mixing apple cider vinegar and raw honey, and consuming that 3 times a day (the combination of ACV and honey has amazing health benefits). Two tablespoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of honey will send your sinusitis packing.

Elderberry Infusion

The elderberry is a bush that can reach to a great height with small white flowers and dark purple sweet-sour fruit. You can also make an infusion from the flowers of the elderberry plant, which has been shown to prevent inflammation and infection in the respiratory system and is effective against winter ailments including sinusitis. Use 1 heaped teaspoon of dried flowers per 1 cup of boiling water. Simmer for approximately 10 minutes. Allow tea to cool, strain the tea and drink.

If you consume these beautiful gifts of nature regularly, your immune system bolstered, there is a fighting chance the sinus infection will stay clear of you for the foreseeable future. Good luck!

    love this site thanks for all your hard work!!

  2. Ruth Cobb says:

    Rinsing the sinuses with a saline solution with a neti pot, sinucleanse, or Meil Med bottle is very helpful for sinus infections. My daughter’s asthma/allergist recommended this for my daughter after 13 years of sinus infections unhelped by six months a year of antibiotics. It works very well, isn’t painful although uncomfortable, and easy to do.

    • s says:

      Hi what is the neti pot,my 5yr old suffers from sinus a lot and its so hard to get rid of it,any information would be greatfull

      • Jenny says:

        Have a look at this YouTube video to see how it looks like and how it works. Important note – in the video the person uses tap water, however you should use water that have been previously boiled. DON’T use tap water –

      • ann says:

        Neri pot is also call a tea pot it is a small ceramic object usually using for a tea drinkers to soak their teas instead of putting them in a cup or mug.

      • Pat says:

        talk to the pharm. at drug store their are nasal rinse for child same brand as adults — you don’t have to contort your head like the net pot — better for children

  3. Shabnam says:

    Very useful information indeed..

  4. Sharon Wells says:

    I am a sleep apeana patient and know that I have to clean my humidifier often with plain vinegar. After reading about the cider vinegar so good for colds and virus, I have decided to try adding a little of the vinegar into my water that I breathe each night. I know it has a smell but I soon adjust once I have cleaned it. I am going to try several nights of this adding a little to my water and see if it helps. I have faith that it will. Of course I can’t use the honey as it would probably make it tear up and make me too sweet ! Seriously – what better way than for me to breathe all night a little of the vinegar that cleans the unit and now may be enough to keep my sinsues problem down.

  5. Dee says:

    As a flight attendant I suffer very badly with sinus infections and I carry a netti pot with me at ALL times it has been my saving grace for sure can not say enough about it. I even bought an extra one to keep at home to be sure I never left home without it.

  6. mel says:

    COCONUT OIL!!!!!!

    I get sinus infections 27000 times a year… But recently I discovered coconut oil (I go with unrefined) is a natural antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial. I snort a chunk up my nose, tilt my head back, and let it melt down. Do this as soon as you start to feel sinus-ee along with plenty of fluids of course, and you’re set. Works best after a neti-rinse also, as to coat all the skin thoroughly.

    • donna says:

      have you ever considered oil pulling with the coconut oil. I think you are on to something for I just cant get rid of congested nose problems. they say it is not sinus but all in that area and tons of gunk

    • Liz says:

      Please do not inhale ANY KIND OF OIL!
      This can lead to a condition called lipoid pneumonia which can potentially be quite harmful.

    • Ronald Gast says:

      Came across your post and thought I would take the time to respond since I know the agony my daughter went through seeing numerous Dr.’s and being told she wasn’t allergic to anything and that she just had a sensitive nose, but had sinus infections one right after another just as soon as the present one cleared up. This scenario continued for a number of years until she started these supplements.
      This is what she used to get relief, she doesn’t take them full time but at the first sign that her sinuses are acting up( scratchy throat, sinus headache, drainage) she takes the supplements they will head off a full blown infection or at least greatly reduce symptoms, my wife also started taking the supplements after the results my daughter had and hasn’t been to the Dr. for sinus infection since. The supplements listed can be purchased individually ( most cost effective) or as a single supplement don’t know the name but it costs more. Shop Swanson Vitamins, Amazon or Google to find your best deal, I don’t think brand used is specific to obtain results I included this just for reference.

      Quercetin with Bromelain NOW Vitamins Quercetin 800mg, Bromelain 165mg
      Stinging Nettle Root Swanson Vitamins 500mg
      Butterbur Extract 75mg

      My wife and daughter both use it as follows if they have sinus drainage or headache one pill of each 1x/day
      if symptoms are worse and have a sinus infection starting one pill of each 3x/day
      if allergy season is ramping up and pollen count is on the rise they will start taking the supplements preventatively one pill of each 1x/day prior to symptoms to prevent the inevitable misery that’s coming.

      As everyone is different your results may vary but I will say this if it helps you make a decision whether to try it. My daughter first learned about it from one of her clients it’s been tremendous for her, should couldn’t function without. She has since shared this with others she has come across and it also has helped them a great deal.

      I probably would not gone to this length to write a reply, but I know how much suffering a person may experience, and how frustrating it is not to find a means of relief or a professional who you would think would have the answers your searching for.

      I hope you have similar results and don’t forget to share with others. Best Wishes

  7. Daniel says:

    DO NOT USE TAP WATER FOR A NETI POT!!!! Due to our wonderful brain eating amoeba friend it is STRONGLY recommended that you always use saline solution for your neti pot!

    • Jenny says:

      It’s also said in the article to boil the water first.

      • judy says:

        you can use warm tap water though…been using the neti for years and have always used warm tap water….works fantastic

        • gee says:

          Foolhardy. Please NO ONE follow her lead. Tap water should be boiled (on rolling boil for 5 minutes), before using it for this purpose in order to kill naturally present organisms. Peple have died from not following this simple piece of advice.

  8. Basil Jonas says:

    Thanks, will definitely try it . Been suffering with sinus for years …

  9. Naseem Khan says:

    Thank you
    …u r suggestions r wonderful
    I hv been suffering from chronic sinus problem …..
    I will try dis remedy
    Thnx again

  10. janie says:

    Just a note that should be added to the neti pot cleanse. Iodized salt should not be used. Only use salt without iodine.

  11. Pat says:

    Eliminating dairy from my diet improved my sinus health tremendously. I can still use small amounts of pure grass fed butter and Ghee. The milk proteins seem to be the culprit that increases the mucus and provides the perfect environment for bacteria and viruses to flourish in. I also use a sinus flush if I slip up and consume dairy, to clear the resulting mucus.

  12. Rocio says:

    The best remedy for sinus infection or congestion is 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water with lime/lemon and honey 3 times a day. The relief is almost immediate.

    • Theresa says:

      Not to sound stupid but is this ad rink mix or boiled ?

    • meena says:

      I can’t find raw honey and I don’t want to use the regular honey we get in the market because it makes us gain more weight so what can I use instead? Or can I drink it wothout honey?

      • Jenny says:

        The raw honey is both for taste and for it’s antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. If you cannot get raw honey from a trusted source, I guess you don’t have much choice but to omit it and make it more palatable with stevia for example or drink it without it.

      • donna says:

        I was told buy honey from your own area not others. it is suppose to give the best effects rather than store bought. don’t worry weight gain cant put that much on. I lost 60 lbs and would give anything to be heavier due to a stupid excess phlegmn problem allowing me not to eat. so eat the honey

      • judy says:

        all honey is good

    • donna says:

      heard this is good. dr oz mentions lemon and lime are alkaline and not acid. we all have to much acidic foods.

    • susie aumentado says:

      Am i going to drink it or just inhale it?

  13. Angel says:

    I use the netipot regularly but also use eucalyptus oil. I put a cup with some water and oil in it in the bottom of my hot shower and let the steam and oil do it’s job…fabulous for sinuses and coughs.

  14. Forest says:

    I used to have chronic sinus infections. I was diagnosed with a Candida overgrowth and changed my diet. Its has stopped all drainage and so far this winter no infection. If you get them all the time this its most likely your diet not supporting your immune system. Listen to your body.

    • donna says:

      how were you diagnosed. I think that might be my problem. going to acupuncture and they want to do an expensive food sensitivity blood test. but I think it is just too much yeast. that is what my sister had and she cut out all yeast products bread wine etc. she does eat sourdough and scones though. let me know how you were teste or what you did. I am listening to my body and I know something is wrong and the drs say ent then gerd and it is all more stuffed in my nasal, sinus and throat. I think holistic and eastern medicine must be better than any mucinex and drs opinions.

      • Audra says:

        I had chronic sinusitis for decades and when I used a lot of supplements (GFC & Oregano oil caps and lots of probiotics for starters) and got off sugar and carbs I cleared my Candida and sinuses that even two sinus surgeries didn’t help! Unfortunately, the detox can be miserable but 3K a day of Molybdenum helps. It takes longer to undo the damage to the gut that the Candida causes😕 so start researching and get after it!

  15. Kemal Bozyigit says:

    Thank you very much for sharing such informative links and usefıl information. I have been suffering from Sinus Infection problems for more than 30 years. I hope this will help me to get rid of my problems regarding Sinus Infection

  16. ANGELA says:

    TY 4 the reminders! I will start drinking this concoction in the morning as i need to strengthen my immune system! I’ve been getting BRONCHITIS regularly and am tired of being sick!
    Here’s to a win for overall health improvement.

  17. Dorothy says:

    I started to have sinus headache, blockage, etc. and immediately started using a saline nasal spray. It hung on for about a week but never turned into an infection. I am prone to bronchitis so will be trying all of the other remedies here. I don’t like to take antibiotics unless it is absolutely necessary. Thanks for these tips!!

  18. JAN says:

    I use distilled water and peroxide. Mix distilled water and peroxide 50-50 and spray into nostrils with a clean spray bottle and wait 10 minutes and blow your nose. You will feel the peroxide cleaning your nasal passage. Remarkable.

    • Sue says:

      I asked my dr about adding a small amount of peroxide to the saline solution in my neti pot. She said she did not recommend adding anything to the saline solution, and she cautioned me to use only distilled or boiled (then cooled) water. Never tap water.

    • donna says:

      will the perioxide hurt. my ent suggested baby shampoo just 1/2 tsp and it worked some but other ents laughed at that. I juse nel med bottle and buy the salt stuff at costo and u can add baking soda a pinch. make sure the water is not tap or boil or the distilled. thanks for the tip

  19. Richard says:

    I’ve recently started using NeilMed sinus rinse which I found helpful and it does not burn your nostrils.

  20. donna bennett says:

    I enjoyed this website. I have been sick for 16 months with who knows. been to 15 drs all thought gerd and seems to be gustatory or vasasmotor rhinitis you get with age. blood vessels in my nose blow up and then fill up when I eat and drink and also have the nasal drip. so sick all the time. I am going to try some of these recipes and if anyone knows what this stupid illness I have is please reply and give me an answer. I trust anyone but the drs.

  21. wayne says:

    What can you do for a sinus that drips down into your throat?

    • Jenny says:

      If you tried home remedies and the situation hasn’t improved or became worse, it’s better to see the doctor, as some cases require antibiotics.

    • donna says:

      us saline solution in nose and gargle warm water with salt in it. I did buy at native remedies mucus clear and it is drops to put in throat and seems to help get it up.

  22. Glen says:

    I’ve sipped unfiltered apple cider vinegar and honey for years. It always works. If I am out of honey I take apple cider vinegar straight(1 tsp) followed by bottled water plus I have a Himalayan salt lamp by my bed to purify the air.

  23. Maite says:

    Coucou mon ange i’m suffering from cronical sinuses for 3 years now which causes me a lot oh heaudaches i’ve tried lots of things includibg the netipot but didn’t had any results… Now i am pregnant and the headaches are worse… Is all of rhis safe for a pregnant woman? I will try the apple cider vinagre if so … Hope it´ll help

    • Jenny says:

      For pregnant women I always believe they should get first a “green light” from their doctor just to be on the safe side and not to take any risks.

    • sharon says:

      For sinus headaches.. use middle finger and index finger together and tap around your eyes, forehead, ears and the top of your head. The vibration of the tapping helps to break up the fluids. Also, hum. Yes, HUM. The vibration from humming helps!! Do it throughout the day, whenever you remember!!

  24. Menillo E. Rabina says:

    Try inhaling Onion (red)..very natural and effective.

  25. J. David Auner says:

    Breathing hot water vapor from a microwaved wet washcloth is good for congestion and infection. Dr. Low Dog suggests sage tea and thyme tea for infections and ginger tea for congestion – these have worked well and quickly for me.

  26. Carol C says:

    I used to take a lot of decongestants to keep my sinuses clear. I started taking pill sized amounts of Osage Orange (grows wild on trees and pick in the fall) as a cancer cure but what I noticed was that it helped my sinuses immensely! I almost completely stopped having to take the decongestants. There are many other good things about Osage Orange (hedge apples). Extremely powerful anti-oxidant.

  27. Hollir says:

    I’ve been suffering very bad sinus headaches everyday for 5 weeks now, I feel sick when I get them. Have been on 2 diffenrent anti biotics, anti histeimenes, have tried the neilmed and been inhaling olbus oil. Nothing is helping me, I’ve cut all dairy out aswell. It’s really bugging me doctors won’t give me anything else, has anyone any recommendations? I see about the bread above I eat quite a lot of bread could that be Makig me worse?

    • K says:

      Research Bee Pollen. I have suffered from bad allergies all year around, had plenty of sinus infections and asthma which is triggered by allergies. Bee Pollen has many great benefits, it does help! Also look into oil pulling.

    • Nicky says:

      Iv been suffering the same as you for 5 weeks now tried everything still have headaches did you get a cure yet Hollir?

  28. marlyn bretana says:

    Thank you very much for a very educational information …….

  29. Debbie A says:

    I used to get chronic sinus infections. Antibiotics don’t always work. The best natural remedy I now use is colloidal silver water. I make my own. The minute I feel a sinus issue coming on I spray the water into my nostrils with a nasal spray bottle 2-3 times a day and it completely stops an infection from setting in.

  30. Ole says:

    Wath about nasalpolyps…,! ? 🙂

  31. Hector Vargas says:

    All the remedies listed above sound great. They all can provide some relief, but I found a lot more in CLO2 – Chlorine Dioxide. Go to and search for info on it. Simple, cheap, effective and natural. Just add it to the above.

  32. Jackie OReilly says:

    Also I tend to get severe sinus infection following a common cold virus and what I started doing 3 yrs ago is add 1/8 of a tsp of raw live active Manuka honey to luke warm salted neti pot water that was previously boiled and let cool. The manika honey makes the neti pot soooo much more effective. then once my symptoms are gone I go back to just water with salt added once a week or as needed depending on my allergies and the season!!! Good luck Manuka honey also known as medi honey and is the most powerful raw honey I like wedderspoon brand it saved my diabetic mom from losing her leg to infection when after two yrs of conventional antibiotic failed !! Good luck all and be well!! 🙂 google live active raw Manuka honey and medi honey !!!!!! I prefer to neti with it when I have a bad cold that turns into a sinus infection I also take it it like warm tea or as lozenges for bronchitis

  33. Brooke says:

    I had the balloon surgery to open the sinus cavities in my cheeks. When the Dr. Looked at my X-rays he said the areas were so small that he was not surprised I was constantly suffering from pain and infections. This went on for 20 years. He also said I had not developed sinus cavities in my forehead even though I have days where there is so much pressure it feels like it is going to explode. My point is. If you are a chronic sufferer maybe it is time for a drastic step ask an ENT Dr. About a ballon procedure to open your sinus cavities allowing them to drain properly. You will no longer get infections or very rarely and you will feel 100 times better. It is a day procedure that takes maybe three hours tops then the next day you start feeling and breathing better.
    Also try Sinusailia it is homeopathic sinus relief.

    • Shilah says:

      I agree; my daughter had sinus infections about 6 times a year, & finally the ENT suggested a CT scan. That showed she had a “deviated septum” (the cartilage/bone that divides the nose into 2 sections), which was preventing proper drainage of one side of her sinuses. She had to have the septum thinned and then splinted into place so it would heal in the proper position. It was painful for her but it really helped!

  34. Lorie says:

    let me try also this information coz im suffering sinus problem..
    thanks for sharing.

  35. myrna says:

    Thanks for sharing I’ll try it for my sinus problem and for my son.

  36. Breathlessly says:

    Good advice about steam (including hot showers) as well as the neti pot. The stuff about garlic, apple cider vinegar, and honey is new-age nonsense. It won’t hurt but it has none of the claimed properties. Honey tastes good, however! Also, I use warm tap water and iodized table salt in my neti pot. Don’t make life more difficult than it needs to be by adhering to some mystical practice that isn’t grounded in science.

  37. Dr.Ramesh Shah says:

    Homeopathic remedies work very effectively in treating Sinusitis. A qualified experienced homeopath will study all your symptoms and your body constitution to select the most appropriate remedy which will completely cure the problem.There is no short cut to this problem.

  38. Paula says:

    Oil pulling and putting coconut oil in a dropper then dropping it into your nose while lying down with head tilted back works for me. I suffer bad sinusitis yearly and it is debilitating. Lasts about 3mths. Last year i heard of oil pulling and oil drops. Once my sinus started i started using it an managed to keep it at bay. Have used netipot and always felt like my head was going to explode because my sinuses were so blocked, but i know it does work for other people. (do oil pulling and oil drops after the steam of a shower or inhaling steam).

  39. Carla says:

    There’s a fungus among us. I’ve survived the fungus. It what was making my sinuses flare. Candida or just having a slight fungus problem can contribute to inflammation in your sinuses…

  40. Shailina says:

    Thanx alot for sharing your ideas. . Indeed I need a help as my son is been operated for adenoids. .since he was 5 yes old. Nw he is 14yrs bt still he is getting flu and cough.. Plz help me

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Shailina, unfortunately I’m unable to help as I’m not a doctor and don’t have enough knowledge to advice in specific cases.

  41. Joana Aquino says:


  42. Marivic says:

    I am suffering from too much mucus which has gone into my ear, due to rhinitis.. excessive mucus goes to my ear, it blocks my eardrum & then I could no longer hear.. my doctor usually gives me antibiotic, nasal spray & decongestant. I wanted to try alternative means to avoid both the problem & the medicines, can you please suggest an option or any advice? thank you.

    • Jenny says:

      The middle ear space sometimes becomes filled with mucus (fluid), often during a cold but not necessarily. The mucus may then become infected by germs (bacteria or viruses). Basically the treatments for sinusitis can help in some cases to drain the ear (like neti pot), or you can try this garlic oil. Also have a look at my article about Home Remedies for Blocked and Stuffy Nose. If the situation does not improve or become worse, see your doctor.

  43. john says:

    ive had sinus infection for 5 months that started as result of contact cement vapor exposure. no mucus problems but nightly headaches and earaches. antibiotics wont work. netipot with johnson and johnson baby shampoo cleared up earaches. still working on the headaches. im afraid i damaged somethin in my sinuses. [email protected]

  44. Lj says:

    One cup Sterilized distilled water, One half teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 10 drops of alcohol free goldenseal, 10 drops of Teatree oil. I use a Neil medsinus rinse bottle, tilt my head forward and irrigate sinuses. Lavage will burn painfully for the first five seconds. I’ve used effectively for sinus used infections and bacterial infections.

  45. Chris says:

    So far I’ve tried a neti pot, nasal spray, nasal drops, elimiating dairy, vitamind3 supplements (was taking 4000iu now 10,000iu), tried essential oils – and none of it has worked in the least. It’s been 3 months and now into the 4th month with it now and I feel there is no hope. Any suggestions welcome. I have an allergy test but it’s in 2 months time 🙁

  46. Amanda says:

    I have been suffering from a continuous sinus infection for 9 years i dont know what caused it and its been near impossible to get rid of. I’ve been on 6 weeks of amoxicillin, which didnt work. and all kinds of other medications. I just was wondering what you would suggest might help me get rid of this serious infection.

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Bacterial sinus infections are less common than viral ones and if the sinusitis is bacterial, the antibiotics won’t work. You can try rinsing with grape fruit seed extract (GSE) which has both antibacterial and antiviral properties. See instructions on how to use GSE to treat sinus infections HERE.

  47. Paula says:

    We have a concoction our family uses that is called “Sinus Remedy”
    Into glass jar put 1 Cup apple cider vinegar,then 1 teaspoon each:
    chopped fresh garlic
    chopped dried cayenne
    chopped fresh ginger
    chopped fresh horseradish
    chopped fresh onion
    chopped fresh parsley
    Let sit overnight; use 1 teaspoon (or more) in hot water or herbal tea. You can adjust according to available ingredients, but best if you have all. My daughter says it’s better than any medication you can get.

  48. John Stuart Guthrie says:

    Is the powerful inhalation from freshly grated horseradish beneficial or harmful?
