DIY Sinus Relief Balm

Create an all-natural antihistamine balm for seasonal allergy relief!



Spring has finally sprung and the flowers are in beautiful full bloom. Unfortunately, with the bloom comes the pollen and subsequently, seasonal allergies. This week we're bringing you a DIY sinus relief balm made with essential oils with a coconut and jojoba oil base.


Head Cold Problems

Once you've created your very own balm, you'll be able to rub it onto your chest, and neck, or even dot some under your nose for faster sinus relief. The balm may also bring some great relief to an overstuffed head by simply rubbing it on the temples or the back of the neck.




Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of Coconut oil

  • 1 tbsp of Jojoba oil

  • 1/4 cup of Sweet Almond oil

  • 1 tbsp of Beeswax Pastilles

  • 20 drops of Peppermint essential oil

  • 20 drops of Lemon essential oil

  • 20 drops of Frankincense essential oil


Directions:

  1. Set out your balm-holding glass jars or tins beforehand for easy pouring.

  2. In a double boiler over medium-low heat, add your coconut oil, jojoba oil, and beeswax pastilles. Stir to combine and remove the mixture from heat immediately after both beeswax and oils have melted.

  3. Once removed from the stove, add in drops of your essential oils. Whisk to combine further.

  4. While your sinus relief balm is still hot and liquified, pour the mixture evenly into tins or jars.

  5. let the balm set up with the tops off until they have fully cooled and solidified, and enjoy!




Tea Time

In addition to the sinus relief balm, Catalyst Tea Company recommends making yourself a nice cup of nettle tea. In addition to relieving muscle aches, and lessening arthritic symptoms, nettle is also a natural anti-inflammatory. Nettle tea may help to reduce the sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes that go hand-in-hand with allergy season.
