Last week I was struck down by a cold. Goosh! I had a runny nose, fever, and every inch of my body was hurting pretty badly. But, the pain decided to climb up to my head and it installed there. I just thought my head was gonna explode at some point. It seemed that I wasn’t suffering from a simple common cold, but I was also suffering from a sinus infection. Great! Ill-fated is my middle name!
Fortunately that my husband has a know-it-all grandma and he prepared a sinus relief balm after grandma prescription. However, it seems that the ingredients are also great in lowering the fever. Thank you, David for saving me from the doomed and fastening up the healing!
Well, since my awful influenza experience turned out in being fine, I really want to share with you the sinus relief recipe of my husband’s grandma. It’s incredible effective and is also kid-friendly.
Grab the following ingredients:
- 1.5 oz. beeswax pastilles
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil
- 12 drops of rosemary essential oil
- 8 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
- 6 drops of lemon essential oil
- 8 drops of lavender essential oil
Next, grab the following items:
- a double boiler (or Bain Marie)
- small jars or any other empty container will work
To start, fill the bottom pot of the double boiler half with water and place it to medium heat.
Then, add your beeswax to the top half of the double boiler. Stir it occasionally to be sure the beeswax is breaking up.
It is not good to overheat the beeswax, because you want to take advantage of its great health benefits, and they will be lost if it is burned. So, keep your eyes on the beeswax.
You will need to melt your beeswax until it is a clear consistency, with no lumps in it, and then you can add in the coconut oil, too, blending until there are no lumps. This only takes a minute or two.
Now add the almond oil and stir in.
Once these three ingredients are all blended and melted nicely, and there are no lumps or chunks left, you can turn off the heat.
Add in all of the essential oils. But be careful to add the the right quantity of essential oils, otherwise you may ruin the consistency of the sinus relief balm.
Mix well and then pour the mixture in its liquid form into the small jars.
Allow them to cool at room temperature and away from sunlight for almost an hour.
How To Use:
Place a small pea sized amount on your fingers and rub onto the chest, neck or dot under the nose for natural sinus relief. The balm can also be put on the temples or the back of the neck if you are having stuffiness all over the head as well. Rub the balm well until it gets deep into the skin.
