How to Clear a Stuffed Nose without Medication

How to Clear a Stuffed Nose without Medication. All stuffed up and wanting to breathe – but
without the chemicals? Here’s how to get relief fast! You will need Steam Licorice tea A saline
rinse Hot peppers Peppermint oil or peppermint tea Chicken soup Eucalyptus oil Table salt
and baking soda. Step 1. Go into the bathroom, close the door, and
draw a hot bath or shower. When the room is filled with steam, inhale
deeply. Or boil a pot of water, put a towel over your
head, and lean over the pot, keeping your head about 6 inches above it. Then, inhale the steam. Pour a few drops of eucalyptus oil into the
tub, onto the shower floor, or into the pot of water. The vapors reduce inflammation and clear sinuses
and congestion. Step 2. Drink licorice tea. Licorice root is an expectorant that breaks
up mucus in the nose and the lungs, so you’ll breathe more easily. Step 3. Snort a saline rinse. Available at drug stores, it’s proven more
effective than medicated nasal sprays. It not only clears the nasal passages, but
reduces inflammation. You can make your own saline rinse by adding
half a teaspoon of table salt and a pinch of baking soda to 8 ounces of warm tap water. Just don’t keep it more than 24 hours. Step 4. Eat something with hot peppers. They contain capsaicin, the chemical that
makes your nose run when you eat something spicy. Step 5. Put some peppermint oil, available at health
food stores, on a cloth or cotton ball and sniff the vapor. Peppermint contains menthol, proven to clear
congestion. Or drink hot peppermint tea, inhaling the
steam as you drink. Step 6. Have some hot chicken soup. This homespun remedy can break up mucus, helping
you get over your cold faster. Did you know If you take over-the-counter
nasal sprays for more than three days, they can actually make congestion worse!

    A really easy way
    If you have a stuffy nose use your hand to massage your nose for a few seconds/minutes and then all the mucus will come out if it gets stuffy again do it for a longer time

    In this day and age Grannies secret soup recipe is powerless against all of the germs we are exposed to. Steaming works for blocked nasal cavities only if they are acute and not infected, Also it depends on the amount of steam you are inhaling if you are going to make it or not. Humidifiers give sufficient amount of steam. At the end of the day treatment depends on the severity of your sinus problem.

    Interesting tips, eucalyptus is a quite common way of treating a stuffy nose and would not know if it works but it has some good qualities in it which can even slightly prevent getting a sinus infection.

    Easiest honest to god trick to relieving stuffy noses is ……. exercise. Seriously, push-ups work best for me, if you have a stuffy nose for any reason do as many push-ups as you can or if you cant do any, hold yourself up in a proper push-up position for as long as your mussels will allow. Your brain will instinctively relieve your sinus of congestion to take in more oxygen and you'll feel great… for the time being =P
