Sinusitis is manifested by symptoms such as congestion, runny nose, cough, headache, facial tenderness as well as fatigue and a general ill feeling which is further accentuated when this condition is accompanied by fever.

Aloe provides good results when it comes to reducing inflammation of the lining of the bone cavities that communicate with the nose; so the next natural remedy is ideal to speed up the healing of sinusitis. In addition, it will also help to combat nasal packing which in most cases prevents rest and sleeping well at night. The process to follow is: cut a piece of aloe vera, extract the juice found inside and pour into a small dark glass bottle, so you can use it more often. Store in a cool place free from humidity so the aloe liquid does not lose its properties.

How do I apply it? Just add 4 drops of liquid aloe to the nose (2 in each nostril) just before bedtime. You'll feel the airways become unlocked; the feeling of blockage is reduced and you can enjoy a restful sleep.

First, you must place a few pieces of aloe leaves in a pot of water with some eucalyptus leaves. Remove from heat when it reaches boiling point. Place the pot on a flat surface and, covering your head with a towel, approach your face to the pot to inhale the vapour given off by the union of these two treatment plants.
