6 Essential Oils to Calm a Raging Sinus Headache

Want to know 6 essential oils to calm a raging sinus headache, especially from those who suffer from allergies? I have found that these five in particular, either smelled individually or combined in a blend and diffused, gave great relief.


Sinus Headache Symptoms

When the sinuses become inflamed and/or infected, it can cause severe pressure in your head and neck.

  • sinus cavity & nasal pressure
  • sinus congestion with runny nose
  • pressure behind the eyes
  • swollen or puffy eyes
  • ear canal pressure and pain
  • ear and lymph congestion


Nose-Gut Connection

When people ask me what remedies do I have for their sinus issues, here is how the dialogue usually goes –

Me: “How are your bowels?”

Client: (after laughing), “My problem is with my nose, not my butt.”

Me: “That’s what you think. When your bowels get backed up like constipation, and/or are overactive, like diarrhea, it will affect your sinuses.”

Here is the deal, if toxins cannot get through the bowels, they will try to get out via the respiratory system. If that is backed up, they will start coming out through the skin (aka your third kidney). Culprits contributing to poor bowel movements such as constipation, can be over-exposure to irritating chemicals and low immunity which feeds allergy responses. Lightbulbs going off yet?

So yes, the problem is in your nose, but you have to assess bowel activity to balance this imbalance.


Essential Oil Solutions

Beneficial essential oils would be expectorants, decongestants, anti-inflammatory and lymphatic movers that enhance circulation.

  1. Black pepper – Piper nigrum
