  • Not knowing what to do I decided to stop using it and went back to square one again

      Sinus problems have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. You can name it and I have most probably already tried it.

      The first product that I was introduced to was a nasal spray containing ‘Xylometazoline’.

      This helped clear the congestion but the effect was always very short lived.

      I later learned that it was a bad idea

      to use these products for longer than 5 days at a time since they cause something called ‘Rebound congestion’ so in effect I would be getting addicted to them and would get blocked up the moment I’d stop using it.

      My doctor then prescribed a steroid spray that would help stop the inflammation (swelling) of my sinuses.

      This worked very effectively for a ...

      • while but I had a thing against using something that was referred to as a steroid.

        Not knowing what to do I decided to stop using it and went back to square one again.

        Then one of my friends suggested that I take a steam inhalation with a few drops of menthol or eucalyptus once a day and see if that would work.


        Now I do this almost everyday just before I go to bed.

        The steam loosens the congestion and unblocks my nasal passages and sinuses.

        (Also helps with my skin, opens the pores so when I wash my face I get a DEEP CLEAN effect).

        This really helped me and I hope that anyone else who uses it will also get the same benefits that I did.
