Essential Oils for a Stuffy Nose

Would you try anything just to breathe again?

A stuffy nose interferes with your child’s (or your own) breathing. With less oxygen, your voice can sound different, and your ability to eat and drink can be affected. Aside from all that, stuffy noses are uncomfortable and irritating.

Essential oils are magnificent healers that come directly from Mother Earth. They are easy to use and incorporate into your everyday life, and they provide a safe and natural means of healing the body as a whole, as well as isolated symptoms.

To relieve a stuffy nose and avoid using pharmaceutical nose sprays or decongestants,

Use the following Essential Oils:

Breathe Blend
Melaleuca oil
Eucalyptus oil
Peppermint oil
Lavender oil
Helichrysum oil

As stuffy noses happen frequently in our home with so many children, we have often have a blend readily available.

Blend Suggestions:

3 drops Melaleuca, 2 drops Breathe, and 1 drop Helichrysum. Blend and apply to the chest and spine.

2 drops Clove and 3 drops Eucalyptus oil. Apply to the chest and on a Q-tip under the nostril.

Use a few drops of suggested oil(s) in a warm bath, place a few drops on the palm and inhale, place a drop on a q-tip and gently swipe along the opening of the nostril, or diffuse for added benefits.

You can also add essential oils to a carrier oil, such as Fractionated Coconut Oil, and rub the mixture onto your chest, or sparingly beneath your nose to provide more constant relief.

To guard against Cold and Flu season at home and at work, be sure to use On Guard cleaner concentrate.

I also use the following blend on hard surfaces:

5 drop Cinnamon oil
5 drop Clove oil
5 drop Eucalyptus oil
2 C. Water
Mix in a spray bottle
