Coconut oil for sinus congestion? Coconut oil is a drug-free safe approach to cleanse the sinuses and relieve respiratory problems, allowing you to breathe easily.
Dip your finger into semi-solid coconut oil and fill your nostrils. Lie on your back with your head declined. Stay in this position for about ten minutes or until the oil melts and goes down into your sinuses.
Pretty soon you’ll be expelling thick mucous that will unclog your sinuses and make you breathe more comfortably.
Medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) generously present in coconut oil will break down the mucous, loosening it up for easy discharge. MCFAs are natural antimicrobials so it’s perfectly safe and tremendously beneficial.
You can add 1 part peppermint oil to 5 parts coconut oil for a stronger effect if you like. Massage the mixture into your neck and chest for even faster relief.
