4 Homemade Remedies For Stuffy Nose


Garlic’s curative qualities are among the most popular because of allicin, an antibacterial substance. Put a grated garlic clove and a tablespoon of vinegar in a liter of hot water. Inhale the steam for 10 minutes, then go to bed.
You can try to “restore” your smell with a poultice of horseradish. Put three teaspoons of grated horseradish on a piece of gauze, then put the poultice on your forehead. Leave it there for 15 minutes.
Precautions: Grind the garlic with a wooden tool.

Bio drops of fresh lemon juice

Lemon is also great to unclog your nasal passages. All you have to do is to squeeze half a lemon and using a pipette, put two drops in each nostril. Also, you may eat a small piece of ginger combined with honey.
Precautions: Don’t dilute the fresh lemon juice, because it’s not as effective.

Peppermint oil inhalation

This procedure releases abundant secretions from the nose and resurfaces nasal passages. Boil two liters of water and after boiling, mix it with six drops of peppermint oil. Cover your hair with a towel and take a deep steam inhale for 15 minutes.
Even if you sweat profusely, try to withstand those 15 minutes and keep your eyes closed because peppermint oil can be irritating. It’s better to do this procedure before bedtime. Steam hot water with the strong minty smell will help you breathe normally.
Precautions: Peppermint oil is not recommended for children younger than 6 years.

Sea salt drops

You have clogged sinuses and want to remove nasal secretion? You can try this very effective remedy! Boil a cup of water, leave it to cool until it’s lukewarm and mix it with half a teaspoon of sea salt and a pinch of baking soda. Put 1-2 drops of this solution into each nostril, three times per day.
Precautions: Try to prepare this remedy daily, otherwise it loses its properties.
