Home Remedy Sinus Headache

Home Remedy Sinus Headache brings you a list of easy cures to stop sinus headaches and relieve pain.

Home Remedy for Sinus Headache

  • Moisturize the air: a humidifier can help add moisture to the air and alleviate sinus headaches caused by dry, indoor air. You can also try sitting in the bathroom while letting the shower run with really HOT water, several times a day.
  • Neti pots: you can find these for about $10 to $20 at your local drug store or a health food store. Mix a pint of lukewarm water with a teaspoon of salt. Then tilt your head over a sink at an angle of 45 degrees (for example, if you are right handed, tilt your head with left ear towards the sink). Place the pot's spout directly into your top nostril (in this case, the right nostril) and gently pour the solution in. The salt water will flow through your nasal cavity into the other nostril. Some of it may get into your throat. Blow your nose to eliminate any water, then repeat the steps on the other nostril. (See demo video below)
  • Hot wash cloth: soak a wash cloth in hot water then ring it out. Place the wash cloth on a microwave safe plate then heat in the microwave for 5-10 minutes. Before placing the wash cloth over your forehead, rub medicated chest rub (like vicks Vapor Rub) just above your eyebrows in a straight line. Now lay down and relax for about 10 minutes.
  • Spice: eating spicy foods can not only help metabolism, but also clear your sinuses. Some of our editors love wasabi for this effect!
