Taking medications is not the only solution to cure sinus problems. For more effective relief of sinus problems, inexpensive homecare remedies are just as effective. One of these homecare remedies that can be done to clear the sinuses is aromatherapy, similar to how inhaling steam can help open up congested nasal passages and sinuses. Eucalyptus or menthol oils can be dropped in a bowl of hot boiled water and the patient can breathe the vapors. Another way to use eucalyptus is to simply inhale the fumes directly from the bottle. Vicks VapoRub, which contains natural aromatic decongestants, is also effective by simply dabbing a bit on the skin underneath the nose. Other aromatherapy decongestants include horseradish and Japanese wasabi mustard.
