Even though I've shared this protocol many times on Camp Wander Facebook, I thought I should include it here on the blog too.  This is an easy aromatic, antibiotic protocol to use when your sinuses are congested with infection. It's safe, effective and will make your eyes water but oh it's good to feel the sinuses open up again!  
      Let's talk about why this works so well... 1.  Pure Melaleuca breaks down the biofilm, a slimy substance that coats bacteria totally disabling prescription antibiotics from helping (antibiotic resistance). 2.  Oregano works hand in hand with Melaleuca, attacking the resident virus and killing it once Melaleuca has done it's job of breaking through the biofilm. 3.  Lemon is antiseptic and antiviral and it just makes the blend smell a little nicer. 4.  Peppermint opens up blood vessels to increase blood supply.  This is helpful because the sinus region has very little blood flow.  The extra blood flow allows the infection ("snot") to drop or slide out of the sinus cavities according to Dr. David Steuer, DMD, creator of the protocol. If you suffer from chronic sinus infections you'll want to remember this remedy.  The strong aromatic properties of 100% natural compounds will open up sinus passages, provide relief and begin to heal the infection.  Try it, I know many that like it!

    Thank you for helping me on the way to wellness, Rebecca! I realized the first time I saw a sinus steamer protocol that everything except the peppermint is included in my version of Cold and Flu Bomb*, which also includes On Guard or Shield. Since I already keep a bottle of Cold and Flu Bomb made up and ready to use, I put 2 drops of Peppermint and 8 drops of Cold and Flu Bomb in my steamers. I use my neti pot first, and this two-pronged protocol seems to be helping more than either did alone with chronic allergies and a tendency toward secondary sinus infections. I still don’t have a diffuser, but when I do I will certainly put the steamer mixture in it after I finish inhaling it.

    *For my Cold and Flu Bomb I use equal parts Oregano and Melaleuca, and equal parts of either On Guard and Lemon, or Shield and Wild Orange.

    This is kinda funny. I currently have a sinus infection. I went to the doctor last Friday and he gave me augmentin…and had an allergic reaction. After a week of another antibiotic, I still feel cruddy. Do you think this would work without the oregano? The only one of the four I don’t have! Maybe something else in it’s place?

    Thanks a ton!!

    Thank you for sharing the protocol here as I don’t use FB and would never have seen this otherwise. Could actually have used this about 3 weeks ago, but will definitely keep this remedy on file. And I actually have all the ingredients on hand if needing again any time soon. While I was sick a few weeks back was using a blending of peppermint and eucalyptus with almond oil for a rub which worked pretty well and then was taking the oregano internally. Didn’t think to add the lemon (although I put that in my water almost every day). Hopefully I won’t need this any time soon.

    I just wanted to say Thank you! I have a cold/flu ? Stuffy nose, sinus headache, keeping me up at night and annoying in the daytime. I woke up early this am and tried this. I had everything but the Oregano so I used Cinnamon as a substitute. It still worked nicely and gave me some relief. I have high blood pressure so I don’t buy cold medicine. I’m always looking for a natural solution. Thanks again!
