A weak tea made of Cayenne powder (red pepper) makes an effective nasal decongestant and is a favorite with sinus sufferers. Also available at health food stores in capsules, cayenne will swiftly break up and remove mucus congestion. It is also a splendid cough reliever.
Ma Huang tea, previously mentioned, is also an effective sinus decongestant.
But perhaps the most effective of all natural decongestants is the old fashioned steam inhaler. Make a dish of tea out of essential oils of Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Juniper, Pine and Rose Geranium—or out of as many as you can obtain. Have the dish simmering on the stove. Place the dish on a plate or in a pan and put on a table. Lean over the dish, keep the eyes closed, cover the head with a towel, and inhale the richly-flavored vapor into the nasal passages, sinuses and lungs. It will swiftly break up any congestion.
If unable to obtain the other oils, Eucalyptus oil alone makes an effective steam inhalant. Recent lab studies have shown that Eucalyptus, black pepper and cinnamon have an inhibitory effect on influenza viruses Al and A2. Cinnamon and black pepper may be taken with food.
