When we are ill, when we have cold or flu, we usually get tired of the inconveniences caused by stuffy nose. It causes breathing difficulties, our sleeping is disturbed and it usually lasts as long as the flu.
We share with you a few natural remedies to clear a stuffy nose and breathe easily.
There are two oils that are most effective, oregano oil and peppermint oil. Oregano oil has antivirus, antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Generally, these oils are great for respiration problems, but you should be very careful because they are very strong.
To clean a stuffy nose, put only one drop of oregano oil on a clean finger and tap it on your tongue. Do not swallow the oil, but breathe in it through your mouth and breathe out through your nose. Repeat this for a few times and then you can swallow. Have in mind that this is not too simple, your eyes will become teary and you will have a feeling that you have drops in your mouth. You have to endure this feeling, but remember that oregano in this dose is not dangerous at all, and it helps.
You can also use peppermint oil, because it gives the same effect. Just tap one drop of peppermint oil under your nose.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar
Although apple vinegar is used against bacteria, it can also help you clean your stuffy nose. It would be the best if you could drink a small glass of apple vinegar (preferably organic). If this is too strong for you, you can mix 2 tablespoons of apple vinegar with a cup of water, then drink this slowly.
Another way is to bring 1/2 liter of water to a boil and then add 3 tablespoons of apple vinegar. Breathe the steam for a few minutes.
This powerful plant is great for the respiration process, and you can consume it by eating horseradish salads.
You can make an instant natural remedy by grating a bit of fresh horseradish root, and then adding a bit of honey or apple cider vinegar. Put the mixture on your tongue and inhale deeply. Hold the air as much as you can and make a few exhales and inhales through your nose before you swallow the mixture.
