Herbal Remedies for Sinusitis
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the lining of one of the sinus cavities. It is often associated with a severe viral or bacterial infection of the upper respiratory tract. Thick yellow mucus discharge, which is often tinged with blood is common.
Herbal support includes immune stimulants, heat-clearing herbs for the mucous membranes, and in severe cases, heat-clearing herbs for the lower body. Also effective are steam inhalations with Roman chamomile or eucalyptus.
