Thank you so much for sharing this remedy! Topical coconut oil worked for a sinus issue for me, too. I wouldn't have thought to try it had I not just seen your post.
Last week I woke up with pain in the bridge of my nose. It felt like I had been hit in the nose by a baseball, but I hadn't had any impact to it that I could think of and no bruising. My nose felt a little swollen though. At the same time, I had the feeling that something was in the nasal cavity. I wondered if a polyp could spring up over night? Blowing the nose did not clear the feeling, neither was blowing as productive as usual.
First I tried castor oil, frankincense and tea tree topically. Colloidal silver internally. Then I saw your post. I began to massage coconut oil onto my face over the sinuses and my nose. I did this at least twice a day and sometimes three.
In about 4 days the pain, inflammation and feeling of something in my nose stopped.
Sometimes people find that coconut oil dries out the face. This was not the case for me. It left my skin soft.
Thanks again, Lisa!

I figured...that substances penetrate through the skin. My daughter is 3 and a half and been suffering with a a thick bacterial build up in one sinus area since may 2016...I have been spreading coconut oil over her nose as she has a developmental delay. She was fine before May 2016, I believe. She had a flu, type illness that left her with a thick, clear mucus slime in her right nostril and as a result of this problem seemed to develop horrifying sleep apnea since then until last week. I'm here as I wanted to see if anyone else had realised the benefits of coconut oil regarding sinus and congestion. I used it and realised that her nose was excreting more mucus and the sinus areas, on her cheeks were red areas that started to show. I want to scream that it works! I knew it! My daughter does not understand to blow her nose. No sleep apnea, no humidifiers or near death multiple times whilst sleeping. Amazing. Truly If only I'd known soon. Our Creator is the best. And the medics didn't know, suggest extracting adenoids, tonsils and steroids spray. Left for nearly two years to suffer as she has. Sorry for mistakes I cannot get back to check..It works. Spread over sinus areas on face a few times per day and I will keep giving a spoonful per day. :)
