I had heard of this b4 but never tried it. To make a long tale short, went camping, came home with sinus infection. Been suffering for a couple days stumbled upon this article. Being a Native person, we have some herbs. Happened to have the Oil. So I gave it a try. Within minutes, I cleared stuff out and began to breath so much better. I will most definitely continue use. Thank the Lord above and you for posting this article. I pray he blesses you for helping others with this info. Bezon!

Oil of oregano is one of the most potent anti pathogens available. It kills everything including the good bacteria in your gut so taking it longer than 10 days is not recommended. You can make it yourself by soaking it in olive oil for a while to extract the active ingredients.

For simple ease of use, I just buy the oil in supplement form & use it as needed. You could also try to wash your nasal passages using a regular nasal saline squeeze bottle, no need for Nettie pots or wasting money on them, the standard nasal saline bottle works better, you can control the Flo better so no pain or discomfort & can be used to just rinse out the nose with plain water.

Prior to using oregano oil blend (OOB), whenever I felt a cold coming on, I would gargle and/or use a qtip with 50/50 Hydrogen Peroxide and water to swab the inside of my nose. This worked well to hold off most infections, but there were times that swabbing the nose was not enough to reach the deepest regions of the sinus cavity.

I had been googling the topic and stumbled across people inhaling or using the neti pot to solve the problem. Since I wasn't interested in using a neti pot, it seemed logical to me to somehow get the OOB vapors into my nose and throat. The good news is that it was VERY EASY, and quick. All I had to do was microwave half a cup of water in a mug for 2 min and put 2 drops of OOB in it. Once it was ready, I would take 20 to 30 deep breaths (working my way up to it, since the first few inhalations sting) over the next couple of minutes (with eyes closed, otherwise it will sting your eyes). The great thing about OOB is that it has multiple traits. It's anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant. But the thing that really surprised me is that it's also an anesthetic/analgesic.

So, while the first 10 sniffs stung, after a while the stinging went away and OOB's analgesic property kicked in. Any pain or discomfort in my sinuses or throat was pretty much eliminated, and that lasted many hours. If the pain lingered I would do another round. That alone (the pain relief) would be enough to recommend the regimen, but it also hits the viruses and bacteria causing the problem. Wow! And to cap it all off, each “treatment” costs about 3 cents.

To be clear, if your pain is in your sinuses, inhale via your nose. If it's in the throat, inhale through your mouth. With throat pain, I would also do the water/peroxide gargle to hit it from both sides.

Without any doubt, this is the MOST powerful thing in my arsenal to fight colds and viruses. It's truly amazing. And I'm shocked that there's not been more written on the Internet about this. Most people recommend putting a few drops of OOB under the tongue, but I've tried that, and it doesn't compare to the immediate benefits of inhaling it. I hope you try this out and reap the benefits. God Bless you all!

Oregano Oil for a Sinus Infection

Ingest once a day. It's very powerful. You can also steam inhale. Post nasal drip is thought to be caused either a fungus or mold that's got into the sinus. Get a lrg bath towel, a small saucepan pot of hot water, and wild oregano oil. We like Oreganol (no affiliation, just like it). Place 5-6 drops wild oregano oil in the pot, cover your head and pot with the towel, close your eyes, and breath in deeply through your nose. You can do this am & pm.

I read about oregano JUICE for sinus infection here years ago. I got an infection that simply wouldn't budge. Very distressing. Thick obstructive post nasal drainage discharge pressing on my swallowing mechanism, waking in the middle of the night gasping with completely blocked airways. I am a huge proponent of oregano for infections and viruses but this thing wasn't moving an inch with all the capsules and oil I was throwing at it.

Then I remembered about the JUICE option and thought well hell, if it doesn't work then I'll just have to knuckle under and go the antibiotic route. I ordered a couple of bottles of juice, and last night they arrived. I diluted 4 capfuls in 250ml distilled water and ran it through my sinuses with a neti pot.

Within an hour – ONE HOUR – I noticed there was no more pressure on my swallowing mechanism. I went to sleep normally and was not disturbed once overnight. In the morning, back of my throat still clear and “dry”. i'm clearing a rhinovirus right now and there was some disturbance later in the AM but I ran the oregano juice through again at noon, and as I type this, my sinuses feel clearer and lighter than they have in many many weeks. I also use the juice in dilution in my waterpik to gently disinfect my gumline. This stuff is truly God's gift. Now with the first two cases of confirmed 2019NCoV only twenty minutes from where I live, I am armed to the teeth with oregano.

Stay well, friends.

I use undiluted essential oils all the time with no issues. I put a few drops of oregano oil under my tongue daily.

I have had sinus infections for 8yrs straight!! Like clock work had to go to doctors for antibiotics. The problem with that is it was causing Year infections due to killing all good bacteria in my body as well. Finally I went to the health food store in dire straights, all stuffed up and asked the naturalist what to do? She said put 3 drops of oregano oil in a shot glass of warm water and in 3 days you will feel a ton better and won't need that antibiotic! Sooooo thankful! I also use to be on Zyrtec every day of my life because I suffered with postnasal and vertigo. Ever since I have been taking oregano oil, I am medication free. If I start to feel any symptoms, I may take a shot or two a day and it takes away all symptoms. During cold and flu season, I take one shot every day or every other day! Amazing stuff!!

I take the time to write this review in hopes it will help someone like me. Oregano Oil sounded hokey to me, but I was DESPERATE, dealing with chronic sinus disease for almost 2 years, extreme pain, pressure in my head on a daily basis that would turn into severe migraines from all the pressure in my head. Dizzy constantly, not able to work & look at my computer w/o getting a migraine. Finally had sinus surgery in hopes it would cure me, but it didn't. Taking daily notes & diaries to log every food, allergy med, etc. I was taking & googling every possible remedy I could think of, I came across Oregano Oil. Started 3 drops with apple & lemon juice, twice a day. I noticed changes right away but didn't want to get my hopes up. After about a week or so, I had NO symptoms!!!! I was thinking it was a fluke & for sure would come right back. NOPE, I got my life back!!!! I still have recurrent infections I can feel coming up, if that happens I make sure to start another Oregano Oil routine (having one right now :( But I recommend it to anyone I know & I tell everyone. Including my doctors who laugh it off.

I have sinus infections all the time. My sister told me about oil of oregano. I took 2 capsules each day...one in the morning and 1 at night. I did this for 7 days and my infection went away.

I've had profound good luck with Oil of Oregano helping to prevent sinus infections. I was getting the sinus infections very often. I take the 00 tablets whenever I'm around young children, fly in an airplane or any other situation I formally would get a sinus infection.

Since doing this, I have not gotten a sinus infection. I think it is an excellent preventative and MIGHT work for a mild sinus infection. Of course, one must see a doctor for any serious infection.

I too have had good fortune with Oil of Oregano. I've had many sinus infections over the last three years. I would get them very easily...especially when around children. I probably got one every three months. I now take two O of O tablets a day when I'm around children, flying or if I have even the tiniest symptom. And, so far, so good. I've also observed it like a miracle stop a cold in it's tracks with friends and relatives. I believe it is a blessing.

I see this is an old post but I just found out about OO and I am excited to try it on my daughter who is 4. She battles sinus infections and had surgery a few months ago with no success. We have tried about everything we could and spent hours on the internet finding things that may help. It has lead me here.

My question is she has an sinus infection right now..we just started OO last night 4 drops in water and then 2 drops in water this morning. She of course HATES the taste and says it is really hot. Any tips on giving a child this and how much should she get each day? Thanks!

I don't usually write posts on websites but for this, I NEED to.

For many years, I've had terrible sinus infections -- like clock work! : in-between Sep-Oct, Dec-Jan, Mar-Apr. With out fail! For whatever reason, when there is a change of temperature or season, my nasal passages decide to fill with green mucus and cause my body to think it has a fever...not fun!

So las December my girlfriend introduced me to oil of oregano pills, recommended by one of her friends...it was life altering.

I started taking these pills a week or two before the known months of sinus issues and bam!!!!!! Problem solved!! It has eliminated, no, eradicated my sinus issues completely along with my allergies. And get this, any time I feel my asthma creeping up, instead of taking the inhaler, I drink one of the pills and 3 hours laters I start coughing up white mucus and asthma gone!!!!

I only take the pills 4-7 days straight out of the month and it has helped my tremendously.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if you suffer from sinus pain/congestion, give it a try, at least for a week...you will thank yourself!!

Yes!!! This Oregano Oil is THE BEST!! I have been suffering from sinus infections for about 15 years and had 4 sinus surgeries. I have tried probably every type of Antibiotic out there even hospitalized on a IV Antibiotic, nothing seemed to work. It is a horrible experience. I turned to the Oregano Oil thanks to a good friend. This stuff after 10 days has completely rid the underlying condition that was causing these miserable infections. Thank you Oregano for letting me live infection free. Anyone who may experience the same problem or similiar problems, best thing it is NATURAL.

YEA!!!
