Treatment for sinusitis is usually antibiotics if the condition has persisted longer than 10 days. Nasal rinses and steam inhalations with medicinal herbs can be beneficial to treatment.

Home Remedy for Sinusitis

A good home remedy for sinusitis is to wash out your sinuses with a saline solution. You can purchase sterile saline solution or make your own. Use 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of baking soda to 2 cups of water. Distilled water is best but filtered or boiled water can be used as well.

Once you have your solution you may rinse out your sinuses by tilting your head to the side, pouring some into one nostril, and letting it come out of the other nostril. Alternatively, you can tilt your head back and let the water drip into your throat. Once in your throat suction it with your mouth and spit it out.
