I noticed a post on a friend’s blog today regarding a sinus infection and it reminded me of a home remedy my family has used for many years with a high rate of success. Although I am sure it will not work for everyone, it has worked for everyone I have personally witnessed using this method to overcome a sinus infection. I call it the “Breathe Again Home Remedy”.

It is also available as a printer friendly .doc file.


  • 1/2 Grapefruit (peel only the yellow off and then cut into about 6 chunks)
  • 2 Cups of water
  • 2 1000 MG capsules of odorless garlic – (possibly substitute one minced clove)
  • 2 450 MG capsules of cayenne pepper (40,000 HU)
  • Approximately 20 drops of peppermint oil
  • Approximately 20 drops of eucalyptus oil

Before you start, be sure to have plenty of tissue handy. To put this nicely, it is good to expel as much junk as possible during the process. Just don’t hurt yourself.

Mix the ingredients into a large saucepan, preferably one that would not be easy to get a towel hung on while breathing the vapors.

Bring contents to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.

Failure to use extreme care while performing this next step could result in serious burns or worse. Pay close attention to the location of the edges of the towel and to your proximity to the saucepan. Be careful not to allow the towel drag the saucepan off the stove and onto you. Be careful not to let the heat from the burner ignite the towel. Just be very careful. Do not allow yourself to be distracted by anything.

Using a towel to help trap the vapors from the saucepan around your head, slowly begin to breathe the vapors from the pan. (You should start high over the saucepan at first to test the temperature of the vapor so you do not burn yourself.)

Inhale through your mouth and then exhale through your nose. Do this about 5 times and then switch to inhaling through your nose and then exhaling through your mouth.

You can repeat this as needed.

When you have finished, you can put a lid on the saucepan and allow it to cool. It is then possible to divide the mixture so you can freeze half of it for a later date. The half that you do not freeze can remain on the stove for about 4 to 6 days and can be reheated to again create the vapor to breathe (if needed). You might occasionally need to add a small amount of water to the concoction prior to reheating.
