If the pain is very dull just lie down and sleep for a few hours. Rest is an effective cure for sinus headaches. The idea is to let the eyes rest for sometime.
Hot Water Bath
Stand under the shower and let as hot water as you can bear on the skin beat against the sinus cavities. Make sure that the bathing room is completely enclosed so that steam develops in the room.
Eucalyptus And Peppermint
These are the best natural herbs for curing sinus headaches. For best effects, use eucalyptus and peppermint in steam and inhale. Add the herbs in boiled water and breathe in the steam that is generated.
Wrap a towel around your head as you bend over the container of boiled water. Both eucalyptus and peppermint have decongestant properties that loosen the mucous and relieve you of sinus pain.
Cut small pieces of ginger and grind them into a paste. Rub this paste on your forehead and keep eyes closed for a few minutes. The anti inflammatory properties of ginger will bring relief from sinus headaches.
