You can make the following solution to drain your sinuses - Nasal Irrigation: Mix a solution of 1 cup warm water, tsp of sea salt and a pinch of biocarbonate of soda. Use a squeeze spray bottle to instill the solution in the nostrils, one side at a time. Repeat this procedure 3-4 times a day as necessary for relief from stuffiness.

You can also use steam baths with blackseed oil or vicks vapour rub. Massage over the cheek area and above the eyebrows with vicks or blackseed ointment.

Please consult with your GP if your mucous is green in colour as you may need an antibiotic. Do note that the above advice can be used in conjunction with antibiotics
