HELP! 34 WEEKS PREGGO WITH SINUS INFECTION, NEED NATURAL/HERBAL REMEDIES PLEEEEEEEASE

Title says it ALL.

I am 34 weeks, not high-risk, I have been drinking a preggo blend tea (RRL, Nettle, Alfalfa, Oatstraw, Mint, & Hibiscus flowers) I made myself for a few months and about 3 weeks ago increased it to 2-3 cups a day. Two days ago I fully incubated (LOL) the sinus infection that my WONDERFUL hubby brought home to all of us, it ran through my 17 year old asthmatic then my 4 year old, then my 16 year old, now me. I'd rather not go the antibiotic route or OTC meds while preggo. I ordered my herbal remedies book a week ago and it's not here yet.

I know many of you ladies are VERY knowledgeable with this topic and would appreciate it some advice.

I have:
Tea Tree Oil
Eucalyptus Oil
Lavender Oil
Cinnamon Leaf Oil
Carrot Seed Oil
Almond, Grapeseed, Coconut, and Olive Oils
and I have a health food store close as well.

I did a nasal rinse last night and plan on doing several today. I also inhaled a steam pot of 2 drops of tea tree oil and 1 drop of eucalyptus oil. Those helped very temporarily.

i just got over a sinus infection after 2.5 weeks...i was 37 weeks preggo when it started...
a humidifier worked wonders along with sinus rinses and 5 boxes of tissues! lol
it was miserable!!! ugh I'm so sorry! try sinus massage and hot steam showers with the eucalyptus.

i hope its over fast for you!

I've been dealing w/a sinus issue here & have started using accupressure points & it is really helpful.

I press the fleshy spot between your index finger & thumbs for a few minutes at a time. Also, rubbing the area on the back of your head that is hollow/at the base of your skull for a few minutes at a time can help. One of most helpful points for me is massaging the area around your nose (where your sinus cavaties are at). It works the fastest for me, but it will loosen it up & drain the mucous out, so have some tissues handy. You can also massage the spots by the bridge of your nose & eyes, just above the sinus cavaties. I do this at the same time that I massage my sinuses. HTH
