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.
Tea Tree 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.
