13 Apr 10 Simple Home Remedies for a Stuffy Nose
Is there anything more annoying than trying to breathe when you have a stuffy nose? Nasal congestion is very common – it can be caused by sinus infections, allergies, and the common cold – and it can ruin your day, regardless of its cause. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to get some relief. Try some of these quick DIY remedies, and you’ll be breathing more easily in no time.
1. Drink plenty of liquids.
Staying hydrated is more important than ever when you’re feeling stuffy. Drinking lots of water will help thin the mucus in your passageways, so it will be able to drain more easily. If you’ve got a scratchy throat in addition to your stuffy nose, hot tea is a soothing alternative to plain water (and the steam will help you breathe better, too).
