Camphor for Sinus Pain And Headaches

For sinus pain and headaches, I use camphor. It comes in small blocks and can be purchased from drug stores. Scrape a bit off into a basin, pour in boiling water, put a towel over your head, and steam.


Caution: Camphor is very hot and strong, so make sure your first few breaths are shallow and not too close to the steam. If you inhale too deeply at first, you can choke or, if too close to hot steam, you can burn.
