Nasal congestion is an obstruction of the nostrils, which occurs as a result of inflammation of the mucosa that aligns the inner walls of the nostrils.

Inflammation causes the production of excess mucus, which makes breathing difficult and even in some cases causes redness and stinging of the upper lip and nose.

     Natural therapies for nasal congestion are:

Phytotherapy. If you suffer from this nasal congestion, hydration is very important, because with it you can evacuate the mucus, but there are some remedies during the life of the grandmother to clean the airways. These are:

  • Steam with eucalyptus leaves. This remedy has the role of opening the airways and helping to expel the accumulated mucus and phlegm.
