Find out what teas are best for relieving sinus congestion, including ginger teas, peppermint teas, chamomile teas and more.

Allergy sufferers know that spring isn’t the only – or even the worst – season for allergies. Ragweed rears its ugly head from the latter part of August to November, with mid-September seeing the height of ragweed misery. Along with that often comes stuffy sinuses, cough, and just general yuck. While there are lots of great over-the-counter medications to help, you can never have too many sinus relief weapons in your arsenal. Adding teas for sinus relief to your fall allergy routine could provide some extra much-needed relief.

There are several types of sinus soother teas that can help tame the effects of ragweed and other allergens that have your sinuses on the fritz. Many of them have other properties that can also help soothe a sore throat, aid in getting a better night’s rest, and just boost your overall health. Let’s take a look at the winners of the Teas Most Likely to Provide Sinus Relief!


Ginger Coconut Tea

1. Ginger Teas

While it may be best known for its wonderful anti-nausea abilities, ginger tea is also an excellent anti-inflammatory, which is what makes it a perfect antidote to aid in reducing sinus congestion. It also helps thin mucus, which allows you to expel it from your body and breathe easier. Ginger tea has been known to come to the rescue of sinus headaches and is just generally your sinus’ BFF tea.

Some ginger teas we suggest you try when sinus congestion comes a knockin’:

  • Organic Ginger Turmeric. Turmeric is a category of its own on this list, so you again have a double whammy of sinus relief in this tea.
  • Organic Ginger Lemon. The hits just keep comin’ with this choice as well, since lemon balm has antiviral and antibacterial properties. Lemon can help soothe your throat, and reduce inflammation.
  • Peaches & Ginger. So delicious, you’ll forget about your sinuses! 
  • Gingerbread Festival. Bring a gingerbread house of relief to your sinus congestion with this not-just-for-the-holidays tea.

2. Peppermint

Remember when your mom would rub Vick’s Vapo Rub into your chest when you had a cold so you could breathe? That’s menthol working its magic, and that’s the ingredient in peppermint that helps open those nasal passages and relieve congestion. Peppermint does many wonderful things, like soothe a sore throat, and it has a natural calming ability that comes in handy under any circumstance.

Some peppermint teas to keep on hand for allergy season:

  • Peppermint Herbal. One of our best sellers, this herbal tea is made of one perfect ingredient: peppermint. Are you a “go organic or go home” person? No worries, this sinus relief tea comes in organic as well.
  • Organic Green Tea with Organic Peppermint. We keep the organic train rollin’ with this green tea version of our peppermint tea. Since it’s not strictly herbal, it contains caffeine and a little kick from our Gunpowder Green base.
  • Mint Verbena. Lemon pairs up again with peppermint to come to your sinus’s rescue.

3. Chamomile

You already know that chamomile can help you get a good night’s sleep, but if your sinuses are congested, sleeping becomes more difficult. Fortunately, chamomile can help there too! It contains anti-inflammatory properties that can help open those nasal passages so you can breathe. Chamomile can also help relax your muscles as well as help with sinus headaches.

In addition to the teas listed above that contain chamomile, here are a few more sinus-sipping options:

  • Chamomile & Egyptian Chamomile. The names and packaging are different, but the contents are the same. Delicious and beautiful Egyptian chamomile flowers that make an amazing cup of sinus relief.
  • Yellow & Blue. Too pretty to be medicinal, this herbal blend is made of chamomile, lavender, and cornflowers.

4. Green Tea

What can’t green tea do? So far, it can’t create world peace or solve climate change, but it can do a lot to change your world. The Chinese knew long before we did that green tea is good for your health. When it comes to sinus relief, it can help reduce inflammation so those sinus cavities can stand down and be at ease.

When it comes to green teas, the options are too long to list individually. So, we invite you to choose your favorite green tea for sinus relief. Take that, fall allergy season!
