14 Natural Treatments to Unstuff Your Nose and Breathe Better

I've personally tested this Pillow. I use it Every Night in fact.

14 treatments to naturally clear a stuffy nose.

14 treatments to naturally clear a stuffy nose.

Just this morning, I woke up and found I couldn't breathe out of my left nostril. When I get a stuffy nose, I want to clear it ASAP and move on with what I have to do that day—which is why I've found and tested several home remedies for nasal congestion throughout the years because taking medication is not my first course of action. All of these remedies will help clear out your nasal passageways. Not only will you be able to breathe better, but you will also be clear-headed so that you can have a productive day ahead.

ways-to-unclog-your-nose

1. Use a Neti Pot to Relieve Nasal Congestion

According to Dr. Elizabeth Trattner, "One of the simplest things a patient can do is a nasal lavage. This can be performed with a neti pot that is purchased over the counter at drugstores. You can even make your own at home by using a mixture of 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of baking soda to 1 pint of distilled water. This should be done twice a day in the morning and in the evening right before bedtime. A nasal lavage helps clear the cilia of the inside of the nose of pollen, micro-particles, and mucus. This practice has been performed for thousands of years and it is quite effective and very inexpensive."

I personally prefer the neti pot to gargling salt as it is the most effective way of clearing your sinuses. Simply fill the neti pot with salt water and pour it into one nostril while tilting your head to the opposite side. These neti pots come with "saline solution," that you pour into water to use in your pot. However, "saline solution" is another word for salt, so once you run out of the solution, you can simply mix your own salt solution.

Salt water can help unclog your nose.

2. Use a Saline Spray to Clear a Blocked Nose

To make a saline spray, simply mix 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and a pint of distilled or pre-boiled water. You can buy a nasal spray bottle at the drugstore and fill it up with your homemade saline solution. Then simply spray your nose a few times a day to restore moisture to dry nasal passages and thin the mucus that is preventing you from breathing.

You can also do a salt-water nose gargle. Just fill up a small cup with warm water and a pinch of salt. Close one nostril and snort the salt water with the other nostril. Then simply blow your nose. Of course, this technique is very difficult to use on little ones. As the mother of a two-year-old, I know how often children's noses can get stuffed, but their noses are so small that it's hard to clear them out.

Note: Dr. Elliott, MD, a board-certified allergist and internist warns against using tap or bottled water to make a salt water rinse. She says, "It’s fine to gargle with warm salt water when you have a sore throat, but you never want to put that up your nose. There is bacteria in both tap and even bottled water that can make your infection worse. If you want to make your own rinse, be sure that the water is pre-boiled, or better yet, buy distilled water from the pharmacy. That way you know you are not introducing any unwanted materials into you body."

3. Inhale Eucalyptus Oil to Unclog Nasal Passages

Eucalyptus oil increases the number of phagocytes cells that destroy bacteria, increases circulation in the body, expels phlegm, and decongests the nasal passageways. It helps unclog your nose instantly. You can use eucalyptus oil in three ways:

Inhale It Over a Bowl of Hot Water

Pour a few drops into a pan or bowl of steaming hot water. Take a towel and cover your head over the pot so that you create your own mini spa. Inhale the steam. Just be careful not to get your face too close to the pot because the steam can get quite hot and boiling water can splash. Start with your face over a foot away from the water, and adjust accordingly.

Pour a Few Drops on Your Pillow Before Bed

Sprinkle a few drops on your pillow so you can inhale it while you sleep.

Use a Handkerchief

Put a few drops of eucalyptus oil onto a handkerchief, and sniff it throughout the day.

4. Eat a Clove of Raw Garlic When You Think a Cold Is Starting

Based on my experience, this is the most effective for not only clearing my stuffy nose but also getting rid of my cold. Dr. Tania Elliott, MD says, "Garlic is a natural immune booster." It is an extremely potent anti-bacterial food, and when cut, it produces a chemical called allicin, which helps thin the mucus blocking your passageways.

Just take a clove of garlic and slice it into pieces small enough to swallow. Then just swallow it with some water like you would a normal pill. Drink some warm water after to help with digestion.

A steaming hot shower can help clear your sinuses.

5. Take a Hot Shower or Inhale Steam for Sinus Relief

The steam from a hot shower will help clear out your nose by thinning mucus and restoring moisture to inflamed mucus membranes in your nostrils. While this clearing effect is temporary, it can still help remove blockages in your nasal passageways.

Drinking water is such an easy thing to do. Keep your body hydrated.

6. Drink Warm Water or Hot Tea (Peppermint or Ginger)

One of the reasons your nose is stuffy is because of mucous buildup. Drinking ample water helps to thin out this mucus and drain it, which is why it is always the standard advice given by doctors to patients with sinuses.

Warm water or tea is even better because the heat will loosen up the mucus and help you breathe better. Herbal teas like peppermint or ginger tea are great choices for clearing your nasal passageways. The menthol in peppermint breaks up phlegm and relieves sinuses and headaches, and ginger has high anti-inflammatory properties that instantly relieve congestion.

Spicy foods can help unblock a stuffy nose.

7. Eat Spicy Foods to Thin Mucus

Spicy foods will often help drain the nose. Like the effect of steam, this effect may only be temporary but will help lead to more lasting results. We make Indian food everyday, so I can easily add a Serrano chili or cayenne pepper to make something extra spicy. Mustard oil or wasabi are also great for giving that instant clearing effect.

Try adding chilis to your cooking. If that's too much effort, you can easily order spicy Indian or Vietnamese dishes.

Lying to one side can help relieve a stuffy nose.

8. Lie on the Side That Is Unstuffed or Less Clogged

If you want to clear nasal congestion at night and help relieve the pressure on the more stuffed side of your face, try lying on the side that is less stuffed. This works especially well after nose gargling salt water or using a neti pot.

Massaging your sinuses can help them drain.

9. Massage Your Sinuses

Massaging your sinuses can help to break up the congestion. It works, just like any massage, by loosening things up.

Below is a video that walks you through exactly how to drain your sinuses using massage and pressure points.

Cutting an onion can help relieve sinuses.

10. Cut an Onion to Clear a Blocked Nose

Dr. Tania Elliott, MD explains, "Raw onion is great for boosting the immune system!" This morning, an item on my to-do list was to make sauce that required onions. Cutting onions up instantly unstuffed my nose. The strong smell not only made me cry but also helped open up my nostrils.

11. Use a Humidifier While You Sleep to Add Moisture to the Air

We do this in our Connecticut home during the wintertime. A humidifier instantly puts moisture into the air, increasing the humidity (hence the name). Like drinking a glass of water, using a humidifier can help thin out the mucus in your nose and sinus areas, allowing you to breathe better and sleep more restfully.

ways-to-unclog-your-nose

12. Use Warm Compress on Forehead

To relieve sinus pressure, place a warm compress on your forehead and nose. The warmth from the compress will clear up mucus that is built up in the mucus membranes located throughout your neck, temples, forehead, and nose.

Chicken soup

13. Eat Chicken Soup to Get Rid of Sinuses

Dr. Elliott, MD explains that "Chicken soup can help fight infection. Studies show it boosts neutrophil production—a key component of the immune system needed to fight bacteria." This is because chicken soup is chock full of potent herbs and spices (onions, celery, and pepper) that stimulate nasal clearance. It is also full of protein, which strengthens your immune system and helps your body fight cold symptoms, such as congestion and fatigue.

14. Drink Some Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix some apple cider vinegar with water and honey, and drink up for better breathing. Apple cider vinegar contains potassium, which thins mucus. It is also abundant in vitamin C, which gives your immune system that extra boost for fighting off the common cold.

How to Sleep With a Stuffy Nose

  1. Prop your head up to help drain the mucus. You can do this by using two or more pillows to keep your head elevated.
  2. Spray your nose with a saline spray before bed. The blast moisture of moisture does wonders for decongestion.
  3. Use a humidifier or diffuser in your room to ensure that your nasal passages are moist all through the night. Adding a few drops of eucalyptus oil in would be even better. The menthol in eucalyptus is antibacterial and helps open blocked mucus membranes.
  4. Rub your chest with eucalyptus oil of Vick's vapor oil. Again, the menthol heals with decongestion.

Please Share Your Tips and Experiences Getting Rid of Stuffy Noses

Ashley Bergin from san francisco on October 26, 2018:

Excellent advice! For the last few years, I’ve sworn by #4 (garlic) #7 (spicy foods) and #14 (Apple Cider Vinegar). These work especially well if you have a sore throat in combination with the stuffy nose, and they really do help the cold go away faster. Before discovering those remedies, a common cold would usually last a full 5 days with raging symptoms. But if I use those techniques, I’ll normally have 1 day of severe congestion and sore throat – and will feel at least 50% better by the next day.

Lily on September 18, 2018:

Yes!! I always get stuffy noses and I hate them. I’ve found the lying on the unblocked side trick a long long time ago by experience. It always works for me.

Yesterday I woke up with a terribly sore throat but as I got through the day every hour that passed by my throat got better little by little. When I woke up today I had a stuffy nose and as I got through the day it's just gotten worse. I will try to use these methods but nothing has worked so far, and since I can only breathe through my mouth my throat is getting dry and it's hurting more. Thank you for your kindness but...please help me!!!

Lynn C. on February 06, 2018:

The onion worked remarably well. I may try some wasabi powder or paste (add water to powder & mix) later.

My doctor, a senior MD at a well-known clinic in Silicon Valley, does not advocate neti pots. He said the climate in the nose is delicately balanced. Sticking foreign bodies (objects, even a finger: yuck!) into the nasal passages can cause or aggravate problems by introducing germs. Makes sense. They see complications from neti pots & continual use of sprays & inhalers.

A big whiff of a freshly cut strong onion should make the remainder of this nasty flu-like cold more bearable. Thank you.

NICOLE on February 03, 2018:

I had a stuffy nose for 3 days. I am 19w pregnant so meds are very limited. Last night, I searched & searched for remedies. I found this site (about the 8th site searched) and decided to do the nose massage. Omg!!!!! Initially I didn't feel a lot different. I did the massage twice and then lined my nose with Vicks Vaporub. I woke up 3 hours later with FULL CLEARANCE!! I was so thankful for the proper breathe of life, I could not stop smiling & thanking God for the creation of a nose!! Breathing primarily thru the mouth was such a horrible experience. I never post on sites but I just had to share this.

Wilhelm Boots on February 02, 2018:

Kay W. - Depending on whether or not you have insurance to cover it, the best "remedy" to your particular situation is to get that deviated septum surgically corrected. I inherited one of those through my mother's side of the genetic code, as did my older brother, as well as our mother herself. Only my brother has had a chance to get it corrected; our mom lived with hers til she died, and mine becomes more and more problematic the older I get (but so do the risks associated with the surgery).

I can't tell you my name on January 28, 2018:

This article really helped me! Thanks so much

The one that says lie on the side that is unstuffed or less clogged it doesn’t make your nose unclogged it just switch to the other side of your nose

Libby Johnson on January 16, 2018:

Also if you don’t have a Neti Pot but have botttles of water take one of those water bottles fill it up half ay with water put the lid back on cut a circular hole on the bottle of the bottle put bottle to nose and squeeze. It works just like a Neti pot just take away the citrus flavor.

J anomounus on January 13, 2018:

Emma on January 08, 2018:

I find that sitting up strate helps for a while then gets stuffed again help me please!

Dena on December 29, 2017:

My nose just won't unstuff

Jewels from Australia on December 24, 2017:

I don't use a neti pot, instead, use a bowl as I can do both nostrils at the same time. This ensures you are not unblocking one and blocking the other. I wrote a hub on this technique with illustrations. Hope it helps your readers.

Dawn on December 11, 2017:

True, if you lay on the side that isn't stuffed, it is just gonna move to the clear side!!! Your still gonna have a stuffed nose!

Owen on December 09, 2017:

I swear when I sleep so that my clogged nostril is in above my other one the mucus just seems to move from one nostril to the other and I have to constantly switch sides. Tough to sleep like that,

Someone on December 08, 2017:

Laying on the side that isn't stuffed really work and I'm littary shocked that it worked so well!

Maurice Glaude from Mobile, AL on November 20, 2017:

I always start up my humidifier and put essential oils for a pleasant smell or use specific ones for my symptoms if I have any when the weather begins to get dryer, to prevent a cold. I never heard of using mouthwash at the first sign of a cold though. I normally just gargle with salt water because it's cleansing and healing. Mouthwash is easier to have on hand and convenient.

Aisha Muhdhar on September 02, 2017:

I've noticed that using anything minty helps clear your nose. It can be mint gum, a peppermint, or my own personal favorite, mint tea. Just make sure that the mint flavor of whatever you decide to use is strong. I prefer mint tea cause just the smell of it usually clears up my nose. It also helps soothe headaches.

Lillei on September 02, 2017:

So, I found that the hot water and glass of water works the best, thx for the advice!

madison on August 14, 2017:

I am 11 years old and everyday I have to use nasal spray.

I found out that I damaged my nose so I'm looking for a better way to get rid of my allergy.

Nizamuddin on August 11, 2017:

I heard that breathing from one side of your nose, remember that it’s a natural, automatic system working to keep you ‎smelling properly, and to make sure your nose doesn’t get dried out by a constant onslaught of dirty air. ‎

Xiomara on February 08, 2017:

I can't even start on how long I have had this stuffy nose. At night it is the worst and the only way to breath through my mouth which then in the morning gives me a sore throat. I tried the Nettie pot and it worked wonders just like you said!!! I have to admit that is was a little scary because I never used one before. Anyway i just wanted to say thank you so much for making this page.

OW4L on January 18, 2017:

I have both my nostrils stuffed up but only when I change my body posision, if I stay still it clears. who can I get it clear? When I blow my nose it just gets worse...

Dave on January 09, 2017:

What works for me is twist some tissue up at the corner, then push it in and out of my nose as far as it will go. Eventually it will make me sneeze and the stuffed nose become runny.

It works on January 05, 2017:

Ok so I stuck my finger in my nose and I just shook it. It cleared up about half of the clogged side.

pleeeease on December 27, 2016:

I am 12 have blocked nose for a nearly 2 days and when I lay down it makes my noes blocked and when I stand it's unboxed I think I have a cold when I have a runny nose a tickle cough

Lofa on August 31, 2016:

breath in 3 times and on the out hale pinch your nose hold your breath as long as you can do it atleast 5 times If that doesn 't work take a shower it will unclog your nose for about 30 min Do 10 push ups Nasal Strips Drink alot's of fluids Eat spicy foods Like Red peppers Anything hot in your house Take any kind of allergy medicine Nasal Spray

The best thing you can do is go to your nearest Store and ask for Nasal strips put them on your cheeks it should clear up in 1 min if it doesn't wait 10 min then you should be cleared for the reast of the day

matt meister on August 22, 2016:

what i do is a put bit of salt in your nose it reallly helps

Mimi on August 12, 2016:

I have stuffed nose all the time due to allergy and mild deviated septum . What helps me is ocean saline nasal spray - use it 3 or more times daily . It's purely natural so there is no rebound affect ! It was recommended by ENT Doctor ! I also put real hot water in a bowl , soak a wash cloth and put it over the bridge of my nose on my face . Do this several times to loosen the blockage up . At night I use Vicks waterless vaporizer and mine came with 5 menthol vapors pads- using all those works wonders for me . Hope this helps someone !

Rose on July 23, 2016:

Some ways to rid your stuffy nose and cough are to drink lemon tea with honey, the honey is a natural cough suppressant and sleep aid while lemon helps fight respiratory problems, take a hot shower and near the end slowly remove the hot water until it's a nice cool shower, both hot and cold showers had different perks to make your body more healthy! Also don't forget to frequently wash your hands, so you don't keep spreading germs everywhere. Vapourizing Ointment also helps if you just spread it on your chest, throat, and on your upper lip and around the holes of your nose to not only help clear your nasal but also help sooth the raw skin around your nose that you might get after blowing your nose a lot, which is something you should do, don't sniff it in because that just it makes the problem worse. I hope you guys get better soon!

Lucy Buehler on January 08, 2016:

Drink one of them lemon cold and flu drink stuff they only cost about 1 dollar in the pharmacys amd believe me they work miracles if you take a sachet every 4 hours and theres about 4 or 5 sachets in 1 box so trust me if you have a stuffy nose then buy this
