As summer gives way to fall, a couple of things will hold true as they do every year: 1. Your girlfriend will harass you to drive to the country to see the leaves turn colors, and 2. Your sinuses will act up as a result of a cold and/or the flu and/or an allergic reaction to the leaves you drove two grueling hours for your girlfriend to see.
If you’re like most guys, you’d have to be stricken with the Ebola virus before you’d take any medication. Cold medicine was developed for girlfriends, not us.
So what do you do if your sinuses are blocked up and you need some quick relief? Reach for Aromaremedy’s Sinus Help(R). This small, sinus-clearing bag is filled with beads infused with all-natural essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint, and lemongrass.
Just hold it up to your nose, inhale the soothing vapors, and feel your head clear. No dosing, no groggy side effects, no dangers. You can use it all day. And it stashes in a coat pocket or briefcase.
$6 for a two pack. Each bag lasts about a month. Available at CVS.
