ACV is a safe and time-tested remedy, having been used in medicine for over 2000 years. Vinegar has antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties that work together to fight the cause of your sinus pain.

You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of ACV
  • 8 oz. of boiled water

Vinegar Steam

Steam helps thin and loosen mucus to clear your airway and makes it easier for you to breathe. The steam also moisturizes and soothes swollen sinus tissue. Combined with the anti-inflammatory properties of ACV, this steam treatment is the perfect non-invasive treatment for instant relief.

You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • ½ cup of water
  • ½ cup of ACV
  • A towel
  • A small saucepan


Here’s what you need to do: just mix the ingredients in a saucepan and heat until it gets steamy. Pour the water into a large bowl. How to use it: lean your face over the bowl and place towel over your head. This will keep the steam around your head and relieve your symptoms.

Sweet ACV

According to the experts, viruses cause 90 – 98% of acute sinusitis cases. But, you should also know that bacterial and fungal infection may also cause the condition. ACV is very useful against this problem, but when it’s combined with honey – it’s even more effective. Honey boosts the immune system to fight off infection and promote the healing of sore and inflamed nasal and sinus tissue…


You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
