Slightly warm the oil by placing the bottle in warm water for several minutes. Avoid using hot water as it can crack the glass bottle and overheat the oil.
Lie down and tilt the head back slightly. Apply 1-5 drops of the oil into each nostril. Take a large inhale through each nostril. Keep the head back for 2-3 minutes, letting the oil penetrate into the sinus cavity. Avoid going out into extreme cold weather for at least an hour after application.
