A stuffy or clogged nose is really annoying. You are unable to breathe freely and feel restless. Your nose becomes clogged due to inflamed blood vessels in the lining of the nostrils, often due to sinus infection, cold, flu and allergies. The excess mucus buildup in the nose makes it difficult to breath. Complete relief from stuffy nose cannot be achieved until the underlying infection goes away because your immune system produces mucus to trap and kill the virus. Soothing the inflamed nasal membranes can help to clear the stuffy nose. Over the counter nasal sprays can bring relief but they are very addictive and after some time become less effective. Here are eight effective home remedies for opening up the stuffy nose and getting relief.
