3. Steam

A cool mist humidifier is super helpful when it comes to relieving those stuffed up heads. Some room humidifiers have a special compartment for essential oils. If yours does, try adding a few drops of menthol or eucalyptus oil to really help clear up sinuses and stop infections.

Depending on the age of your child, you could run a hot, steamy shower or bath and either bath with your child or just sit in a chair and let them breathe in the steam. Again, a few drops of eucalyptus, menthol, or peppermint oil in the water really helps clear up a stuffy head.
