This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in January of 2019. If you have sinus problems, you probably know how much of a pain dry air can be. Whether it's a harsh Nor'easter or the Santa Ana Winds, a dry spell can turn breathing into an endurance sport. Luckily, with a good humidifier, you can soothe your aching sinuses, along with cracked lips and parched throats. Some models even allow you to add essential oils for a pleasant dose of aromatherapy.

Editor's Notes

January 31, 2019:

I made sure to find some models that can effectively humidify large rooms, as well as smaller ones that are more portable, especially since office buildings and hotel rooms are often heavily air-conditioned, which can affect sinus troubles. There's also a mix of evaporative humidifiers (which don't over-humidify rooms or leave white mineral deposits) and ultrasonic models (which provide continuous humidification). All of these products need to be cleaned regularly to prevent buildup of mold and bacteria, so please keep maintenance in mind when making your choice.
