Sinus headaches can be downright debilitating but one way I found to help ease them (when I can find the time) is to make a hot compress dampened by water that I have added a few drops of lavender, chamomile or peppermint to in a small bowl. I alternate between two washcloths, using one while the other is soaking in the hot, scented water. You can also obtain extra heat by wringing the cloth out and microwaving it for about 10 seconds - but test it before applying to the face to avoid burns. The soothing aroma is very relaxing and the heat helps churn up circulation to help ease the pressure.
