Pros of Saline Nasal Sprays

Saline nasal sprays can be smart alternatives to medicine as well as preventative. They are recommended by traditional doctors and naturopathic doctors because of their natural ingredients, and are safe for all ages. Saline sprays can help relieve congestion, allergies and sooth nasal passages.

  1. Congestion Relief

      Saline nasal spray can help clear congestion in babies, children, and adults. Because doctors discourage giving babies' cold medicine to relieve symptoms, they will recommend a saline nasal spray to relieve congestion instead, because it's natural. According to Lavender Essential Oils, saline sprays can help to "remove allergens, moisturize the nasal passages and maintain a healthy cilia function within the nasal passages."

      Saline nasal sprays are available in a isotonic solution which contains an equal salt concentration as the human body or a hypertonic solution which contains a higher level of salt.

    Safe and Natural

    • A nasal spray is a good alternative to medication, easy to use and effective, sometimes immediately. Because it's a natural spray, unlike over-the-counter medicines or other nasal sprays, it's benign and not addictive. You won't get a drowsy or doped-up feeling after using saline nasal spray like you would with a pill to relieve congestion and you can use it all day. You also won't have to worry about over dosing or having a reaction with other medicines you may be taking.

    Allergy Relief

    • Saline nasal spray can help to relieve allergies and the symptoms such as sinus pain, headaches, nasal obstruction and inflammation and you can avoid allergy medication. It can also help to kill a sinus infection. According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology, "Saline nasal sprays may help liquefy these secretions and decrease the risk of crusting in the sinus cavities."
