DIY Nasal Spray(s)

This week I am battling a sinus infection and making my own nasal sprays to help combat the bad bacteria. I figured I'd share! This does help bring down mucus/relieve sinus pressure but the main goal is to shorten the duration of infection or prevent infection period. 

I personally use the squeeze bottles from NeilMed but you can also order a glass nasal spray bottle to fill on Amazon.

My recipe:
8oz distilled water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 single drop of iodine
10 drops of fulvic acid
10 drops of food grade hydrogen peroxide

You don't need to use all of these, in fact you could just use salt water! Some people use collodiol silver,  I just don't keep this in house. 

Another thing I made that I'm sending to tier 3&4 patrons is a nasal oil. This is more for relief and is something I'll be using long after my infection is gone. Augustine and I are both so sensitive to dry winter weather and get nosebleeds often. We use humidifiers and it helps but I still find myself using oil and tallow in my nose to protect the mucus membranes. This oil has many benefits to the sinus tissues, mucus membranes and sinus cavity health. You can look up Nasya oil which is ayurvedic nasal oiling for some inspiration on ingredients but I used Chamomile, Calendula, Plantain, Yarrow & Gotu Kola infused into organic Olive Oil. Start with a few drops and increase to a full dropper if it feels good!
