So this blue bottle of nasal spray has been sitting on the counter at Clifton Natural Foods for probably a couple of years. I always think it looks right, but haven’t bought it. But with Cincinnati sinuses and with son Brian’s cats living downstairs until just recently, I was thinking about a neti pot and other nose solutions. But I knew using a neti pot, while great, was going to be, at least initially, more work just to learn than I was likely to put in.
So, finally, I bought a spray bottle of Xlear, which says ‘soothing and moisturizing saline nasal spray with Xylitol.’ Which is a natural sugar.
The stuff is great, as I knew it would be the first time I looked at it. Should have picked one up two years ago. Might have been a case of overthinking,general busy-ness, my usual aversion to anything that looks like medicine – even though this is pretty natural (water, saline, xylitol and grapefruit seed extract). Whatever.
I’m certainly glad I managed to get over whatever it was, and buy the stuff. Sure works for me.
