Nasal Spray

If the following recipe feels too strong, then dilute more. Be sure to shake the bottle well each time since the essential oil will float. We do not recommend using essential oils in a plastic spray bottle, as essential oils dissolve plastics.

Hydrogen Peroxide Nasal Spray
1 TB 3% Hydrogen Peroxide - make sure to use 3%
1 TB Distilled Water

Homemade Recipe
1 quart glass jar
1 quart boiled tap or bottled water; boil 15 minutes to eliminate any amoebas (not tap water)
2-3 heaping TB non-iodized salt (iodine may interfere with cilia function)
1 rounded tsp baking soda

Wash, rinse and fill jar with boiled water
Add salt and baking soda
Stir or Shake before each use
Store in refrigerator - mix a fresh batch weekly

If this mixture is too strong, reduce salt to 1-2 tsp
Xylitol can be added to help fight bacterial infection (see next recipe)

Xylitol Nasal Spray
1 cup warm boiled or bottled water; boiled 15 minutes to eliminate amoebas (not tap water)
1 tsp non-iodized salt
1/2 cup Xylitol
Mix until salt and xylitol are dissolved
Use at room temperature

Hydrosol Spray
1 TB Rosemary or Lavender Hydrosol
1 tsp Fine, Pink Himalayan salt - dissolved 
Add to 1 cup of warm, distilled water (or boiled then cooled to "warm" water) in a neti pot or nasal sprayer and use as directed.  If using a vaporizer, use 1 ml of hydrosol.

1. Confession time…I got myself addicted to Afrin nose spray. I know…I know. I was desperate. I am days away from delivering a baby, and I have 4 small children--I needed to be able to breathe!! Lung Healing, Respiratory Relief, Bacteria Top Gun, etc.…all of the usuals were "working" but not providing the immediate relief of just a couple of sprays of Afrin. I knew it was wrong, but once I got started, "just one day" turned into a week! Well, yesterday was "D-Day"--I was done! So, I followed the instructions on the Nasal Sprayer page of HEO--specifically the Hydrogen Peroxide Spray followed by the EO Nasal Spray (I used 5 drops of Eu. Radiata, 5 drops of Lavender and 1 drop of Peppermint--and it took my breath away!). Well, I am breathing very clearly on my own this morning. NO ISSUES!!! I will continue for a few more days and then will probably move toward a homemade saline spray, but thanks be to God for HEOs and Linda's wisdom on the website!!! - Christy

2. This is a recipe I used with good success:
1/2 oz Recipe
A few drops of a mild essential oil such as Myrtle or Lavender (my husband adds a smidgen of Peppermint, which can sting, so beware)
[HEO's comment: Hydrosols are preferred over essential oils]
1 TB water filtered and boiled 15 minutes to eliminate any amoebas (not tap water)
Shake well ~ two sprays into each nostril
Avoid blowing the nose of at least 5 minutes, and then blow very gently
