Cold and flu season will be here in a blink of an eye. Sigh! Cold and flu seasons means body aches, sore throat, and nasal congestion.

At-Home Nasal Spray Recipe

Some of us don’t have the energy to go to the store solely to buy a nasal spray. So, here is an at-home nasal spray recipe you can make in the convenience from your kitchen that will save you a trip and some money.

 

 

  • 1 nasal aspirator
  • A cup of distilled water
  • 1 teaspoon of iodine free salt
  • A drop of Eucalyptus oil (optional)
  • 3 teaspoons of Morning Pep Xylitol

 

 

I added a small amount of eucalyptus oil as it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that helps sooth inflamed nostrils and open the airways.

I also added some xylitol because it’s a moisturizing and cleansing agent. Studies have shown that Xylitol helps reduce the ability of harmful bacteria to adhere to the cells in the nose and even stimulates our own defensive washing of the nose. Who knew xylitol has other benefits aside from being a natural, low calorie sweetener. The Xylitol I use is the Morning Pep Pure Birch Xylitol. I particularly like this one because it’s made 100% from real birch (not corn), and made in the USA.

 

*Xylitol is toxic to dogs. It is crucial to store xylitol in a safe place, just as you would with grapes, raisins, avocados, and chocolate.
