Aloe Nasal Spray

Has anyone had any luck with Aloe Nasal spray? I've only read about it, I don't even know where to start.

Aloe is a great plant, but I haven't tried putting any up my nose.

We have a bunch of aloes kicking around the house and I sometimes break off a piece for instant relief of skin issues. Given my experience with that plant, I wouldn't hesitate to try that spray. Just snort a little shot and see if it helps.

I'd do it.

Never heard of using aloe but it might work. This (neti pots) does work and before I "tried" something new up my nose I'd want one of these nearby in case I needed to flush it out.

I use a neti pot daily, it helps but I'm still having issues.

I used to be hooked on Otrivin and Dristan.

I always had plugged sinuses.

About 6 years ago I stopped using that stuff and after a few days all my sinus problems were gone and I've been fine ever since.

My first year in OR was allergy free. My second was a Mack truck sucker punch. Now I take pills.

So no problems at all then?

I don't know if I stopped using nasal spray because my allergies went away or vice versa, but I haven't had a problem with my sinuses in years. It's really weird because I used to always be totally stuffed up

My dad had a rhinoplasty to fix his problem and it didn't look very pleasant and hurt like hell. That was probably about 10 or more years ago and it seems to have worked out well for him in the long run.
