Sign me up.

The folks at Similasan recently sent their Nasal Allergy Relief my way.  Its homeopathic mist is supposed to help runny noses, sneezing and other allergy-related annoyances.  Sign me up.  I hadn’t used it before, but I like that it is a chemical and preservative free, all-natural mist. It works by stimulating the body’s natural ability to relieve nasal allergy symptoms which means that I don't have to worry about any rebound effects or reliance.
The most exciting was that my post nasal drip was no longer bothering me! I won't go into details, but if you've had a post nasal drip, you know what I'm talking about here. Hooray!!!I used the mist twice a day for six days and absolutely felt a huge relief of my allergy symptoms. I'm going to start using the mist once a day now to see how that works, and have already checked that my local Walgreens does carry it (at an affordable price!) so I can get more whenever I need it. Now I'm starting to love spring!  
The nice folks at Similasan sent me some to try out and since the day I have received it, I have had it at my desk, which I spend my morning, part afternoon, and little of my evenings at. I figured that way, I will remember to actually use it. I have faithfully, as recommend 1-3 times daily in each nostril. I have noticed within a week, my headaches have subsided, not nearly the itchy eyes I had, less congestion, and breathing through my nose again has been lovely!

There is no funky taste!

I was sent some Similasan Nasal Allergy Relief mist and have been using now it for a week, and I have seen such an improvement in my ability to actually breathe out my nose. I haven't had a nosebleed since I started using the Similasan nasal mist and it is actually draining, I have regained my sense of smell. I also feel super confident shooting it up my nose, and there is no funky taste.

I really can't express how much more peaceful and relaxing a clean home is.

The next morning I got proactive and used the Similasan before leaving the hotel. A good thing about using something that is all natural (and chemical and preservative free) is I didn't have to worry about a rebound effect. There isn't a moment where BOOM the stuff wears off, and I am a disaster.
Because I'm allergic to numerous other things besides pollen, I first tested a bit of the product out on my face, which is tends to be really sensitive. It passed that test with flying colors! Similasan's spray is apparently one of the only medicated, preservative free nasal decongestants for nasal allergies that you can buy, so I'm sure that helped.  

It's cleared for infant use!

Fortunately, Similasan has an herbal scent and taste that is not at all off-putting. It's kind of refreshing, actually. But here's the beauty of Similasan Nasal Allergy Relief: it makes me stop sneezing so much that whole nightmarish cycle never even begins. That's a win-win situation right there! It manages my symptoms so well that I don't need that other nasal spray. 
I'm a big fan of homeopathic remedies. I would much rather deal with something naturally than with unneeded medication and chemicals, so when I was asked to try Similasan Nasal Allergy Relief nasal mist I jumped at the chance! I was sent some to try out and I've really been pleased with the results of this product. The mist helps alleviate the symptoms of spring allergies, all while doing so with a natural twist.

This year we are trying a new product, and we are super excited about it. We are trying Similasan Homeopathic Nasal Allergy Relief. I love the fact that it's an over-the-counter nasal mist. I have tried nasal sprays in the past and they have worked, but I have always needed a prescription from the doctor. I've tried Similasan's nasal mist a few times now, and I think it's pretty awesome!

This year is different!

I work through all of the fun spring preparation things like clearing the debris from the garden, moving a few plants, mulching, edging, pruning, and taking the containers out of the garage. About halfway through, the misery sets in. I completely block out all intelligent thought and just keep on suffering. It's not until the congestion starts to clear on its own that it occurs to me OH, HAI. SEASONAL ALLERGIES. CAN FIX THAT.
I'm especially careful with what I give the boys, seeing as how their young bodies are more prone to react adversely to medications. Poor M2, though, has the worst allergies during pollen season and they kicked into full force this past weekend. I hate to give him anything that will make him loopy or drowsy, nor do I want him to be using something he could become addicted too. I had an aunt one time who couldn’t go a day without her nasal spray.
 I've recently decided to try using natural remedies as much at possible for myself and my family to keep rebound effects and reliance to a minimum. I'd rather stimulate my body's natural abilities to relieve symptoms - especially those associated with my allergies and chronic rhinitis. So the fact that Similasan's nasal mist is all natural and chemical and preservative free (in fact it's one of the only available nasal decongestant sprays that is preservative free) really appealed to me.
What fun is making all of this cute handmade clothing if I am not there to see my kids running around in it outside?!! So when the nice weather hit this past weekend, I was prepared... I was surprised at how well Similasan Nasal Allergy Relief was able to reduce my allergy symptoms.  Having had sinus pressure for what feels like weeks now, it was so nice to finally have some relief from that headache.  The runny nose and sneezing practically disappeared!
This past week I had a horrible sinus infection and bronchitis and Similasan Nasal Allergy Relief was one of the first things I started on. It makes such a noticeable difference in my sinus drainage! This is definitely a product that I can rely on throughout the horrible allergy seasons...which for me means fall, spring and summer, haha!
