Pleasant to use, and effective

I've used this product for over a year now after reading how saline nasal sprays/rinses can help prevent viral colonization which leads to colds and flu. I've used it consistently during some serious exposures with good results. Now Foods Activated Nasal Mist is my favorite because it's pleasant and gentle. The herbs balance out the harshness of the saline. If I forget to use it and get a cold, it helps keep my nasal passages open so I can breathe, especially at night. I always carry one in my purse to use after trips to the store, doctor, etc.

I was so happy to find this fragranced oil again. It's a blast from the past for me. I first discovered it in the mid 1970's. The quality is the same now as it was back then. A little goes a long way.
One of our favs... Caution for Diabetics

These are great-tasting mints. The Xylitol is an alcohol sugar which is processed by the liver and causes no increase in insulin levels, an important issue for pre-Type 2 diabetics (Insulin Resistance/Metabolic Syndrome/Syndrome X). There are conflicting studies about whether Sugar alcohols raise blood sugar in some individuals; so diabetics beware and monitor your sugars carefully when using sugar alcohols such as Xylitol, Sorbitol, Mannitol, Maltitol, etc.
Works great, but having trouble tolerating the fragrance

This product works, and a very little goes a long way! Unfortunately, I can't stand the fragrance while I am applying it. For some reason it just makes me feel ill when I smell it. Once I am dressed it is no problem. Sure wish NOW would hold the fragrance on this one! My husband won't even try it.
