Product Review: Nasal Decongestant By Sages Aromatherapy
Today I am going to be talking to you about one of my favorite products. This is a holistic and natural herbal remedy that works great. I’ve tried many different products to help with my congestion and other issues. None of them have worked as well as this one balm. Sages Aromatherapy knew what they were doing when they started to create this blend.
This year has been terrible for allergies for everyone. Its been worse for people like me who suffer from asthma as well. So I’m always a bit wheezy and stuffy from my asthma and general environmental allergies. My allergies and congestion are so bad at times that I end up feeling like I am going to puke in the morning in order to get rid of everything that slipped down in the night.
To be honest the only thing that ever actually helped me get rid of phlegm and congestion before was the max dose of Mucinex. And I’d have to take it everyday when they even recommend not taking it more than 7 days without seeing doctors. I would mention it to my Doctors and nothing would help and they continued to say if the mucinex works just keep working with it. Not only is the stuff expensive but it can also taste terrible if it gets stuck on the tongue while you try and swallow the large pills. I grew really tiered of taking it twice a day to just be able to breathe and live without feeling physically ill every morning.
Hot shower before bed were one thing I tried but with post nasal drip it just seemed to give the nasal passages more phlem for the following morning. In the middle of the winter I started to try working with Eucalyptus oil alone and that helped quite a bit but it still felt like there had to be something better out there that was natural like Eucalyptus oil that I could use and have it be more effective. The Eucalyptus oil helped me be able to breathe at night but there was still phlem in the morning, breathable and non ill feeling phlem but it was still there.
Now a few months ago I was gathering raffle items for the Maine Pagan Unity Day in Portland Maine. Many members of the Pagan Business Network sent items to be sold at the raffle for a fundraiser for Maine Pagan Unity Day. As I was gathering several items together I personally snagged a few items from various providers that I personally was attracted to and wanted to give a chance. This Nasal Decongestant was one of the few small items I grabbed for myself. And I am so glad that I did.
I applied I little to my chest only at night for a week and the results were amazing. Not only could I breathe but I didn’t feel like there was any phlem there. I coughed a little in the morning but there was no phlem. No sounds of gurgling and not sounds of hacking. I actually felt healthy and like I was normal. A week later I added the balm to my feet as the jar suggested and I couldn’t believe how much it helped me. I felt like I was a different person. It seemed as it there were no barriers to my breathing at all.
The more I used this item the less I seemed to need my controller inhaler and my rescue inhaler. In fact most days now unless its extremely humid I really only seem to need my controller just in the morning. Even my use of the rescue/exercise inhaler has dropped substantially. Unless I am going to be doing a lot of physical work (exercise or vacuuming the CVS I work at) I really dont need either of them in my day to day life. I am not advocating to stop using inhalers if you use them. Far from it. Mine are still essential to my life, I just relay on them maybe once a day instead of 4-5 times a day.
The last few weeks allergies have been dull and down so I have not used them as much as I have in the past. However in the next few weeks fall allergies will be all over. So I know I will be using this balm for myself again. I don’t leave home without it. Its in my daily meds and first aid I carry with me everywhere. Just knowing that I can use the balm if and when I need it is an amazing relief. And it feels relaxing when you put it on too!
