  • Pharmaceutical Grace Sesame Oil can help in cases of extreme dryness and crusts.
  • Sleeping with a cool mist humidifier.  Humidifiers are great if you are in a dry place or during winter. Get a humidity monitor and aim for around 40% – over 45% promotes mold, which is pretty much a universal allergen. Humidifiers without replaceable filters are best, as the filters get moldy fast.
  • Warm air humidifiers.  These should be cleaned regularly with vinegar and a bit of bleach.
  • Steam Steam helped me somewhat during the dry days of winter. If I felt dry after irrigating but wanted to be able to sleep soon, and not have to drip from irrigation again, I’d put my head over the hot pot or shower.
  • A personal steam inhaler by Vicks or Mabis can be used to add moisture.  Many steam inhalers allow for added saline or even menthol.
  • Ponaris Nasal Emollient has been helpful for those with exceptionally dry noses, and has been formulated for atrophic rhinitis.
  • Nozoil.
  • TNS Recovery Complex is the only product containing a professional concentration of patented NouriCel-MD. NouriCel-MD contains an array of natural human growth factors, proteins, amino acids, antioxidants, and soluble collagens.  Applied topically to the turbinates using a q-tip.  This product supposedly stimulates tissue repair and growth.
  • Ayr Saline Nasal Gel
  • Saline Nasal Spray.  Try to avoid saline sprays that contain preservatives (benzalkonium chloride).
  • Grossans Breathe-ease Xl:  NO preservatives at all. Really good if you don’t mind mixing yourself.  This is on the pricier side.
  • Xclear contains purified saline, Xylitol and grapeseed extract.  This product has been ranked as very effective and long-lasting.  The formula has no scent and feels soothing.
