Clear that stuffy nose!
Author Name: popmusicfan
Advantages: Easy to use
This is a useful way to relieve nasal congestion and a cheap way too! I only paid £1.48 for this nasal stick from my local Tesco.
The stick is great for carrying around with you as it is small and compact. It's also the right size as it's not too big for you nose. The stick is strong and durable and it smells really menthol and uplifting - just like the Olbas Oil. You can use this with the oil too - if you wish. I find this product easy and simple to use - you just stick it up your nose and breathe it in. I close one nostril at a time and use it in the other. The menthol really works to unblock your nasal passages and it helps you to breathe more easily. The nasal stick starts to work almost straight away and you can breathe again (in both nostrils) before you know it. The effect lasts for around half an hour before your nasal passages start to block themselves again. Of course you can use the stick again but it says on my packet that you can't use it more than three (or it may be four) times in one hour. So be careful not to over do it! It can sometimes become a bit of a habit using this. I find myself using it just for the sake of it - which is not good.
You can use this daily during your cold. It's NOT a painkiller and it doesn't contain any form of painkiller. It also lasts ages. I've had mine for a year and there's still loads left as I can hear the stick shaking in the container. It's great value as it's not messy to use. You don't need a bowl of hot water with it either.
A great way to clear stuffy noses and blocked heads.
Summary: A great product
