Harnessing the natural power of herbal extracts and essential oils, the Alkalol family of products has been providing soothing relief from nasal congestion caused by colds, flu, and allergies since 1896.


Herbal extracts and essential oils have played an important role in healing for centuries. Alkalol Nasal Wash – originally formulated in 1896 – was the first nasal rinse to use natural extracts and essential oils to help dissolve mucus, clean, and moisturize nasal passages without employing a high percentage of alcohol or other harsh additives.

Those same handpicked natural extracts and essential oils can now be found in our Alkalol Saline Nasal Spray. Whether you suffer from colds, flu, or allergies, Alkalol has a solution for you.


According to the Journal of Family Practice, “Daily hypertonic saline nasal irrigation improves quality of life, decreases symptoms and decreases medication use in patients with frequent sinusitis.”

The Mayo Clinic identified mold and fungi as leading causes of sinusitis. And Alkalol’s blend of naturally antiseptic ingredients has been shown in independent laboratory tests to clear out bacteria and inhibit the growth mold and fungi. Alkalol’s special mix of salts are hypertonic, resulting in greater pressure to clear nasal passages. This type of saline is recommended in many recent medical studies.

Fact: An essential oil is the “essence” of the plant it comes from and herbal extracts are just like it, as they come from herbs.

What are the benefits of Alkalol and nasal irrigation?

  • Clears nasal cavities of mucus
  • Helps improve the function of cilia, the tiny hairs lining the nasal cavity that protects it
  • Helps decrease mucosal swelling
  • Decreases levels of chemicals that cause nasal cavity inflammation
  • Prevents mucus from gathering where it may become a breeding ground for bacteria
  • Decreases risk of developing chronic sinus infections
  • Aids in preventing the number of colds and flu
  • Helps relieve nasal dryness and post-nasal drip
  • Breathing is easier because nasal passages are cleared of mucus and other irritants, helping relieve congestion.

Nasal irrigation is thought to help treat ailments including allergic rhinitis, chronic sinusitis, occupational exposure to irritants, the common cold, sinus and nasal injury, and rhino sinusitis. These studies are ongoing.
