    It was recommended to me by my speech coach, after I complained about having frequent sinus pains and running nose. He swears by it, because he cannot afford to lose his voice to colds or have his nose stuffed. I was very skeptical, because doctors advised me to rinse my nose before, but the process of trying to put water into my nose had never been working out for me. This package comes with a tube for putting the solution into your nasal packages, and this tube's design on its own accord is worth the money. It is very simple, but for me it is valuable, because it allows to put the solution into my nose without any discomfort. See the blue tube on the picture. A small end goes into the nostril, and you keep a finger on the second opening on the side to regulate the water flow. You don't even have to tilt your head that much.
    I got into the habit of rinsing both nostrils several times a week, and I am on my second bottle. I bought it for my family too, because I love it. I have had no allergies or sinus pains this whole season while everyone around me in the office complains about pollen. If you struggle with any conditions that make your sinus pockets swell, don't just complain - try Alcalol.
    I tried different concentrations, knowing that some people find strong concentrations to cause burning sensations. I definitely feel the difference, but find the sensation rather invigorating and not unpleasant.
    Basically, I love it. It improved the quality of my life. I am not connected to the producer or drugstore in any way.

    A few ounces of this product mixed with 16 ounces of water and a packet of saline made for sinus rinsing (I like Grossan brand, it doesn't sting) works great for me, one or two times a day in my hydropulse machine. You can also use a hand squeeze rinse bottle. I would not use this product full strength - too strong and too expensive for that.

      Comments about Alkalol Nasal Wash, 16 fl oz:

      I initially used this as about a tablespoon in water in my nasal wash squeeze bottle. OK, but then I used the nasal tube that came with the product. The instructions tell you that if you dilute it with more water than Alkalol, add salt to the solution or it will give you a burning sensation. Very true- try plain water to see how true that is. I forgot the salt the first time. Using the nasal tube, I used half water, and it was fine, and actually felt nice. What is good about the tube more than the squeeze bottle is that it flows via gravity only, and you control the rate. Cleared up my stuffy nose right away.

      Comments about Alkalol Nasal Wash, 16 fl oz:

      I have been using this product for many years. It is great for managing chronic sinusitis, though not especially easy to use until you get used to it. It's best when mixed with some salt water and poured into the sinuses with the enclosed vessel, or with a neti pot, or (as I do) with a six-ounce plastic squeeze bottle, which can be sterilized in the dishwasher. Once you get into the habit of daily or several-times-a-day use, you will probably like it as much as I do.

        This helps with my allergies as well as preventing sinus infections. I mix with saline or distilled water 50/50 and put in an old Afrin nasal mister. Don't recommend using with tap water or full strength though!

              ENT doc recommended in 1992 to relieve sinus congestion. I mix Alkalol with warm distilled water, a little salt. Inhale in one nostril at a time, tilt head back slightly then bend over sink and let solution run out. I repeat for each nostril until the sinus are clear enough to breath.

              Comments about Alkalol Nasal Wash, 16 fl oz:

              As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a great accompaniment to normal saline sinus rinses. I have tried using it per manufacturer's recommendations and OUCH. BURNS like CRAZY. Instead, we add 2-4 capfuls of Alkalol in our NeilMed Sinus Rinse bottle, after mixing our warm water saline solution up. It is like a very natural feeling Vick's product clearing out your sinus passages. The menthol/eucalyptus freshness lingers helping you to stay clear. HIGHLY recommend this for anyone like us, who used to get several sinus infections a year. We haven't had one since adding this to our sinus rinse routine!!

                It's essentally a booster for your Neti Pot. If you have allergies that clog your sinuses this is a must have. It makes the nasal wash much more effective and moisturizes dry nasal passages. It also works brilliantly if you have a cold. I think it even shortens a colds duration. At any rate, it clears your head and nose and makes you a lot more comfortable.

                      I have been using this product for years and love it. My local pharmacy that used to order it for me went out of business, so I am glad to find it here. I have chronic sinus problems and allergies, and use both the neti pot and the NeilMed squirt bottle. This is a good addition to both of them. Get it!
