Alkalol Nasal Wash -- 16 fl oz
If you have allergies or a sore or scratchy throat this product is great to gargle with. It immediately soothes scratchy throats. If you put a little in your nasal saline solution, it also helps clear your sinuses. Great product, just wish they had more in stock!

Alkalol is like no other and a must have!
I have been using Alkalol for most of 13 years for relief from chronic sinus issues. It was originally recommended by my doctor after my first of 3 sinus surgeries. I cannot say enough about the wonders of the relief I receive from using this product. Just so you know, no Nettie pot for me. I use this product with the hard core full-size waterpik with nasal irrigator.
Going from buying it back when it was $2.00 a bottle to struggling to get a store to order it for me at sometimes over $8.00 a bottle and even on the internet at those high prices plus shipping because it was even harder to find free shipping.
So I stopped using it for a while and suffered greatly.
After suffering for too long I went looking for it again on the internet to discover pricing and shipping had changed and found Vitacost a much need friend to bring back my relief.
If you suffer like I do, no gross detailed explanations needed. Just try it. The relief is instantaneous and palpable. Using Alkalol speaks for itself. I couldn't say enough great things about it.

Nothing else like it.
Due to chronic sinusitis , I need something i can use to wash out my sinuses. This product in 8 ounces of warm saline water is great for addressing my sinus problems. I simply add one eighth of a teaspoon of salt to 8 oz. of warm water and then add 1 to 2 oz. of Alkalol. I pour it into my cupped hand and suck it up my nose as I bend over the sink. This flushes out my sinuses in a very soothing manner. I don't know what I would do without it.

Add 1 or 2 capfuls to a saline salt wash
I've been doing Neti for over 30 years and recently a friend gave me a bottle of Alkalol. Tried it both full and half-strength and was far too strong. I add one or two capfuls to my normal saline solution -- backing off just a bit on the amount of salt and the experience is far better than salt and water alone.
If you are buying pre-measured salt packets, consider going to a health food store and buying a pound of sea salt (of course, it would have no iodide nor other additives) for less than $1-. It will last you a whole year.
Also avoid plastic neti pots. I have two porcelain neti pots and their smooth spout slides into the nostrils far better than plastic.
