SinuSoothe Review

Sinus Sister snorts the good stuff

It has been suggested that a certain sneezer you know is addicted to her nasal spray. Furthermore, it is alleged that said sneezer gets really grumpy when the backlash hits. Okay, okay. Begrudgingly, I decide to call off the chemicals and try a few alternative products.

Enter SinuSoothe. According to the web site, it’s “ZINC FREE, 100% natural and contains no chemicals, additives or preservatives”. Oh brother. Isn’t “100% natural” code for 100% lame?  But I’ll try to keep an open mind, for the sake of my mucous membranes. The active ingredients have anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-biotic, anti-fungal, anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, ant-septic, anti-viral, decongestant, expectorant and pain relieving properties. Now we’re talking!

But what are the active ingredients? Let’s see….opening the box, I was delighted to find a small, one-sided piece of paper accompanying the spray bottle. Where’s the fine-print document written by liability lawyers? SinuSoothe clearly has nothing to hide. The active ingredients are stated plainly: essential oils of cinnamon, cumin, frankincense, ginger, manuka, tea tree and tumeric diluted in an isotonic saline solution. This sounds like something that goes in your mouth, not up your nose.

After giving the bottle a shake, I inserted the tip into my nostril and snorted while spraying. A tingling sensation was instantaneous, but not unpleasant. No stinging. No burning. Just….breathing.



  1. I used this for a chronic sinus infection of ten years and within a couple of weeks almost all of my symptoms were gone. I had terrible sinus headaches and pain, nasal congestion, the whole works. I now would say I am totally free of the sinusitis (all symptoms have gone) and my sense of smell seems to be even better than I can remember. I found this slightly uncomfortable to use at first but you get used to it. The end results are worth their weight in gold.

    • Can I ask if you are continuing to take this all the time, and that is keeping away your sinus symptoms?
