Live or Work in Adverse Conditions? Captain Peppermint Can Help.
If you are among the millions of people who work in (or live near) a dusty, dirty environment, you'll probably benefit from irrigating your sinuses with all natural non-medicated Captain Peppermint. While our nasal passages are equipped to protect our lungs from foreign particles, the conditions found in agricultural work, factories, mines, and other similar environments can overwhelm nasal membranes and inhibit the expulsion of dust, dirt, and other particles.
Sinus irrigation, or nasal wash, is an inexpensive way to cleanse the sinus and clear nasal membranes of foreign substances. Since the 1980s, numerous clinical studies have focused on the use of saline solutions to irrigate sinus cavities and many peer-reviewed studies have also suggested that saline irrigation is simple to use and well tolerated.
Nasal Tips for Travel
Confined spaces, including an aircraft cabin, can expose travelers to environmental allergens and/or contagious respiratory infections. This can be a real problem for those bothered by pet dander (on the clothing of pet owners), dust or airborne viruses circulating in the closed cabin from those within close proximity. Such irritation can cause inflammation of the lining of the nose and sinuses. While frequent hand washing and the use of a mask may help, the latter can be uncomfortable, inconvenient and socially awkward.
To maintain hydration of the nose while flying:
- Keep well hydrated with intake of adequate fluids.
- Avoid beverages that cause dehydration, such as coffee and alcohol.
- Use a nasal spray periodically during long flights.
