Sinu Orega Nasal Spray

Details: From Puritan's Pride: Sinu Orega Nasal Spray.  North American Herb and Spice Sinu Prega aromatic spice formula (P73) nasal spray.  Emulsified oils of wild oregano, bay leaf, sage, and clove in a sea salt and springwater base.  2 fl oz bottle.  Nonaddictive product.  This is a natural nasal wash powered by potent spice extracts.  $13 dollar average pricing.

How to use: insert nozzle next to inner nasal membrane and gently squirt.  immediately sniff contents deeply to distribute throughout the sinuses.  Repeat with each nostril.  for best results sniff deeply, and repeat as needed.  Temporary burning, stinging, sneezing or increased nasal discharge may occur.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary product from Puritan's Pride in exchange for an honest, non biased review.

My Review:  This is product review 2 of 5, in a set of product reviews from Puritan's Pride.  These product reviews are on allergy products.  My husband has been diagnosed with allergies by our doctor just recently, and when asked to help with these product reviews, I thought it was perfect timing so that he can compare these natural products with the ones his doctor prescribed to him.  I thought that I would also try these products as I've had lots of sneezing, sinus infections, and stuffed nose/ headaches recently.  When I took the package off the Sinu Orega, I immediately smelled very strong herbs/ spices.  With this immediate strong smell with the cap still on the bottle, I knew there was no way I would get my husband to try this product.  So I needed to do my best to will myself to try this product.  When I squirted into my nostril, OH WOW!  It burned, it stung, I couldn't bring myself to breathe in deeply like the directions asked.  I couldn't do it.  I blew out as much as I could, but was breathing in the herb and spice scent for a long time afterward.  It also gave me a huge head ache.

I  tried, it, as much as I could.  But honestly I don't know who would want to try this product.  It really might help you breathe better, and clear your sinuses but I personally can't get over the smell, and the temporary symptoms from using it.

My Rating: Thumbs Down


  1. I suffer with sinustitus.Just got this product tried once and it is not that bad.and the smell who doesn't kike the smell of clove..reminds me of a baked ham ..HAHA..Hopefully this will get me off my meds.and cure the facial pains,but I will at least give it 30 days to see my results.1 day is stupid to try and think anything works in a day.

  2. Best stuff ever. Take it from a nurse most sinus infections become fungal. I suffered from eight a year that were results of allergies. Haven't had one for two years and off my allergy sprays now. Burns yes but I have a high pain threshold. When I get that feeling that an infection is starting or trying to start I use it every half an hour for several hours and then it kills whatever was trying to start. Taste- you shouldn't get a ton down the back of your throat if using correctly. You must aim the nozzle once in your nose for the same ear on that side this ensures that the spray goes to your sinuses and not down the back of your throat. Most people do not know this. We need to start relying on nature for our antibiotics then we wouldn't have so many antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria out there.

  3. I agree with the nurse. I was about to do yet another round of antibiotics for a sinus infection that started in late fall and then went acute on Christmas 2014. I read about this stuff, all the positive testimonials, and started using it yesterday. What a turnaround! This stuff works. I'm a biology prof and so I'm a bit skeptical of "home remedies" but this one makes sense from a microbiology perspective. The burning sensation is minor.

  4. I am regular reader of your blog and no doubt it all stuff is awesome. The best thing about your sharing and posting is that you always provide content that is helpful for both the newbie and experts.Zolmist Nasal Spray in UK
