ChamiflorÒOcean nasal spray helps you breathe easy
A blocked nose can disrupt your life, whether you are struggling with congestion or if your little one is battling to breathe. 1
Babies younger than 6 months breathe mainly through their noses. They are unable to clear mucous that collects in the nose and therefore tend to suffer from blocked noses. Other common causes of a stuffy nose in babies and infants could be viral infections, allergies and even reflux. A blocked nose may disturb your little one’s sleep and make sucking and feeding difficult. 2,3,4
Saline nasal sprays are used for cleaning and gentle rinsing of the nasal cavity, whether it is due to crusts blocking baby’s nose, or exposure to house dust and pollen, as well as for supportive treatment in rhinitis and/ or a stuffy nose. 2
ChamiflorÒ Ocean nasal spray with added Chamomile, combines ocean water with natural sea salts, purified water, and chamomile extracts.
Chamomile has been used for centuries as a calming agent and is one of the most widely used and well-documented medicinal plants in the world. A lesser known fact is that Chamomile extract added in a nasal spray has been shown to restore the delicate lining of the nasal passages. 5,6
This could be a benefit for little, sensitive noses or for those at risk of nose bleeds due to thinning of the lining of the nose. Chronic use of some nasal sprays and air conditioners could dry nasal passages, increasing the risk for nose bleeds. 7,8 The chamomile in Chamiflor® can aid in moistening the nasal passages, thereby decreasing nose bleeds.
ChamiflorÒOcean nasal spray provides a fine mist and can be used to safely and gently cleanse, and rinse blocked, stuffy noses of babies and children, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women.
ChamiflorÒ Ocean nasal spray is available without a prescription. Ask your pharmacist for ChamiflorÒ Ocean.
