It is used for the moistening of mucous membranes of the whole nasal cavity and nasopharynx, mainly when staying in the places with low relative humidity, in the places where the central heating is used, and in the places contaminated with dust particles. For the irrigation of nose, use the nasal shower (or nasal douche). These may be obtained in pharmacies. Nose may be irrigated also with the assistance of a jug.
