What is Happinose Balm Soothing Nasal Congestion Relief?
Happinose is a nasal congestion relief congestion treatment that helps to clear a blocked nose and sinuses. This works thanks to the active ingredient levomenthol, which is a decongestant that relieves a blocked or stuffy nose and makes breathing easier.
What causes a blocked nose?
A blocked nose can be caused by several different conditions. These include:
- A common cold
- Catarrh (mucus build-up in the nose and back of the throat and the sinuses)
- A head cold
- Hay fever
- Other types of allergy
A blocked nose is a side effect of these conditions and is a result of the blood vessels becoming swollen in the nose. Mucus build-up can also be a factor in a blocked nose.
Who is this Happinose Balm suitable for?
Happinose is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 5 and over. Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the balm should not use it.
