We’ve all had that awful congested and blocked nose at some point in our lives, from those times when we catch a cold or if we suffer from allergies. Besides the fact that being able to breathe through the nose just feels more comfortable, the nose plays an important role to help filter out foreign particles that may otherwise travel through our airways to our lungs.

So how can you and your family breathe easier through the nose when a cold or allergies strike? Have you considered trying a nasal spray? Nasal sprays contain ingredients that work directly on the nasal passages to help unblock and clear the nose and relieve that feeling of congestion.

When you’re looking for a nasal spray that can help you and your family find relief from your next blocked nose, it’s reassuring to know that Nyal® has two different nasal sprays that are available in your local supermarket, so you can easily pick one up on your next grocery shopping trip.

Nasal Decongestant Spray

Nyal® Decongestant Nasal Spray relieves nasal congestion associated with:

• Colds and flu 

• Allergy and hayfever

• Sinusitis

It contains the active ingredient phenylephrine hydrochloride, which is a decongestant known to improve airflow and drainage through the nasal passages.

Suitable for adults and children over 12 years of age. Do not use for more than 3 days at a time, unless advised by a doctor or pharmacist.

What makes a decongestant nasal spray so useful for relieving nasal congestion? The key word here is nasal – by spraying it into your nose, the decongestant is delivered directly to the nasal passages where it goes to work right at the site of congestion – and it does so quickly . This helps to limit the possibility of any effects on other parts of the body, which may happen with an oral decongestant (one that you take as a tablet or a liquid by mouth).

It is important to remember that decongestant nasal sprays should not be used for more than a few days at a time, as longer use can lead to rebound nasal congestion or other problems in the nose.

Saline Nasal Spray

Nyal® Gentle Relief Saline Nasal Spray is a nasal spray that contains sodium chloride (salt) to gently and naturally clear nasal congestion. It helps to clear blocked noses, so can be used as a nasal spray for cold and flu congestion, and it helps wash away allergens, dust, and pollen, so can also be used as a hayfever nasal spray or nasal spray for allergies.

Because it is non-medicated and preservative-free, Nyal Gentle Relief Saline Nasal Spray is suitable for children from 0 years and suitable for everyday use.

So the next time you or a family member catches a cold, or is battling allergies or hayfever, and starts to feel that stuffy, blocked nose, reach for Nyal Nasal Sprays – the trusted Aussie brand available to easily pick up at your local supermarket.



First remove the protective cap, then insert the tip of the atomiser into your nostril while keeping your head upright. Then hold the bottle between your first and second fingers with your thumb at the base of the bottle and depress the tab firmly while inhaling deeply through your nose. Before initial use or after prolonged storage, you will need to remove the protective cap from the nozzle and depress the tab firmly several times to prime the pump.


When used for longer than the recommended 3 days, nasal congestion may cause irritation and rebound nasal congestion.


Using nasal decongestant spray for longer than the recommended 3 days may cause rebound nasal congestion, so always follow the instructions for dosing and talk to your health professional if symptoms persist.
