Most commonly in the medical field, atomizers are used for spraying a fine mist into the nasal cavity. Saline solution is commonly used to clean out nasal passages. This combination has been proven to help several issues such as hay fever, sinus infections, allergies and a general cleaning out of mucus before using any prescription that may have to also go up the nasal cavity. Saline solution injected through an atomizer has also been shown to help with dry noses in winter time, keeping more moisture inside. This has the potential to lessen bloody noses that are more prone to happen in winter as well. It can also deliver prescriptions through the oral cavity, or you feel like getting creative and adding a touch of luxury, use your atomizer with mouthwash.
Atomizers can be used to effectively clean wounds, applying disinfectant such as hydrogen peroxide on wounds and burns that might be sensitive to touch. Spray a light mist to clean the wound before applying the necessary wrapping or dressing. You can also use them to disinfect various surfaces with other disinfecting wipes and solutions. The fine mist prevents too much solution from getting into the wound or on the surface you are disinfecting, preventing waste.
They also make great diffusers for essential oils. Diluted with water, the soft mist provides a gentle aromatherapy in your favorite scent while simultaneously freshening the room and covering the odors of everyday living. With so many great uses, an atomizer is a necessity for your home and family's health and well-being.
