ALKALOL is a wonderful skin toner! Delighted you've discovered this as well. It seems to drive the mites away in droves. Also heals skin and sooths the itch. All these ingredients work together but I believe the addition of potassium alum, alcohol and baking soda helps to dry out and dehydrate them. Even though skin clear now I will continue to use for life. Complimented all the time on how "beautiful" my skin is. Little do they know skin scabs itch and bumps/ Acne for years. When asked what I use people are reluctant to use nasal rinse on face!!! Their loss but not ours. Curious have you used on any other part of your body? Like ears and yes, nasal passages?
