Halo Oral Antiseptic Spray Review & Giveaway - Ended

Have you ever had someone sneeze on your arm as you walk by or cough right in front of you as you are talking to them?  That is a Halo moment.  I have Halo moments everyday whether it's from students or my own kids.  Last week my first grade class was lining up and a kid walking by started coughing all over my arm.  He wasn't even attempting to cover his mouth. This is just one of many Halo moments I have multiple times throughout the day.

I teach over 500 elementary students a week and my husband has about 150 high school students.  Also, our kids just started Pre-School/daycare this year.  Needless to say, we are around lots of germs all day.   We go through a lot of hand sanitizer and soap.  We've also been sick a lot this year and it's only November.

I recently learned about Halo Oral Antiseptic Spray.  It is an oral antiseptic that you spray in your mouth.  It coats the back of your throat and protects you against breathable germs for up to 6 hours.  It sounds amazing.  I tried the berry flavor and it taste pretty good.  I tasted the children's grape flavor and, personally, I prefer the berry. There's not way to know for sure that it is working except to trust the research which you can check out here

You can use it up to 3 times a day.  It says not to use it more than 7 days without permission from a Doctor or Dentist.  I did see on their Facebook page that it is okay to use 5 days a week.  I'm excited to have this extra line of defense for something I normally cannot control.

  2. Geez, how to pick just one! I avoid ill people as much as possible, but it is inevitable that I get "germed" by someone. The last was a woman having an unguarded coughing attack in the store, and I was passing her at that moment. Ugh!

  6. I knew there was a good reason I didn't want to go to school as a kid

  7. I have Mysophobia so I have several Halo moments a day...or an hour lol. My worst fear is airborne germs because there is not much i can do about them, I can't hand sanitize my mouth and the air I breathe. Now that I know about Halo maybe I can lol. My Halo moment I will share is when I am in the grocery store and walk passed someone who just sneezed or coughed. I have a panic attack! I hold my breath for as long as I can until I get passed the area. I have not bought Halo yet because I don't know anyone who has tried it but Im sure I will. I no longer want to hold my breathe in public areas.
