Nose-Cleaning Salts

The first in Pharmacopoeia Germanica, an occasional series featuring some of the mysterious products you will find in German pharmacies:


"Emser Nose-Cleaning Salts — physiological — with natural Ems salt.  Medicinal product for purification of the nose." 

You snort them, apparently.  My friend swears by them.  "It’s like breathing ocean air!  You should try it!"  I haven’t worked up the courage yet.
