In brief: Start with saline

Oregano oil and grapefruit seed extract are thought to have antimicrobial effects; however, there is little evidence that using them in a nasal rinse is any better than simple salt water nasal rinses.
Their risks in causing irritation to the nasal lining or allergic reactions are also poorly known at this time.
