I beg to differ. How do you define refua? Just because I make an uncomfortable situation more comfortable does not mean I’m healing anything. Why is it acceptable to use shmeck in shul (that brown powder that people snort toward the end of davening) is it a refua?
Not sure if you read the previous replies but I refined the question as one using this vapor soothers nasal clip in order to enjoy the scent. So do you make a bracha? Its made from essential oils could be there taka is real cinnamon in there?
Also, its not a spray if that makes any difference. Its just a clip (shaped like a horse shoe) that has these miniscule vapor pellets inside the tips that are inserted in the nostrils. So its kind of a new thing. A spray is clearly for medicinal purposes. This one can use to make the air around you smell good. Trust me, I thought of wearing it on the subway just to make the commute less smelly…
So in a case where I use this vapor soother clip not davka for medicine would there be a safek bracha?
But it’s not necessarily medicine. Its actually drug free. It says on the box that its made from essential oils and is organic. Now I agree you may be using it to releive congestion but its not healing you per se. But lets say your right. What if I just wanna wear one because it smells nice?
