MyPurMist Handheld Steam Inhaler Review from Powered by Mom

MyPurMist – Fast, natural relief from colds, allergies and sinus congestion

As someone who has suffered from season allergies (hello hayfever) since she was a child I’m always curious about products that can help provide me relief. I prefer to not use medication if I don’t have to so when I learned about the MyPurMist I was thrilled to have them send me a product to review. I’ve been utilizing various natural strategies and remedies for my allergies and it does help but nothing has provided immediate relief.


Most of what I do is preventative such as having good quality air purifiers (yes more than one as this allergy sufferer needs them throughout the house), essential oils and more. I loved the idea of seeing if good old steam could help me because when my allergies are irritated I don’t exaggerate when I say I suffer. Hello itchy red eyes, stuffy swollen nose and more, so much so people always ask me if I’m okay when they see me like that because I look like death warmed over.

Besides the MyPurMist being free of any chemicals and just using steam there are many reasons to love using this awesome device. Did you know the following benefits of using steam?

Steam is the recommended approach for natural respiratory relief by doctors and healthcare professionals. Steam is proven to help with the discomfort associated with sinusitis, allergies, cough, colds, flu, and other respiratory conditions.? 2 5?12 13?

Steam provides sore and dry passages with moisture, while excess pollen and environmental pollutants are cleansed. Soothing vapor eases nasal congestion and sinus pressure by relieving inflammation. A natural mucolytic, steam helps to thin sticky mucus allowing easy clearance of the airways.

MyPurMmist has taken steam deliver to whole new level so that we can benefit from it. We don’t have to boil water and neither does the machine. It has instant fine mist that penetrates into our sinuses, nose and throat for quick relief. You’re not going to get that from a steam hot bowl of anything, trust me we’ve been there with the towel over our head and the whole bit.

At first I admit we felt silly putting this “mask” over our face and even joked about how looked like we were in a movie that had an infectious disease and hence the mask lol. Yes we get creative here, in fact you can probably see my daughter smiling underneath the mask in the picture below.

However after using the MyPurMist just a few times we could feel the benefits. I’m the only one with allergies but my daughter has other sinus issues so we both used it. We could feel our nasal passages clearing up. For myself my allergies would make my nose itchy, and I would be extremely stuffed. When I finally remembered to grab MyPurMist the itchiness started to go away. I kicked myself for not taking out MyPurMist sooner.
Just this week we all came down with a nasty spring cold. The first thing my daughter and I did was take out the MyPurMist. Her cough was worse than mine so I’ve let her use it more. She uses it every time the cough starts to get bad and it’s provided her with immediate relief. She says her throat no longer feels dry and her cough is starting to get better. The MyPurMist worked better than the cough medicine which wasn’t working at all for my daughter!
The 411 on the MyPurMist
  • Instant fine mist penetrates deep into your sinuses, nose, and throat – Provides superb relief
  • 100% natural & 100% drug-free
  • Handheld, portable, and lightweight
  • 99.9999% germ-free warm mist
  • Microprocessor controls multiple safety features and regulates temperature within 100-1150F
  • Instant steam for fast relief – No waiting
  • Automatic drying cycle – No cleanup
  • No boiling water – No scalding risk
  • Great for the whole family (for ages above 12 years)

We love the MyPurMist but like all things there is room for improvement. We would love it even more if it was cordless, the cord is long but it would be so much more convenient if it was cordless. I don’t know the technical side of things, maybe there’s a reason it needs to be wired but if they ever come up with a cordless version we’d be over the moon. It is a light unit so you can take it with you as long as you can plug it in somewhere.

We won’t be without it now since it’s providing us germ free and medication free steam to give us relief for our nose, sinuses and throat. My allergies are so much better when I use it and they go away quicker so that makes me very happy. My daughter and I give MyPurMist a four thumbs up.

  61. Debbie Welchert says:

    I love that it is medicine and 99.9999% germ free. In fact, there isn’t anything that I can say that I don’t like. It really does sound remarkable and a product my family could benefit from.

  62. I love the whole concept, it could be so helpful and make ones life easier.

  63. Due to the inconsistent weather, my teen wakes up with a sore throat every morning. Te PurMist sounds like it would do wonders to help her feel better sooner!

  64. I remember my father always putting the hot water on in the sink and putting a towel over his head and breathing in the steam for his sinuses…he would have LOVED this.

    My grand kids and I suffer from year round allergies. I think this could help us a lot. I like that it has no boiling water so no accidents

  69. Darlene Cruz says:

    Water temperature regulated, germ free, chemical free easy use and clean

  70. I am allergic to everything. I am allergic to 100 of the 101 things my allergist checked me for. Also in desperate need of an antibiotic for my rt. ear & lt. eye infections, but I am allergic to every single antibiotic. Allergic to 35 drugs and 8 foods beside. With my extreme allergies to everything and asthma since birth, I try everything natural just to survive. I try not to use drugs, as they are chemicals, and I am allergic to all of them. I also have sinusitis except for summertime and frequent bad colds. I really need this to help with my allergies. If this helped me, there is no one that it wouldn’t help. I would get one for my family then, so 3 other households for their bad colds and normal allergies. I was just thinking that with my newly diagnosed rosacea, and the fact that I break out the minute I go outside now, this would actually help me breathe and keep the sun and wind off me which would greatly help my breakouts.

  71. Calshondra Williams says:

    Me & my family have the worst allergies. This inhaler review sounds great. I think I’m going to look into purchasing one of them. Thanks for sharing.

    I was surprised to learn about the automatic drying cycle that means less cleanup for me. I like to avoid chemicals and medicines, so this is a great natural option. I was also happy to learn about the self-regulating temperature and that it doesn’t require boiling water.

  75. abedabun dawn says:

    Great review! I wonder if it would help me. I have become allergic to my chihuahuas. I am constantly sneezing.I did not have this problem when I first got my dogs (and they are 12 yrs old now).

  76. Stephanie Phelps says:

    Oh I love that there is something natural to help with those allergies. I know how your daughter feels that cough is horrible. I learned that Steam provides sore and dry passages with moisture, while excess pollen and environmental pollutants are cleansed

  77. oh my goodness I have the worst allergies! I give myself allergy shots lol This MyPurMist would help me so much

  78. Lisa Coomer Queen says:

    This PurMist sounds awesome. I learned it gets the steam to you quick. This would be great for me. Thanks!

  79. suzanne esaine says:

    Thank you for the review of this product. I have entered and hoping to win, but let me say that I too suffer from sinus issues, and as of October last year I have lost the hearing in my right ear. The doctors put me on Steroids thinking it would help, but it hasn’t. I would love to be able to see if this would help get my hearing back since they don’t know why I can’t hear. I have had MRI’s, Xrays, Cat scans and Audiology testing, but still no answers.

  80. I think it would be really nice for my son’s allergies. It would help him to breath better.

  81. I think this would be good to try for tht allergys when the grandkids come over they have a hard time with the kittys

  82. Alicia Hewitt says:

    I like that there isn’t any boiling water used. This is definitely something I would want around the house!

  83. Tamara N says:

    I am quite interested in the MyPurMist for relief of my allergy symptoms. I love that it is germ free and easy to use.

  84. love to have this my wife suffers terribly recently with nose and throat problems safe for adults and kids both

  85. This sounds like something that would be a great help for my chronic nasal congestion and sinus pain! What a wonderful product!

  86. gale mccarron says:

    I love the fact that it’s so portable too. Especially for road trips where the air and enviornment can change and you begin struggling to adjust. Great product to have!

  87. belinda bell says:

    I learned that this would help my allergies. And help me breathe better

  88. Bailey Dexter says:

    Amazing, multiple safety features, instant fine mist, 100% natural and drug free! Perfect for the whole family whether at home or travelling! Love it!

  89. Kim Pinch says:

    My daughter is always having to use a humidifier, I think this would help her a lot. I love that it is instant steam so not waiting.

  90. This looks like a great product! My mom would love this. I love it’s safe for all ages.

  91. Laura Miller says:

    I love this! We have an extremely dry house even with humidifiers running 24/7. This would bring great relief!

  92. Arik Issan says:

    Great that it regulates the water vapor temperature 100-115 degrees. No possibility for a too hot scare.

  93. Linda Kish says:

    I love this idea! I could really use one. I had a steamer years ago…much better than a saucepan, but this is even better still. I like the automatic drying, too. Steaming really does help to break up mucous and congestion quickly and helps with allergies, too.

  94. I could have written the first part of this article, I have the same issues and hate to take any kind of medication too. I use a neti pot, but it’s kind of messy and not always convenient. I saw this on tv, but I’m always leery of things I see on tv, so I didn’t really look into it. I’m glad to read your review and find that it’s the real deal.

  95. What a great way to keep the nasal passages moist. I have severe allergies and what a great way to have some help.

  96. ruby reis says:

    germ free and chemical free is outstanding. personally it sounds great to use as a preventative measure against colds etc. I wish had this when my son was a toddler. he suffered from croup. had to take him to the hospital a few time. also spent many nights in the bathroom with the shower running hot to get the steam. ended up buying a breathing machine… also I sing and this would be perfect.

  97. i learned that this helps with sinus conditions whibh i have bad

  98. Michele Cupp says:

    Drug free, germ free and virtually no cleanup. Love it!

  99. gretchen luper says:

    i learned the mist is free from all chemicals and works almost immediately on the stuffy nose.

  100. Dotty J Boucher says:

    I love that you can take this with you , I really like that it covers your nose and mouth for easy breathing and that it just takes water to help.

  101. Sandy Cain says:

    I learned there is no boiling water here- no risk of getting burned. My brother could use this for his allergies, too! He is disabled and can’t hold on to things securely, so something safe like this is just what he needs. And your four thumbs up review has me convinced it’s a great product! My allergies and sinus problems might just be really fixed with this, too.

  102. I think it is great, I don’t like using meds either I use oils & have used a neti pot. I ‘m like you & would like a cordless version. So that it was more portable.

  103. I learned that you don’t have to boil water with this machine and the machine doesn’t have to either. That makes it way more efficient than anything I have ever seen.

  104. Sophia,M.,McConnery says:

    I use the nose breathing techniques now to clear the nose.Always had stuffy nose issues.

  105. belinda bell says:

    I learn that this gets you the steam you need to help open your nose. I could use this

  106. natalie nichols says:

    I love that the mask is made to comfortably cover the nose and mouth. This would be an absolute blessing in our house.

  107. Regina elliott says:

    I learned that it is fast steam when you can’t breathe so that is a big plus right there ,and its clean steam just use water and its safe for kids and adults
