The Nasal Neti pot is a vessel designed to flush and rinse the sinuses and nasal passages from debris and mucus. By thinning the mucus, the neti pot makes it easier for a person to breathe. This natural remedy can be used to help with a variety of symptoms of nasal congestion including colds/flu, allergies, snoring and dryness.
Why use a neti-pot?
A neti pot, helps to flush our mucus from your nose, helping to clear sinuses, congestion and decrease irritation.
Using the neti pot is one of the six Shatkarmas. Shatkarmas are known yogic cleansing techniques.
Make sure to prepare your saline solution safely and clean your neti pot after every use. The physical action of pouring the warm solution through your nostrils clears the way for a new day. It is known to refresh you and prepare your mind giving an element of purity to your body.
You should only continue using a neti pot if it relieves your symptoms. If you find the neti pot to be ineffective or if it irritates your nasal passages, talk to your doctor.
Use & Care
Use a saltwater solution, saline or water to clear your nostrils when using the neti pot.
To use, pour the solution into the pot and then into one nostril at a time.
We recommend leaning over a sink so that the liquid solution doesn’t spill everywhere. Tilt your head sideways over the sink and place the spout of the neti pot in the upper nostril. Breathing through your open mouth, gently pour the saltwater solution into your upper nostril so that the liquid drains through the lower nostril. Repeat on the other side.
It’s important to use caution when using the neti pot and trying nasal irrigation.
