Neti Pots

Apologies this is not the most intellectually stimulating topic!

Does any of you lovely HE people use a Neti pot? Do your sinuses feel significantly cleaner after each use?

Do you recommend buying one?

Share you neti pot love stories.

Thanks ^_^

luke warm water w/ some salt in one nostril out the other… takes a second for it to filter the sinus passages… feels like drowning for a second… works really good thou…have to tilt head parallel to the ground while pouring too… some of it stays in there until it comes out like 5-10-15-20 minutes later.

Have one at home, use it when necessary, great tool :) One of the reasons why we recommend it in the HE store!

I’ve never tried it but I’d love to, I’m really curious about it since I can’t imagine how it could be enjoyable or just how you could put water in one nostril and make it go all the way to the other without breathing it…

Thank you all :)

Just ordered a porcelain one which comes with a cute little spoon for measuring salt!

@newday, Just a tip, only use a little salt. I think I used too much, because my nose began to bleed about an hour after I used it.

@waterbuffalo, Will do thanks !
I have read that you should either use Himalayan salt or sea salt (without preservatives) .
I’ve found this page very informative, it seems to cover everything related to neti pots and the best methods to use them
