Neti Pot

Updated: Apr 7


Neti Pot

The nasal passages are the body's first line of defense against pollution, allergens, and irritants. Keeping them clear, clean, and functioning properly can increase protection against disease. The neti pot is a traditional Ayurvedic therapy that dates back thousands of years, and many people with allergies and sinus concerns are turning to it as an alternative to medications.

When you breathe in allergens, pollution, and other irritants, mucus production can increase, setting the stage for congestion, inflammation, and infection. You can prevent and relieve symptoms like sinus infections, common colds, and other illnesses by performing a nasal rinse before this can occur.

How to use a Neti Pot

* Fill the neti pot with lukewarm water.

* Add ¼ teaspoon of sea or table salt (without added iodine) to the water. Neti salt is sold online, at the pharmacy, and at Whole Foods.

* Lean your head over the basin, bending your neck slightly, and look downwards with your eyes. Gently place the neti pot's spout inside your right nostril, forming a seal to avoid any outer leakage. Open your mouth slightly. Breathe continuously through your open mouth during this sinus cleansing procedure, which allows the necessary air passageway so that the water will not drain into your mouth.

* Tilt your head sideways so your right nostril is directly above your left nostril. Tip the neti pot, allowing the water solution to pour into your right nostril; the water will naturally drain from your left nostril into the sink.

* About halfway through, change sides and finish the other side.

* After the net pot is empty, remove the spout from your nostril, exhale through both nostrils, and then gently blow your nose into a tissue.
