Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You’ll Need:
- Netty pot
- 1/4 tbs. table or sea salt
- Hand towel
Fill the netty pot with lukewarm water. Most netty pots are shaped like a small watering can.
Add ¼ tbs. of table or sea salt to the water in the netty pot. Salt will help dry out your nasal passages and will help prevent infection.
While leaning over a sink, tilt your head to the side and insert the spout of the netty pot into your nostril. Pour the water into the nasal passage so that it flows out the other nostril.
Tilt your head to the opposite side and repeat step 3 for the opposite nostril.
Repeat until the salt-water solution is gone.
Exhale through your nose and blow out any excess fluid.
