Neti is an ancient yogic practice that works to clean out your sinuses, relieve allergies and prevent colds. It’s an absolute MUST if you have school-age kids or work in an environment with stale, stuffy air.

I used my neti pot daily for two years and now use it throughout the Fall and whenever I feel the need.

If you have sinus problems, allergies or frequent colds, it’s worth trying nasal cleansing for 4-6 weeks to see if your symptoms improve. I personally know life-long Claritin and pseudoephedrine users who’ve completely cleared up their allergies now that they neti pot daily.

Here’s what you’ll need:

– Two minutes first thing in the morning

– 1/2 – 1 cup boiled water (distilled)

– 1/2 – 1 cup cool water (distilled)

– 1/4 teaspoon fine grain, non-iodinized salt. Sea salt, kosher salt or pharmaceutical salt.

– A pot with a pour spout

– A sink or grassy area

You can also buy a neti pot kit with the pot and pure salt on Amazon here: (aff. link)
