How to use a neti nasal cleansing pot?
1. Prepare the Saline Solution
Generally most people find that non-iodized table salt is
the best source of the salt for mixing the saline solution.
We do not recommend the use of sea salt as it is sometimes
too strong and may irritate.
Mix approximately 1/4
teaspoon of fine table salt into about 1 cup (8 oz.) of warm
water, until it is fully dissolved. The water should be warm,
but not hot. It should feel pleasantly warm to the touch so
as to not irritate your nasal passages with either too hot or
too cold water. Never use either HOT or COLD water. You
may prefer to use bottled water if your local water supply
is too hard or has chemicals or an unappealing taste.
2. Fill your Nasal Cleansing Pot
Once you have the saline solution mixed, pour it into the
Nasal Cleansing Pot. You may choose to actually mix it
right in the pot to save a step.
3. The Process of Nasal Cleansing
- Nasal Cleansing is best done as part of a regular hygiene
routine. As you will have saline water flowing and mucus
being discharged, it is best to practice this process over a
sink or basin.
- Tilt your head to the side as shown. You will notice that
when you get the proper angle, the water will flow easily
from the upper nostril and out the lower nostril. It takes just
a little bit of practice to get it just right. This is the most
important factor in a successful nasal wash. Don’t be afraid to adjust your head slightly to get the most comfortable
angle for your own personal practice. You should find that
having your forehead at an angle about the same level as
your chin will be just right.
- Insert spout of Nasal Cleansing Pot gently into the raised
nostril and create a seal between the Pot and your nostril.
- Raise the Nasal Cleansing Pot slowly to develop a steady
flow of saline solution through the upper nostril and out
the lower nostril. You are in total control of the flow of the
saline water by the way you hold the pot. The higher you
hold it, the faster the flow. Try to find the right flow just for
you by raising the pot slowly while you hold your head in
the correct position.
- During the process breathe through your mouth. The
angle of your head is important to allow you to breath
easily through your mouth during the process. If you do
not have sufficient angle to keep your forehead at about
the level of your chin or just slightly higher than your chin,
you will find water draining into your mouth. If this
happens as you get to know the process, simply adjust the
angle of your head to bring the forehead more or less in line with your chin and start over again.
- Upon completion of the process, exhale gently several
times to clear the nasal passages. You may want to use a
tissue to catch any excess mucus.
- Reverse the tilt of your head and repeat the process on
the other side. Some people find they can clear both sides
with one pot full of saline solution, but most people prefer
using an entire potful for each nostril.
- Once you get into practice, the entire process only takes
a couple of minutes.
4. Completion of the Process
- It is beneficial to do some simple gentle exhalation
blowing through both of your nostrils after completion.
Either do this over a sink or into a tissue. Be sure to not
close off your nostrils as you blow as you are trying to
expel the excess solution and any residual mucus.
- Some people find it beneficial to do some side or forward
bending to allow easier drainage. Experiment with this to
find out what works best for you.
5. Cleaning your Nasal Cleansing Pot
After use, simply wash out the pot with warm water and
dish soap and rinse away all soap and other residues. We
have made our device out of sturdy food-grade porcelain
so that it is dishwasher safe if you prefer.
