How to Use a Neti Pot

My entire life, I’ve dealt with being stuffed up. I’ve always had problems with my ears, nose and throat. When I started stuffing up recently, I decided to take a new and drastic approach. I wanted to try something I had seen on YouTube, that supposedly really works… a Neti Pot. It looks weird and awkward, yes. But apparently, it works! My friend Imei came over to watch and laugh, and to hold the camera for me.

You know, this is touted as a miracle cure of sorts. It unclogs your sinus region, allowing you to be able to breathe freely. This saves you from needing to take medications, use nasal sprays, or walk around miserable. Hey, if I can breathe again, then I’m all for it!

Of course, I bought the proper type of salt that is made for the Neti Pot. You do NOT use regular table salt. Good lord, can you imagine?! Ewww. That would burn! I also have some Sesame Oil to lubricate the nasal passages, warm water, Kleenex to blow out the excess gunk. You’re supposed to use a full pot for each nostril, but I decided to take it a little easy my first time out.

It was very strange, for sure. I couldn’t help but laugh through it. However, I have to admit it… it works. I feel much less congested than when I started. It’s possible that I need to redo it, and I plan to. The Sesame Seed oil didn’t burn or smell bad. It apparently will keep my nose from drying out too much.

I recommend that you think about trying this if you have problems with your sinuses like I do.
