Using a Neti Pot
Are you congested due to a cold, allergies, or something else? Are you suffering from a sinus infection or dry weather? Using a neti pot may be worth trying.
Our friends at Baraka make the beautiful style neti pot (to the right). You can find their products in our Essentials Store or on their website – www.sinussupport.com.
- Neti Pot
- Saline Solution
- Clean, warm water
- Grey / Sea Salt (not table salt)
Saline Solution Recipe:
- Heat 2 cups (16 ounces) of clean water (not tap water) to just above body temperature.
- Mix in ½ to 1 teaspoon of grey sea salt (do not use iodized salt / table salt)
- We suggest using Baraka Salt Blend / Sinus Rinse
- You can also add an additional ¼ teaspoon of baking soda, per cup, to the mixture.
- Make sure the solution is a comfortable temperature (too hot or too cold will hurt)
- Fill your neti pot with the Saline Solution
- Stand over a sink
- Inserted the neti pot spout into one nostril
- Tilted your head so that the water runs through the nasal passage and out the other nostril
- Breath through your mouth during this process to relax sinus cavity
- Repeated on the other side
- Keep a tissue or towel handy and allow your nose to drain for a few minutes
- Gently and slowly blow your nose afterward
Did you know the neti pot was actually created to clear out bad memories and trauma trapped in the brain? The water moves through the 3rd eye, which is where the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus (brain/body switchboard) are located. It’s great for more than just congestion.
For histamine response on liver:
Rub in 4 drops of Lavindin Essential Oil (not Lavender, but similar) over your liver (on the right side) just under the bottom of the ribcage, 4 times per day.
For congestion due to allergies:
Rub 6 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil on your chest, 3 times per day.
For inflammation (weeping eyes, red profuse skin, head pressure)
Use 3 drops of Blue Yarrow on your neck (warrior lymph).
