The Perfect Neti Pot for Sinus Support
Neti pots are wonderful devices to use in nasal irrigation, a sinus therapy that flushes the nasal passages with saltwater. Individuals who have sinus issues due to seasonal and environmental irritants report that the practice helps with nasal congestion and pressure. Neti pot use works by flushing the area of irritants and thinning out mucus.
Baraka offers a sinus health product called Neti Pot that is an excellent devise for use with saltwater in nasal irrigation.

How to Use Neti Pot
1. Fill your neti pot just below lip with distilled or boiled water - cooled to room temperature.
2. Add a heaping 1/2 tsp of mineral sea salt. Stir until thoroughly dissolved.
3. Bend over sink and turn your head to one side.
4. Keeping pot level, place spout into your top nostril until it fits snugly.
5. Breathe through your mouth and slowly tip your head downward allowing warm water to travel up through your sinuses and out the other nostril.
6. You may need to adjust the angle of your head slightly in order to allow the water to flow out the other nostril.
7. Use half the water and repeat on the other side.
8. Blow your nose gently to remove excess water and mucus.
Once you're done, it is helpful to bend over at the waist (with top of your head pointed towards floor) and exhale to release any trapped water.
For maintenance: Some people benefit from rinsing daily as it opens up their sinus passages. Others may find it too drying. See what works best for you and contact us if you need help.
For colds: Rinsing 2 to 4 times a day can be helpful to flush out infection and liquefy mucus. Do this for the duration of your cold.
For allergies: Rinsing at least once a day will help you flush out the pollen. In addition, people get relief from using a hypertonic rinse.
For chronic sinus problems: Listen closely to your body. Everyone is different. Some people benefit from rinsing daily, while others do it once a week.
What time of day is best?
When you first wake up and at least an hour before bed (this allows your sinuses to drain before you sleep). If you have a cold, you may want to rinse during the day. If you have allergies, rinsing at the end of the day to clear your sinuses from pollen may be your best bet.
If you experience a bit of stinging, adjust the level of salt. People tend to use too little salt. Also adjust the water temperature - it may be too hot or cool for you.
