Why a Nasal Wash?
The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that is one of our body's first lines of defense against disease. A nasal wash keeps this layer of mucus moist, clean, and healthy. Compared to other nasal wash techniques, using Neti Pot is easy. A nasal wash can be as routine as brushing your teeth.
Use Himalayan Institute Neti Pot Eco Starter Kit anytime to :
- Remove excess mucus due to congestion
- Rid nostrils of pollen and other allergens
- Cleanse the nasal membranes of dust, smoke, or other airborne contaminants
- Relieve nasal dryness due to air travel
- Improve flow of breath before doing relaxation or meditation techniques
A Healthy Nose
Breathing through the nose filters and conditions the incoming air. The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that traps dirt, dust, and pollen and moves steadily to the rear of the nasal cavity and settles in the throat where it is swallowed. Saline nasal rinses carry some of these impurities out of the body before they reach your stomach.
They also keep this protective layer of mucus functioning properly. If the mucus becomes too thick and dry or too thin and runny, it is easier for bacteria and viruses to penetrate the nasal lining and cause the swelling and excess discharge of mucus we call a “cold”. That’s why gargling or sniffing a little salt water at the first sign of a cold is a staple of folk medicine and why health-conscious people in India use a small pot of saline to rinse the nasal passages. The Neti Pot™ continues these time-tested traditions of hygiene.

- Mix a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of Neti Salt in the Neti Pot with 8 oz. of warm water until the salt is completely dissolved.
- Shake the bottle of Neti Wash Plus Daily Boost and add 1/2 dropper-full to the prepared solution.
- Turn your head to one side over the sink, keeping the forehead at the same height as the chin, or slightly higher.
- Insert the spout of the Neti Pot gently into the upper nostril to create a comfortable seal.
- Raise the Neti Pot gradually so the saline solution flows in through the upper nostril and out the lower nostril. Breathe through your mouth. If it drains out of your mouth, lower your forehead in relation to your chin.
- Once the solution has flowed through, face the sink and exhale through the nose to clear out the nasal passages.
- Refill the Neti Pot and repeat with the other nostril.
- Do one or more of the recommended exercises to drain the remaining saline.
The key to the nasal wash is holding your head in the proper position. Lean over the sink so you are looking directly into the basin, then rotate your head to the side so that one nostril is directly above the other. The forehead should remain level with the chin or slightly higher.
Gently insert the spout into the upper nostril so that it forms a comfortable seal. Keep your mouth open and raise the handle of the Neti Pot so that the solution enters the upper nostril and drains out through the lower. If your head is rotated correctly and tilted at the proper angle, you can breathe comfortably through your mouth while the saline drains through the lower nostril. If the forehead is significantly higher than the chin, the saline will drain into your mouth.
When the Neti Pot is empty, rotate the head so you are looking into the sink and exhale through both nostrils to clean them of excess mucus and water. Use tissue to catch any excess mucus.
When both nostrils are clear, mix another batch of saline solution in the Neti Pot and repeat the procedure on the other side. Remember to adjust your head so that the saline solution flows freely out of the lower nostril. After the pot is empty, clear the nostrils as before.
After the Nasal Wash
You may want to do a few simple exercises to expel any saline solution remaining in your nose. You should always do exercises to expel the nasal wash; you may also need to do exercises 2 or 3, or both.
Exhale vigorously through both nostrils while holding your head over the sink. Quickly drawing the abdomen toward the spine with each exhalation will make your exhalations more forceful. If you exhale into a tissue, be careful not to pinch the nostrils closed while exhaling.
- Forward Bending
Bend forward from the waist far enough so that the top of the head is pointing toward the floor. Hold this position for a few seconds, then return to standing. Follow this movement with a few exhalations.
- Alternate Toe Touching
Place your feet 2 to 3 feet apart. Raise the arms out to the side at shoulder height. Slowly bend from the waist and bring the left hand to the right knee, shin, or foot (whichever you can reach without straining). Reach up toward the ceiling with the right hand; turn the head gently and look toward the raised hand. Hold this position for a few seconds. Come back to standing and repeat the movement to the left. Exhale through the nose. When you've practiced this routine a few times, you'll find it takes less time than brushing and flossing your teeth.
Remember, a nasal wash is not a substitute for medical treatment. Anyone with chronic inflammation of the nasal passages or other ear, nose, or throat disorders should seek medical attention.
