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 the Neti Pot is easy. A nasal wash can be as routine as brushing your teeth.
Use it 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
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.

About The Himalayan Institute
The mission of the Himalayan Institute is to offer knowledge, training, and the environment to realize one's full potential and bring a qualitative transformation in ourselves and in the larger world of which we are an integral part.
A leader in the field of yoga, meditation, spirituality, and holistic health, the Himalayan Institute is a non-profit, international organization dedicated to serving humanity through educational, spiritual, and humanitarian programs. The Institute and its varied activities and programs exemplify the spiritual heritage of mankind that unites East and West, spirituality and science, and ancient wisdom and modern technology.
Commitment to Sustainability
The Himalayan Institute is committed to sustainability as an expression of yoga in action. Sustainability is an understanding that we are profoundly interconnected with the natural world, both materially and spiritually. By embracing this understanding, we can live in harmony with our environment and help to heal the planet.
This commitment begins with stewardship of the ecological balance and spiritual vibrancy of our flagship campus in Honesdale, PA, and extends to our humanitarian projects abroad in Cameroon, Mexico, and India. They endeavor to integrate their mission, operations, and programs to encourage creative, meaningful, and lasting sustainability. This is expressed in measurable and ongoing attention to the conservation of energy, water, materials, and biodiversity. The Himalayan Institute encourages their entire community, both residential and online, to join the effort, so that we can all learn from each other while bringing spirituality into action.
In 2010, they completed installation of the largest solar thermal hot water system in their region which heats about 1,200 gallons of water a day and generates more than 184,000 kilowatt hours annually, saving more than 3,600 gallons of propane each year.
Himalayan Institute is retrofitting all of their campus toilets to low-flow models. This measure will decrease toilet water usage by more than 60% as many existing toilets are from the 1950's.
Himalayan Institute is planting hundreds of thousands of pongamia trees worldwide. Pongamia helps to cool arid land as well as offset carbon-dioxide emissions.
