Saline nasal irrigation is extremely useful to cure a sinusitis or common cold as well as to bring relief to the symptoms of nasal allergy or hay fever. Nasal wash loosens the mucus and reduces swelling.
To make the saline solution, add 1/3 tsp of sea salt to 1 cup of lukewarm water (should taste like tears). Nasal rinse has a very easy form, if you sniff the salt solution up:
If you have tools for nasal irrigation, like an eye dropper or a clean baby nose syringe you can use them for dropping or shooting up the salt/water solution into your nose.
One of the most professional ways of nasal lavage is the use of a neti pot.
The neti pot is used in Ayurvedic medicine for nasal irrigation thousands of years. The method of nasal cleansing - known as Neti - is one of the purification techniques. A soothing, gentle stream of salt water, the same concentration as tears, flows through your nose, washing away pollens, mucus and germs. The neti pot looks like a small watering can with a narrow spout. Your neti pot should be right for your nostrils with a smoothly tapered conical tip at the spout end.
A neti pot is filled with lukewarm, salt water and the spout of the pot is inserted into one nostril. The water flows out of the other nostril.
Nasal irrigation usually restores normal nasal and sinus functioning.
There are several different recipes for the nasal rinse solution, but the base for the nasal-wash solution is always lukewarm salt water:
