How to Use a Neti Pot

April 18, 2023

“Allergy season is killing me.”

This is the refrain I have been hearing all week, from just about everyone I know!

And as always, I bug everyone I know to go out and get a Neti Pot. And then, you know – actually start using it.

And then I usually hear the same, “wait, can you remind me how to use that thing?”

So I decided to make a video.

What are Neti Pots, you may be asking?

They look like cute little teapots, but they are for cleaning your nose!

Neti Pots are an invention of Ayurveda, the ancient holistic medicine of India. And they work beautifully.

Any brand of Neti Pot will work, but I like this one because it is very lightweight and easy to travel with.

You mix a saline solution packet with the slightly warm, purified water (Goldilocks temperature – not too hot and not too cold) into your Neti Pot. Again, any brand will do but I personally use these.

Most important part of using a Neti Pot? Please make sure to use purified or previously boiled water! This is very important, to prevent any potentially harmful bacteria from entering your nose.

Wash your Neti Pot thoroughly after each use and let it properly air-dry before putting it away.

I use my Neti Pot several times a week and it has been a game-changer for me. I get sick much less frequently and rarely suffer from allergies. It’s also one of my top tips for strengthening your immune system from this post.

Check out this short video and let me know in the comments if you have any questions!
