How to make your own Homemade Neti Pot
Homemade Neti Pot
It’s common for most of us to first use a Homemade Neti Pot after learning about the technique. I think it’s how most new users start.
We hear about the Neti Pot through either the media (looking at you Oprah), a helpful friend, or surfing the internet. When we hear or read others speak on how it has helped them, we decide we want to try it for out for ourselves and see if it’s all that it is cracked up to be. I know this, as this is how I started. At work a colleague suggested a Neti Pot when I lamented about being ‘stuffed up all the time!’
I went back to my desk and searched the internet to find out more about it.
I figured it would not be easy to pick one up from a local mall. I would likely need to order one for delivery online, which could take a week. I was keen to get started right away so I began to look into making a Homemade version. As it turns out my initial research was spot on and I selected a good choice for a Homemade Neti Pot.
Ketchup dispenser Bottle – The ultimate Homemade Neti Pot known to man!
The great thing here was it was easy to find one. You may already have one at home (we had one in the kitchen), if not most stores sell them, often in packs of six for just a few dollars. To purchase some from Amazon Click Here
After finding my plastic squeezey bottle from a Kitchen drawer I cleaned it , filled it with cooled down boiled water and then added a tablespoon of refined table salt. I then went to the bathroom and started to blast it down my nasal passage. Pretty soon after starting my nose stung like pure hell!!. I later found out that table salt is really not a good idea for Neti Pot use. You need to use pure Sea Salt or a pre-prepared Saline Solution. I say this so you don’t have to make the same mistake as I did!
The next day I went to the store and bought some Sea Salt. I got home again. Repeated the steps I had picked up online and then experienced a Neti Pot doing what it does best – giving you that clear breath of unrestricted air through your nasal system!
As for the bottle I still have it today and I still use it occasionally. The great thing about the squeezy bottle is they are light to carry if you go travelling, so I use mine on business trips and holidays. The other key factor is you can gently squeeze harder to apply more water pressure as and when you need it.
They really are quite great for the job, until you move on to selecting a purpose made model.
