Take a peek at some neti pots and neti pot accessories.
Using a pure salt in your neti pot water is important. Your mucous membranes are naturally salty and a pinch of salt in your neti pot will help.
If you feel that the neti pot technique is not working for you and causing burning, consider:
- Adding a bit more salt.
- Adding a bit less salt.
- Adding a pinch of baking soda as this softens the water.
- Use filtered water as chlorine is an irritant and definitely can burn your nose.
- Warm the water in the neti pot to body temperature.
- Only neti when your nose is plugged up.
