THE ORIGINAL CERAMIC NETI POT!
The Himalayan Institute introduced the ceramic Neti Pot in 1972. Our trademarked lotus design and distinctive neti pot shape dispenses the perfect rate of flow to optimally cleanse the sinus passages. Made with lead-free ceramic and food-grade glaze. Using a neti pot:
- Soothes dry nasal passages
- Gently washes away dust, pollen, and irritants
- Removes excess mucus naturally
How To Use a Neti Pot:
1. Mix a 1/4 teaspoon of finely ground non-iodized Neti Pot Salt in 8 oz of water. Use the purest salt available because impurities in the salt in the Neti Pot solution can be irritating. Colloidal silver or diluted wild oregano can also be added in case of sinus infection.
2. Lean forward and turn your head to one side over the sink, keeping the forehead at the same height as the chin, or slightly higher.
3. Gently insert the Neti Pot spout in the upper nostril so it forms a comfortable seal.
4. Raise the Neti Pot gradually so the saline solution flows in through your upper nostril and out of the lower nostril. Breathe through your mouth.
5. When the Neti Pot is empty, face the sink and exhale vigorously without pinching the nostrils.
6. Refill the Neti Pot and repeat on the other side. Again, exhale vigorously to clear the nasal passages.
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. And compared to other nasal wash techniques, sinus Neti Pot use is easy. A nasal wash can be as routine as brushing your teeth.
Use a neti pot 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.
What the Experts are Saying:
"The Neti Pot alone has helped more people than any other modality I use - with consistent use the results can be dramatic."
- Carrie Demers, M.D., Medical Director, Center for Health & Healing, Honesdale, Pennsylvania
"People with chronic sinus conditions should use a nasal douche daily, as it promotes drainage of the sinuses and speeds healing of inflamed tissues."
- Andrew Weil, M.D., Dr. Andrew Weil's Self-Healing newsletter

If you have a sinus infection, then you can add substances like wild oregano oil (dilute 7:1 in olive oil, then add 20 drops to your warm water and mix well) or colloidal silver (1 tsp) to the warm water.
If you are very congested, you can add 4 drops of regular wild oregano to your neti pot water - when you are very congested, you can't feel much in your sinuses! And the stronger dose of wild oregano will kill the infection faster.
My kids use the neti pot before bed if they have a cold and it clears out the sinuses so they can sleep well!
If you suffer from allergies, then flush your sinuses 1 – 3 times per day, take 1000 mg Quercetin per day and use the Similasan Eyedrops if you also get itchy, runny eyes. As well, boost your immune system by not eating sugar and taking vitamin C.
It's compact, extremely easy to use, and beautiful to boot. I like the fact that it's made out of ceramic (not toxic plastic or metal)and it's a convenient size to travel with. I bought one for me AND my daughter. I'll gladly recommend this to any of my friends.
