The Neti Pot is a simple way to clean your sinuses and get rid of infection-causing bacteria. Neti Pot use helps relieve colds, allergies and sinus infections and is associated with stimulating the Ajna Chakra (third eye).

1. The key to the Neti Pot is using a saline solution mixed with warm, pure water.

2. Dissolve the salt in the water and pour it up one nostril (over the bathroom sink).

3. As the solution moves through the nasal passage to the other side and into your throat, spit the contents out.

4. Then pour into the other nostril.

You can mix your own nasal irrigation solution with equal portions of pure non-iodized salt and baking soda (for buffering). Enjoy the benefits of this ancient healing technique!
