What is a neti pot?
Neti Pot is a saline nasal rinse therapy. Made of plastic, ceramic, stainless steel, or copper, it resembles a teapot but has a longer spout. Many have pointed out that it resembles the magic lamp in the story of Aladdin.
Fill the copper neti pot with saline and pour it into your nostrils. The solution will flow through the nostril, washing away excess mucus and accumulated dirt, and out the other nostril.Then do the same process with the opposite nostril. Neti pots usually come with a packet of salt, but this mixture can be made at home using 1/2 teaspoon salt to 1 cup water. Neti pots are usually sold at drugstores, health food stores, and online.
