Tis the season!!! NO, not the HOLIDAYS! Cold and flu season! (Well, ok, so it’s not as much fun as giving out presents and making special dinner with mom and grandma.)
Did you get a cold yet? Do you have one now? Do I have some good news for you!
The Neti Pot!

Have you heard about it? It’s so great. I have used other types of nasal rinses in the past, but this is the best one I have ever tried, hands down!
Ok, I understand the idea can seem kind of gross. (Do it alone in the bathroom! LOL) But, it really does work.

The original…since 1972
The Neti Pot naturally cleanses, refreshes, and protects the nasal passages, one of our body’s first lines of defense against illness. Recommended today by doctors and pharmacists worldwide, the Neti Pothas been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to alleviate sinus and allergy problems. The Himalayan Institute introduced the Neti Pot over 35 years ago, and we currently offer
a full line of high quality products to support a complete sinus cleansing system.

Neti Pot is great not just for cold and flu season- though if you are a first time user, or are skeptical- really, what have you got to lose when you are already miserable?
It is all natural, no drugs, no chemicals.

The Neti Pot can keep your s nasal passages clean, moist, and healthy. Did you know that our nasal passages are one of our first lines of defense against getting sick? We as moms, parents, (and Pre-School teachers!) know that while kids don’t share much, they share their germs! Little must have coughed on me 10 times today alone…and how many of you get snot on the leg or pants at least once a week? (You know you do!) Yep, those cute little buggars are germ- balls! And mommy doesn’t get a sick day.
Neti Pot can keep us healthy, and prevent us from getting sick in the first place.

Five reasons why the Neti Pot makes sense

  1. Soothes dry nasal passages
  2. Gently washes away dust, pollen, and environmental irritants
  3. Offsets the effects of breathing dry indoor air (especially in winter)
  4. Removes excess mucus…naturally
  5. Helps you breathe freer when practicing yoga or meditation

We were sent the Eco Bioplastic Neti Pot Starter Kit to review. It comes it traditional ceramic, as well.
Eco Neti Pot
The new Eco Neti Pot makes nasal irrigation easy and comfortable. The trademarked lotus design and distinctive shape dispenses the perfect rate of flow to optimally cleanse the sinus passages. Made with Ingeo bioplastic.

It comes with everything you can possibly need to start nasal rinsing, and get on the natural road to better health! (and can I mention, lighting fast delivery! I am talking 2 days! If you have a cold, it will be here quickly so you can sleep again! If you don’t- why wait?)
My husband SNORES, good grief, does he….and Neti Pot rinsing reduces that greatly. At this point, I actually won’t let him into bed until he uses it, because we BOTH sleep so much better, lol…

Rinsing with saline solution is a time-honored practice in the Orient. Here in the West, the nasal wash has been used for decades as a means of treating sinus problems, colds, allergies, and post-nasal drip and to counteract the effect of environmental pollution. Those practicing yoga and other meditative disciplines use the nasal wash to ensure free air flow through both nostrils.

Breathing through the nose filters and conditions the incoming air. The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that traps dirt, dust, and pollen and moves steadily to the rear of the nasal cavity and settles in the throat, where it is swallowed. Saline nasal rinses carry some of these impurities out of the body before they reach your stomach.

The Himalayan Institute has a full line of natural products to keep you healthy. (They even have a Healthy Travels product which this happy traveler needs to read into!!!)
Bloggy Buddies, you know I love you, but I just can’t upload a video of us using the Neti Pot…best to leave that to those with more self-confidence then I! 🙂 I do want you to see how it’s done, though, so you will know it’s not scary, lol.
