Using a Neti Pot is a Healthy Habit
Rinsing the nostrils with a neti pot gently removes dried mucus and debris from the nasal passages, allowing the sinuses to drain freely and clearing the nose of accumulated dirt, pollen, mold spores, bacteria and viruses. It promotes freer breathing, decreases congestion, and deprives germs of an undisturbed place to colonize.
Recommended for sinus sufferers
Healthy nasal passages are necessary for the proper function of the sinuses. The sinuses are located above the nasal passages, and have outlets which drain into the nasal passages. If the outlets which drain the sinuses become clogged with dried mucus, the sinuses cannot drain properly, creating a situation which can lead to sinus pain and infection.

Nasal wash rinses away pollen and mold spores from the nasal passages, and supports the health of the mucus blanket, easing the burden on the respiratory and immune systems during pollen and mold season.
Recommended for frequent travelers
Breathing the dry, recycled air of an airplane cabin combines with the stress of travel to overtax the immune system, increasing vulnerability to germs. Using a neti pot supports the health of the nasal passages, supporting the body’s immune system and helping to minimize the chances of colonization of the nasal passages by pathogens.
