I have had some major congestion for the last week or so. My poor sinus ache and I’ve got a hacking cough thanks to that lovely post nasal drip. After a week of suffering, I finally plucked up the courage to purchase a neti pot on my grocery run yesterday. The neti pot is used to clean the nasal passages by rinsing them out with warm salt water. It’s like saline nose spays except that it runs out the other nostril instead of just wetting everything to drip down the back of your throat. My first attempt wasn’t the greatest, and I quickly had to add more water to keep it from burning. Hopefully after a few more days I’ll become a little more adept at the process and start to reap the benefits of clear nasal passages.
