Making the Neti Pot Solution
The mucus membrane located in the nose can become irritated if you use tapwater, so try not to use it but use proper saline neti pot solution. For thepreparation of this solution, we have to use substances that match thebody cell and nose tonicity levels, and such substances are hypertonic orisotonic salt. One of these substances will have to be mixed with lukewarmwater in order to make this solution. Also know that iodized salt cannotbe used, since it causes a chemical effect like the hypertonic/isotonic salt. Forthe preparation of this solution, you will need 2-3 cups of distilled water, oneteaspoon of unionized salt and half a teaspoon of baking soda. In a boilingwater, you should add one teaspoon of iodizes alt, like kosher salt or seasalt, and half a teaspoon of baking soda. Stir this solution until ready. Thisis a great remedy for a sinus infection, which can be even better if you add5-6 drops of hydrogen peroxide, 2-3 drops of grapefruit seed extract, 2-3 dropsof the garlic oil and 1/8 teaspoon of finely crushed garlic.
