Nasal Sinus Wash

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Lightly Toasted

A great home remedy prescribed by my ear, nose & throat specialist for sinus headaches, congestion, colds, and allergies. The salt water clears the "gunk" out. The baking soda soothes irritated membranes, and the glycerine soothes and moisturizes.

No one should use a nasal flush with tap water. Please boil it first or use distilled water. If contaminants get into the water it can cause serious illness, sometimes fatal. I use a nasal wash faithfully, but I don't use tap water since I heard on the news that people were dying due to bacteria in tap water.
