    Chef #1318338's Note:

    How to make your own neti pot saline solution mix (for sinus cleansing). This recipe makes 60 doses, equivalent to a box of mixture you might purchase at the drugstore. I determined the proper ingredients, ratios, and dose size from saline solution mix sold over-the-counter. I only recommend using this recipe if you're familiar with how neti pots work. Non-iodized salt is the normal ingredient for neti pot solution - the additional baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) seems to help sooth nasal passages. If you're uncertain about the baking soda, omit it and just use the salt. Simple, yet effective.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine the salt and baking soda in a mortar and pestle.
    2. 2
      Grind the mixture until very fine (the finer the grain, the faster it will dissolve).
    3. 3
      Use approximately 1/2 tsp per 8 oz of tepid water.

      Worked great and saves $$$ Thanks for posting!!! I boiled water first. As it cooled I put in the 1/2 teaspoon of salt/soda to disolve. Waited until it cooled a bit and then used.

      Just made some up using canning salt (finely ground to start with) and it works perfectly. I find that using this largely removes my need for hay-fever meds (Claritan). Thanks for sharing.
