Nasal Sinus Wash

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.

    I've been using a mix for awhile but decided to include glycerine. You can feel that the wash is smoother and goes through your nose easier. I found it in a bottle near the bandaids section (Rite-Aid) and it looks like clear corn syrup. I swear by nasal irrigating and use an attach. that goes on my Water Pick (designed for irrig.). Thanks Lightly Toasted, for posting, Roxygirl
