For the Cleansing of Nasal passages according to the traditional practice of Neti.
Ancient Secrets Nasal Cleansing Pot is the ideal answer for cleansing nasal passages. You need only follow the simple directions inside to prepare the saline solution used to rinse through your nostrils. The gentle and effective technique of nasal irrigation is widely recommended by health practitioners worldwide as a wonderful way to improve your overall feeling of well-being and maintain radiant, vibrant health.
Many people practice Neti on a daily basis to keep their sinuses clean and improve their ability to breathe freely. Most find it a soothing and pleasant practice once they try it.
If you are one of the many people who find that your nasal passages are blocked as a result of the effects of pollution, dust, pollen and other irritants, you may find this simple cleansing technique of invaluable benefit to you.
The practice of nasal irrigation, known as Neti, has been used by practitioners of Yoga and Ayurveda in India for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Neti is one of the six purification techniques undertaken prior to the practice of yoga to help prepare the body. It is referred to in the original yogic texts known as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Gheranda Samhita. It is described at some length in the Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga by Swami Vishnu Devananda, published in the USA as early as 1960. Some yogic teachers consider it valuable in cleansing the energy channels and balancing the right and left hemispheres to create radiant, energetic health and wellness, which is the foundation upon which true yogic practice can come to fruition.
While there are advanced techniques using various herbs and herbal oils, the simplest technique, known as jala neti uses water (jala) for the cleansing process. Lukewarm water is used to gently open up the nasal passages. Use of a neti pot or vessel is recommended to ease this process. Advanced practitioners may use this pot also for the herbal or oil administration (referred to as nasya) as well.
Useful for removing dirt, pollen, excess mucous, and other irritants. Soothing and moistening to dried out nasal passages. Traditionally used as a purification exercise for the practice of yoga.
Easy Usage Instructions
(see complete guidelines inside package):
- Prepare the saline solution and fill pot.
- Tilt your head to the side as shown.
- Insert spout of Nasal Cleansing Pot gently into the raised nostril creating a seal between Pot and Nostril.
- Raise the Nasal Cleansing Pot slowly to develop a steady flow of saline solution through the upper nostril and out the lower nostril.
- During the process breathe through your mouth.
- Upon completion, exhale firmly several times to clear the nasal passages.
- Reverse the tilt of your head and repeat the process on the other side.
If you are suffering from any disease or illness, please be sure to consult your health care practitioner.
I love my new Neti Pot. The design of it makes it much easier to use than my old one (that unfortunately broke), the nozzle doesn't go all the way into your nose but covers the whole opening which forces the water out the other side because air can't get in through the opposite side. At first I thought it was strange that the nozzle didn't fit (all the way into my nostril) but then I figured out why. I'm so glad my other Neti pot broke because this one is ace!
iHerb.com managed to pack this ceramic pot so that it arrived unbroken--a minor miracle. They also gave me the lowest shipping charge I've seen anywhere. The pot is very nice. The shape makes it easy to use, and the top prevents spilling. This pot was to replace another brand of pot that I bought in a local health food store. It was very pretty with a blue glaze, but after a few months I dropped it accidentally into the sink while rinsing it--it only fell a few inches, but it broke. I hope my new white pot will not break as easily. I like that this is the brand that was used by Dr. Oz on the Oprah Winfrey Show to demonstrate using a neti pot. I hope that this means it is a good choice. It was also the lowest priced pot available on this site. Thanks!

I prefer my clear plastic pot but I gave it to a friend. This does the job.

First one I have owned. I use with the sqaline salt, and pre boiled water. Made it to Australia without any breaking! Comfortable to hold, forms seal inside nostril. Worth doing some research if you are new. Best advice I learned, if it feels like water about to go down throat, gently tilt forehead forward. DO NOT SWALLOW AT ANY STAGE WHILE USING... apparently it affects ear pressure and can end up with blocked ear feeling for day or two. Go slowly. I only use half pot on each nostril. When finished, (after blowing nose) bend over, so you head is below knees, whilst in this position, lift head and also look from side to side. This will help drain any last bits of solution.
