The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that is one of the bodys first lines of defense against disease. A nasal wash keeps this layer of mucus moist, clean and healthy. And compared to other nasal wash techniques, using the Neti Pot is much easier, simpler, and quicker to do. Use it anytime to: -remove excess mucus due to congestion -rid nostrils of pollen and other allergens -cleanse the nasal passage of soot, dust, smoke or other airborne contaiminants -relieve nasal dryness due to air travel -improve the flow of breath.
