Garlic nasal rinse

 

Nety pot is the most popular nasal irrigation method. The addition of garlic can be helpful for sinuses congestion because it flushes away the mucus and garlic adds its disinfection properties. Studies demonstrate that people suffering from daily sinus symptoms found relief from using the Neti pot or other nasal irrigation systems.

Ingredients

0,5 lit of water
1 teaspoon of salt
1 clove of garlic

Preparation

Take one clove of garlic, peal it, chop it, and put aside for 15 minutes on a small plate (15 minutes are needed for garlic to release its active compounds).
In the meantime put water in a pan, add one teaspoon of salt. Bring water to boil. Take the chopped garlic and put it into a strainer, pour over half a cup of boiling water. Collect the fluid in the Nety pot an wait for it to become luke warm.

Use the Nety pot and flush your nose over the sink (the water enters one nostril and exits the other nostril). Do it once per day.
Make sure you do not use warm water, and no pieces of garlic are in the rinse.

A garlic oil capsule can be used instead of fresh garlic, you can puncture a soft capsule and add one drop to the boiled water.

Note: Always use boiled water!
