35 Comments for the Nasal Congestion Home Remedy


Okay, so used to have really bad nasal congestion. Ever since my childhood i could only remember being able to breath through one nostril, the other completely blocked, or both were completely blocked. So it got really bad when i was around 11 and i consulted a nose specialist. He said i had minor adenoids and that an operation was really unnecessary. so that was when i got hooked on nasal sprays and such which really only made it much worse because of rebound congestion.
NOW, for the solution:
Someone told my mum about this so i tried it.
You need:
1. A cup of warm water (not a level or two below burning, so you can inhale it)
2. Salt
3. Any ordinary eating spoon
4. A glass
1. Add a few pinches of salt to the warm water (you can adjust later on)
2. Stir with a spoon until it's dissolved
3. Put the spoon in the water and raise it up to one of your nostrils(close the other nostril). You will now breathe in the water, so just make sure it isn't too hot. The water should come out of your mouth and you spit it out. (i do this over a sink) If it tastes too salty, just empty the glass and refill and add less salt.
4. Repeat this step until the glass is about half full. You'll a lot of mucus and phlegm comes out, that's fine just keep blowing and what not in the middle of this exercise.
5. Repeat the exercise with the other nostril now until the glass is empty.
And you're done.
Do this once in the morning after you wake up and once in the night before sleep. You'll get immediate long lasting relief. I do it for 2-5weeks and then i have a cleared nose for at least 2+ years, however it is good to make a habit of this exercise for a completely cleared nose. I'm now doing this exercise for the 2nd time in my life after 3 years and it's working great.
I am 15 from Australia, Victoria.
I really hoped that i made myself as clear as possible because this exercise is just so effective, and i understand how frustrating nasal congestion can be because it can turn a good day into a disaster.
Thank you :)

I have not been able to breathe for 2 months and had given up on the meds so i tried this and it worked well i can use one side of my nose i imagine it will take a few days considering how bad i am its a little odd but very affective next time i think i will add a little vinegar for more results. thanks so much

Didn't work for me, but I'll try it again. Had no problem snorting the salt water (could feel it also running down my throat at times) but I woke up at 4:58am from suffocation after doing this. Closed my mouth while sleep, but no air was passing through my nose. It was the worst case of nasal congestion I have ever experienced and had to resort to the nasal spray again. I plan on trying the salt water technique again. I'll let you guys know how it turns out..

Worked for me. It's 2:30 a.m. and couldn't sleep. Now I'm breathing clear and hope to get some sleep. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks! This worked for me. Kinda hard sniffing the water with a clogged nose but it eventually worked! :D

hope it this keeps my nose from getting stuffy. and I can now eat!!! :D


Oh wow, you are a life saver! I was seriously about to go out of my mind if my sinuses didn't clear up. I've only been able to really breathe through one nostril for almost 3 weeks. This worked instantly for me. I'm not completely clear, but at least I am able to blow my nose and get a little more air through. Thank you so much!!


Worked well. Thanks
