Nasal Congestion Home Remedy Comments

2 Comments for the Nasal Congestion Home Remedy


I used about 1 and 1/4 cup distilled water(tap should be fine)
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
cap full of organic apple cider vinegar
(distilled white, or regular apple is fine)
I brought this to a slight boil, but removed it as soon as i saw the bubbles (you want the salt to dissolve, but you dont want to be snorting steaming water!)

I let it cool for a while, but since i am impatient(and very stuffy), i started adding small amounts of cold water to it just to get the temperature low enough to use.

I would suggest starting with the following, but you can go right to the goods if you're a traditional neti pot user:
cup one hand and scoop some water up, hold one nostril shut and snort the water up. it will feel a little uncomfortable at first but once you do it two or three times its is fine. repeat with other nostril. if it burns severely, add a little more water.

Now you are ready to fill up the baster. If the water sprays out, it is too hot. I was alternating by sucking up half cool water + my mixture. (which as transferred to a bowl)
tilt your head as far to the side as possible, and open your mouth. Begin to SLOWLY pour the liquid from the baster(or squeeze if necessary) into your nostril facing the ceiling. It should pour out the other nostril - DONT BREATHE WITH YOUR NOSE! if you notice more water is pouring out the side where you put the baster, then try to reposition it or squeeze it a little harder until it comes out the other side. Hope this helps!

Thank you so much, that did it!! i woke up this morning so stuffed up, didn't know what to do but i always rely in home remedies rather than drugs. so i found your home remedy and tried it right away since i had everything you mentioned. It worked!! i feel great now......i don't know if it'll come back but i will repeat that for sure.

thanks a lot once again.


At first I didn't think it was working but after a couple of minutes my nose was decongested :)
