Neti Pot ~ Free Offer!

Free Neti Pot

I took advantage of this offer a few weeks ago... I THINK it's still valid. I went through the process (except for actually submitting) to check and it worked for me.

I had heard of Neti Pots and had been tempted to pick one up and try it. But I'm not big on spending money on something until I know for sure if it works! A totally free offer (free shipping too!) was fabulous!

Our whole family has a cold this week. This may be the weirdest pregnancy symptom anyone has ever complained about, but when I am pregnant, I seem to produce snot by the bucket load. That's wonderful information to share with the world, isn't it? ;) I think its a sign that I am getting old that I have no problem sharing this with everyone....

Anyway, when you add the fact that I am very limited in what medicines I can take to the Niagara Falls that is my nose whenever I have a cold while pregnant, I was all too ready to try this Neti Pot. Its drug free and basically just flushes out the sinus cavity with a saline solution. Some people with allergies use a Neti Pot regularly to help with their symptoms.

Using the Neti Pot felt weird. Not painful but weird. When I was done, I wondered if this was a bad idea because I was left with that somewhat uncomfortable feeling that you have after swimming under water if you didn't plug your nose. But after about 30 to 45 minutes, I realized that annoying sensation was gone and my sinuses were totally clear. I was breathing totally free of congestion and my nose was not running.

I am officially a fan of the Neti Pot! Just had to share.... =)

I LOVE our Neti pot, too! Do you want a great tip? Add one drop of eucalyptus oil to the salt water and it will clear out your whole head! Soothing and refreshing, in my opinion, once you get past the undeniably weird feeling. ;)

oh... good idea Amy!

I just wanted to report that here it almost 5pm and I have had no congestion all day! I only wish my poor girls could use it too! There are so stuffed up! I've got the humidifier running with a little eucalyptus oil in that so hopefully they get some releif soon too.

I love mine, too. It does take some getting used to! The first time I tried it, I couldn't figure out how to swallow, so I was just leaning over the sink, drooling. I was a sight! But after a couple of times, it's a peice of cake. We could use another one. (I want my daughter to use it, but she's a bit grossed out about using mine- I don't know why) so I'm going to check out that link, thanks!

I love the neti pot, but dislike using it. I force myself because I know that it does help. My husband almost gags at the thought of using one, and it cracks me up!

Thanks, Amy, for the tip. I will be trying it next cold!

I'm a fan of the squeezy bottle instead of the actual neti pot. Yes! It's a great help, especially in the high, dry climate where I live.
