- Open mouth and start breathing normally.
- Turn your head slightly to the right, so that the left nostril slowly build up.
- Press the top of the Neti Pot to the left nostril and gently tilt – water must not seep out of the nostrils.
- For a few seconds, the water will come out through the right nostril – if you have a really stuffy nose, wait a bit to soften the mucus solution.
- Hold this pose and continue to breathe relaxed until all the contents of Neti Pot do not pass through the sinuses.
- Gently (!) blow your nose – strong blowing will repel water and mucus in the deeper in the sinuses
- Repeat all steps with the right nostril.
- Make sure that the same amount of Neti Pot solution is used in both nostrils.
- During the flushing do not talk, laugh or blow into / through the nose.
- When you take advantage of all the solution, gently blow your nostrils, lean forward – the nose is directed at the floor – and a few times gently blow your nose. Then lean more toward the floor – the nose is directed toward your knees. If you suffer from high blood pressure you can avoid leaning and blowing your nose while standing upright.
