- Good Neti Pot But Remember To Inspect!
I was very pleased with this kit. The salt was good quality and the the neti wash plus was very gentle and didn't irritate my nose at all. The pot is very nice but my one complaint is, prior to use, I inspected the pot carefully and notices a small foreign piece of ceramic that was slightly glazed down on the inside of the pot. I gentle pulled it off and my fear is that if I hadn't it would have eventually dislodge on it's own due to the use of warm water (it was not on very tightly) and travel through the spot and into the nasal cavity (Not a good idea!) Stuff like this happens all the time and I just want to make other customers to be aware to inspect there pots carefully before use! ...more info
- Wonderful Product.
I bought this product because I had constant sinus pain in my nose and face. This product is truly wonderful and helps immensly. I would recommend it to anyone who suffers from head congestion. It takes a little while to get used to the water circulating through the nose , and I have swallowed my fair share of water while trying to perfect the technique. But it is not hard at all to to get it down pat and the results are heavenly....more info
- Neti Pot works
I have a sinus problem and want to avoid surgery. This product has been cleaning my sinuses. I can breathe better and it removes all the things that don't belong in your sinus. ...more info
- great, but some side effects
The neti pot did wonders for my cold and post-nasal drip, but if you are prone to ear infections or have sensitive inner ears, use this product with caution, as it can cause some moderate pain. Blowing your nose more lightly after use can lessen discomfort in the ears....more info
- drug free, simple remedy for your sinus congestion
Much better than drugs. Simple, fast remedy. Keeps nasal passages clear without the effect of drugs. Wish I had started using this sooner....more info
- Great Starter Kit.
This is a great starter kit.
First, a quick analytical review:
Pharmaceutical grade salt includes a tiny spoon for measurement. Using the pot twice daily, two rinses each nostril for about a month has depleted a bit over half of the salt in my container. The herbal tincture is an added bonus.
The pot itself is a tad awkward in that when full the shallow, wide design can lead to dumping water out the top rather than the spout. The solution is to wait for the sinus chamber to fill with water and start draining before tilting your head and the pot further. I mix a solution of lukewarm water in a separate graduated container and transfer it to the neti pot. Though I worried I would break the ceramic pot almost immediately, I don't like the idea of putting warm, plasticy water up my nose, so I went with ceramic and I still haven't managed even to chip it.
Now, the part that really matters:
This thing works. I suffer from what my doctor describes as "chronic sinusitis with acute allergic rhinitis". She's prescribed Astelin, Flonase, Clarinex, etc. None of these were effective and some of them led to nosebleeds, extreme sore spots and a virtual rainbow of ineffable nasal jetsam. These medications contain some pretty powerful drugs that I'd rather not be shooting into deep cavities in my head which, I assume, are pretty darn close to where I keep my brain. How about... lukewarm salt water? Nice.
When I've just used my neti pot I'm amazed at how clear my sinuses are and how acute my sense of smell can be. I breathe deeper and feel better. The cleaning process is not attractive but it is terribly effective. If you suffer from sinus headaches, uncontrollable sneezing fits, suffer from congestion, sinusitis, rhinitis etc., you owe it to yourself to try this product or one like it.

- I was sceptical, but I can't live w/o it now.
I have issues breathing clearly and went to an ENT to find that I have severe nasal allergies as well as sinus cavity problems and sinus polyps. The only solution for this is removal/surgery. I'm terrified of the idea of surgery, so I figured that I would give this a try.
This product has a learning curve. After a week of use, I finally got the hang on it and could use it to my satisfaction. I prefer warmer water and more salt than they recommend. If I didn't know better, I would say that using more salt makes the polyps shrink and disappear. At least, that is how it feels.
Even when I wasn't using the product completely "correctly", I had immediate relief and found that I could breath very well. One other thing that it has prevented is my usual sinus infection after visiting my parents and we've been back from their place for almost a week. I'm usually sick by now....more info
- Great for a chronic sinus sufferer
The product is fantastic. As someone who suffer(s)(ed) from chronic sinus pain and pressure it helps tremendously.
I know it seems strange, and don't be alarmed if it takes you a couple of tries to know how to use it right and get used to using it. But once you do, it is definately worth it!...more info
- Strange feeling, but worth it!
I have known about the Neti idea for a long time, but yeah, it was Oprah and Oz that lit a fire under my butt. I have had a cold and then sinus congestion for four months, so finally got my order in. The first thing I can say is that this is an absolutely beautiful little kit, packaged just perfectly for giving as a gift. I loved the quality and design of the pot itself, and the good size of the salt and zinc drops. The instructions are simple but adequate. As some people say it takes a try or two to get all the angles right and not panic when you feel water filling up your passages. (Anyone who didn't like to dive in swimming classes will know what I mean!). On top of that, I couldn't get it to work the first time because my sinuses were so impacted the water actually could not flow all the way through! So I did what I could from each side, and was kinda disgusted by the 'stuff' that it loosened up..later I tried it again and got a little further with the process. It was hard to believe but I felt better and the next day when I tried it again, there was already enough improvement for it to work perfectly on both nostrils. I am already convinced this is the answer I have been looking for, and just wish I had not waited so long to get started! We should all be doing our neti, right along with brushing our teeth...then maybe we wouldn't need a blue zillion cold and sinus products taking up a whole isle in the grocery stores!...more info
- Perfect (Yet Breakable . . .)
I'm buying this to replace its exact likeness after breaking it during a move. It's ceramic, so there are no sharp edges to scratch my nostils, like some of the plastic and metal neti pots do. BUT, it's ceramic, so it takes a lot of TLC. Also, the salt mix is perfect and the ceramic pot holds the heat of just plain tap water when I use it. I use one full pot of water for each nostril when I'm ill, but use half a pot per nostril daily when I'm not ill. It also removes sawdust, sand and dirt after I've been working in the garage or outdoors....more info
- Love this product
I could not believe the difference this product has made. I used to suffer from allergies. I took one Allegra and a spray of Nasacort every day. Now I take nothing. I use this product once to twice a week and it really works!!...more info
- Works better than expected!!
When I bought this product, I was skeptical, but it works much better than I expected. In fact, my sinus problems are soooo much better. I highly recommend this product. Don't know how I lived without it until now....more info
- Awesome Product!
this is an awesome product. Everyone I know that uses it, loves it. It helps with sinus issues, allergies, etc. Even my acupuncturist uses it every morning. It is a great product! ...more info
- One Scoop of Salt Will Do
It works and only one scoop of the salt is necessary. More than that will sting. Follow the instructions regarding the positioning of your head while cleaning your nostril. Otherwise, it DOES go to the back of the throat. Be consistent in use to maintain clear sinuses....more info
- Not so thrilled
I was excited to try the neti pot even though I have minor allergies to pollen but let me just say that the feeling of water flooding your nose and sinuses is rather uncomfortable. I had a pressure headache from my sinuses after using it and am not certain I want to try it again and that's despite following the instructions to make certain all of the water was out. Overall, it might be worth it if I had more serious sinus issues, but I don't. ...more info
- I would not believe the results if I did not try it.
Himalayan Neti Pot kit was such a good thing for me to buy. My nose is not so dry and it feels so much better. I some times use the salt and other times use the other product witht the salt that comes with it. I new salt helped sore throats by my grandma telling me but did not think of being able to use it in my nose. I have used spray even saline but this Nedi pot warm water feels so good going in and out of my nose. I heat my water at 25 seconds in microwave, it is just right for me. I am so glad I bought it and I use it every day. We live in AZ where it is dry most of the time. It also gets so hot in the summer. It is windy a lot and that also drys out your nose. I can breathe so much better....more info
- It Really Works!!!
I've been hearing about this thing for the past year or so and recently some people have recommended it to me because of my year-long allergies. I was at the end of my rope and decided to overcome my fear of drowning and buy a Neti Pot. It was so worth it! It's so easy to do and clears my head. I've only been using it a couple of weeks, but the difference is so pronounced! It can't hurt to try and I guarantee you'll love it!!!...more info
- neti pot
Works great, easy to use, i can actually breath by using this product,
i work in a very dusty Environment and my nose was always plugged,
Can't say enough about this. ...more info
- Neti pot rocks!
This Neti pot sinus cleansing kit has delivered more relief than anything I've ever tried for my nasal allergies. Wouldn't be without it. At night I can breathe freely through my nose - something I could not say prior to my regular use of this Neti pot kit. My doctor advised me to try this (she also prescribed Flonase, which I take at night). If you have ongoing problems with nasal inflammation and congestion, give this a try....more info
- Worth every penny.
This is the first review I have ever written because I really want people to know how helpful this little pot is. I usually have a head cold and sinus infections that start in November and last through April. Not this year though! I received my Neti Pot Starter Kit right at the onset of a bad head cold. Now, this really was the perfect test for this little device. Both my nostrils were completely clogged and blowing my nose would only help for a few seconds until my ears popped and then I was completely congested again. I used the Neti Pot and was amazed after the first use. My head cleared, my ears popped, I had my balance back, and I felt ALOT better. My head cold didn't disappear, but I never had to use any cold medicines or antihistamines. And most importantly, the cold and congestion didn't move to my chest like it usually does. I think it's important to mention that I am a pack a day smoker. The cold was completely gone after 10 days! I don't know if the Zinc drops that come with this kit helped or not, and I don't really care. I still use them and the Neti Pot twice a day now. This thing really works and it has improved my quality of life. The process is as easy as watering a plant and takes as long as brushing your teeth, don't be afraid. I plan on using mine everyday the rest of my life. I can't say that about many things. Ok, I hope that was helpful. One more thing, if you're going to buy a Neti Pot, please purchase one from The Himalayan Institute. Your money will be going to an excellent cause and you'll get the best Neti Pot out there. Happy breathing! ...more info
I love my neti pot. It works! I've reduced the medications I need to take during allergy season....more info
- Sinus Cleansing Kit
Awsome! You have to figure out how to use it correctly and then it is a breeze. Exellent for those allergy sufferers, like me and stuffy noses. Use before bed for a great nights sleep without a stuffy nose. Helps when sick and a faster recovery from sinus issues....more info
- SINUS RELIEF
I have been suffering from sinus problems for years. The Dr. kept giving me prescriptions, but they did not work very well. A friend told me to use a neti pot. I tried the neti pot and am happy to say, "MY SINUSES HAVE NEVER FELT BETTER"....more info
- Amazing product - relief at last
This product is truly amazing. It helps clear out accumulated mucus and opens up the nasal passages. I can now breathe easily through both nostrils. I've been able to give up the steady diet of Excedrin because of constant headaches; I've also give up Mucinex. You can really feel clean and refreshed after using this. I use twice daily, sometimes a third treatment if there is more accumulated mucus to flush out of my system. It only takes a few uses to get the hang of it. Read the directions because it's important that the water be warm, not hot and not cold. Extreme water temperatures can make your sinus problems worse. I strongly recommend this product. Thanks to Oprah and Oz for bringing it to my attention. ...more info
- Good investment
The product came right away and was well-packaged.
The actual Neti Pot is very easy to use since it: fits comfortably in the hand, seals the nostril effectively, and comes with clear instructions. This Neti pot is also fool-proof since you use everything in the pot in one nostril and then repeat the process in the other nostril (instead of having to know when you have used half of the solution and then switch to the other nostril, as with other neti pots on the market).
I cannot comment on the nasal rinse since I found out I am allergic to one or more of the ingredients in it (found out after purchase), and I also cannot say whether this brand of salt is superior to another, but I can say that the warm salt water does help clear out my sinus cavities and does help with unbearable congestion. I was seriously looking into having surgery on my sinuses, but I am glad that I no longer need to look into that option.
While this Neti pot is not a cure-all, it is a useful addition to my sinus/allergy care regimen, and I am glad that I made the investment.
I would definitely recommend buying this Neti Pot.
- Feeling great!!!
With allergy season in full swing right now, I have enjoyed the Neti Pot. I am not relying on allergy medicine as much. It is really a huge relief. I have 2 small children, and allergy medicine always leaves me groggy. This is a great alternative....more info
- Finally, I can breathe!
My kit arrived today and I couldn't wait to sit down and share my love for this product with those of you who are on the fence regarding the Neti Pot.
If you follow the directions in the box, and they're not complicated, it doesn't burn and it doesn't hurt. You get a bit of the water-up-the-nose feeling at first (like you just jumped in a swimming pool), but it quickly recedes.
I purchased this product because I couldn't seem to get over a cold and because I have persistent and serious year-round allergies. By "serious" I mean the kind of allergies that wake you up, sneezing, at 3 am and then keep you up. After a single use, I can tell that this little pot is going to drastically improve how I feel. When I read the reviews that say it works better after you've been doing it for awhile, I'm filled with glee because I cannot remember ever having breathed so easily. It's like I have a whole new nose. I can feel the increased resonance in my sinuses, I can smell better, and I can even hear better. I'm amazed and most of all, grateful. While it's true that, as an allergy sufferer, I may be more sensitive to the status of my ears, nose, and throat than most, I still think that if you're on the fence, you should give it a shot. My husband tried it right after I did and felt exactly as I did. I've also tried the saline squeeze-bottles you can get at the drugstore and they don't compare.
I never posted a review to Amazon.com before, but I feel no qualms about giving this nifty little pot five stars....more info
After years of sinus infections this thing has really helped me. I have to be regular with it, do it every day, more when I mow the yard or do wood work (anything dusty), but it really does help!...more info
- Amazing cure for sinus problems
I have suffered from sinus/allergy problems for years and always had to endure headaches from these problems. Once I received my Neti Pot and used it, the sinus headaches and dry, itchy nose went away. It is a faithful part of my morning routine. I highly recommend this product for anyone who suffers from sinus or allergy problems...more info
- Finally allergy relief!
I've been suffering with Allergic Rhinitis for 14 years. While flying in the Air Force I was required to medicate with nasal steroids to manage my allergies and reduce possibilities of ear block and rupture on decent. I'm now retired and studying medicine and know too much to willfully inhale or ingest most synthetic based meds if there's a plausible alternative. The trade off is that without the steroids I suffer debilitating attacks, sometimes weekly, all year long. This all stopped when I accepted the word of colleague and tried a Neti Pot. I believe that most saline solutions would help, but personally support the immune enhancing zinc compound included with the kit. It may take a few tries before you master the technique but once you do you'll be surprised by how quickly you complete the task. Try this product and enhance your health and quality of life with out risk of side affects. ...more info
- Finally, some relief!!!!
I have had problems with my sinus's for as long as I can remember. My doctor has tried drug after drug to give me some relief, all of which would work for a few weeks at best, then my body would adapt to them and they would stop working. I have been using my new neti pot for just a few days, and it actually killed a sinus headache! I'm so excited about this product, I'm buying one for my sister now, who has worse sinus problems than me. My only complaint about the neti pot is the fact that there is a learning curve to using it, at first, if you do it wrong, it is like getting pool water up your nose while swimming, but within a few days, I'm using it like a pro. I am going to be telling my doctor all about it on my next visit, so maybe he can spread the word to other people like me. If you have sinus problems that ruin your day, please try this item, you will be happy that you did!!!!...more info
- Everybody needs a neti-pot!
What a great product. Creared up a sinus thing that was going on for a long time. Even those family members that have used it, that don't have sinus flaws, say they can breathe so much better after using it. WE LOVE IT!...more info
- Using the Neti Pot.
It has really helped my sinus problem & an annoying cough from post-nasal drainage.I wish I had used it before....more info
- Nothing to measure the salt
Neti Pot - but the salt doesnt' come with a measuring spoon, so unless you want to steal the 1/4 tsp from your kitchen it's tough to use this salt in the shower. The individual packets are better....more info
- Interesting, but seems to work.
My wife wanted this, but I could not have cared less. But after using it a few times it seems to be useful. Works best if used in a hot shower so that the steam can help clear you out too. ...more info
- Took a few tries
Read the instructions carefully for the amount of salt to add. I made a mistake and used way too much, ouch! I was also so severely congested, I had to use the neti pot a couple times to get results. Since then, I try to use it as needed and it seems to really help. Received the product in a decent amount of time. ...more info
- Feel like giving this item 10 stars!!
Extremly effective for sinus problems. Even if you are not sinus medication, you can use it!
Little secret; after you do Neti for couple of weeks, you notice significant decrese in dark circle under your eye!!...more info
