Hooray, Spring! The sun is out and it’s warming up. Trees are blossoming and flowers are pushing out of Earth, raising their little faces to the sun. Fellow Sunbirds, it’s time to start enjoying all of our favorite outdoor activities again so let’s not let seasonal allergies keep us in. I’m moderately affected by seasonal allergies and never use meds, instead I focus on these four simple steps and they work!

coconut oil, sea salt and neti pot 

1. Use a Neti Pot 3-4 times a week.

I know so many people that try the neti pot once and it burns or they “feel like they are drowning” and they dismiss it as not for them. The main reason neti potting feels uncomfortable is that users aren’t adding enough sea salt in the water. You need more salt than you think. Here is how to use the neti pot properly.

How to Use a Neti Pot (the right way!)

Boil water. Pour water into clean neti pot. Add 1/4 teaspoon sea salt. Let it cool to room temperature. Lean over the sink. Pour saline mixture into one nostril, and clear your throat to bring it through your mouth or allow it to run out of the other nostril. Repeat on the other side. Then bend over and allow any extra water to drain from your sinuses. Blow your nose.



2. Keep your mucous membranes moisturized.

Put a little bit of pure sesame or coconut oil on your pinky and stick it up your nose! Rub the oil around inside each nostril, moisturizing the mucous membrane. It’s wise to keep your sinuses moist (just like skin) rather than drying out with medications. If the membrane dries out and cracks, bacteria, dust and pollen enter easier! In Ayurveda we call oiling in the nose Nasya, and use it to cure many ailments from congestion to insomnia.
