Making Sinus Rinsing Solutions?

I am a judgment broker who a lot. Lots of folks feel a lot better after they rinse their nasal passages. These kind of rinses may prevent crusting and/or blockage within the sinus and nasal areas.

When one rinses occasionally, or once per day; The NeilMed company's premixed and very convenient single-use salt packs make make a lot of sense. If you purchase a box of 250, their salt packs cost about nine cents each; and the company includes two free sinus rinse squeeze bottles. And, Costco just started carrying the 250 packs, at under 8 cents each.

However, if one needs to rinse several or many times a day; they may soon think about making their own salt rinsing solution, to try to save some money. A few people have tried saline solutions for contact lenses, as it is available at every drugstore and sterile; however that sure does not save any money.

For most people, the water can be much more expensive to prepare and more of a hassle, than the always needed salt mix. When the water is not clean enough, there may be the possibility of getting infected. Sinus rinse water should be clean, preferably either bottled or distilled, or really filtered well. If one uses tap water, it needs to be first boiled and cooled, right before use.

I am lucky enough to own my reverse osmosis water filter system installed which includes a sub-micron sediment, active carbon, with a de-ionizing filter. My filter makes drinking water with zero parts per million of solids dissolved, I think it is good enough; and always microwave the water.

When you occasionally put additional ingredients in your sinus salt rinsing solution, like Manuka honey (up to a teaspoon, after your water is heated, because honey should not get overheated); it does not matter whether or not one uses prepackaged salt packets or makes their own rinsing mixture.

I recently began to use Manuka honey, as many people claim it is good for one's sinus health. While it's too early for me to share any type of conclusive benefit from rinsing with Manuka honey; it appears to be helping me get cleaner . It makes nasal rinsing a bit sweeter. The drawback is that, it is really messy and sticky, and it is a good idea to use honey only on a single sinus rinsing unit, and of course, the unit should get washed more frequently (and honey takes much longer to mix in than salt). I wish Manuka organic honey came in squeeze bottles, rather than a glass jar.

Some folks make their own saline sinus rinsing solutions, most often a single batch at a time. Making your home-made sinus rinse solution means a balance of water, baking soda, and salt. The baking soda makes rinsing more comfortable. If you use too little or too much of the ingredients, the rinse might burn as you rinse your sinus area. After the right combination is found, you shouldn't experience any burning sensation at all. To mix a single-use batch of your own nasal rinse, use a recipe such as this:

Always in a clean receptacle (possibly the rinse device), begin by using one cup of clean water, then add baking soda and salt. The amount to use of either, often needs some experimentation. Start with a 1/2 a teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. When you have done a few experiments, you may wind up putting in as much as a teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, depending on what feels right. It is best to use pure salt such as pickling, canning, or Kosher salt.

If you plan to make a big batch of nasal rinse, keep in mind that rinse water starts to go bad after about 4 days; and must be stored in your fridge. I'm very busy, and have decided to pay a bit more for their speed, uniformity, and convenience, of The NeilMed company's single-use salt mixture packets.
