Remedy Description

Boil two cups of filtered water

Pour into a clean, sealable jar

Add 1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt

Add a pinch of baking soda

Mix well, let cool to around body temperature. Pour about an eighth of a

cup into a smaller container. Using a bulb syringe, tilt your head back

and gently fill your sinus cavities. You can also simply pour the

solution into your hand and "snort" it. Drain and blow your nose. Repeat

every four hours.

Store the unused solution in the refrigerator. Discard after 24 hours.

You don't want bacterial growth re-introduced into your sinuses.

I have used this wash to prevent colds from taking hold, and to reduce

their impact.
