“I got this recipe from a couple of different ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) doctors. But was told years later, by still another ENT doctor, that the Vodka was not neccessary. I have used this for over 30 years now. After the kids had grown and moved out, I found out the one of my daughters had been drinking my Vodka and refilling the bottle with water. Good thing I didn't really need it. LOL (good thing for her, she wasn't caught)”

Directions

  1. Mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Using a bulb syring and holding your head over a sink or toilet bowl, flush the water up one nostril.
  3. If the passage ways are clear, the water should come back out the other nostril.
  4. Sometimes it will just come back out the same nostril.
  5. Some will go down your throat, but that is ok.
  6. I have found that the warmer the water is the better it works at loosening the gunk, but you don't want it to be hot.
  7. Some people use this like"Ocean".
  8. A nasal moisturizer.
