It looks kinda like this:
I tried it out the first day I had it, following the directions on the box (which were surprisingly straight forward). Tilt head forward, seal pot against top nostril, twist head to stack nostrils, open mouth, slowly pour water into sinus cavities.
There is nothing quite like the sensation of drowning in a pool to pull you back to your childhood years...
I've never liked the feeling of getting water up my nose. I questioned why I was now doing it willingly... along with with whether or not I had knocked my head against something recently as my sanity was also in question.
Unwilling to give up so easily, I tried again. Same sensation, but this time it seemed like it was actually doing something. I got the end of the pot and called it good.
Everything smelled like water.
I don't even know how to describe it. It seems like a smell fabric softener companies would be trying to recreate. Everything just smelled clean. My sinuses burned, but it seemed worth it.
I've been at it for a few days now, and I think I'm going to stick with it. It does a surprisingly good job of helping to alleviate sinus headaches, which I'm quite prone to. I've gotten a little better at getting the water to flow through, and it burns less when I do it now.
What do you do to battle allergies and sinus infections?
