My Favorite Things...

Photobucket

Sarah over at FiddleDeeDee has started doing a weekly "My Favorite Things" blog. I know I know, it looks kinda weird and creepy, but don't knock it till you try it folks! Recently, I stumbled across something called a Netti Pot. It kinda looks like a little watering can for a midget. You fill it with warm salty water, tilt your head, and pour it in your nose while you breathe through your mouth. It goes into your nasal passages and then comes out the other side of your nostril. It feels a little tingly and weird at first, but then you blow your nose into a tissue and you can TOTALLY BREATHE!!! It is so great to use for allergies, a cold, or just to clean out your sinuses. And no meds! It's amazing. I saw Dr. Oz using one on Oprah and I thought I'd give it a go since we have allergies pretty often around here. You can get them at any drug store in the pharmacy section for about $15.

That picture looks so odd :) I LOVE my netti pot!! My husband thinks I'm crazy but it really works and it doesn't sting. I was very congested when I was pregnant and I used it all the time!

I have been wanting to get one of these ever since I saw that Oprah piece!

By the way, how would you like to have been that model? "Sure we've got a modeling job for you...just stick this thing up your nose and try to look nice". Oh my word!

Thanks for participating in My Favorite Things!

Great picture - ha!

I use a 'neil med' (like neil armstron) device that is a little different than the netti pot - it is low pressure saline solution. Worked better for me than the netti pot.
