Here's the recipe our ENT gave us for rinsing out Peter's nose. It is an awesome way to fight infection and mucus in the sinuses and Jacob and I have our own sinus rinse bottles for times when we are sick or congested.
Choose a one-quart glass jar that is thoroughly cleansed and sterilized, and fill with distilled water.
Add to the water:
- 2-3 heaping teaspoons of pickling or canning salt. (NOT table salt as it contains a large number of preservatives.)
- 1 teaspoon of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda (pure bicarbonate)
