Washing my nose.

The strangest thing is the pause. After filling the nose pipe with water that feels exactly the temperature of my skin and 1/4 tsp of salt, tilting my head winningly and putting the elegant blue ceramic nose pipe to the higher nostril, I wait, wondering where the water is going, whether it's going to work this time, and then just as I'm about to give up and blow my nose again to clear the blockage, it pours out of the other nostril. This is a very bad time to get the giggles.

I'm oh so glad that when I want to, I know how to wash my nose. Today my glands are a little swollen and my sinuses are a little tender and it is just the moment when sometimes, if I catch it right, I can wash it all away.

I'm also glad I don't have to use it every day.

I also have recently discovered nasal irrigation. However the product that my doctor recommended was Nasopure. It has helped me very much and I no longer get frequent colds. Unlike other products Nasopure allows you to be upright during the rinse which allows for a more effective flush. Their website is very informative too.

I also use Nasopure and must say I find it a pleasant experience. I like the ease of use and that my head positioning is upright. My nose feels great.

I'm happy for you people and your comfy noses but two is enough advertisements from strangers for a product I've never used, thank you.
