A nasal douche is useful in relieving congested nasal passages. It helps keep the airways clear, thins mucous and washes away irritations and mucous crusts.
You will need:
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup of warm water
Mix the ingredients together and flush into the nasal passages using the syringe you have been given.
Do this once or twice a day.
