I used a Neti Pot!!

I feel like I’m at my wits end with this sinus junk.  Between my normal seasonal allergies (which it was my plan to get allergy shots this Spring, but pregnancy changed that!) and the pregnancy stuffiness (they call that rhinitis)- I’ve been blowing my nose non-stop for weeks and weeks.

Normally, I would be popping Mucinex for my sinuses, but again, pregnancy complicates that. I’ve had issues with breaking out around my nose from all the blowing, dry skin, sore nose, not to mention just being annoyed.

I’ve tried Allegra and Claritin, but neither have really touched it. I also added essential oils at night to try and sleep better. They helped but not completely.

I felt at my wits end with this, so I decided to try a Neti Pot.  It’s a nasal wash that you mix up and (it’s gross) pour into one nostril and it goes up into your sinuses and comes out the other side- flushing your sinuses.

I used it last night with the help of a video and tips from my friend Brianne.

And it helped SO much.

My problems aren’t entirely cleared up yet, but I’m going to be using this twice a day until they are. It’s safe, all-natural, and pretty easy to use (Best tip was to keep your mouth open and try to talk while you’re using it).

Just sharing this in case any of you are struggling with stuffiness.  I think this thing is going to be a game changer.  Two uses in and I’m already feeling 80% better.
