The ultimate neti pot! Yogi's NoseBuddy® is used daily by thousands of satisfied people, worldwide
It rinses efficiently and is easy to use both for adults and children
Available in blue, green and purple
Measuring spoon for salt included
Rinsing the nose with lukewarm saltwater is a traditional yoga method and an old folk remedy that has found its way back into our homes
It is recommended by many doctors and ear- nose- and throat specialists
The water flows in through one nostril and out the other, cleansing the nose and nasal cavity
Regular nasal cleansing (neti) can prevent and relieve nasal congestion, colds, flu and sinusitis
It can also be a great help against allergy and asthma, as well as snoring
In addition, nose cleansing sharpens the sense of smell and gives mental clarity
At Scandinavian Yoga and Meditation School we have taught neti for more than 40 years
Our long experience with neti has laid the foundation for the unique and practical design of NoseBuddy
Easy to use The salt and water is mixed directly into the jug. With the measuring spoon for salt and measuring mark for water, you always get the right salt concentration (physiological saline 0.9%). This makes neti a pleasant experience
Rinses quickly, gently and effectively NoseBuddy's long spout and large volume gives the water a good flow. Therefore it rinses thoroughly, even if you have a cold
Light and durable Ideal at home and when travelling. The pot weighs only 120 grams and is unbreakable
Clear and detailed instructions Includes how to, in the best possible way, blow and dry your nose after the cleansing
This is important for optimum effect, especially in case of colds and sinusitis
How to Use Yogi's Nosebuddy
Rinse the pot and spoon with clean hot water prior to using the first time
1. Put one level measuring spoon of salt (4.5 g) in NoseBuddy
Use fine-grained table or cooking salt – preferably one free of additives, such as iodine or anti-caking agents
Coarse-grained salt may be used, but make sure it fully dissolves
We recommend using rock salt (from mines), since some people may experience reactions to sea salt, such as a stuffy or runny nose
2. Fill the pot with clean lukewarm water up to the mark (0.5 litre).
Boil the water first (for 1 minute) and let it cool down to a comfortable temperature (lukewarm/body temperature) – or use distilled or sterilized water heated to lukewarm
If you are on a location with temperate climate and tap water of high drinking quality, and you choose to use water straight from the tap – then always let the water run awhile (½–1 minutes) before filling the pot
On locations with poor–quality tap water, hot climate or strongly chlorinated water, we recommend always boiling the water prior to use, or use distilled or sterilized water
If you have dry mucous membranes (e.g. after a long flight) you can add a few drops of vegetable oil, such as almond/sesame oil, to the water
3. Stir the water until the salt fully dissolves
The water now has the same salt concentration as body cells. This is an isotonic solution (0.9% salt)
The correct water temperature and salt concentration will ensure a pleasant experience
4. Cleanse your nose
Insert NoseBuddy’s spout into one nostril so that it fits snugly. Breathe gently through your mouth
Lean forward over a sink
Tilt your head slightly to one side, with the pot following the same angle, so that the water runs in through one nostril and out the other
Pour half a pot in through each nostril
Gently blow your nose after cleansing to each side (see step 6)
If you nose needs more thorough cleansing, use a full pot for each nostril
5. Let the water run out
Bend forward, your head and arms hanging down loosely
Allow the excess water to run out of your nose
Dab with a tissue
If you’re familiar with yoga, you may enhance the effect by doing a yoga pose like the Clown or the Headstand*
6. Blow your nose
Stand up and gently blow each nostril separately. Avoid vigorous blowing
Finish with the Blacksmith’s Bellows breathing exercise
7. The Blacksmith’s Bellows
Sit with your back and head upright, place your index and middle finger on your forehead (see illustration)
Determine which nostril is most open and shut the other nostril, using either thumb or ring finger
Breathe in and out rapidly through the open nostril twenty times
Inhale fully and hold your breath for as long as is comfortable, by closing both nostrils. While holding your breath, let the air press gently in your nose. If congested, hold your breath longer
Finally exhale slowly through the same nostril. Repeat on the other side and do the whole sequence twice more on each side
For maximum benefit or when suffering from congestion, sinusitis, allergies or asthma, always do the Blacksmith’s Bellows* after nose cleansing.
Good to know
If the water runs out too slowly or it doesn’t come out through the other nostril
a) you may be pressing the spout too firmly into your nostril, thus preventing proper flow
b) you may be holding the spout too loosely in your nostril; thus the water leaks on that same side
c) nasal congestion may be interfering with the flow. In this case, keep the spout in your nose, with the pot tilted, for a few minutes, allowing the salt water to loosen the blockage. Then blow your nose gently, one nostril at a time
Repeat the procedure with your other nostril and keep changing from side to side until the water begins to run through, first dripping, then as a steady stream
If you have a cold, blow your nose with special care – inflamed mucous membranes are more sensitive. The unique construction of Yogi’s NoseBuddy, with its large volume and long curved spout, facilitates good water flow. This means that in most cases, your nasal passages can be cleared. If water runs down into your mouth Sometimes a little water may run through your nose into your mouth. This is of no consequence and could be due to nasal congestion. But if a lot of water runs into your mouth, you may need to adjust your body position by leaning further forward, tucking your chin closer to your chest or altering the tilt of your head. Don’t tilt your head too much to the side. Also remember to keep breathing through your mouth and avoid swallowing. If it stings This may be caused by too little or too much salt, or perhaps the salt has not dissolved fully
Always use the measuring spoon for adding the correct amount of salt and fill the pot to the water–level mark. Add the salt before the water
Stir properly, making sure the salt fully dissolves before cleansing your nose
The solution is correct when it tastes salty like tears
How often and how much?
Once or twice a day is recommended (morning/evening). However neti may be done more frequently to prevent an oncoming cold, clear nasal congestion or alleviate symptoms of sinusitis, asthma and hay fever. It’s also ideal for removing particles after exposure to dusty, smoky or polluted air. To reduce snoring, do neti before going to bed. For more thorough cleansing, use a full pot for each nostril. The positive effects of nose cleansing increase with regular daily use
Keep NoseBuddy Clean
NoseBuddy is used for personal hygiene and should therefore be kept properly clean. Rinse the pot with clean water before each use. After using, rinse pot and spoon in clean hot water and leave them to air dry completely
Regularly wash the pot and spoon by hand with a mild detergent or in a dishwasher (e.g. once a week) – more often if you add oil to the water. For hygienic reasons we recommend not sharing your pot. NoseBuddy is a long–lasting quality product, but if the pot gets worn or difficult to keep clean, it’s time for changing to a new NoseBuddy
