Epsom salt bath is a gentle and natural way to get relief from colds, congestion and sinus pressure. It can also give relief from aches and pain and improve sleep quality.
Likewise, people ask, what kind of salt do you use for nasal rinse?
It is best to use a pure, non-iodized salt, such as Neti Salt™, which is pure sodium chloride. Other minerals found in sea or table salt can be irritating to the nasal passages. Use a level ¼ teaspoon for finely ground salt (such as Neti Salt) or up to ½ teaspoon of coarser ground non-iodized salt.
In this manner, can nasal irrigation be harmful?
Nasal irrigation is generally considered to be safe, but a small percentage of regular users experience mild side effects such as minor nasal irritation. People whose immune system isn’t fully functioning should ask their doctor before trying nasal irrigation because they are at greater risk for infections.
