Clear nasal passages: To clear nasal passages and sinuses. They can rarely cause serious infections, however, so use distilled water rather than tap water, and clean the pot and allow the pot to dry between uses. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2011/12/19/143960631/second-neti-pot-death-from-amoeba-prompts-tap-water-warning.
