The practice of nasal irrigation, known as Neti, has been used by practitioners of Yoga and Ayurveda in India for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Neti is one of six purification techniques undertaken prior to the practice of yoga to help prepare the body. It is referred to in the original yogic texts known as Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Gheranda Samhita. It is described in some length in the Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga by Swami Vishnu Devananda, published in the USA as early as 1960.
Some yogic teachers consider it valuable in cleansing the energy channels and balancing the right and left hemispheres to create radiant, energetic health and wellness, which is the foundation upon which a true yogic practice can come to fruition.
While there are advanced techniques using various herbs and herbal oils, the simplest technique, known as jala neti uses water (jala) for the cleansing process. Lukewarm water is used to gently open up the nasal passages. Use of a neti pot or vessel is recommended to ease this process.
Useful for removing dirt, pollen, excess mucous, and other irritants. Soothing and moistening to dried out nasal passages. Traditionally used as a purification exercise for the practice of yoga.
