    I Love my neti pot! I use it every morningI I use a combination of epson salt and vitamin C powder with warm water. Sometimes I use zinc tincture, but only if I’m ill. I swear by it…don’t know how I use to breathe without it.

    That regimen sounds intense, bezmyaso. I’ve only bathed in Epsom salts. It sounds scary to me. I imagine your solution is fairly dilute. Could you give proportions? Is your C powder buffered?

    I’ve had success with zinc lozenges. It makes sense that infusing the nasal passages would help at cold onset. Thanks.

    Update: I did some research: Epsom Salt is mentioned on several neti pot sites. But it is a laxative if consumed. The FAQ linked below claims that Epsom salt is all the same, even in bulk from your home center, but I’m sure someone, somewhere is selling some pure organic crystals. I’ll give it a try.
