  • 1/2 cup fine salt (see notes)
  • 1/2 tablespoons baking soda


  1. In a small mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the salt and baking soda.
  2. Transfer to an airtight container.
  3. Use 1/2 teaspoon of solution per 8 ounces of water in a Neti Pot.


  • It’s important to use salt with no additives—no caking ingredients or iodine. I prefer to use Himalayan Pink Sea Salt. You can also use Real Salt, which is available at most major supermarkets in the baking aisle.
  • Will last indefinitely if stored in an airtight container.
