Because I have a sinus infection, and the neti pot doesn't work for me. (It is like taking steroids for poison ivy this summer: the cure
was even worse than the disease.)



I'm too cheap to buy a neoneti pot that just sprays the water up your nose in a huge ass jet, so I was thinking maybe tea tree oil? I already have tea tree oil in a bottle for when the rabbit pees on her blanket. (It isn't like I'm underemployed and have a lot of free time or anything, and searching down a bottle to just put warm salt water in sounds sorta like a trial. The tea tree oil bottle is here right now.)

You gotta love the high pitched sounds resonating in your face as the sick sinuses equalize pressure after blowing your nose . . .

I'm thinking I might end up with an overly antiseptic feeling after the spraying. Not burning, necessarily. Just sorta like all-natural floor cleaner.

You could maybe try really diluted hydrogen peroxide (don't sue me; I'm not a doctor. Besides, I'm really poor) ...like a teeny bit combined with warm water, or continue doing the salt water thing, but the thought of shooting tea-tree oil up the nose...my eyes watered in sympathy just at the thought XD
