Homemade saline nasal spray

Homemade Saline Nasal Spray



1 cup purified water or spring water

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 pinch baking soda


First sterilize a small cooking pot, amber glass bottles and a stainless steel spoon. Do this by bringing a pot of water to boil and then shutting off the heat. Place the bottles in the water and remove after a few minutes. Place on a clean surface. Repeat with the spoon.

Inside the same cooking pot, place the 1 cup purified water or spring water. Bring to a gentle boil, then shut off the heat. Add the sea salt and baking powder. Gently stir with the sterilized spoon. Let the solution cool to room temperature and then pour into the sterilized amber glass bottles. Screw on the nozzle lids.

Keep 1 bottle at room temperature. Store the remaining bottles and solution in the refrigerator. Discard any leftover solution after 3 days (at room temperature or refrigerated).



  • If you prefer you can just make a fresh batch each time you need it
  • Distilled water can be used in place of the boiled purified or spring water, and it does not need to be boiled.
