nose bidet
 n.— «An audience member at the Oprah show knew what it was and she said it is a neti pot or a nose bidet. She told Oprah that she used to use one when she had allergies in order to help irrigate her nose and reduce the amount of pollen in it.» —“Neti Pot—Nose Bidet—Dr. Oz visits on Oprah TV Show about Nasal Irrigation Pots” by Nicole Wilson Best Syndication Apr. 27, 2007.

  1. Where do I purchase a nose bidet?

  2. I watched the Oprah show on yesterday and would love to know where to purchase the nose bidet for my father who suffers from sinus headaches everyday. Please help, he is 70 years old and nothing has seemed to help him in years

    I am from Canada, and I could not find the neti pot where I was from. I spoke to a co worker about it and another co worker over heard. She used to be a nurse for over 20 years. She said that she does the same thing with warm salt water and a small teapot that she purchased in chinatown. One with a spout to fit in your nose. I found a small japanese soy sauce holder in my home, and tried it. It is wonderful and I am so glad that I found this container and it didn’t cost me a dime.

    For everyone searching for info about a “nose bidet” keep in mind that it is a brand new nickname for a neti pot. You should be asking for either a neti pot or a nasal irrigation kit when you go to the drug store.

    I wondered why my site (http://matthewcox.org) was getting more hits than usual when I discovered that Oprah had featured a neti pot on her show. People started coming to my site looking for the info and pictures on making a neti pot out a water bottle.

    I’ve been using a neti pot or “nose bidet” now for several years but the first time I tried it was no fun at all so it sat on my shelf collecting dust for a couple of years. Now it’s one of my best friends.

    I’ve used just about everything for my bad sinuses, sprays, netti pots and homemade stuff, and found nasal washes to work the best. I’ve tried a few, but found a brand called SaltAire Sinus in particular to be my favorite as it has a built-in pump, so I’m not dumping into my nose, but rather shooting up into it. The angle makes a huge difference in clearing sinuses, plus it’s so much easier to use. I recommend to anyone with sinus problems.

    We too saw the bidet on the Oprah show with Dr. Oz. Have been trying to find one ever since. I will now try the drug stores with the info I have just read on this site. My husband has problems with his sinuses and being on coumedin is restricted to what drugs he may use. I believe this may solve the problem.

    This sounds like what I need as every morning I go thru lots of sneezing and a runny nose
    and seem to have a post nasal drip as well
