Using a neti pot with a saline solution or salt water cleans the sinuses, but saltwater can leave the skin on the dry side.

Put Oil In Your Ear
Leave a few drops of hot oil in your ear at night. Sesame oil, mustard seed oil, or gear oil lubricates the Eustachian tube above and the lymph nodes of the uterus in the throat. Your lymphatic system carries your immunity. If the lymph nodes of the uterus become dry, you get swollen glands, which means the immune system is stuck in traffic. You want to keep the nodes oily so that the glands are more effective at getting rid of any harmful bacteria.
