If you experience a lot of allergies through the seasons, I highly recommend giving one a go. There are a variety you can buy, I got my white ceramic one at the local health food store. You can also find them online. Like anything, use it in moderation. I use my neti pot when I am feeling blocked on one side- once in the evening and once when I wake up. It also keeps my nasal passages moist and clean, which can be a challenge when your frolicking in sandpits all day.
