My brother uses that technique. He uses a little vessel called a netti-pot
(or something like that) to pour water through his nasal passages.
I myself have found that bruising a fresh leaf of mullein, putting it into
a pot of water that's just at the boiling point, putting a towel over my
head and my head over the pot, and breathing the steam, works wonders as far
as desensitizing the sinuses to allergens.
