Minimize Our Impact on the Planet.

We recycle and reuse materials, reduce our packaging, source organic ingredients and refuse to make plastic products.

Neti Pots are Handcrafted in the U.S.

Our clay body is from Ohio. Old clay is mixed in with new clay and recycled. Every bit of glaze we make gets used. We gift flawed neti pots to friends who can’t afford one, but really need one. We keep waste to an absolute minimum.

Firing our neti pots does use energy. Scientists are doing experiments to find ways to make ceramics without heat. When they figure this out, we’ll be one of the first to do it.

Three Things We Believe are True:

  1. It’s better for the planet to keep our manufacturing here in the U.S. and support local small businesses.
  2. The way to ensure the purity of the essential oils in our products is to buy them directly from growers and farmers, not from middlemen or distributors.
  3. Ceramics are better for the planet than plastics. Some companies claim their plastic is biodegradable – a claim we feel is unsubstantiated. That, combined with the toxicity of most plastic, is why we have refused to make a plastic neti pot.

Most of our Packaging is Recyclable

We use rice packing peanuts instead of styrofoam. We wrap our products in corrugated cardboard instead of plastic. And while we haven’t found a way to go completely green, we are always striving to do better.

We use the Highest-quality Ingredients

We source the highest-quality ingredients as close to home as we can. Two key oils in our Sinus Rejuvenation Oil, however, inula and green myrtle are found only in France. Our certified organic French Atlantic Sea Salt has a mineral content that’s optimal for healing that we haven’t been able to find anywhere else.

We Are Always Looking for Ways to be More Green
