Yesterday afternoon, my nose dripped constantly. I felt like a toddler who needed to wipe her nose. It wasn’t really mucous, just clear liquid, but geeze Louise it was annoying.
This morning I pulled again, this time in the shower. I found myself forgetting to swish, just holding it in my mouth, but then I’d start up again. I didn’t time it today, but I guessed that the entire thing took at least 15 minutes, given my average showering time. AND I remembered to spit in the toilet!
Again I felt more post-nasal drip during the pulling, but had no extra mucous during my time at the sink. I did see, though, that the buildup I had noticed around my upper gum line was almost gone. However, my lips are strangely dry. It’s strange because that usually happens with weather changes and in combination with the backs of my hands, my legs and/or my face drying too, and none of them seem to correlate with this. It’s also more my upper lip, whereas I’m used to my lower lip being the drier one.
Last night I again had a little mucous to spit out that was hard and dry. I believe the oil is softening bits held in, or stuck to, my sinuses and tonsils from a cold I had last month. Interestingly though, this week I have had very dry lips so the benefits of the oil don’t seem to extend past the mucous membranes they contact.
Same pattern as yesterday, pulled in the shower, and remembered to spit in the toilet. Tomorrow I plan to wash my hair, and I see that as a potential problem in terms of tilting my head, etc., but we’ll cross that bridge then.
No extra mucous today, still dry lips, but my teeth are smooth feeling. Why didn’t I take a teeth-selfie to compare color after all this??
