Yes, it's the same thing.
Normal Saline (called that because it is the same concentration of sodium chloride that blood has)
You need a quart jar with a lid.
Wash covered saucepan, teaspoon measure, 2 or 4 cup measure, a metal spoon and the quart jar with lid in hot soapy water and rinse well, the dishwasher works too.
Boil 6 cups of water in a covered pan for 20 minutes.
Pour 4 cups of boiled water into the clean jar.
Add 2 teaspoons of salt to the jar and mix well.
Cover the jar with lid, note the date and store covered in the fridge for not more than one week.
I actually canned mine in a hot water bath and am storing them in the linen closet with the first aid kit. That way I have it on hand. Never pour back what you haven't used. You will contaminate the whole jar.
