Any chemists here, amateur or otherwise?

I need to make a liter of 7% hypertonic saline. Does anyone happen to know the recipe for such a mixture? How much salt specifically? Many thanks.

Make Your Own Hypertonic Saline Solution
Here’s the recipe we recommend for a hypertonic saline solution for irrigating your sinuses:

1 liter (quart) of bottled water (distilled is preferred); boiled tap water is also acceptable
2-3 heaping teaspoons of sea salt or Kosher salt. DO NOT USE TABLE SALT AS IT CONTAINS MANY ADDITIVES
1 teaspoon of Arm and Hammer Baking soda (pure bicarbonate)
