Unclogging a Drain Attached to a Septic System

Does anyone have any tips for unblocking a drain? It needs to be pretty natural as we have a septic tank (we don't want to kill the bacteria).

You can pour a box of baking soda down the drain and follow it up with a big pot of boiling water. If that doesn't work you can try snaking the drain.
