What’s in our Nasya Oil?
When you inhale it, eucalyptus oil opens up your sinuses and gets rid of mucus build-up. It’s also an antiseptic oil, working to prevent respiratory and sinus infections. On top of all that, this caring oil also dilates your lungs slightly, allowing you to take a fuller, deeper breath.
The sacred texts of Ayurveda name sesame oil as the best of all oils. It’s used in Naysa Oil for its warming and relaxing effect on the nervous system when inhaled. It’ll also counter the pain and irritation caused by constant nose blowing and dryness from central heating or air-con.
Gotu Kola Leaf
Gotu kola is a brain tonic that increases blood circulation to your brain, bringing relaxation to your body and mind. It can also boost your brain function, which may help combat that foggy-headed feeling that often comes with the cold and sinusitis.
Himalayan Rock Salt
Inhaling Himalayan rock salt can clear your respiratory pathways and help you breathe easier, particularly if you have asthma. It also reduces nasal congestion.
How to use Nasya Oil
For a sinus condition: Tilt your head back and drop the Nasya Oil into your nose. Sniff it up and massage the sinus areas at the same time. You’ll feel an accumulation of phlegm, which you should cough up and spit out.
For winter protection: Protect your nasal passageways by rubbing Nasya Oil inside your nostrils daily. This will help to prevent irritated sinuses and a runny nose.
Use Nasya Oil regularly in winter to protect your delicate nose and sinuses from irritation and inflammation. This is especially relevant if you suffer from sinus infections or seasonal allergies. It also makes for an effective pre-flight measure against ear and sinus blockages.
