Eucalyptus essential oil
When you inhale it, eucalyptus essential oil opens up your sinuses and helps you get rid of mucus build-up. It’s naturally antiseptic, working to prevent respiratory and sinus infections. On top of all that, it 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 our 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-conditioning.
