Nasya is one of the most powerful treatments in Ayurveda which work directly on the entire head region. Nasya is immensely beneficial for improving mental functions such as memory, retention and concentration. Nasya has been traditionally used to treat all diseases above the neck. Eye, ear, nasal, oral, brain and other related disorders can all be treated with Nasya.
Nasya Nose Drops
- This method of administration of Nasya oil is called Marshya Nasya
1) Place a drop of Nasya oil on the little finger and gently insert it into the nostril.
2) Gently massage the inner walls of the nasal passage while gently sniffing.
3) Alternate left and right nostrils until each nostril has received a total of three applications of oil. The lubrication and gentle massage helps to alleviate stress and release tension in the tissues.
Nasya may also be administered to ear canal to prevent or alleviate earache, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), and to regenerate blood flow to ear. Apply 1 drop in each ear. Massaging face, sinuses, and behind ears and then covering face with a warm washcloth relieves sinus congestion, headache, and ear pain.
