IndicationsNasya Oil supports sinus decongestion, immunity, headache relief, mental clarity and focus. When indoor heating dries out nasal passages, Nasya Oil moisturizes them. It is useful for headaches, neck and shoulder tension, and mental sluggishness.
CommentaryNasya promotes healthy breathing, immunity, clear thinking and the relief of tension in the head, neck and shoulders. It is also thought to support the voice and vision. It is balancing for all three doshas.
UsageAdults place 5 drops in each nostril. Ideally, lie down with your head hanging off the edge of your bed so that it naturally tilts back. If this is not possible, tilt the head back while standing or sitting. Squeeze the nostrils lightly and softly sniff the oil up the nose. If you sniff too hard, you will taste the oil at the back of your throat and the Nasya will miss the mark. Give the oil a few minutes to soak in before lifting the head.
Wait at least an hour after eating or showering before use. Do not use Nasya when you have a sinus infection. Nasya is not recommended for children or the elderly.

Product Reviews for Nasya Oil

what oils are in nasya and are they organic?
Nasya Oil keeps my sinuses moist and healthy. I used to pop allergy meds and that dried my sinuses and eyes. Continuous use of Nasya oil was a better cure.
I'm an old fan of this product from another company. Nasya oil keeps my nostril passages happy through various dry seasons,
Nasya Oil contains Sesame oil, Olive oil,Brahmi, Calamus, Skullcap, Eucalyptus essential oil and is certified organic.
I am having a great deal of relief using Nasya Oil. I had such dry mucus in my nasal passages and it was becoming painful and somewhat bloody. Once I started using Nasya Oil my passages now feel so much better now. I was wondering how long do you use this oil. Is there a limit to its usage?
Hi Rose, Nasya Oil is safe for daily use. The only thing I would suggest is to use plain sesame oil for a week a month so that your body remains reactive to the herbs in Nasya Oil. With long term use, you may develop a tolerance which is easy to avoid by alternating with plain sesame oil. Hope that's helpful!
Thank you, John. Love you to bits!:)
I received my nasya oil just in time. The cold weather and dry night time heated air of winter were just starting to irritate my nasal passages. I was not coordinated enough to drop 5 drops in each nostril as directed. What a mess! I checked the Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies and followed the suggestion for self administration using a clean trimmed pinky finger to massage interior of nasal cavity.
Have only used this a handful of times but it seems to be working as I have not have near the problem breathing since using it just twice a week.The hardest part is getting over the horrendous taste, if you can get past that it works.
You shouldn't be experiencing much taste from it, that's a sign that it is dripping down your throat instead of going up into your head. Try adjusting the angle of your head while applying nasya and lay down for 5-10 min after.
