Have you had a good, liberating nasal cleanse lately? If you want to breathe easier, NOSE provides your nasal passages with "superfoods" that serve as your body's first line of defense. If you get the sniffles and sneezes because of irritants both inside the home and out, NOSE knows how to help!
You’re likely familiar with the practice of steam inhalation. Especially when we’re afflicted with the oh-so-common cold virus, we stock up on tea tree oil and eucalyptus, insert a few drops into a pot of boiling water, put a towel over our heads, and breathe deeply. Ahh. It feels so good to get that relief. Or, if you’ve used a neti pot, you know the liberating feeling of sinus clarity.
Nasya accomplishes something quite similar.
But what exactly is nasya? In Ayurveda, herbal oils are inserted straight up into the nostrils. The nasal passage is a direct gateway to our sinus network. Directly inserting herbal oils supports healthy, clear sinuses. In Ayurvedic theory, the sinuses are considered a direct passage to our prana. Prana is our life force, or our vital energy. Makes sense, right? If you're stuffed up, it affects your energy levels and well-being.
An oiled up nose can improve respiration, oxygenation and circulation, can increase overall energy, help stuck feelings move through, and allow for deeper breathing.
Our nasal cavities are highly absorbent, and we may as well take advantage of that fact and rub some excellent herbs in there! Also, when our noses get really, really dry, irritation, redness, and itchiness, and all kinds of similarly uncomfortable sensations can arise. But when we hydrate and nourish the nasal cavity, not only do we eliminate that irritation, our immune system is supported. NOSE acts as your immunity's first line of defense. It makes for an excellent preventative measure.
We have developed a refreshing and clearing nasal oil inspired by this wonderful ancient Ayurvedic tradition. We’ve infused it with a powerful probiotic which may help to flush out sinus infections, or prevent them in the first place.
