Health Benefits of Oil Nose Drops, Nasya

Oil Nose Drops not only increase your immunity and uplift your mood, but also heal many problems from the shoulders up. They oleate your nasal passages and block the bacteria from entering and causing infection.

Nasya is a great treatment for any pain or discomfort in the shoulders, neck, face and head (e.g. sore neck/shoulders, headaches, allergies, congestion, loss of smell, sneezing, sinusitis). It helps to remove fatigue, tiredness, and weakness from the body. Oil Nose Drops are also very effective for insomnia (see Tips on Sleep), sunken & puffy eyes, and dark circles under the eyes.

Also, after Nasya, the air that you inhale has more moisture and Prana (the life force). Many of my Ayurveda teachers claim Nasya to be the best Ayurveda treatment and they recommend it for almost anything.

How to Make and Apply Nasya

You can purchase many different kinds of Nasya, but you can also make your own with plain sesame oil or ghee.

If you decide for the sesame oil, simply put plain, unroasted, if possible organic, sesame oil in a small glass jar with a dropper.

Nasya takes just a couple of minutes and you feel the results immediately. My mom calls it, the “make me happy quick” treatment.

The proper way to insert the Oil Nose Drops, is to first warm the oil up. Simply put the glass jar in a hot water bath for a couple of minutes. Then insert 2-3 drops in each nostril.

What works also well, and is much faster, is to put a drop of the oil on your pinky fingers and then rub them inside your nostrils (one at a time please ;-).

When you insert the oil nose drops in your nose, try to breathe deeply for a couple of minutes and you will notice that your mind is also calmer and happier. No wonder that Nasya is also a great treatment for blue mood.

When to Do Nasya

The best time to insert the Oil Nose Drops is in the morning before breakfast and in the evening before bed. Nasya is also a great way to start your meditation, Yoga Poses, or Alternate Nostril Breathing.

Happy breathing!

"I only use top of the line products and I have never seen a product like this. It absorbs easily into the skin and allows me to touch the skin more closely than when I work with other products." -Shelly, Esthetician, New Mexico, June 2008


"After only two weeks of daily use, my skin is glowing again and my rosacea is 80% gone. Thank you, Barbora!" -Rachel, California, August 2009


"I got your 100x washed ghee from my son Patrick. I was really impressed with the results. I haven’t had anything this fantastic on my face before! I have a daughter who also suffers from eczema and I cannot wait for her to also try it. Really amazing product."- Regina, Czech Republic, July 2010


"I use the 100x washed ghee as a moisturizer and on tiny eczema patches I get once in a while. I also give it to my mother who uses it on her psoriasis. She calls it 'liquid gold.'" -Mary, Massachusetts, December 2011


"Barbora. I've received the second shipment of the 100x washed ghee. It's great, thank you. I am recommending it to several people with skin problems. I have an appointment with my dermatologist this week. I have waited for four months for the appointment. Same facial rash and itch for more that 5 years..many rx, costly meds that have not helped. With less than two weeks of twice a day of the 100x washed ghee, my skin is soft and the long suffering rash is gone!! Amazing!! I will be back and order more for sure. Thank you so much for sending the second container... I would not have realized just how great this stuff is. Thanks" -Lauren, Virginia, August 2012


"I bought a small jar of the 100x washed ghee at the workshop in Prague and I am completely crazy about it. I cannot imagine my evening (and sometimes even morning) without it. It's incredibly soothing. I have a beautiful skin now and I am not the only one who have noticed it:-). I had a friend visiting the other day and she wanted to take it away from me! So, now I need to buy one jar also for her." -Katka, Czech Republic, September 2012


"I have ordered the larger jar, because I have already used up the small one I purchased. It did wonders for my skin and my rosacea. You have a wonderful product, you can be very proud of. Thank you, Barbora!" -Deborah, Texas, January 2013


"I just started using your product and I love it! It's decreased my fine lines and lightened my dark spots from sun damage. I've tried many products for my sun damage and nothing works like your ghee. I could literally tell the difference the first week of using it." -Susan, California, February 2014


"Just wanted to say that after four years of having severe painful rosacea your washed ghee has returned my fragile skin close to its previous state before the rosacea in only a few days. I am so grateful. Thank you."-Evangeline, Australia, August 2014
