Self Administration of Nasya Oil

Nasya oil has been used for thousands of years to treat a variety of diseases of the head and neck.  Though it can be curative, the strength of this remedy lies in its protective / preventative properties which work in the nasal passageways, stopping pathogens and allergens before they enter the respiratory tract and cause inflammation.

For acute conditions or high allergy days, use this oil every 2-3 hours.  For prevention and general maintenance of the nasal passageways and mucous membranes, use once every day, preferably in the am, after bathing.

Indications for nasya oil:

  • Allergies
  • Frequent colds
  • Headaches
  • TMJ
  • Teeth / jaw grinding
  • Epilepsy
  • Parkinson’s
  • Bell’s palsy
