With wind, cold weather and some wet days here in Atlanta you may have noticed your sinuses getting dry.
“Nurture your nostrils” with a simple Ayurvedic technique that you can practice all year round.
It’s called “Nasya”. Nasya oil is an Ayurvedic formula of sesame oil with infused herbs. When applied into the nostrils it can do way more than just lubricate but can also benefit:
* alleviating neck pain and hoarseness of throat
* supporting emotional balance
* promote clearer perception , memory, and intuition
* alleviate headaches
* enhances mood
*reduces fear, anxiety, and worry
The vital energy or “prana’ enters our bodies through the nose. Nasya oil practice supports this subtle energy process and can enhance overall health.
Simply lie down on your bed and tilt your head back- Drop five to seven drops of oil into each nostril and lie back for a few minutes. Nasya oil can be purchased at Atlanta Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine.
This ancient formula is a great practice to include in your daily routine after brushing your teeth in the morning.
