Breathe easy with neti and nasya
Banyan Botanicals' herbal, organic nasya oil is to be used in conjunction with the neti pot.
The breath is the gateway to consciousness. Neti and nasya are powerful practices to cleanse and clear the sinus cavities for easier breathing and a deeper meditation and asana practice. Daily use removes pollen, mold, dust and environmental toxins, resulting in relief from allergies and congestion and a clearer mind.
Read below for instructions on how to use a neti post and nasya oil.
Neti and nasya work together to cleanse and protect the sinus cavities. To practice neti, dissolve ½ to 1 teaspoon of mineral salt into a neti pot and fill with warm water. With your head tilted forward horizontally over a sink, pour one half of this mixture through one nostril, allowing the water to come out the other nostril. Blow gently to remove blockages and repeat with the rest of the mixture through the other nostril.
Nasya oil lubricates the delicate membranes in the sinus cavities. Simply tilt your head back and place 1 to 2 drops of nasya oil into each nostril. Sniff and rub your nostrils together gently.
Try this practice each morning upon waking or several times a day when you feel like you are getting sick or are in an area with a lot of pollution.
