Nasya treatment refers to an Ayurvedic therapy that includes instillation of herbal oils, juices or powders through the nasal route. It works specifically on disorders of ear, nose and throat. Nasya helps to lubricate the nasal passage, clean out mucous and sinuses, improves voice, mental clarity and vision. It is believed in Ayurveda that the nose is the pathway to our brain. Therefore conducting Nasya karma improves intelligence and memory.
- Nasya lubricates nasal membrane especially after the use of Neti Pot as Nasya oil nourishes and lubricates freshly cleaned nasal passages.
During winters when we have heaters running in the house, especially in the northern hemisphere, our nose bleeds sometimes as it dries up. Neti Pot and Nasya Therapy can help moisturize our nasal passage and prevent bleeding from the nose.
Nasya treatment can be helpful in headaches, migraines, sinus congestion, allergies, nose bleeds, dry nasal passages, and insomnia.
You will notice that I recommend inhaling steam after using Neti Pot and before you perform Nasya therapy. The main benefit of inhaling moist, warm steam is that can ease feelings of irritation and swollen blood vessels in the nasal passages. It can also loosen up the mucus in your sinuses so that you can remove it from the nose more easily and helps relieve nasal congestion and headaches.

How Does Nasya Treatment Work?
The medicaments administered through the nostrils pervade into the nervous (Brain) and venous system (Blood circulation) present in and around the nostrils. Then they evacuate the morbidity present or distributed in nearby area. Thus it relieves the blockage of the channels and the diseases are cured effectively.
