How to use a Neti Pot and Nasya Oil (Ayurvedic Respiratory Cleansing Practice):

Ayurnas (pronounced eye-yur-naz) is a tri-doshic oil treatment based on the timeless healing principles of Ayurvedic medicine. The traditional practice of Nasya is used at the Chopra Center to help relieve cold and allergy symptoms such as congestion, dryness, and post-nasal drip as well as stress related symptoms such as headaches and muscle tension. The Chopra Center’s custom-blend Ayurnas contains the organic ingredients of safflower oil, sesame oil, coconut oil, vitamin E, infused with the natural aromas of eucalyptus, rose, sandalwood, peppermint, lavender, and basil all of which uniquely contribute to one of the most potent treatments in Ayurveda. Using a Neti pot and Nasya is a traditional method to purify and revitalize the breathing passages. In the same way that massage nourishes and rejuvenates the skin, Neti and Nasya nourish and rejuvenate the breathing passages. This process can reduce allergies and decrease your chances of contracting upper respiratory infections. It is also useful before taking a plane flight to keep your breathing passages moist.

A Neti pot is a small container with a spout that can be gently placed into your nostrils through which warm salt water isNeti Pot administered. Usually made from a ceramic material, a typical Neti pot holds about 2/3 of cup of water to which 1/8 teaspoon of salt is added.

Place the spout of the Neti pot in one nostril and gently pour in the warm salt water. Your head should be positioned so the water runs out the other nostril. Any remaining liquid in your nasal passages is expelled and the process is repeated on the other side.

Nasya involves the application of a few drops of oil to the nasal membranes. The oil should be an edible grade of sesame, almond or olive. Herbalized aromatic oils that contain small amounts of camphor, eucalyptus and menthol can also be used. Place a drop of the oil on your baby finger and apply it inside your nostril. Then gently sniff it up and repeat on the other side. This can be repeated four to six times per day.

* Use only bottled, distilled, filtered, or boiled after cooled water.

French Atlantic Grey Salt

Grey Salt is a “moist” unrefined sea salt usually found on the coastal areas of France. Its light grey, almost light purple color comes from the clay found in the salt flats. The salt is collected by hand using traditional Celtic methods. Grey Salt is considered by many to be the best quality salt available and is ideal for use with a Neti pot.
