Nidra Nasya

Nasya is the administration of medicine through the nasal cavity, the gateway to our consciousness. Nidra is the Yogic word for sleep or deep relaxation.  Hence our Nidra Nasya is a nasal oil created to induce a calm mind and relaxed state, easing one into sleep.   Because of this direct form of administration, our Sleep Nasya acts directly on the mind and nervous system making it a great method for combating chronic or acute battles with insomnia, an overactive mind, and restless sleep.  It not only helps one to get to a sleepy state, but also is beneficial for allowing one to stay asleep longer.  Nidra Nasya can be used at anytime of the night, and is gentle enough for daily use without creating dependency or causing unwanted side effects.

Health Benefits and Uses:
  • Promotes sleepiness and relaxation
  • Quiets and calms an overactive mind
  • Reduces anxiety, nervousness and fear
  • Balances emotions
  • Allows one to fall asleep with ease
  • Allows one to stay asleep longer
  • Can be taken before bed, or in the middle of the night with restless sleep issues
  • Strengthens and calms the nervous system

Nasya of any kind should be avoided during pregnancy and menstruation.  Young children under 7 and elderly over 80 should avoid all nasya therapies.  Nasya is not recommended on a full stomach, directly before exercise, during high fever, during a nose bleed, or at times of breathing difficulties such as asthma attacks.    

General Directions:

Nidra Nasya should be applied up to 15-20 minutes before the desired bedtime.  It can also be applied throughout the night, during an unwanted awakening.    

Slightly warm the oil by placing the bottle in warm water for several minutes.  Avoid using excessively hot water as it can crack the glass bottle or overheat the oil.

Lie down and tilt the head back slightly.   Apply 1-5 drops of the oil into each nostril.  Take a large inhale through each nostril.  Keep the head back for 2-3 minutes, letting the oil penetrate into the sinus cavity.    

This oil is not intended for daytime use; however, it can be applied anytime there is high anxiety or panic to help calm and relax the body and mind.
