It is recommended to adapt nasya into your daily routine for prevention of nasal diseases.  

It is ideal to warm nasya oil for better penetration. You can do this by putting the nasya oil bottle into warm water for few minutes beforehand  

Lie down on your back with a pillow or rolled towel under your neck so  that your head is slightly tilted upwards opening nasal passage. Keep tissues handy incase you need to sneeze  

Place 2 drops of oil with dropper in each nostril and relax for 5-10 minutes, while oil penetrates into sinus cavity.  If it goes in throat spit it out and keep relaxing.  Please do not go outside direct into  wind after this. Follow this once a week  

Mini Practice:   Place a drop of nasya oil at the tip of your little finger.  Insert the same finger into your nostril as deep as you comfortably can.  Move finger around to massage and lubricate nostril while taking deep inhalation.  Repeat the same procedure into another nostril  after washing the little finger or by using little finger of  the other hand.  Wash hands properly.
