From the day we started Four Visions Market, we’ve been devoted to bringing you the highest quality plant medicines sourced directly from traditional peoples. However, while we focus on the Amazon Jungle and her medicines, today we want to share with you a new product that we’ve added to our botanical line that comes from another 5,000-year-old tradition…that of Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is the ancient science of the Yogis of India. And believe it or not, there are a lot of similarities between the science of Ayurveda and the Amazonian Wisdom Cultures. They are wonderful compliments to each other. That’s why we often recommend the practices of breathwork and yoga to any plant medicine practitioner, they go hand in hand to create a holistic spiritual practice.
Today’s product highlight is a solution to congestion, blocked nasal passages, allergies, and even the common issue of too much hapé stuck in the nose, haha.
It’s said that the nose is the doorway to the brain, mind, and consciousness. And it’s believed by ancient healers that the cleansing breath is the foundation of wellbeing.
So, it’s important (especially during your meditations) that you’re able to comfortably inhale through your nose—inviting a clear connection with the Creator into your daily prayer and meditation.
We know what it’s like when the nasal passages are blocked or dried out. It’s quite uncomfortable (and even frustrating) to practice breathing exercises, calm your mind, and concentrate in deep prayer. It’s also very difficult to enjoy your hapé practice if you are left feeling stuffed up afterward.
Cleaning the sinuses with nourishing moisture can alleviate nasal blockages and provides relief from clogged air pathways that make it hard to breathe through the nose.
The Shamans of ancient India developed Nasya Oil Therapy over 5,000 years ago in their quest to develop techniques to eliminate toxins from the body.
Nasya (from the Sanskrit word meaning “of the nose”) oils were used to soothe and nourish the nasal passages and even treat headaches, stress, and chronic sinus inflammation.
As avid Hapé Practitioners, as well as regular meditators and lovers of breathwork, we use Nasya Oil regularly to open up the breath and allow the force of life to flow through us with greater power and ease. So we thought, why not source our own Nasya Oil that we could share with you, our Four Visions Family?
With allergy season upon us, it is the perfect time to begin your Nasya Oil Practice. It’s so simple, just a few drops of this special botanical oil up your nose while lying down, allows the entire nasal passage and respiratory system to be cleansed and opened up. Apply 20 minutes before or after your hapé practice, or right before your meditation practice for optimal benefits.
If you’ve been feeling a bit congested and are looking for something to clear out your sinuses, are interested in deepening your hapé practice with a tool that will open you and prepare you more fully to receive the hapé, or are simply intrigued by this ancient remedy used by the masters of breath, the yogis, please click here to learn more about this healing plant medicine.
