Nowadays, experimenting with your appearance has become a trend.
Multiple piercing on the ear, nose piercing, body tattoos, hair colouring and body piercings (mostly on the tongue and the belly) have developed into fashion statements.
After ear piercings, nose piercing is the second most popular type of body piercing.
The nose rings are in high demand. They are available in various designs, colours, shapes and sizes.
If you see the pictures of any Indian Goddess, they are mostly seen adorning the beautiful nose ring.
According to Indian tradition, wearing a nose ring was considered as paying respect and honouring the Goddess of marriage, Parvati.
An ancient ayurvedic text, Sushruta Samhita, mentions the health benefits of wearing nose rings.
The 5 Benefits Of Wearing A Nose Ring are:
1. Improves the functioning of the female reproductive system.
Mostly, women wear the nose ring on the left nostril. The nerve endings of the left nostril helps in easing the childbirth process.
Conferring to the Ayurveda, the nose piercing done near a particular node on the left nostril helps in easing the discomfort during monthly periods in women.
2. Adds to the beauty
Leonardo Da Vinci, the great painter, observed that among the whole face, the nose describes certain facets of a person’s character.
The nose ring is very attractive and can highlight the facial features of a lady well.
When you wear a nose ring, it becomes the most noticeable jewellery. Due to its natural positioning, it adds value to the face and enhances the beauty quotient.
3. Improves the functioning of the nose
The nose is one of the 5 sense organs.
In a woman, when the carbon from the nose is emitted from the left nostril, it is considered the best time for you to start your activities.
There are three known types of exhalation methods, mentioned in Ayurveda. They are:
Pranan, Vyanan & Abanan.
The discharge of air from the right nostril is called Pranan,
The discharge of air from the left nostril is called Vyanan
When air is exhaled from both nostrils it is known as Abanan.
For women, if the air is exhaled from the left nostril, then it is considered best for health reasons. Wearing the nose ring on the left nostril helps in the process of exhalation.
When women wear a nose ring the process of exhalation of unwanted gases takes place faster and hence the body is cooled down sooner.
Blood pressure is directly related to the amount of heat in the body. This leads to anger issues and emotional imbalance.
By simply wearing a nose ring, peace and tranquillity of the mind can be attained.
4. Gold nose ring attracts positive energy
In India, the metal gold is given utmost importance. Be, it a wedding or any religious function, women always wear gold ornaments.
The metal, Gold, possesses spiritual energies, that attracts positivity into the life of the person wearing it.
Wearing a gold nose ring will help you get relief from feelings of rage and despair and makes you feel calmer and happier.
Gold produces “warm energy” that surrounds the person wearing it with comforting vibrations.
As the nose is a sensory organ, the properties of gold get activated faster.
5. Activates the sixth sense
It is considered that the position of the sixth sense, is located just above the upper end of the nose.
As the nose ring is worn tightly around the pierced area, the nerve endings are stimulated.
It is believed that these nerve stimulations can reach the position of the sixth sense and activate the sixth sense area.
Nowadays, nose rings can be worn even if you do not have a piercing. Press-nose rings are available online and in the market easily.
A variety of options in nose rings are available, from a small stud to a chain nose ring.
