How to Relieve Nasal Dryness at Home with Ozonated Oils

Posted by Marin Crangaci
Use Coconut Ozonated Oil:  

What Is a Dry Nose?

With the onset of arid and cold weather, the inside of your nose may get dry and irritated. Lack of humidity in the environment can cause dryness in the nasal passages, which can lead to congestion and crust formation.

A dry nose can also result from the use of certain medications or the development of some medical conditions.

Dryness in the nose may cause pain and respiratory problems if left untreated.

What Causes a Dry Nose?

Dryness in the nose commonly occurs due to decreased humidity levels in the surrounding environment. The following factors can contribute to increased dryness:

  • Desert climate
  • Excessive use of air conditioning or indoor heating
  • Taking a sauna without steam

A dry nose can also occur due to:

  • Medications such as antihistamines, anticholinergics, and decongestants
  • Overuse of decongestant nasal sprays
  • Use of tobacco, recreational drugs, cigarettes, or vape
  • Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease in which the immune system of the body attacks the mucus-secreting cells of the nose, eyes, and mouth, resulting in decreased mucus secretion and, consequently, dryness
  • Atrophic rhinitis, a chronic condition with an unknown cause characterized by the formation of thick, dry crusts in the nasal cavity

Symptoms of a Dry Nose

Dryness in the nose may be accompanied by:

  • Altered sense of smell 
  • Nasal congestion (usually in the morning)
  • Swelling and redness of the nose
  • Itchiness
  • Pain and burning sensation
  • Recurrent sneezing
  • Excessive secretions
  • Bleeding from the nasal cavity
  • Formation of crusts 
  • Fissures

Self-Care Treatment for a Dry Nose

nasal dryness due to changing weather conditions can be treated using these methods:

  • Consume more water: It is important to stay hydrated to prevent drying of the tissues, especially during the cold winter months, even if you do not feel thirsty as usual.

    Avoid alcoholic beverages and drinks that have a high sugar content to prevent further dehydration.
  • Enhance the humidity: The arid air of the winter season can cause dryness in the nose. A bedroom humidifier can be used to increase the moisture level indoors.

    The humidifiers should be cleaned twice a week to avoid the growth of mold and bacteria. Self-sterilizing humidifiers, which let you skip on the hassle of cleaning, are also available.
  • Take warm baths: Steam baths or saunas increase the moisture level in the air and hydrate your skin. The increased humidity during steam baths can help to relieve a dry nose.

    However, exposure to steam for very long durations should be avoided as it can cause skin dryness.
  • Apply natural ozonated oils: 
Mix Almond Oil with Aloe Vera- use 1/2 a teaspoon of sweet almond ozonated oil and 1/4 of a teaspoon of aloe vera gel and mix them together. Then, soak up a q-tip and gently apply to the inside of your nostrils. This will help lubricate your nose and ease any pain.
Use coconut ozonated oil -  dip a q-tip into it and then apply the ozonated oil to the inside of your nostrils. Try to apply no more than 3 times a day, and always before you go to bed.

4 Reasons to Use Ozonated Oil

  • Using ozonated oil in the nose lubricates the nasal cavity and sinuses, offering protection from the bacteria, and creating a barrier against pollen and environmental pollutants.
  • Practicing ozonated oil clears stagnation from dry accumulated mucous and relieves congestion, opening up the nasal passages, sharpening the sense of smell, and reactivating breathing through the nose.
  • Because the nose serves as the gateway to the head, keeping the nasal passages well hydrated promotes mental clarity, sharpens the memory, and aids in creating emotional stability.
  • Regular application of ozonated oil relieves dryness, nourishes the nervous system, eases tension in the head, neck, throat, and jaw, and fosters calming, stable energy.

The Beauty Benefits of Anti-Aging Ozonated Oils

Posted by Marin Crangaci
Today’s ozonated oils are cosmetically elegant, light formulations that are excellent for layering and everyday use. They are typically derived from flowers, leaves, roots, and other parts of plants. While they are predominantly known for their hydrating properties, ozone helps anti-aging routines and provides antibacterial and healing benefits. This column briefly reviews the moisturizing and cleansing benefits of anti-aging facial ozonated oils. Ozonated oils have long been used on the skin for cosmetic purposes. Topical applications of ozonated oils have a variety of effects on the skin according to their composition. 

Key ozonated oil components include triglycerides, free fatty acids, tocopherols, sterols, phospholipids, waxes, squalene, phenolic compounds, and ozonide. According to leading dermatologists, ozonated oils may be the missing step in standard beauty routines. Derms also cautions that not all ozonated oils are the same. Some can nourish the skin, while others can be potential irritants, so consumers must choose wisely. Consumers are also drawn to ingredients sourced from nature, which may explain, in part, why in the past few years, ozonated oils have become staples in beauty cabinets everywhere, although the trend originated in South Korea.
With age, skin moisture levels decline, causing the skin to become dry and dehydrated, and making fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. Ozonated oils not only hydrate the skin but because they are rich in antioxidants, they also fight free radical damage to cells, thereby preventing further aging. The global cosmetic oil market size is expected to top $72 billion by 2025, a CAGR of 5.2%, according to Grand View Research Inc. Increasing the use of beauty oils by the hair and skin care industries is the key factor driving the growth of the market. In the US, emollients are forecast to achieve the fastest growth during the period of 2018-2023, according to Nikola Matic, director of the chemicals and materials practice at Kline & Company. Ozonated oils provide occlusion, which means they help seal in the moisture that is already there, imparting a glowing, plumped and refreshed facial look. They provide the skin with essential nutrients like fatty acids, that help maintains moisture and increase its ability to protect itself against the environment. Ozonated oils are excellent for spot skin applications delivering desired skin benefits. Ozonated oils easily pass through the lipid layers of the skin, preventing water loss and creating an immediate plumping action.

Lipids are produced by cells in the stratum corneum, the protective outer layer of skin that functions as the skin’s primary protection against water loss. The ozonated oils keep skin layers soft, seal in hydration, and protect against allergens and pathogens, by keeping the stratum corneum intact. Hydration is really a function of water balance, so oils help keep water in, and prevents the environment from stripping water out, according to Dermatologist Tyler Hollowig. Ozonated oil is critical to maintain the barrier and minimize water loss; both are essential for healthy, hydrated skin, and prevent irritants from entering the skin. Emollient in nature, oils easily fill in the spaces between the cells in the upper layer of the skin. By replacing these essential lipids, ozonated oil products smooth, lubricate, and moisturize the skin. Hydration is essential in diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and making skin supple and smooth.

Ozonated oils should be applied to clean damp skin by gently pressing them on the face. Wet skin will lock-in the moisture. According to Cecelia Wong, a holistic skincare expert, hemp seed ozonated oil is the best oil for acne. Studies have found that 5% hemp seed ozonated oil is as effective as 5% benzoyl peroxide. Dermatologist Leslie Bowmann recommends hemp seed ozonated oil as a gentle natural acne treatment. For oily skin, grape seed ozonated oil helps regulate natural oil production. It is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.

Wong’s entire anti-aging skincare line is based on ozonated sweet almond oil. It smooths fine lines and wrinkles while moisturizing skin. ozonated sweet almond oil contains high concentrations of vitamin E and fatty acids, which are more stable in sunlight than other antioxidants, which is ideal for daily wear products. so you can wear all day. 

Ozonated oils are non-comedogenic, non-greasy, and are highly effective for removing makeup and are the best sources for cleansing dry, dehydrated, or sensitive skin. Dermatologist Mona Gohara recommends ozonated oils as facial cleansers, as they are especially good at removing silicone and synthetic makeup ingredients. Unlike soap, when you rinse an ozonated oil cleanser, it won’t strip the skin. Also, the ozonated oils, which are antioxidant-rich, neutralize free radicals that cause signs of aging. Avoid cleansers that contain harsh detergent like ammonium lauryl sulfate, which can dry skin. It is better to use washes enriched with ozonated oil such as argan, jojoba, or sunflower seed, which clean and moisturize.

Ozonated oils help regulate the skin’s natural oil production system by replenishing lipids, triglycerides, and essential fatty acids that can be stripped during washing. Arielle Nagler, a dermatologist at NYU Langone Medical Center, notes that facial cleansing with ozonated oils is best suited for people with dry skin who could use a little more moisture, rather than people who produce a lot of oil. 

Ozonated oil-based products are one of the best ways to add moisture to the skin, according to Engelman and Bhansali. They are easily absorbed and penetrate deeply.

How to Make an Ozonated Olive Oil Mask for Smoother, Radiant Skin

Posted by Elena Sincariova
If you’ve ever wondered, “Is it OK to put olive oil on my face?”, the answer for most people is, yes. In fact, the antioxidants in ozonated olive oil can help prevent skin from premature aging and wrinkles (and who wouldn’t like that?). Ozonated olive oil’s vitamins enhance cell turnover, leaving your skin looking brighter and feeling smoother. Ozonated oil face treatments are particularly helpful in dry, cold weather because ozonated oil is able to penetrate the skin even better than fancy moisturizers. 

Can I use ozonated olive oil on my face every day?

Because ozonated olive oil is heavy oil, using it as a face mask every day could clog pores and create unwanted blemishes, especially if your skin is already prone to oiliness. Use this ozonated olive oil face mask twice weekly and you’ll achieve beautiful results. You can, however, use ozonated olive oil as a daily eye makeup remover. Simply add a few drops to a cotton ball, gently wipe the eye area, and rinse thoroughly.

What can I mix with ozonated olive oil for an effective face mask?

To boost the benefits of an ozonated olive oil face mask, I’ve added a few simple ingredients that help skin look smoother and more radiant. (As with any new skin treatment, do a patch test on your skin first to make sure it doesn’t adversely react  to any ingredients.)

Raw honey (preferably Manuka honey) is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, which helps prevent acne. Raw honey is also a humectant, which increases your skin’s water content and reduces dryness, plumping the skin and leaving a lovely glow.

Fresh orange zest contains vitamin C, a key ingredient that protects against skin damage from UV rays and pollution. Vitamin C helps in the formation of collagen—skin’s support system—and fights free radicals, improving your skin’s texture and reducing wrinkles.

Egg yolk helps lock in skin’s moisture, leaving it softer and more supple. It hydrates and nourishes dull skin, making egg yolks a good choice if you have dry skin. If your skin is oily, substitute an egg white for the egg yolk. Egg whites help tighten skin, shrink pores, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The protein and collagen found in eggs help promote skin elasticity and strength.

Vitamin E oil is an antioxidant that easily absorbs into the skin and helps reduce damage from UV rays. Applied topically, it nourishes dry skin and neutralizes free radicals that contribute to wrinkles and brown spots.

DIY Ozonated olive Oil Face Mask

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 Tbsp. ozonated olive oil
  • 1 tsp. raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly grated orange zest
  • 1 vitamin E oil capsule
  • 1 egg yolk (for dry skin) or 1 egg white (for oily skin)
  • Makeup brush

Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. In a small container, mix the ozonated olive oil, honey, and orange zest.
  2. Break open a vitamin E oil capsule and add the contents to the ozonated olive oil mixture.
  3. Add the egg yolk or egg white to the ozonated olive oil mixture; whisk until well blended. 
  4. Using a soft makeup brush, apply a generous layer of the olive oil mask to your face and neck, avoiding the eye and mouth area. Leave on for 15 minutes.
  5. Wash off the mask with warm water; rinse with cool water. Apply your favorite moisturizer to face and neck.
  6. Store the remaining mask in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Makes 2 applications.

Tip: Apply the ozonated olive oil mask after getting out of the shower while your pores are open and your skin can benefit most from the extra hydration.

Sugar Scrub With Ozonated Oil

Posted by Elena Sincariova
Sugar body scrubs with ozonated oil are non-toxic, eco friendly and edible! Learn how to make your very own homemade body scrub with sugar and ozonated oil, it’s so easy and makes great gifts too!


This is my favorite homemade body scrub ever!

I’ve been using it for a few years now and figured it was time to share. It’s so easy to make your own sugar scrub with ozonated oil from scratch and will leave your skin glowing, soft, and supple!


Sugar body scrubs with ozonated oil are great for exfoliating your skin, as they aid in keeping it healthy by removing dead skin cells, lifting away dirt and excess oil, as well as stimulating circulation.

Glycolic acid occurs naturally in sugar, and is helpful for cleansing the skin and dissolving dead skin cells. It’s also a humectant and will not strip your skin of its precious natural oils.

Ozonated oil has very useful biological benefits for your entire family's skincare regime as well as for naturally treating some of the most common conditions, such as redness, skin irritation, dermatitis, bedsores, herpes, poor circulation, scars, breakouts, rashes, ulcers, rubbing dryness…

  • It protects the skin against external aggressors.
  • It is deeply moisturizing and nourishing.
  • It purifies, regenerates and repairs the skin. It helps the healing process.
  • It improves blood circulation and associated problems (ulcers, severe dry skin…).
  • It controls and prevents the proliferation of germs present in some skin conditions (acne, seborrhea, skin lesions…).
  • It improves cellular metabolism and strengthens the natural anti-inflammatory system.
  • It treats problematic or damaged skin (redness, bedsores, scars...).
  • It helps to avoid the use of medical treatments such as corticosteroid creams.


There are three main types of sugar you can choose from when making homemade sugar scrubs. Personally, I tend to stick with pure cane sugar, with brown sugar coming in second. Pure cane sugar is just right for my skin type, but I encourage you to try the different types to see what works best for your skin type.

  • Brown sugar is the least abrasive making it a good choice for those with sensitive skin, and a good choice when making a face scrub. Since it is the gentlest, it can be used up to 4 times a week.
  • Pure cane sugar (unrefined white) is good for all skin types and contains some essential nutrients to feed the skin. Can be used 2 – 3 times per week.
  • Turbinado sugar (raw) is naturally the coarsest due to its large granules and makes for a great body scrub. It is the least processed of the three and holds the most essential minerals. Body scrubs made with raw sugar can be used up to 2 times a week.


When I first started making my own exfoliating body scrubs, I used ozonated olive oil but have since changed to jojoba and sweet almond ozonated oil. I recommend trying different ozonated oils, or mix and match, to see what works best for you. 

Coconut ozonated oil is moisturizing, conditioning and won’t clog your pores. It also has antiviral and antibacterial properties.

Hemp seed ozonated oil is conditioning and regenerative. It is especially good for moisturizing dry, damaged skin and works well for eczema and psoriasis. It reduces skin aging and is anti-inflammatory. Hemp seed ozonated oil penetrates the skin quickly, some describe it as a dry oil. 

Grapeseed ozonated oil  has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It’s odor less, non-greasy, and penetrates quickly. This is a good moisturizing conditioner and nourishes all skin types.

Ozonate olive oil penetrates deeply into skin, making it good for overly dry skin. One reason ozonated olive oil is so powerful is because it’s a “humectant” which means it draws moisture into your skin. It also is good for soothing dry, itchy skin.

Sweet almond ozonated oil  is rich in vitamins E and K, which helps skin regenerate and maintain elasticity. It is also a natural UV blocker and promotes better circulation. It absorbs quickly without leaving an oily residue and is a good choice for all skin types.


No, since this body scrub is doesn’t contain any water you don’t need to add any kind of preservatives.


  • Place 1 cup of sugar in a small/medium size container and add the oznated oil 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing in between. You will use anywhere from 3 – 5 tablespoons, depending on the oil and sugar.
  • The consistency should be sandy, not soupy. If the mix is too soupy the sugars will dissolve in a day or two and not slough the skin as well, but you will still get added moisture from the oil. If it’s too soupy, add more sugar.

For this sugar body scrub recipe, I used organic brown cane sugar, sweet almond ozonated oil and a little lemon juice. I like the added lemon, it’s an uplifting aroma and is good for the skin.


Shower: At the end of showering, lightly pat your skin with a towel, leaving a little moisture and apply the sugar scrub in a circular motion to your entire body. When using a sugar scrub on your face, gently apply the sugar scrub in a circular motion.

Bath: I find to get the best results it helps to have a nice soak in the tub first, at least 20 minutes. This will help soften the outer layers of skin and make it easier to exfoliate. You’ll be left with beautiful, glowing, soft and supple skin!


  • I keep my jar right in the shower caddy so it’s always handy.
  • This sugar scrub with ozonated oil is best used within 1 month.

Ozonated Olive Oil - Natural Therapy of Fungal Nail Disease

Posted by Marin Crangaci
A nail is a horn-like envelope covering the dorsal aspect of the terminal phalanges of fingers and toes in humans, most non-human primates, and a few other mammals. Nails are similar to claws, which are found on numerous other animals. Fingernails and toenails are made of a tough protein called keratin, as are animals' hooves and horns. The mammalian nail, claw, and hoof are all examples of unguis (plural ungues).

Human anatomy

The nail consists of the nail plate, the nail matrix and the nail bed below it, and the grooves surrounding it. The matrix (synonyms: matrix unguis, keratogenous membrane, nail matrix, onychostroma) is the tissue (or germinal matrix) upon which the nail rests, the part of the nail bed that extends beneath the nail root and contains nerves, lymph and blood vessels. The matrix is responsible for the production of the cells that become the nail plate. The width and thickness of the nail plate are determined by the size, length, and thickness of the matrix, while the shape of the fingertip itself determines if the nail plate is flat, arched, or hooked.
The matrix will continue to grow as long as it receives nutrition and remains in a healthy condition. As new nail plate cells are incubated, they emerge from the matrix round and white to push older nail plate cells forward; and in this way yet older cells become compressed, flat, and translucent, making the pink color of the capillaries in the nail bed below visible.
The lunula (occasionally called simply "the moon") is the visible part of the matrix, the whitish crescent-shaped base of the visible nail. The lunula is largest in the thumb and often absent in the little finger.
The nail bed is the skin beneath the nail plate. Like all skin, it is composed of two types of tissues: the deeper dermis, the living tissue fixed to the bone which contains capillaries and glands, and the superficial epidermis, the layer just beneath the nail plate which moves forward with the plate. The epidermis is attached to the dermis by tiny longitudinal "grooves" known as the matrix crests or crests of the nail matrix (cristae matricis unguis). During old age, the plate thins, and these grooves are made evident in the structure.
The nail sinus (sinus unguis) is the deep furrow into which the nail root is inserted.
The nail root (radix unguis) is the part of the nail situated in the nail sinus, i.e. the base of the nail embedded underneath the skin. It originates from the actively growing tissue below, the matrix.
The nail plate or body of nail (corpus unguis) is the actual nail, and like hair and skin, made of translucent keratin protein made of amino acids. In the nail it forms a strong flexible material made of several layers of dead, flattened cells. The plate appears pink because of the underlying capillaries. Its (transversal) shape is determined by the form of the underlying bone. In common usage, the word nail often refers to this part only.
The free margin (margo liber) or distal edge is the anterior margin of the nail plate corresponding to the abrasive or cutting edge of the nail. The hyponychium (informally known as the "quick") is the epithelium located beneath the nail plate at the junction between the free edge and the skin of the fingertip. It forms a seal that protects the nail bed. The onychodermal band is the seal between the nail plate and the hyponychium. It is found just under the free edge, in that portion of the nail where the nail bed ends and can be recognized by its glassy, greyish color (in fair-skinned people). It is not perceptible in some individuals while it is highly prominent on others.
The eponychium is the small band of epithelium that extends from the posterior nail wall onto the base of the nail. Often and erroneously called the "proximal fold" or "cuticle", the eponychium is the end of the proximal fold that folds back upon itself to shed an epidermal layer of skin onto the newly formed nail plate. This layer of non-living, almost invisible skin is the cuticle that "rides out" on the surface of the nail plate. Together, the eponychium and the cuticle form a protective seal. The cuticle on the nail plate is dead cells and is often removed during a manicure, but the eponychium is living cells and should not be touched. The perionyx is the projecting edge of the eponychium covering the proximal strip of the lunula.
The nail wall (vallum unguis) is the cutaneous fold overlapping the sides and proximal end of the nail. The lateral margin (margo lateralis) is lying beneath the nail wall on the sides of the nail and the nail groove or fold (sulcus matricis unguis) are the cutaneous slits into which the lateral margins are embedded.
The paronychium is the border tissue around the nail and paronychia is an infection in this area.


A healthy (finger)nail has the function of protecting the distal phalanx, the fingertip, and the surrounding soft tissues from injuries. It also serves to enhance precise delicate movements of the distal digits through counter-pressure exerted on the pulp of the finger. The nail then acts as a counterforce when the end of the finger touches an object, thereby enhancing the sensitivity of the fingertip, even though there are no nerve endings in the nail itself. Finally, the nail functions as a tool, enabling for instance a so-called "extended precision grip" (e.g. pulling out a splinter in one's finger).

Nail Diseases & Infection Fungal or Yeast Infection

A fungal or yeast infection which results in Onychomycosis can invade through a tear in the proximal and lateral nail folds as well as the Eponychium. This type of infection is characterized by Onycholysis (nail plate separation) with evident debris under the nail plate. It normally appears white or yellowish in color, and may also change the texture and shape of the nail. The fungus digests the keratin protein of which the nail plate is comprised. As the infection progresses, organic debris accumulates under the nail plate often discoloring it. Other infectious organisms may be involved, and if left untreated, the nail plate may separate from the nail bed and crumble off.

Paronychia (Nail Infection)

Paronychia disease is an infection of the inflammation skin and soft tissue infections that surrounds a toenail or fingernail. It can start suddenly (acute Paronychia) or gradually (chronic Paronychia). The etiology, infectious agent, and treatment are usually different for each form, and the 2 forms are often considered separate entities. Acute Paronychia develops over a few hours when a nail fold becomes painful, red, and swollen. It is one of the most common hand infections.

Pseudomonas (The Greenies)

Pseudomonas bacterial infection can occur between the natural nail plate and the nail bed, and/or between an artificial nail coating and the natural nail plate. Many people have been led to believe that the classic 'green' discoloration of this type of infection is some type of mold. In actuality, mold is not a human pathogen. The discoloration is simply a by-product of the infection and is caused primarily by iron compounds. Pseudomonas thrives in moist places; it feeds off the dead tissue and bacteria in the nail plate, while the moisture levels allow it to grow.

Tinea Unguis

The symptoms of Tinea include itchiness and foot odor. Sweat and water make the epidermis white and soggy, resulting in Tinea. There often is scaling, maceration, and fissuring of the skin between the third and fourth toes.
Tinea or ringworm is caused mainly by Trichophyton rubum and is the commonest type of fungal infection.

Ozone for Treating Nail Fungus

Ozone therapy for nail fungus is a modernistic and new age treatment, which has been used with success by some people. Perhaps, many have not heard about the use of ozone nail fungus treatment.

However, many of us know that the ozone layer, which is part of the atmosphere, filters out a lot of the UV rays and protects people from harmful rays from the sun. Ozone gas is used to purify the drinking water of major cities since it acts as a primary stage disinfectant because of its capability to destroy fungus and bacteria.

Ozone (O3) is a naturally occurring highly reactive gas, which is composed of three atoms of oxygen. The ozone molecule contains one extra oxygen atom, thus it acts as a powerful oxidation agent. Many people use ozone for nail fungus due to its anti-fungal properties. Thus, taking into account the anti-fungal and oxidizing properties of ozone, chemists have manufactured ozonized topical treatments for curing nail fungus.

The theory behind Ozone Nail fungus Treatment

The use of ozone as a nail fungus treatment is based on the theory that it breaks down and eradicate toxins from the body through the process of the oxidation process. The oxygen releasing effect of ozone or oxidative therapy brings about improvement in the nail fungus. The immune system of the body also gets improved by the yield of the white blood cells. Thus, the key to using ozone for nail fungus treatment be connected with the availability of ozone to the fungus. Ozone 'bagging' and the topical application of ozonated olive oil, are some of the ways to use ozone therapy for nail fungus. Bagging is done by putting the infected fingers in a bag, which is already filled with ozone gas. This method is equivalent to soaking your infected nails in an anti-fungal solution to cure nail fungus.

Ozonated Olive Oil

It is prepared when ozone is bubbled in olive oil for many days until it slowly begins to solidify. Ozonated olive oil can be applied 2 -3 times a day for several weeks to cure nail fungus.
