How to Do Nasal Insufflations with Ozone
During nasal ozone insufflations a mix of ozone and oxygen is introduced into the sinus area.
For this, a syringe, silicone covers, and a relatively low ozone concentration of 5 to 20 mcg/ml are used.
Nasal insufflations with ozone can be easily done at home.
Introducing ozone into the sinus cavity can help with congestions, stuffy nose, upper respiratory infections, allergies, brain fog, and other brain related conditions.
- oxygen source (either an oxygen tank or an oxygen concentrator) and regulator
- ozone generator
- syringe filling station
- a syringe
- syringe covers
- luer lock connectors
- silicone tubing

|Ozone concentration:||5 to 20 mcg/ml|
|Oxygen flow:||not important, since a syringe is used|
|Gas volume:||10 to 20 ml|
5 to 20 mcg/ml
not important with a syringe
10 to 20 ml
- Screw the low flow regulator onto the oxygen tank.
2. Take a piece of tubing and connect one end to the regulator.
3. Take a luer lock connector and push it into the other end of the silicone tubing.
4. Screw the end with the luer lock onto the “oxygen in” port of the ozone generator.
5. Screw the syringe filling station onto the “ozone out” port of the ozone generator.
6. Make sure the OFF knob on the filling station is turned towards the syringe port.
7. Plug the ozone generator into the power supply.
8. Open the oxygen tank with half a turn on the valve. Watch the gauge jump up on the regulator.
9. Pick the correct settings on your ozone generator. I chose an ozone concentration of 7 mcg/ml which means that I need to set the oxygen flow to 1/4 LPM and the first ozone output dial to 1.
10. Set the oxygen flow on the regulator to 1/4 LPM.
11. Screw the syringe onto the filling station.
12. Set the first dial of the Promolife Dual Cell to one. The second dial remains in the OFF position.
13. Turn the OFF knob on the filling station so that it points towards the destructor. Now ozone/oxygen gas is flowing into the syringe.
14. Fill syringe until the 20 cc mark.
15. Turn the OFF knob on the filling station towards the syringe. This stops the ozone/oxygen flow.
16. Turn the ozone generator off.
17. Turn the regulator to zero.
18. Unscrew the syringe from the syringe filling station. Keep it upright.
19. Put the silicone cover on the syringe.
20. Take a deep breath.
21. Insert the syringe into a nostril. Keep the other nostril closed and inject the content of the syringe into your nose, all the time while holding your breath.
22. Remove the syringe and keep your nose pinched. Keep holding your breath for another 10 seconds.
23. Release the ozone from your nose and mouth by exhaling. Make sure to move away. Do not breathe it back in.
24. Do the same with the other nostril by repeating steps 10 to 23.
25. When you’re done, close the valve of the tank. Don’t exert too much force.
26. Release the pressure in the regulator by opening it all the way, here it’s 4 LPM. Wait until the gauge goes down to zero. It will take only a few seconds. Then set the regulator to zero again.
This is the equipment I used in the pictures above:
- Oxygen source: oxygen tank, (or buy / rent it locally)
- Low flow or pediatric regulator
- Ozone generator: Promolife Dual Cell
- Syringe filling station
- 60 cc ozone resistant syringe
- Silicone covers for the syringe
- luer lock connector
- 3 ft. silicone tubing (I prefer to use silicone tubing instead of PVC tubing for everything. It makes for a tighter fit. I used a 3 ft (ca. 1 m) piece. You may need more or less, depending how far you want to place your oxygen tank from the ozone generator.)
One of my first experiences with ozone were nasal irrigations with ozonated water.
So, it was something close to nasal insufflations.
I loved the irrigations: they were clearing up my mind, lifting my mood, and I was getting rid of the dandruff at the back of my head!
Just by sniffing ozonated water. Amazing!
Nasal insufflations on the other hand I found much harsher than the water, so I never used them as often as the nasal irrigations.
For the purpose of making this guide, it was the first time in over 10 years that I attempted them again. And just like in the past, I found them to be painful and uncomfortable. My nose felt raw for a few days afterwards.
So, I’m not a fan. It’s possible that with a lower concentration the experience would have been more bearable.
But if the need shall arise in the future to treat my sinuses, I’d rather do the irrigations.
