  1. It is used in headache, sinusitis etc cases – for local application. The idea behind this practice is, it generates heat, and melts away the occluded sputum and sinuses.
    It is not commonly used for curing thyroid nodules. But the Ayurveda doctor might have prescribed it based on his own experience.
