Actually the function of the Nasal Mucosa is threefold.

1. Blood vessels are very close to the surface in the mucosa and this acts to warm the incoming air.

2. The Mucosa also moistens the air via it's mucous membranes, trapping foreign particles, viruses and bacteria.

3. Lastly, Olfactory Receptors are located in the Nasal Mucosa giving a person the sense of smell.
