Inhale and release...
Nasal inhalers are like pocket-sized diffusers that allow you to discretely enjoy the aromatic benefits of essential oils wherever you go! You can use an inhaler for allergies, colds, sleep, anxiety, stress, cravings & more! Keep reading for six recipes that you can use for yourself or at your next make & take class. If you are interested in purchasing nasal inhalers, you can find them in our shop here.
Nasal inhalers are super easy to make and use. Plus, they last for quite a while. All you have to do is add essential oils to the cotton wick, insert it inside the inhaler tube, and secure the round cap on the bottom.
To use your inhaler, unscrew the outer shell and hold the inhaler tube to the entrance of your nose before taking in several deep breaths. You can cover the other side of your nose for an even deeper inhale.
Your inhaler should last for many months. If you notice the scent starts to fade, simply add more oils to the wick.
Let's start with the basics. Almost everyone who uses essential oils will have these three staples:
- 5 drops Lemon
- 5 drops Peppermint
- 5 drops Lavender
