Aromatherapy Nasal Inhaler
One of the best ways to use essential oils is via inhalation through the nasal passages. Aromatherapy inhalers are a powerful tool to assist with both respiratory and emotional balance. They are easy to make and even easier to use!
For Respiratory Support -
Aromatherapy inhalers are extremely effective in providing support for respiratory issues such as colds, flu, sinus issues, congestion, allergies - to name just a few. Using a personal inhaler for deep lung issues delivers greater efficacy than that of a room diffuser.
For Emotional Support -
Aromatherapy inhalers are also extremely effective for your emotional state. They can be wonderful and supportive for depression, anxiety, stress, and nervousness. Essential oils work in a number of ways but the quickest way the aroma of an essential oil reaches the body is by inhalation through the nose; smells trigger responses in people through the stimulation of the limbic part of the brain, where moods and emotions are governed.
Nasal inhaler instructions :
1. In a glass container, soak absorbent pad in essential oil(s) for at least one minute. The pad should absorb about one milliliter (20 drops) of oil. Avoid touching the soaked wick with your hands as you may have a reaction.
2. Using a tweezers, place the pad inside the inner cylinder and seal with a plug. (Plug needs to be pushed in hard.)
3. Place the large cylinder over small inner cylinder and screw in tightly. Your inhaler is now ready to use! Make sure that you cap it when not in use and affix a label with the contents for reference.
You are now ready to use your aromatherapy inhaler! Simply uncap the inhaler and take a few quick sniffs (or one deep inhale) of the blend as required. Avoid contact with the skin and mucous membranes. When the scent fades, simply re-moisten the wick with more oil.
