Why Use Aromatherapy Inhalers?

Aromatherapy inhalers are a great way to utilize essential oils for energy. Studies have shown that inhaling essential oils can help on an emotional level, as well as a physical level.

An essential oil inhaler is super convenient. You can take it on the go or use at home. Place in purse, at your bedside, in travel bag, on your commute, at work station...anywhere you may need an aromatherapy boost.

The tight cap and lid ensures long-lasting aroma. The cap keeps the wick inside very securely in order to preserve the essential oils and get long lasting scent without the wick drying out.

You can use aromatherapy inhalers over and over. The end cap is purposely snug to preserve the scent, with a little effort the end cap is removable so more oils can be added to the wick. You can use a butter knife or an essential oil key to pop off the bottom cap so more essential oils can be added to the wick.

How to Make Aromatherapy Inhalers for Energy

To make, first place the wick into a small bowl. Add the essential oil blend of choice from the recipes below to the cotton wick in the bowl. Using tweezers, grab the wick and pick up any oils left in the bowl with it. Insert the wick into the inhaler and place on the end cap (base).

To use, place the nasal inhaler near nostrils, then slowly inhale while waving inhaler stick back and forth under nostrils.
