Make Your Own Aromatherapy Inhaler

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. These essential oils can be prepared and used in numerous ways: to be inhaled, massaged into the skin in dilute form, and swallowed as teas or tinctures.

Having an inhaler is a great way to have aromatherapy whenever and wherever you need it. Open the bottle and take a few deep breaths during chemo treatment is a simple and quick way to reduce nausea and anxiety.  But if you want to experiment with different blends of oils, you should try making your own inhaler.

All you need is:

  • Teaspoon of coarse sea salt.
  • Small glass or PET plastic bottle. 
  • Essential Oils 

This is one of my favourite blends and is great for reducing anxiety:

10 drops  Bergamot 
4 drops  Lavender 
4 drops  Orange 
1 drop  Geranium 
1 drop  Ylang ylang or Chamomile 

 

Use this list to create your own perfect blend.
