It is the season for stuffy noses, congestion and sinus pressure. No one has time for that nor wants to struggle with breathing!

How to Make An Essential Oil Nasal Inhaler:
Gather your supplies and head to the table or your kitchen counter. This takes all of about 60 seconds! Open up your essential oils and grab your wick. Hold your wick in one hand and slowly drop 8 drops of each essential oil onto your wick. You might want to place a paper towel under your wick in case a little oil drips off. I found it helpful to tilt my wick to the left and right while dropping oils on. This helps the oils to soak in a little quicker. Once you have all your oils on the wick, drop into the main part of your inhaler and pop the bottom cap on. There ya go! You have a “Breathe Easy” essential oils Nasal Inhaler!
To use: Just hold close to your nose and breath in. The essential oils will help clear nasal congestion. Allow it a few minutes to begin to work. Then if you still feel stuffy, hold the inhaler close to your nose and breath in again.
Essential oils are powerful and should only be inhaled in small doses for brief periods. Using the DIY nasal inhaler is help you breath in the smells of the essential oils. It is in effect like concentrated aromatherapy.
Please consult with your physician if you have any health concerns as this is not intended to prevent or treat any medical conditions or concerns.

How long does the inhaler lasts before the scent wears off or need to refill?
If you keep the lid on most of the time, it will last for about 3 months. But if you leave the lid off or use it very frequently, you may need to reapply the essential oils in as little as 2 weeks. You can smell when the oils have begun to dissipate.
