It is the season for stuffy noses, congestion and sinus pressure. No one has time for that nor wants to struggle with breathing! A lot of people depend on nasal inhalers to clear up their sinuses and while some of those do work, they often contain things that just aren’t great for you in them. So I have decided to share my go-to nasal inhaler recipe that contains just essential oils and is actually perfectly fine for you and even your children! This DIY nasal inhaler is so easy to make and works wonderfully. All you need is your essential oils and a new empty nasal inhaler!
DIY Nasal Inhaler Tutorial
DIY Nasal Inhaler Supplies Needed:
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Lemon Essential Oil
- Nasal Inhaler ( here’s my Amazon affilate link )
Directions for 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!
Have you ever made your own nasal inhaler? This is a very easy product to make. If you are struggling with sinus issues or foresee that you will in the future, go ahead and make a DIY nasal inhaler! Your sinuses will thank you!
*And as I mentioned above, these are perfect for children as well! My 4 year old has used this blend before. You should supervise them with the nasal haler but really they are just breathing in the smells of the essential oils so it like concentrated aromatherapy.
