the Benefits of Using an Aromatherapy Inhaler

Don’t you love the wonderful aroma of walking through a flower garden, or the whiff of lilacs in bloom?  And doesn’t the smell make you feel good and refreshed?

By using aromatherapy inhalers, you can have your favorite scents with you all the time, and receive the benefits of the essential oils used in a particular inhaler.

Benefits of Using an Inhaler

Depending on what you want, using different essential oils can help how you feel, lift your spirits, relax you, offer immune support, give you energy, etc...

For instance, eucalyptus and balsam fir can help with your immunity; lavender and clary sage can help with sleep, and rosemary and orange can help you focus.

There are many places to look up how each essential oil may help you.  I utilize the Aromahead Blog a lot to learn about different oils and their benefits.

How to Use an Inhaler

Inhalers are very simple to use.  You just unscrew the cap and inhale from the tube, counting slowly as you inhale, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.  The essential oil molecules get absorbed into your bloodstream via your nasal cavity and get dispersed throughout your body.

Not only are they simple to use, but they are small enough to take with you on the go.  So you never have to be without one.

Where to Get Inhalers

You can make your own inhalers or purchase them.  I personally like to make mine because then I can create my own scents with the essential oils I have.  The key to that is to write down how you make it, so if you really like it, you will know how to make it next time.

If you are a DIY’er, here is a site that can help get you started on a number of different blends.

I get my blank inhalers off of eBay because I like the price, and I get an array of colors.  But there are many places on the internet and in stores, where you can purchase them.

If you are not up to making your own inhalers, you can purchase them.  Many natural health food stores will sell them and you can find them at my Etsy shop.

Using an inhaler is a wonderful and simple way to help you enjoy a healthier lifestyle.  So go ahead, and take a deep breath!
