Ep 13 - 3 reasons aromatherapy inhalers are a must have part of your essential oil kit

Aromatherapy Inhalers are super powerful because

  • the sense of smell (the olfactory system) is directly connected to the limbic area of the brain, which is also known as the emotional brain. 
  • When you smell essential oils they don't need to pass through all the layers of skin, so they very quickly enter your bloodstream.
  • When you smell essential oils they quickly reach the upper respiratory system and help conditions such as sinusitis and head colds.

3 types of inhalers

Plastic inhalers (least expensive but you only use them once) 

Aluminium inhalers

Wooden inhalers

3 things aromatherapy inhalers are particularly good for

  •  Anxiety & stress
  • Sinusitis/Hay fever/Head colds
  • Headaches



- 2 drops of Grapefruit essential oil,

- 2 drops of Lavender essential oil,

- 3 drops of Benzoin essential oil

Don't use lavender for anyone who's pregnant, don't use grapefruit on skin that will be exposed to bright sunlight or a sunbed within 48 hours.

Sinusitis/Hay fever/Head colds

- 7 drops of Eucalyptus,

- 7 drops of Chamomile

Don't use lavender or Chamomile for anyone who's pregnant. A good alternative is 10 drops of Eucalyptus and 10 drops of Benzoin.

Don't use Lavender, or Basil for anyone who's pregnant. A good alternative is 10 drops each of Benzoin and Eucalyptus.
