Aromatherapy Personal Inhaler Blend for Congestion

Aromatherapy Recipe for Congestion


Important Safety Comments

Be sure that you check the safety information for each essential oil to ensure that it is appropriate for your personal use.


  • Put on a pair of surgical/exam gloves (strongly recommended).
  • In a tiny bowl, combine the essential oils for your chosen blend.
  • If you do not want the inhaler to be intensely aromatic, you can blend approximately 5-15 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil into your essential oil blend to dilute it. You will need to experiment with the dilution to achieve the aromatic strength that you desire.
  • Drop the wick into the bowl.
  • Using your tweezers, rotate the wick around so that it fully absorbs the essential oil blend.
  • Once all of the essential oil is absorbed, use the tweezers to carefully pick up the wick and drop it into the wick enclosure.
  • Firmly press the end cap onto the bottom of the wick enclosure.
  • Screw the outer cover onto the wick enclosure.
  • Add a label to your inhaler.
  • Keep the cover on the inhaler anytime that you are not actually using the inhaler.

To Use

Raise the inhaler to your nose and inhale. Use several times daily. Immediately discontinue use of your inhaler if you experience any adverse reactions.
