Now you can take your aromatherapy wherever you go with these sleek, compact aluminum and glass inhalers in stylish blue, pink, or silver. Inhalers can easily be tucked into pockets, purses, backpacks and more for a quick aromatherapy moment on the go.
Each inhaler is 3.5” long with .75” diameter, in your choice of silver, blue, or pink, and comes with one 100% cotton wick.
There are 5 parts to an inhaler:
100% Cotton wick holds the oil – no spilling, leaking or dripping!
2” long glass vial holds the wick and essential oils securely
The inhaler cap is the part that you sniff from, and screws onto the glass vial
The lid slides on and off yet fits securely to ensure long-lasting aroma
The outer shell protects the wick and essential oil from sunlight
Replacement wick packages come with 10 wicks: $3 each
Inhaler with 1 wick: $3.95 (choice of blue, silver, or pink)
How to use your inhaler:
You can fill the inhaler with the essential oil or blend of your choice. To use, simply remove the cap, hold the inhaler under your nose and take a deep breath. Because the cotton core holds the essential oils inside the inhaler, there’s no concern of getting the oils on your skin. This makes the inhaler an option for children ages 8 and older, since they can smell as often as they like, without getting oil in their eyes or mouth.
1. Disassemble all inhaler parts
2. Add 10 – 20 drops of essential oil directly into the glass vial.
3. Insert wick, leaving ¼ inch sticking out (it is normal for some oil to remain unabsorbed in the bottom of the vial. The wick will slowly absorb the remaining oil over time.)
4. Reassemble the inhaler
To refill, remove the wick with tweezers and use a clean replacement wick (if you’re refilling with the same oil, you can re-use the same wick)
Aromatherapy, at its core, is the use of scent to promote physical, psychological, and emotional balance. Our sense of smell is 10,000 times more sensitive than our sense of taste, and works directly with the limbic system, which controls our basic emotions, behavior, long-term memory, and smell. The limbic system stores and interprets emotional significance associated with different aromas to trigger behavioral responses in our bodies. If you’ve ever noticed a certain aroma calms you down, or puts you “on guard”, this is your limbic system at work.
Breathing in essential oils introduces the chemical components of each oil to the olfactory nerves in the nasal cavity, where each molecule reacts with specific nerve receptors, sending messages directly to the limbic system. Inhalation is often the quickest, most effective way to trigger the intended effects in your body with essential oils. Using an inhaler can help with travel anxiety, congestion and respiratory irritations, mood enhancement at work, concentration in school, and so much more… click here to read more information on how to make your own aromatherapy inhalers.
