Lay in a washcloth, wring, and apply to the area in need for approximately 1-5 minutes. Dip, wring, and apply 3 more times.
Diffusion: Follow diffuser manufacturer’s instructions to fill the air with therapeutic aroma.
Easy alternatives when you don’t have a diffuser:
Place 2-4 drops of Breathe Easy Blend of essential oils on several cotton balls or tissues; place nearby or tuck into the grate of fan or air vent in your home or car.
Inhalation: Put 1-3 drops of essential oil on a tissue and inhale the aroma through your nose. Pause and inhale again.
(Avoid touching your nose with the tissue.)
Inhalation, Hot Water: Add 1-2 drops of Breathe Easy Blend of essential oils in a small bowl of hot water. Keeping your eyes tightly closed, lean over the bowl and breathe in deeply yet gently, pause then exhale. Continue for 30 seconds. Inhale through your nose for respiratory or sinus conditions and through your mouth for throat issues or coughs. Repeat as desired.
