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 the diffuser manufacturer’s instructions to fill the air with a therapeutic aroma.
Inhalation: Put 1-3 drops of essential oil blend 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 Respiratory Blend to 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.
