Aromatherapy Inhalers for Sleep, Sinus Infection, Anxiety

by Andrea Butje on March 31, 2014

Multicolored aromatherapy inhalersI love Aromatherapy inhalers!

Aromatherapy inhalers are easy to make, inexpensive, and simple to carry around. I've come up with a few recipes over the years that I make over and over again. I've found that having these on hand gives me a wonderful feeling of being supported in my life, especially when things get a little stressful.

Sleep: Use this one before bed. Leave the Aromatherapy inhaler on your nightstand or bedside table, so if you wake up you can use it again.

Sleep

Recipe:
5 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
5 drops Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana)
5 drops Balsam Copaiba (Copaifera officinalis)

 

 

Sinus Infection Relief: You can use this Aromatherapy inhaler several times a day to help ease a sinus infection.

Sinus Infection Relief

Recipe:
6 drops Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis)
4 drops Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)
5 drops Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora ct. 1,8 cineole)

 

 

Anxiety: Try using this Aromatherapy inhaler when you feel anxious. Inhale a few times slowly and let the aroma calm you.

7 drops Yuzu (Citrus junos)
1 drop Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)
7 drops Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)

 

 

You can get Aromatherapy inhalers in a variety of colors. I like to pair up the "emotion" of the color with the purpose I'm blending for. If I'm making an inhaler for sleep or anxiety, I'll use something calming like blue or purple. If I'm making one for a sinus infection, I'll choose a color that feels bright and opening to me, like yellow. You can find them online. I buy my inhalers from Aromatics International.
