How To Make 5 Easy Aromatherapy Inhalers For Sleep, Sinuses, And More

Keep them in your purse, car, or pocket for at-the-ready relief!

Essential oils are so powerful that you can experience some therapeutic effects just from smelling them. This can be especially effective for conditions related to your sinuses, as well as mood conditions and sleep problems. I’ve touched on this idea a few times here on my blog, like a few years ago when I shared how to make your own aromatherapy jar to treat sinus problems.

But I recently came across a simple and inexpensive product that can make this process even easier. I found these nifty little inhaler sticks on Amazon, and I was immediately intrigued. They have a wick inside them that is made to hold essential oils, which is covered by a slender cap that makes it easy to put up into your nose. You simply put the inhaler stick into your nostril and breathe deeply (like a nasal spray, but without the spray).

I still love my original aromatherapy-in-a-jar idea for home use, but these little inhaler sticks turned out to be a great option having something smaller to keep in your purse or at your desk. Plus the inhaler sticks are fairly inexpensive – I bought a pack of 12 of them for about $12 on Amazon! Here are a few different kinds of aromatherapy inhalers you can make to treat different kinds of symptoms!

(Since everyone’s collection of essential oils is different, I included both single oils and blends in my recommendations. Blends make things easy because they’re already mixed, but single oils are more versatile because you can create your own mixtures. But feel free to use whatever you have!)
