Nasal Inhalers with Essential Oils

Inhaler sticks are my ultimate favorite essential oil self-care product. They are portable and can offer quick relief for a variety of mild symptoms such as sinus congestion or allergies.

How To Mix It All Together:

Disassemble the inhaler stick to remove the inside glass bottle and the wick.

Drop 20 drops of your chosen essential oils into the small glass bottle.

Replace the wick into the glass bottle.

The wick will drink (absorb) the oils.

Replace the cap and casing.


I often drop the essential oil directly onto the wick in the bottle. Especially when I'm topping up but it can spill over the bottle rim. So drop the oil in slowly.

Great Gift Idea:

You can buy these inhaler tubes in a variety of colors or buy plain white ones. The plain white inhaler tubes are great if you want to personalize it with a label. 

Inhalers make really nice personalized and affordable gifts. is always a great online option. I also really like Mountain Rose Herbs for all my supplies.

Do not use any essential oils or essential oil blends if you have any underlying health conditions. Some oils are not safe for children, pregnant women, or pets. Always check with your doctor or certified aromatherapist, if you are unsure about the benefits or contra-indicators of a recipe or its ingredients. ‘A Scented Story’ is solely my platform to share my experiences with essential oils and other natural products. I do not prescribe any treatments.
