Make a Travel Inhaler for Immune Support and Sleep

How to make an Aromatherapy travel inhaler to support you on your journeys!

 

I love to travel!

My favorite trips involve going to meet small-scale farmers and essential oil distillers—the people who grow the plants and make the essential oils I use and love every day.

I adore experiencing new places, meeting new friends face to face (some of whom I’ve known online for many years), trying new foods, and seeing the ways that the farmers and distillers put their whole hearts into their work.

These small farms and distilleries are often located in distant parts of the world, meaning I get to go on long trips that take me through multiple time zones. While I deeply love it, all this travel can sometimes put stress on my body and disrupt my sleep schedule.

I’ll bet you can guess how I support myself through this . . . I use essential oils!

I have a few favorite blends I like to use for travel. This is a recipe for an inhaler that accomplishes two things at once—it supports immunity and relaxation. You can use it to help yourself stay healthy while you’re surrounded by a lot of people on a plane, and to help yourself get some quality rest to avoid too much “jet lag.”

Ready for Travel Inhaler

  • 5 drops Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
  • 3 drops Bergamot essential oil (Citrus bergamia)
  • 3 drops Cedarwood essential oil (Juniperus virginiana)
  • 4 drops Frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carterii)

Aromatherapy inhalers look a little like lip balm tubes. There’s a plastic sleeve with a cotton insert. All you have to do is soak the cotton insert in the essential oils, and put it into the plastic sleeve. You can use a little bowl to soak the cotton in the essential oils, or you can slip the insert right into the plastic sleeve, and drop the essential oils onto it. Once you’re ready, snap the bottom of the inhaler into place. It should last about two months.

You can watch me make an inhaler in this YouTube video.

I hope you have fun going on adventures and using essential oil to support your health!

Travelling is interesting hobby for many. But immune to every situation across journey is not possible all times. But this inhaler will help us for sure to improve our immunity.

For the travel inhaler…..what would you tell recommend to replace cedarwood. I have found out it does not agree with me.

Thank you

Hi Earlene!
For the ‘Ready for Travel Inhaler’ you could use Lavender in place of Cedarwood.
