An Aromatherapy inhaler recipe that offers seasonal allergy relief

A stroll through a forest can be the epitome of tranquility!

Being enveloped by nature, basking in the lush greenery and the towering trees, is a truly restorative way to unwind after a hectic day.

In Japan, this soothing experience is often referred to as "forest bathing," a testament to the healing power of simply being in the bosom of nature. . . .

But, oh, the plight of allergy sufferers!

The very thought of venturing into the woods might provoke a sneezing fit or cause your eyes to water and itch uncontrollably. (That's if your allergies haven't already confined you indoors!)

Imagine if, instead of triggering your allergies, a walk in the woods actually helped alleviate them. Sounds too good to be true?

I have an allergy inhaler recipe you can make that offers that effect. 

This handy allergy inhaler can be used before you embark on your "forest bathing" adventure and can even accompany you on your walk. It aims to soothe inflammation and minimize your body's reactions to allergens.

Take a deep breath and enjoy nature!

A Walk in The Woods Recipe

I Can Walk in the Woods!" Allergy Inhaler


  • 7 drops Cedarwood Oil (Juniperus virginiana)

  • 5 drops Frankincense Oil (Boswellia carterii)

  • 3 drops Black Spruce Oil (Picea mariana)


  • Blank inhaler with an organic cotton or polyester wick 


  • Slide the wick into the inhaler.

  •  Drop the essential oils right onto the wick.

  •  Snap the plastic bottom into place.

I like to think of trees as being very supportive of us.

It's hard not to marvel at the benevolent nature of trees. They provide us with shelter and contribute to our well-being in myriad ways, from offering us delightful nuts and fruits to their precious resins and exquisite essential oils.

Isn't it remarkable how nature continually supports us, particularly through the potent natural plant essences known as essential oils?

These concentrated extracts, distilled from the very essence of plants, encapsulate the therapeutic properties of the natural world. Derived from flowers, leaves, bark, stems, and roots, essential oils represent the heart and soul of the plant, containing its healing attributes. They're nature's pharmacy, providing a range of health benefits, from calming the mind to fortifying immunity and relieving allergy symptoms.

Moreover, each essential oil possesses its unique aroma, leading us on an olfactory journey that can be both soothing and invigorating. Like a bottled piece of the forest, they allow us to introduce the restorative power of nature into our homes and even into our pockets with something as compact as an inhaler. 

It's truly astounding to contemplate how the grandeur of a forest can be concentrated into such a small, yet potent, drop of essential oil. Embracing these natural plant essences enables us to strengthen our bond with nature, nourishing our bodies and minds in a holistic and sustainable manner.

So, take a deep, invigorating breath and immerse yourself in the wonders of nature!

Next time you inhale the aromatic scent of an essential oil, remember you're drawing on a piece of the natural world's healing essence. Breathe it in and let nature do its work!
