Wouldn’t it be convenient to have a personal oil diffuser with you everywhere you go?
To smell the amazing aroma of oils and to experience the benefits at times when you need them most?
Well, that’s exactly what an essential oil inhaler can be for you!
They are basically tiny diffusers that you can keep in your pocket or purse to be pulled out at any given moment. They go with you everywhere, providing you with the oils and aromas you need in any situation.
Keep reading to see if you need this in your life.
So What Even Is An Essential Oil Inhaler?
Essential oil personal inhalers are basically like little personal diffusers. You can take them anywhere, use them everywhere and get the benefits of essential oils whether you are at the grocery, on a hike, or literally anywhere else.
They are little pocket sized tubes basically. Inside is a cotton wick. You apply a few drops of essential oils to the cotton wick and put the plastic tube over it. Then simply lift it to your nose and inhale!
They are super simple, but it makes using essential oils so much more portable and easier when traveling or in the middle of your everyday activities.
When not in use, keep the outer cover on it to keep the oils fresh inside. Depending on how often you open the essential oil inhaler, these can last up for a month before needing to add more essential oils to the cotton.
When Should You Use Essential Oil Inhalers?
These are perfect for any situation where you don’t have an actual diffuser and need the benefits or using oils aromatically.
You can take them with you to work to be used throughout the day, giving you boosts of energy and to help your mood. You could also use oils that will help you to focus and stay productive.
You can take them outside while you are walking or hiking to help with seasonal allergies.
You can send them to school with your kids to help them boost their immune system throughout the day, or to help with seasonal allergies.
You can use them while traveling, whether on a plane or while you are at your destination if you didn’t want to pack a diffuser.
It’s also great to use when you are around other people who either don’t like the particular oil you want to smell, or who just don’t want to smell oils in general. Use this to breathe the oils in without bothering others!
Our Favorite Essential Oil Inhaler
Most essential oil inhalers are pretty much the same. A cotton wick in a tube, with an outer case to keep it secure. They can either be plastic or metal, and come in various colors. Some inhalers come with labels so that you can have multiple different oils ready to go at a moments notice.
Prime Natural Metal Oil Inhalers
This is my favorite essential oil inhaler. I love that these are metal. They are durable and should last a long time. I also love the colors.
This set comes with 5 inhalers (each a different color) with 10 cotton wicks. They are 3.5 inches long and are just perfect to carry in your pocket, purse, or somewhere in your car.
Other Popular Essential Oil Personal Inhalers
Kare and Kind Nasal Inhaler
The Kare and Kind Nasal Inhaler set comes with 20 inhalers tubes (10 different colors), 20 wicks, labels for the tubes and droppers.
They are made of plastic, but are perfect for having a bunch of different inhalers ready to go for your kids. The labels are super helpful so that you don’t have to guess which one is which.
Zison Oil Inhaler
The Zison inhaler set comes with 24 inhalers, 36 wicks, 36 labels, droppers and tweezers. The plastic inhalers are different from the ones above as they come in a neutral white color, if you aren’t a fan of bright colors.
Prime Natural Aluminum Inhaler
The Prime Natural all aluminum inhaler is a single inhaler made entirely of aluminum alloy which will never rust when using with oils. It comes with 1 inhaler and 5 wicks. It’s clean, simple and robust.
Other inhalers either use glass or plastic for the inner tube that holds the wick, but this inhaler uses aluminum for both the inner and outer tubes.
Essential Oil Inhaler Recipes
Using essential oils in your inhaler isn’t too different from using oils at any other time. Oils provide specific benefits regardless of how and when they are used (for the most part).
So if you aren’t feeling well, bring an inhaler to work with oils that promote wellness and boost your immune system will still be the way to go.
So it’s more about thinking when you might need an essential oil nasal inhaler, and preparing to have those oils available then. Here are a few essential oil inhaler recipes for the times I think they would prove to be most beneficial.
