Essential Oil Inhalers
We are introducing a new product to our inventory, Essential Oil Inhalers. It is not an inhaler in the typical sense like an Asthmatic inhaler. Instead this inhaler contains a cotton wick inside that has absorbed specific oils for specific situations. Please read below for information about this Essential Oil Inhaler.
The inhaler consists of four parts, the wick, inhaler tube, cover and small plastic cap that holds the wick inside.
To use the inhaler you should unscrew the cover to remove it and smell the wick inside the inhaler for a few minutes if possible. Remember anything is better than nothing, but longer is better. Around two to five minutes is ideal. If you want to make sure that both sides are getting enough of the oils you can hold one nostril and inhale and repeat with the other nostril. This is common for people using Essential Oil Inhalers for sinus or congestion issues
Each inhaler will last for a different length of time based on how often it is open and exposed to the air. Average length of usable inhaler time is about 4 weeks. All of our products are made to order so you have the longest shelf life possible

You can “recharge” your wick by adding more of the original oil that was included in your inhaler. You should wait until you can hardly smell the oils before "recharging" them.
You should replace the wick after 3-4 “recharges” or if you are using a different oil in the inhaler.
When an inhaler is prepared 10-12 drops of the selected essential oils or essential oil blends are added to the cotton wick.
The wick is then put into the inhaler tube and the cap is replaced on the bottom of the inhaler to hold the wick inside. The cap is screwed on and opened when the time has come to put the inhaler to good use.
If you are preparing your own inhaler you should research your oils and know what each brand has to offer and remember if you see a price that’s too good to be true, it most likely is.
We currently only use Young Living essential oils in our products.
For a little help removing the end cap of the inhaler to remove the wick you can open up a paperclip and stick it through the opening until it reaches the cap and you can push hard to pop the end cap off.
Another tip is if you are “recharging” your wick/inhaler you can carefully insert a dropper or pipette into the holes that you smell from and then release a few drops of your selected oil to “recharge” without disassembling any part of the inhaler.
