Congestion Relief Roll-On: Remedy for Clogged Nose

Over-the-counter cold medicine, though effective in alleviating cold symptoms, can also give me a drowsy after-effect and I just can’t afford that with my busy schedule at home and work. Good thing there is an equally effective all-natural home remedy for clogged nose, the Congestion Relief Roll-On!

This essential oil recipe is in a roll-on so you can conveniently apply to pulse points whenever you feel like you need a boost to counter colds.

The cold weather can sometimes make my brain literally freeze. So, this roll-on is very helpful in relieving my headache.

Also, it smells great and really gives me energy minus the feeling of withdrawals after.

This home remedy for clogged nose is very easy to make!

Breathe Easy EO

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint Essential Oil is known for its sharp and minty aroma, but not many people know what it can do for you! This oil helps soothe and cool your body!* So when you are feeling pent up with your stuffy nose, this oil helps put you at ease.

Breathe Easy Essential Oil Blend

Breathe Easy Essential Oil Blend is made up of Fir Needle, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Lemongrass, Patchouli, and Myrrh Essential Oils. All of these oils put together is a sure-fire way to be a remedy for a clogged nose!*

Almond Oil

Almond Oil is the carrier oil used in this roll-on recipe. Carrier oils are used to dilute the potent essential oils and make them safe to apply to your skin. You can switch these carrier oils depending on personal preference! So, if almond oil isn’t for you, try something else such as Fractionated Coconut Oil or Jojoba Oil!

10 ml Roll-On Bottle

10 mL Roll-On Bottle is so convenient when it comes to applying essential oils! The size is discrete enough to hide in your pocket, and easy enough to just take the top off and roll on pulse points to feel relief!
