DIY Anxiety Support Inhaler with Essential Oil

Anxiety can come in all shapes and sizes. I sometimes get full-blown panic attacks when something horrible or inconvenient comes up. Little things can also be a pain to handle and can stress me out a lot. Pairing coping mechanisms for anxiety with aromatherapy has been scientifically proven by various studies to be effective stress and anxiety support.

For busy days, I always keep my special homemade Anxiety Away Inhaler close to me. It acts as my security blanket, cause when I start feeling a bit stressed at least I know I always have this little blend with me to keep me calm. Both Blood Orange Essential Oil and Coriander Essential Oil help with negative feelings of anxiety and stress, so you keep your focus!

  • Remove bottom tab of aromatherapy inhaler and pull out cotton.
  • Add essential oils.
  • Re-insert cotton into inhaler and close.
  • To use, unscrew top, place inside one nostril while closing the other and inhale deeply. Repeat with the other nostril. Over time the scent may become less strong. Refresh your inhaler by adding essential oils to the cotton as needed.
