Handy Essential Oil Inhaler Recipe for Anxiety

Anxiety can come in all shapes and sizes. Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress. It’s a feeling of fear or apprehension about what’s to come. Whether you’re speaking in front of a crowd, taking an exam, or dealing with work stress, most people have had times of anxiety.

Pairing coping mechanisms for anxiety with aromatherapy has been scientifically proven by various studies to be effective in protecting against symptoms of anxiety and stress. If I’m on the go or don’t have time for other forms of self-care, I turn to my anxiety relief inhaler instead. It’s small enough to fit in a pocket or a purse, so I can bring it with me anywhere I might need to calm down! Plus, it smells so refreshing and clean that it gives me an uplifting boost and extra energy.

Anxiety Relief Inhaler


  • 3 drops Orange Essential Oil

  • 1 drop Energy Essential Oil Blend

  • Aromatherapy Inhaler


  • Mix essential oils in a small bowl.
  • Open the inhaler by lifting the bottom circular tab. Remove the cotton pad and place it in an essential oil mixture.
  • Once the pad has absorbed the mixture, replace the cotton into the inhaler.
  • To use, place near one side of the nose while closing the other and inhale deeply. Repeat on the other side. Refresh essential oil mixture as needed. Use this inhaler to help calm anxiety.


  • It can be hard to open the tab on the bottom of the inhaler. If you can’t get it open, you can drop the oils into the hole at the top of the inhaler. If you do this, you should be careful to wipe the inhaler down with a paper towel so you don’t get any oil on their hands. 
  • The inhaler has a cover to help the aroma last longer.
  • You can refresh the inhaler as needed by adding more oils to it.
