Breathe Deep Roll-On Recipe for Stuffy Nose

There’s nothing worse than a stuffy nose. You know the feeling: your head feels like it’s twice its normal size, your sinuses are pounding, and you can’t breathe through your nose no matter how hard you try.

Thankfully, there’s a natural way to get relief. Our Breathe Deep Roll-On can help to open your airways and allow you to breathe deeply. In no time at all, you’ll be able to breathe easily and get the relief you need.

What I Love About This Breathe Deep Roll-On

I love using this roll-on to ease a stuffy nose. I always keep a bottle in my purse so that I can use it whenever I need it. It’s really helped me to feel better when I’m not feeling well.

What’s in This Roll-On Recipe?

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Eucalyptus Essential Oil is here to clear the air! This powerful essential oil is known for its ability to support respiratory function and ease seasonal discomfort. But that’s not all – eucalyptus can also help to boost immunity and energize the body.

Bay Essential Oil

Bay Essential Oil is a natural tool to help clear your sinuses and help you breathe easier. It is known for its ability to boost immunity and support respiratory health. It’s also said to be helpful in promoting a sense of calm.

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedarwood Essential Oil is one of my favorite oils to use in an essential oil roll-on for a stuffy nose. This oil helps clear congestion and ease breathing difficulties. Not only does it support your respiratory system, but it also helps to calm you and promotes rest.

Fractionated Coconut Oil

Looking for a good carrier oil for your essential oil roll-on? Fractionated coconut oil is a great option! This light, non-greasy oil absorbs quickly into the skin, making it ideal for topical use. Plus, it helps to dilute the essential oils so they’re not too strong for use on the skin.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

Some essential oil recipes are not generally safe to use if you are pregnant. Consult your doctor prior to use.

This essential oil recipe is safe to use with kids aged 10+.
