Making your own aromatherapy inhaler is easy; this recipe draws upon the menthol properties of eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint, which help open stuffed nasal passages.

  • 1 tablespoon rock salt
  • 2 drops eucalyptus oil
  • 2 drops rosemary oil
  • 1 drop peppermint oil
  1. Put the rock salt in a vial (or recycle a tincture bottle; make sure it’s been washed and sterilized).
  2. Add the oils and smell.
