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
- Put the rock salt in a vial (or recycle a tincture bottle; make sure it’s been washed and sterilized).
- Add the oils and smell.
