Camphor, eucalyptus and peppermint are three essential oils that are used in complementary and alternative medicine to treat a variety of ailments and conditions. Using a nasal inhaler is a very effective way to take in the benefits of those precious oils. This blend may help to reduce swelling and inflammation in your nasal passages and relieve coughs and the upper respiratory passages.
Hold the inhaler just below your nose and slowly inhale. Count slowly to 5 as you inhale. What this does is help your body to absorb and utilize the essential oil. It gives the essential oil molecules a chance to be absorbed into your bloodstream. Once they are there, they can be delivered throughout the body and to the brain as needed. Repeat the above procedure – 2 to 3 times for each nostril.
