Here is an easy project you can make at home using essential oils. Essential oil inhalers are all the rage. They are a safe way to enjoy essential oils and experience the aromatherapeutic benefits. I am going to show you an easy way to make an essential oil scent bottle.

For this project I’m using essential oils which can help you breathe easy. I sometimes have sinus issues due to weather, air quality, forced air heat, etc. I use these oils to open my nasal passages.

Safety Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. I encourage you to do your own research into essential oil safety. This recipe I am sharing is an essential oil blend that works for me. You should never ingest essential oils or use them directly on the skin. Essential oils are extremely potent and must be diluted before they can be used as perfume or in creams and lotions.

To use as my inhaler, I purchased a cute bottle set on Amazon. The bottles come is three small sizes and have cork stoppers.

I call this blend Breathe Easy. It combines three of my favorite essential oils that are good for when you have a cold, a stuffy nose, or allergies. They open the nasal passages and allow you to breathe easier.

Of course, there is no official medical proof that this is the case. But these are the EOs I like to diffuse when I’m feeling stuffy or when my sinuses are acting up.

When I lived in Los Angeles I always bemoaned the fact that the air was so dry. I grew up on the east coast where the air is much more humid. When I moved to Redondo Beach I found that my breathing improved because we always had a constant sea breeze coming off the Pacific Ocean. Because of this, I decided to also add a few pieces of pink sea salt to remind me of that ocean breeze.

To use this essential oil scent bottle, I uncork the stopper and breathe in the scent of the oils. I take three deep breaths and then put the cork back on. I find it helps, and the scent is lovely. If you want to wear your blend as a perfume, add 3/4 ounce of jojoba oil and mix well.

I hope you make an essential oil scent bottle for yourself. Even if you don’t have breathing issues, you can make scent bottles to enhance your mood.
