Store bought items are easy to access but sometimes homemade health helpers give me a bit more peace of mind. That's because I know EXACTLY what the ingredients are. One that has come in handy around our hosehold is a homemade nasal inhaler, especially one designed to help clear a stuffy nose.
Just take 1/4 teaspoon of coarse salt and place in a small glass vial with a tight lid. Add 5 drops of eucalyptus oil and the salt will absorb the oil in a few moments. Shake to activate the mixture and then open the vial and inhale deeply to clear the nasal passages. This technique can be used with any essential oil like lavender for anxiety and peppermint for stimulation.
