If you’re a nervous flyer like me (Kristen), then you’re going to love this simple, yet very effective device. Living Libations Petite Salt Inhaler cleanses and fortifies the breath and airways. You can add any essential oil to it depending on what you’re using it for. I use lavender for anxiety, peppermint for headaches and orange for an energy boost. The device is also great to use if you’re congested. Add in a little Eucalyptus and clear your passage way. The Petite Salt Inhaler fits nicely in the palm of your hand and is perfect for travel because it is only 5 inches long and weighs about 4 oz.
How to use: This simple tool is a breeze to use. To add essential oils, remove the plug at the bottom of the inhaler, insert three to ten drops of essential oil into the base, and re-seal the plug. Hold the pipe to the mouth, inhale deeply, and exhale through the nose. You can also practice alternate nostril breathing, holding the inhaler to each nostril and inhaling deeply while exhaling through the other nostril (Nadi Shodhana Pranayama). Repeat for up to twenty minutes. Since the inhaler is placed directly on the nose and mouth, it’s important that inhalers are not shared.
