Inhaling aromatherapy oils is usually facilitated by using an aromatherapy burner or room spray. However everyone in the area is then subjected to the aroma in the room. The idea of using an inhaler or aroma stick is unique and innovative in that an inhaler doesn’t only have to be for nasal congestion. Inhalers infused with various essential oils can then be used for specific purposes.
We use a natural fibre known as dentist’s cotton wool, which is soaked in the essential oil and inserted into the inhaler. Inhaling essential oils via the mucosa membrane of the nose takes approximately five minutes for the essential oils to take effect, as opposed to approximately ten minutes through absorption via the skin.
The effect of using an inhaler
Using an inhaler allows you to control what aroma and how much of the aroma you want to inhale, and only you are able to smell the scent. Inhaling deeply or gently controls the amount of oil breathed in. The aromatic molecules reach the nerve endings at the top of the nose (the nerve endings of the first cranial nerve ) and a message translated from these aromatic molecules is sent directly to the most primitive part of the brain, the limbic system. Our feelings and emotions are immediately stimulated or relaxed depending on the oil molecules inhaled.
Focusniff for concentration and alertness
Our Focusniff inhaler contains lemon, peppermint, geranium and rosemary which have been combined to form a semi-sharp aroma with a tinge of sweetness that is stimulating in its effect. This aromatic stick can be used to help combat fatigue while working, studying or driving. It helps with concentration and alertness which helps perk you up when you are feeling tired. The act of inhaling the oils also brings you to the present moment, helping to focus on the here and now. If you are travelling across time zones Focusniff is also useful for staying awake, and to cope with the effects of jetlag.
Stressniff for calming and relaxing
Our Stessniff inhaler contains neroli, camomile and lavender which are all calming soothing and relaxing. The combined effect of this blend is helpful for numerous conditions such as stress, sleeplessness, panic attacks and for taking a moment to pause, breathe, and to feel relaxed. In the UK certain oncology wards are encouraging patients to inhale aromatic sticks to feel less anxious during chemo treatments.
Your personal aromatic inhaler stick can be carried around discretely in your pocket or hand bag and used as frequently as required and only YOU will be able to smell the wonderful aromas and benefit from them.
Yours in health
