Inhaling essential oils is as simple as opening up the bottle and breathing in and out. You can also place a few drops on a tissue to do this. Keeping your breath relaxed as you inhale will allow your body to send signals to your mind to relax. This is a good way to calm down and regain composure when you are feeling stressed or anxious.

Another way to inhale your essential oils is through steam inhalation. Simply boil 2-3 cups of water, pour it into a bowl, and add 2-5 drops of your oil of choice into the water. Place your nose about a foot away from the bowl and cover your head and bowl with a towel to trap the steam. Inhale the steam slowly. This is a great way to use both relaxing and energizing oils, day or night.
