How to use the Sinus Relief essential oil blend to relieve congestion:
The best way to use essential oils to relieve a stuffy nose is through inhalation. You can inhale oils in a number of ways.
Burning Candles – make either an organic coconut wax or soy candle using between 5 to 7% of sinus relief essential oil blend.
Steam inhalation, combine essential oils with hot water to create therapeutic steam. Add three to seven drops of sinus relief essential oil blend into boiling water in a large heatproof bowl. Place a towel over your head, covering the bowl and breathe through your nose for no more than two minutes at a time. Keep your eyes closed to prevent eye irritation.
Direct inhalation refers to inhaling the essential oil right from the bottle. You may also add a few drops onto a handkerchief, tissue or cotton ball and breathe it in.
Diffusers disperse essential oils throughout the air, allowing them to dilute before being inhaled. Add 3 to 7 drops to an air diffuser.
Bathing - For an aromatherapy bath, add a 5 to 7 drops of sinus relief essential oil blend to your bathwater.
Massage - For an aromatherapy massage, add 5 to 7 drops of sinus relief essential oil to your favorite massage lotion or massage oil.

*Our Natural fragrance oils are International Fragrance Association (IFRA), compliant and certified. They are made with a MINIMUM of 80% natural plant based ingredients and essential oils. Propylene glycol (a synthetic plant based fixative) is what holds and ‘fixes’ our fragrances, ensuring a long lasting scent in cosmetics, soaps and candles. PHTHALATE FREE. Our natural fragrances are completely oil based, and are suitable to use in the oil stages of cosmetic manufacturing and soaps (after trace formation). Due to their low vaporization/boiling point, natural fragrance oil should be added to your candle creations at the lowest possible temperature - when the soy wax starts to cloud / solidify.
