My whole life I have struggled with nasal canal swelling, which has made it difficult to breathe through my nose.
After doing some research on the effectiveness of essential oils, I started my new regimen by diluting 15 drops of carrier oil to 1 drop of Lavender oil. Then I applied this mixture at the opening of my nostrils. Within minutes the swelling was relieved and I was able to breathe easily and quietly through my nose.
My son struggles with the same problem, so I tried it on him, and diluted 1 Tbsp of carrier oil to 1 drop of Lavender oil. Again, within minutes he was no longer snorting in frustration and was easily and quietly breathing through his nose.
I have found that using the roller fitment makes for a much easier and faster application. We both now apply when we wake up and before we go to bed, and anytime it is otherwise needed.
