Materials you'll need:

  • Throughout your shower, take deep breaths and inhale the refreshing Eucalyptus scent.

Sweet Orange, French Lavender, and Frankincense Steam Inhalation

Steaming is a classic way to get aromatic support at home, and it's a perfect choice for sick days. To elevate the experience and enhance the soothing aroma, you can use a blend of Sweet Orange, French Lavender, and Frankincense essential oils.

Here's how to create a calming steam inhalation session:


  • Boil a pot of water and let it cool slightly for a minute or two. You want the water to be hot but not scalding.
  • Carefully pour the hot water into a large, heatproof bowl.
  • Add a 3 drops of each essential oil to the hot water. Sweet Orange, with its uplifting and fresh scent, complements the calming and soothing notes of French Lavender and Frankincense.

  • Lean over the bowl and drape a towel over your head, creating a makeshift tent. Make sure the towel drapes down to the sides to trap the steam effectively.
  • Close your eyes, inhale deeply, and allow the fragrant steam to envelop you. Take slow, deliberate breaths and focus on the soothing aroma.
