The benefits of the inhalation patch are:
When placed on the upper chest area, the aromatherapy vapors come up to the nose to be inhaled, nothing goes into the skin.
How Aromatherapy & Essential Oils Work - Linda Halcon PhD., formerly of the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the U of MN explains aromatherapy as . . . "When we inhale through the nose, airborne molecules interact with the olfactory organs and, almost immediately, the brain . . . The limbic part of the brain is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance (Higley & Higley, 1998). Knowing this, we can hypothesize how inhalation of essential oils can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects!"
Absolutely you can use your own oils with our Blank inhalation patch. Just place 1-2 drops of essential oil onto the reservoir. Not all bottles have the same orifice hole size, so be careful not to over the reservoir. You may need 1- 1.5 drops.
