Some days are a struggle. Years ago I had a car accident and my back often reminds me of that day. I work at the computer most of the day, and my back tenses up. If I don’t stop to stretch, walk around, drink some water, the pain becomes unbearable.
If you often struggle with muscle tension throughout the day, I suggest you give this homemade muscle tension inhaler a try. It’s very simple to make and you can take it with you everywhere you go.
This video will show you how to make in just a few little and easy steps. I love this idea! Creams and other topical solutions can be messy and hard to use when you’re on the go, which is when many people seem to need them the most. However, an inhaler is small, convenient and easy to use. It’s something that you can carry around with you everywhere you go, so you always have relief at your fingertips.
This inhaler uses essential oils to calm your nervous system, which in turn reduces tension and relaxes your muscles so you feel better.
Muscle Tension Inhaler Recipe
- Rosemary essential oil
- Black spruce essential oil
- Lavender essential oil
- Peppermint essential oil
- Blank inhaler
Place the cotton roll into the inhaler tube and then add your essential oils. Assemble the inhaler, shake it around gently and it’s ready to use. It’s so easy to make and very effective in helping to relieve muscle tension.

Now this inhaler will be very helpful when you’re on the go, but if you suffer with headaches, and other muscle pain and tension, don’t stop at that. Learn what triggers your pain or tension, and take steps to avoid those triggers. Also, as often as possible, take warm baths with Epsom salt and essential oils. You can use the same oils from the inhaler recipe, or try other oils.
Another way to relieve muscle pain is a nice massage after that Epsom salt bath. Lavender oil is great for massaging tense muscles. Find some lavender oil massage blends and ask your spouse (or a family member) to give you a nice massage before bed time. Hopefully you’re now equipped to deal with any muscle tension or pain.
