Frequently Asked Questions

What are AromaStick Natural Inhalers?

AromaSticks are inhalers filled with 100% organic essential oils. They contain no carrier oils and absolutely nothing artificial - which means not toxins, no synthetic fragrances and no fertilizers make their way into this product. What you get is the pure, concentrated power of nature.  Carefully designed and blended, they can give you a boost of energy or a moment of relaxation simply by sniffing different scents through your nose. 


Why use an AromaStick?

Our sense of smell is an incredible thing. Not only does smell have a direct input into the brain where it can influence mood and behaviour, but our bodies react to smells faster than anything else (less than 200ms) and now you can take those benefits wherever you go. Each AromaStick has been carefully researched (see below) and developed to help with specific situations ranging from a lack of energy or focus through to the need for relaxation. Easy to use and small enough to fit into your purse or pocket, nothing is more convenient than an AromaStick at helping you cope with whatever everyday life throws at you.


How does an AromaStick work?

In short, it's aromatherapy-on-the-go but in fact, it's a little bit more nuanced than that. AromaSticks work by delivering the scents, highly concentrated, directly to the nose with each sniff which published studies show is the most effective way of unlocking the benefits of aromas. Once inhaled, the scents very quickly produce positive effects by influencing the regions of our brain responsible for mood, emotion, behaviour and homeostatic balance.


Why use an inhaler?

Research has shown that the more concentrated the scent, the more powerful the effect on the body. In fact, scents delivered directly to the nose have an effect 300% more powerful than the same scent released into the room and outperforms other methods of aromatherapy. The best way of getting scents to the nose is with a nasal inhaler. In addition to this, pure essential oils can cause allergic reactions if they come into contact with your skin - using a nasal inhaler means that there is no chance of this happening.


How do I use an AromaStick?

Simply twist the cap open, hold directly under your nose and, holding one nostril closed, sniff deeply. Then repeat with the other nostril and let the scents work their magic. 


How often should I use an AromaStick?

You can use an AromaStick as often as you like, or only when you need a boost. The choice is yours.


How long does an AromaStick last?

AromaSticks last up to six months after opening. But do make sure to screw the cap on tightly after use so the scent can’t escape. Storing them in a cool place also helps them last longer too.


Can essential oils work in an antibacterial manner?

Essential oils are naturally antibacterial with several oils having the additional benefit of acting in an anti-inflammatory manner. This makes  the vapors of certain essential oils ideally suited for dealing with nasal or respiratory tract systems caused by seasonal rhinitis, (which is the result of allergens such as pollen) and cold and flu (which is the result of bacteria) among others.

Can anyone use an AromaStick?

AromaSticks have been designed with adults in mind so they are not recommended for use by children under the age of six. It’s also best to avoid AromaSticks if you have a known sensitivity to any of the oils used. If you’re pregnant or prone to seizures, you should also err on the side of caution and seek advice from your doctor before you use one. Despite all the positive benefits an AromaStick can bring, please do not use one as a substitute for any medication.

We’ve designed the AromaStick to be used throughout the day to get you over life’s little humps or to give you a boost whenever you need it. We hope you enjoy your AromaStick and that it makes everyday a little bit easier.


Are there any side effects?

AromaSticks have been designed so that their oils cannot leak out. But, if they do come into contact with the skin, they can cause an allergic reaction in some people. It’s also possible for essential oils to cause sensitivity to the mucous membrane of the nose in some cases. If you observe any side effects, stop using AromaStick immediately.


Are AromaStick natural inhalers certified organic?

Yes. AromaStick inhalers are certified to Bio-Suisse Standard by Bio.Inspecta, Switzerland. This means that not only are all of the ingredients that we use 100% natural, but they are 100% organic too. You can view our certification by clicking here .


Are AromaStick products vegan and cruelty free?

Yes. We are strongly opposed to animal testing and using animal products in our AromaSticks so all of our products are 100% vegan and cruelty free.
