classic amongst oils.

Po-Ho essential oil for inhalation
The most popular use of Po-Ho is to inhale the essential oils. This can be done in a number of ways:
- Put a few drops of Po-Ho oil onto a handkerchief or bunched-up tissue, hold it to your nose and inhale. You can also put the essential oil soaked handkerchief into your pillowcase or next to your pillow to help you sleep better
- If you need to inhale an extra boost of essential oils, put a few drops of Po-Ho into a steaming-hot bowl of water, lean over, cover your head and bowl with a small towel, and inhale. Do this carefully as the oils can initially feel quite strong to your eyes when you inhale.
- Po-Ho essential oil can also be rubbed onto the front of your upper chest – your body heat will release a constant supply of essential oils for you to inhale
- The easy-to-carry essential oil inhaler stick is a convenient way of using Po-Ho. To use, insert the tip of the inhaler gently into your nostril, close the other nostril and inhale deeply. Repeat with the other nostril. Not suitable for children under 6 years of age
Po-Ho to help soothe muscle aches
This combination of essential oils may also be used to relieve muscle aches:
- Gently massage the affected area with a few drops of Po-Ho oil
- Take extra care if you are using Po-Ho on parts of your face just under the eyes as the high quality essential oils can make your eyes sting and water
- You may use Po-Ho on your temples or sides of your head or scalp, but do not use on the skin immediately surrounding your eyes
Take care when using Po-Ho
The few things you should take care of when using Po-Ho are:
- Do not use as eye drops, nose drops or as a nasal spray.
- Avoid contact with the eyes and sensitive skin or other sensitive areas of the body.
- Wash your hands thoroughly after touching the oil.
- Do not use Po-Ho if you are allergic to any of the essential oils or other ingredients of the inhaler stick.
- Best stored in a cool place.
