It’s no secret that mask wearing has become a daily part of our lives over the past year. Hopefully masks have opened your eyes to how often you are mouth-breathing. As you know, mouth-breathing is a “no go” and can cause all sorts of health issues.
If you still find yourself wearing a mask on a daily basis, Young Living’s Aroma Ring is a great investment. It is a small plastic ring covered in wonderful oils that can be placed on the nose or the ear.
Why is the Aroma Ring beneficial?
As always, it is important to breathe properly through your nose. But it is especially important while wearing a mask, or else you could cause yourself to hyperventilate. Place the Aroma Ring on your nose, close your lips, and breathe through your nose to help calm yourself correctly.
The Aroma Ring attached above uses pure, organic Lavender which is an antihistamine and great inhale.
You can use this at work while sitting at your desk (with or without your mask on). Clasp the ring on your nose and practice your boxed breathing – inhale for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds, exhale for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds.
You can even use it at night while you are getting ready to fall asleep (or while practicing your myofunctional therapy exercises). Take in deep breaths and set your system up for a good nights sleep.
