Po-Ho Inhalation Oil – Peppermint, eucalyptus and other essential oils
Essential oils have become extremely popular and are used in many different ways. The key feature of essential oils is that they evaporate at room temperature – this is the reason they smell so pleasant. Apart from imparting a pleasant, relaxing aroma, essential oils can also help the body in other ways, forming the basis for aromatherapy as a healthcare discipline. In addition, the essential oils of Peppermint and Eucalyptus have been used traditionally to help maintain clear, cool breathing.
Alfred Vogel first wrote about Po-Ho essential oil in March 1929 in his first magazine, Das Neue Leben (A Fresh Start). The name comes from Po-Ho, the (Mandarin) Chinese for peppermint, one of the five essential oils in this refreshing classic.
- Mixture of purely natural, high quality, essential oils
- For inhalation
- Can also be rubbed onto the skin
Po-Ho oil for inhalation is a mixture of: Peppermint essential oil (50%), Eucalyptus essential oil (30%), Juniper essential oil (14%), Caraway essential oil (4%), Fennel essential oil (2%)
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 one drop 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. 1 drop of Po-Ho should be mixed with 15 drops of base oil before rubbing onto your chest.
Do not use as eye drops, nose drops or as a nasal spray.
Avoid contact with the eyes, 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.
Best stored in a cool place.
