I have used a cotton ball with one drop of essential oil placed near the intake at back of my machine. It only takes a small amount! Some oils are strong and could irritate your nasal membranes. Be careful and read up on it.

Hi WarmheartedTaupeEland7664. Generally, manufacturers recommend that nothing is added to the water in a humidifier chamber. However, there are products available to add aromatherapy to CPAP treatment. Most involve using the external filter. If you do a quick internet search on CPAP aromatherapy, you should be able to find additional information. Best wishes!
