aromatherapy oils in cpap machine
I'm a new user.  I understand that the filter in the air intake would negate the smell of any aromas.  I use the nasal mask and breath strips...been using Breath Strips for years. I put a couple drops of oil on a very small piece of cotton and put it in the middle of the breath strip, then cover with another small piece of cotton so the oil is not touching my skin (Q-tip cotton is fine), and apply the strip to nice.    It's great!!!   Lasts all night.   I did order some Lavender Breath Strips  (I think this is a new item) and it was okay, but the aroma didn't seem to last for long.

The filters on most machines are a mesh of non-woven Polyester fiber. They are just to remove dust and other particulates but shouldn't remove any vapors.
