QUIT SMOKING & VAPING
Satisfy Your Hand
To Mouth Cravings
A tobacco-free non-electronic inhaler to quit smoking and vaping.
Springtime is rough for your respiratory system. Whether you have seasonal allergies or not, your body is coming into contact with airborne particles from the new growth of plants. These airborne particles are little irritants that your body is dealing with. For some people, these irritants result in a full array of seasonal allergy symptoms like coughing, sneezing, sore throat, etc. But for the majority of people, there are not any obvious symptoms of the mini-battle your body is fighting on the inside.
Supporting your respiratory system will boost your overall wellness in the spring, as your body deals with new seasonal irritants.
The respiratory system allows us to breath. It brings oxygen into our body (called inhalation) and sends carbon dioxide out (called exhalation). The exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the respiratory system is called respiration.
Your respiratory system is made of two regions, the upper and lower respiratory tracts. The upper respiratory tract includes your nasal cavity (nose), larynx and pharynx (back of mouth/upper throat). The lower respiratory tract includes your trachea(tube between throat and lungs), bronchi (branches of connection tubes between the trachea and lung), and lungs. Both regions are vital in the process of exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide in respirations.
So, breathing is pretty important, right?! Without the proper exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide, serious troubles start happening. Keeping our respiratory system healthy and strong is vital for overall wellness, as every other system in our bodies relies on oxygen to function. And in spring, our body is carrying the extra weight of dealing with irritants while trying to gather oxygen with each breath.
What are these “irritants”?
Spring is a time of sprouting leaves, new growth and therefore, lots of pollen. The main contributors to the pollen in the air are trees, grass, and weeds. While pollen is totally necessary for our ecosystems, it does act as a surface irritant when we breathe it in with the air in the great outdoors.
I don’t have allergies, why should I care?
Regardless of whether you have seasonal allergies or not, your body is still fighting these irritants. Seasonal allergy symptoms are a heightened immune response to irritants, like pollen, that result in sneezing, coughing, itchy eyes, etc. If you do not have these symptoms, it means that your immune system isn’t heightened, but it is still active. For this reason, respiratory system support is helpful to everyone’s overall health in the spring.
Poor functioning respiratory systems lead to decreased or insufficient oxygenation throughout the body. This can result in decreased strength, stamina, energy, and cognitive function. While a strong respiratory system equips you to have optimal physical performance, higher energy, and better cognitive function. Regardless of whether you have seasonal allergies or not, keeping your respiratory system strong and healthy should be a priority.
Integrate Breathing Techniques
Breathing seems like something very basic, however, the skill to utilize proper breathing techniques is not something many people have cultivated. One breathing technique that is often utilized as a way to enhance oxygenation and increase lung capacity is diaphragmatic breathing.
To do diaphragmatic breathing: lay on your back and breathe in through your nose with your mouth shut, pulling the air down, allowing your lungs to completely fill with air as your belly moves outwards. Slowly exhale through pursed lips, while tightening your abdominal muscles. Keep your chest still throughout. Repeat 3 times, breathing normally for a few seconds between. Do this technique daily.
Cultivate Proper Posture
Your lung’s ability to bring in a full breath is highly dependent on the quality of your posture. Your breathing will naturally be more shallow when you are slouching and slumping. Sitting and standing upright will increase your lung capacity and improve the quality of your breaths.
Stay Active and Hydrated
Like all muscles, your lungs need to be challenged to grow. Lung capacity is naturally increased as your body demands more systemic oxygenation. To put your body in a state of using up more oxygen, you need to exercise.
Your respiratory system is primed with mucus throughout it. Although that sounds gross, it is a vital part of your body preventing inflammation and illness. To create enough mucus, your body needs to be properly hydrated. So like everyone says, you need to drink enough water! This keeps your respiratory system primed and ready to defend against irritants.
Reinforcing Your Immunity
Helping your immune system as a whole will greatly support your body’s ability to fight against irritants, including within the respiratory system. Using super plants through aromatherapy is an easy way to do this. As the benefits of many plants can reinforce your body’s overall wellness. For example, super plants like clove, lemon, eucalyptus, and peppermint are known to enhance immunity, supporting your whole body’s health.
Respiratory health is of high importance for everyone, regardless of whether they have allergies or not. Taking action to naturally support and build respiratory strength can be easily done in everyday life, and isn’t very complicated.
We created Lemon Berry Bliss Cores specifically to reinforce your body’s ability to fight against pollen irritants, effectively supporting your body’s natural respiratory function. Use the power of these super plants to enhance your wellness

Best device to quit
One nicotine quitting pack and it got me through wanting to smoke or vape ANYTHING. I don’t know what voodoo you got in those cores, but I’m cured with the need/desire to smoke anything. can’t think of another product that actually delivered on their promise, thank you FUM!!!
I love everything about it...
I love everything about this product. Purchased it to stop smoking and it helped immensely. Since then have bought more cores and they are great. I recommend it to all my friends. Thank you!!!
I had been decreasing my nicotine use through vaping and had gotten to using 0mg juices. When switched to using only FUM, I was very happy with the ease and FREEDOM of the product. I see it now as a simple essential oil delivery system for personal on-the-go aromatherapy.
My husband has been using Fum
My husband has been using Füm inhaler to help quit his dipping habit. Seems to be helping with the cravings! It’s a journey but we are happy to have a natural way to help kick the habit!
Such a great tool to have!
This core has been so key for me in my 30 day challenge of making healthier eating choices. I cut back on dairy, processed sugar, grains, legumes, and coffee. I’m on day 22 and I’m not even craving any of these. It’s helped me to press pause, take some breaths, and reset my mind to stay strong. Definitely recommend!
Amazing for kicking habits
I’m a mental health and addiction counselor and am constantly trying to help clients quit smoking. Typically I suggest black pepper on a toothpick but ever since finding füm this is what I recommend! Their conquer cores are so wonderful for the recovery community!!!!
Pure, organic, ethically sourced, natural flavours.
I Love the feeling it gives me.
Completed 30 Day Smoke/Vape Free Challenge!
