One of our Facebook friends asked us for some recommendations for diffuser blends to use on aromatherapy jewelry. We took the challenge and did some research and experimenting, and now we present to you the following list.
Aromatherapy jewelry is a fairly broad category and consists of any type of jewelry that is porous enough to absorb essential oil such as clay, lava rocks, wicks, felt pads, etc. The oils slowly diffuse by the air current caused by your body movement or existing in the environment. The oils can last anywhere from a few hours to several days (depending on the amount of oil used and the thickness of the oils). Here are a few examples of aromatherapy jewelry that you can purchase from AromaTools:
The amount of oil drops used on aromatherapy jewelry can range from 1–10 drops depending on the type of jewelry. Clay pendants only need 1–2 drops; wicks can use up to 10 drops. Because of this variance, we decided to keep our blend or oil suggestions to 1–4 drops total. If you really like a recipe, try mixing up a slightly larger batch (20 drops total) in a small sample bottle and then applying 1–2 drops of the blend to your jewelry.
One important thing to remember when adding oils to aromatherapy jewelry is to avoid using essential oils that can irritate the skin, because the jewelry is often worn in direct contact with the skin. If you have sensitive skin and know a certain oil causes irritation, then avoid using that oil with your aromatherapy jewelry.
