Have you seen aromatherapy jewelry? Felt discs in pretty lockets, clay pendants, lava bead bracelets and necklaces are in right now. They are a popular way to use the benefits of essential oils in a way that is similar to using a personal inhaler. Aromatherapy utilizes scent to deliver the therapeutic properties of aromatic essential oils instantly. Inhalation is one of the most effective ways to use essential oils to manage stress, increase focus, relieve anxiety, aid sleep, boost mood and influence emotions. Many times using a whole room diffuser is not a practical or convenient method and aromatherapy jewelry can offer a targeted form of administration that is easy to access. I have come up with a neat way to use local sheep’s wool to make an interesting and practical diffuser pendant. My friend Heather taught me to make colorful felted wool balls from wool that she produced and bartered for as well. I place them in spiral wire cages and use hand sewn silk cording to hang them from. They can be worn as a necklace or used as an indirect diffuser in the car or at work where a whole room diffuser might not be welcome. My Stay Focused blend of essential oils helps to keep me alert on my long commutes though any blend or single essential oil could be used as needed. If you have questions about how to use essential oils in diffuser jewelry or any aromatherapy questions in general, shoot me an email. Happy Spring!
