Essential oils are like flowers, they bring life and beauty…not necessarily to the eyes but to the olfactory bulb. 😉 The happy, energetic smell of lemon or a calming whiff of lavender is sometimes all this mom needs to get a little pick-me-up.
We have diffusers in our house, but when I saw this cool idea of wearing my oils on a necklace (that I could take anywhere with me), I had to find a way to make one for myself…plus a few extra. 🙂
Here are a few ways I am planning to use my essential oil diffuser necklace and some oil options to go with them
- Relieve runny noses and allergies: Peppermint, Lemon, or Lavendar
- Calm anxiety: Balance Blend, Lavender, Geranium, or Ylang Ylang.
- Energize: Lemon, Wild Orange, Grapefruit, or Lemongrass.
- Combat bacteria and inflammation: On Guard Blend, Frankincense, Melaleuca,
- Soothe cramps: Clary Sage.
- For the kids: Roman Chamomile or Lavender.
DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace
- A pack of Oven-bake clay (I used Sculpey)
- Jewelry Cord (I used Hemp)
- Beads or charms with large holes.
- Clasps (optional)
- Large paper clip
- A small circle cookie cutter (or a small lid)
- A small stamp (to imprint a design on the clay)
- Pure Theraputic Grade essential oils
- Use your cookie cutter (or lid) to form the diffuser out of the clay.
- Using your stamp, press a design into the clay.
- Take your large paper clip and create a hole for the string to go into. (Depending on the size of your cord, you may need to create a larger hole.)
- Bake your clay according to the package instructions.
- Once your clay diffuser is cooled off, add beads, charms, along with the diffuser to the jewerly cord.
- Finish off by adding a clasp, or just tie it off. (I used a clasp for the first one I made, but the other two I just tied off, and they look just as good.)
