Essential oils are becoming more and more popular these days. These are natural oils extracted from plants and used in various ways. From relaxation and rest to improvement of health and making a home smell great, the essential oils indeed come with so many benefits.
Although there are various ways to use the essential oils, one of the most common ways that the oils are used is by diffusing them to the air using a diffuser. Diffusers can work well when it comes to spreading the oil to the air, but the problem is that you cannot take full advantage of the benefits of using the essential oils. Others choose to apply the oil directly to their skin, however, once the oil is absorbed by the skin, the smell will wear off, which defeats the purpose.
Thankfully, there’s a great way to come up with a portable essential oil diffuser and that’s with the use of the lava beads. You can make them into a necklace or a bracelet, whatever is more suitable for you.
Steps to Making a Diffuser Bracelet
Before you start with making your diffuser bracelet or necklace, you must first prepare the needed materials. For this project, you will need an elastic beading cord, essential oil, and of course, your lava beads. You can also choose to use other porous beads such as those that are made from unfinished wood and clay. You can also accent your necklace or bracelet with other types of beads.
Here are a few steps on how to make a bracelet or necklace diffuser using lava beads:
- String the beads in an elastic beading cord. Make sure you include enough beads that can diffuse your oil. You can also include non-porous lava beads if you want to. Make sure you use the cord with an appropriate length. When you’re done stringing the beds, tie the cord.
- Add some drops of essential oils to your lava beads. You can have one essential oil or a blend of essential oils. Don’t be afraid to experiment by adding several different kinds of oils to your beads. Wear the bracelet and enjoy the wonderful aroma of the oil all throughout the day regardless of where you will go.
Things to Keep in Mind
Remember that there are certain types of essential oils that could stain your clothing. Right after you apply the oils into the beads, wait for a few minutes until the bracelet absorbs the oil before you wear it. That way, when the jewelry gets into contact with your clothes, it will not cause a stain.If you want to create bracelets and necklaces with more intricate designs, you can always look for other cording options with special designs.
A diffuser bracelet made from lava beads is definitely a great option for a gift, especially if you include a small bottle of essential oil with it.
