Diffuser Jewelry & Blends

Sometimes we want to take our fancy diffuser blends with us on the go, whether we are traveling, or just headed to the grocery store. (Am I right?!) So I wanted to share a fun DIY recipe with you today to make your own diffuser jewelry, and of course, some awesome blends to wear!

This Aromatherapy Jewelry is made out of natural terra-cotta clay that absorbs essential oils. While this tutorial is for a necklace, try making any type of jewelry: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, pendants, beads, etc. Once the clay is sculpted and dried, add a few drops of an essential oil or blend to the jewelry to experience the power of essential oils throughout the day. This DIY can also be use to make car air fresheners, Christmas ornaments, key chains, and more.

Items Needed

  • Terra-cotta clay
  • Sand paper
  • Stamps (small—no more than 1 inch in diameter)
  • Shish kabob stick or toothpick
  • String
  • 1–1 ¼ inch round cut-out object
  • Rolling pin (or pen/pencil will work)
  • Scissors
  • Aluminum foil
  • Wax paper

Tip: Store your scented jewelry when it is not being worn in your linen closet or dresser drawers to keep fabrics smelling great.

Instructions

  1. Grab a handful of terra-cotta clay and rub in palms of hands until it’s soft and pliable.
  2. Place a piece of wax paper on the table.
  3. Use the rolling pin to roll out the clay until it is ⅛ inch thick.
  4. Take the round object and press firmly into the clay to make circle pendants.
  5. Remove the excess clay from the cut out pendants. Take each pendant and stamp a design into clay.
  6. Take a shish kabob stick or toothpick and make a hole in the pendant. Make sure the hole is big enough to fit two strands of string into.
  7. With the left over clay, make a few small round beads and put a medium to large size hole in the center of it.
  8. Once all the pendants have holes, place them on a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil and bake or air dry according to the specifications provided with your clay.
  9. If baking in the oven, be careful to not overbake. They may seem bendable as soon as they are taken out of the oven, but they will harden once cooled completely.
  10. Once cool, use sandpaper to lightly smooth away any rough edges. It will temporarily change the color of the clay, but will return to normal once essential oils are applied.
  11. Take a string and cut it to desired length. Add 4–5 extra inches just to be safe.The string can be cut shorter later on.
  12. Take the pendant and put both ends of the string through the hole. Pull the ends through and put them through the loop. Pull tight. This will help the pendant lay flat on your chest.
  13. For a longer necklace, tie the two strings together.
    Tip: For a shorter necklace, tie one end of the necklace in a knot a couple inches down. Place a bead on next and then tie a knot on top of the bead so it remains securely in place. On the other end of necklace, tie a loop that is large enough for the bead to fit through. Cut off any extra string. To take your necklace on and off, simply put the bead in the hole that will act as a clasp.
  14. Add 1 drop essential oil or blend to the pendant. Rub the oil around.

Enjoy the benefits of essential oils throughout the day. If the scent begins to fade, add another drop to the pendant. Remember, a little essential oil goes a long way.

Today I wanted to share a blend that is very near and dear to me, Citrus Bliss! This beautiful blend of citrus and a hint of vanilla can brighten up even your gloomiest of days! Pop in into your diffuser and give it a whirl! Citrus Bliss was one of the first oils I experienced from doTERRA. I had such an incredible experience with it, the moment the aroma first touched my nose! Several years later, it is still one of my absolute faves, and my son LOVES it too.

One of my favorite ways to utilize this oil is applying it to my wrists, neck and feet, when I really want to bring out an extra spark of my creativity! If I feel like I'm lacking drive, or need some creative motivation, this blend really inspires me emotionally! "Every human soul has a need to create. These oils inspire creative expression by reconnecting individuals with their inner child and their natural creative sense." -Emotions & Essential Oils

Cassia

If you are a fan of Cinnamon, you will be a fan of Cassia! These essential oils are similar, but certainly have their differences! Some oil manufacturers actually label their Cassia as Cinnamon to cut costs! No bueno! Extracted from the bark of a Cinnamomum cassia plant, Cassia is a warm and spicy essential oil with a myriad of benefits that can help the mind and the body. For centuries, this sister to the cinnamon spice has been used internally to maintain physical health and aromatically to support emotional well-being. One of Cassia oil’s most prominent health benefits is its ability to promote healthy digestion when used internally. Today I am sharing the benefits of Cassia, as well as a few recipes you are sure to love!

Cassia is also a popular ingredient when making many different entrees, breads, and desserts. This spice is flavorful and can be used to replace cinnamon in a variety of food items. Along with its digestion benefits, Cassia oil can be taken internally to support healthy immune function and to maintain cardiovascular health. Cassia oil is also a powerful agent when used aromatically. In small doses, its strong and spicy aroma can be used to create an uplifting atmosphere that will promote emotional health. The fragrance emitted from Cassia is recognized anciently in the Old Testament for its powerful scent and calming properties. Due to its caustic nature, Cassia oil should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil when applied to the skin and can be very strong when inhaled directly.

On an emotional level, "Cassia brings gladness and courage to the heart and soul. It helps those who hold back and try to hide. When a person avoids being the center of attention, Cassia can restore their confidence." - Emotions & Essential Oils

One of the main chemical components of cassia bark and Cassia oil is cinnamaldehyde. This natural chemical is responsible for producing Cassia oil’s warm and spicy aroma. A recent study incorporated in the doTERRA Science Blog suggests that cinnamaldehyde also acts to support healthy molecular function in the kidneys when taken internally. Internal use of cinnamaldehyde is also known to have potential colon benefits.

Spring & Summer Diffuser Blends

I love to create different kinds of diffuser blends to help our home smell beautiful and keep my family in good spirits. Diffusing oils can do so much for your living space, and for the people in it! Essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air.

The sense of smell is a tool that can elicit powerful physiologic, mental, and emotional responses. Essential oils are quickly absorbed by the smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system by way of the olfactory nerve. The limbic system is part of the brain that supports a variety of functions including smell, emotions, behavior, and memory. For this reason, essential oils have an especially powerful effect via aromatic application.

Some essential oils induce uplifting or invigorating effects, while others are more calming. Diffusion is one of the simplest methods for using essential oils aromatically. Diffusers that use cold air or water are ideal. However, using essential oils aromatically does not require any special diffusing devices.
