With the tremendous growth of aromatherapy as an alternative healing modality, it makes sense that there are new ways to take your essential oils wherever you go during the day. Why have numerous brown glass bottles making noise in your bag or purse, when you can actually make a fashion statement and use your essential oils in an aromatherapy piece of jewelry? Considered a perfect combination of art, style and aroma: aromatherapy jewelry is fast becoming part of the wardrobe of aromatherapy enthusiasts. Below are descriptions of three popular types of aromatic jewelry for all styles, tastes and budgets. For the modest, practical, magical or sophisticated personality, there is a special piece of “aroma wear” for you!
The Lovely Amphora Aromatherapy Necklace
This miniature ceramic replica of an amphora is inspired by ancient clay pots of Greek and Roman clay. It is porous clay inside and enameled on the outside without a lid. Usually, it hangs around the neck with a cord or ribbon. This small-amphetamine aromatherapy collar is “seasoned” with its personal blend of essential oils on the inside and on the handles. The clay absorbs your favorite essences and the diffuse aromas of the bottle throughout the day by body heat and evaporation. Once the amphora is seasoned, fewer drops of essential oils are needed to “reactivate” its aroma. It is recommended the use of thin essential oils (viscosity) and transparent with this type of jewelry since the clay is usually white and can be discolored with darker and thicker oils. Using pure essential oils in your amphora can soothe your emotions, inspire creativity, increase concentration, help clear breasts and more. Try the essential oils of rosewood, citrus, lavender, eucalyptus, petit grain or mint in your amphora for an aromatic and natural boost every time you use your aromatherapy necklace!
The Dramatic Aromatherapy Magic Potion Bottle
The aromatherapy pendant, or potion bottle, is usually made of stone or glass. These glass bottles can contain a substantial amount of your favorite essential oils or a mixture of oils and be quite beautiful. Many of these types of colorful aromatherapy necklaces are adorned with beautiful beads, amulets and works of silver or copper wire. To enjoy your personally selected essences of nature, simply “open the cork” and smell / inhale the essential oils or apply the oils to the skin as desired. Aromatherapy pendants can be collected and are usually unique pieces of their kind. These lovely gifts and can certainly be used for ceremonial purposes and special occasions.
The Beautiful Aromatherapy Medallion
The aromatherapy locket uses a special “wick system” to spread its essential oils. Simply open the medallion and apply one or two drops of the chosen essential oils to the pad, close the medallion and enjoy. The aromatherapy medallions are usually made of silver, gold, bronze or nickel. Beautiful motifs such as fairies, Celtic knots and suns are popular decorations. The medallions can be used as necklaces, bracelets or key rings, and are perfect for people who want to enjoy the essences but do not want oils to touch the skin. The aromatherapy medallions diffuse their oils through the openings in the metal. There is no need to open the medallion to enjoy the healing aromas. Some essential oils evaporate quite quickly, like citrus and lavender. Other essential oils such as sandalwood and ylang ylang can last a long time before the wick needs to be refreshed.
The three types of aromatic jewelry are strong and safe. The exciting new styles and colors will surely inspire healing professionals and aromatherapy enthusiasts around the world to start “using” their favorite scents wherever they go.
