Combining Aromatherapy and Fashion
With the tremendous growth of aromatherapy as an alternative healing modality, it makes sense for there to be new ways to bring your essential oils with you wherever you go throughout the day. Why have numerous brown glass bottles clanking around in your purse or bag, when you can actually make a fashion statement and wear your essential oils in a piece of aromatherapy jewelry?
Considered a perfect combination of art, style, and scent – aromatherapy jewelry is fast becoming part of the aromatherapy enthusiast’s wardrobe. Listed 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” out there for you!
The Lovely Amphora Aromatherapy Necklace
This miniature ceramic replica of an amphora is inspired by ancient Greek and Roman earthenware storage vessels. It is porous clay on the inside and glazed on the outside with no lid. It is usually hung around the neck on a cord or ribbon. This petite amphora aromatherapy necklace gets “seasoned” with your personal blend of essential oils on the inside and on the handles. The clay absorbs your favorite essences and the aromas diffuse from the bottle throughout the day by body heat and evaporation. Once the amphora is seasoned, it takes fewer drops of essential oils to “reactivate” its scent. It is recommended to use thin (viscosity), clear essential oils with this type of jewelry as the clay is usually white and 塔羅 may discolor with darker, thicker oils. Using pure essential oils in your amphora can soothe your emotions, inspire creativity, boost concentration, help clear your sinuses, and more. Try rosewood, citrus, lavender, eucalyptus, petitgrain, or mint essential oils in your amphora for a natural, aromatic lift every time to wear your aromatherapy necklace!
The Dramatic Aromatherapy Magic Potion Bottle
The aromatherapy pendant, or potion bottle, is usually made out of stone or glass. These glass bottles can hold a substantial amount of your favorite essential oils or blend of oils and be quite beautiful. Many of these types of colorful, aromatherapy necklaces are adorned with beautiful beads, charms, and silver or copper wire work. To enjoy your personally selected essences from nature, you simply “pop the cork” and either smell / inhale the essential oils or apply your oils to your skin as desired. Aromatherapy pendants can be collected and are usually one-of-a-kind artistic pieces. These make lovely gifts and can certainly be used for ceremonial purposes and special occasions.
The Beautiful Aromatherapy Locket
The aromatherapy locket uses a special “wick system” to diffuse your essential oils. Simply open the locket and apply a drop or two of your chosen essential oils to the pad, close the locket, and enjoy. Aromatherapy lockets are usually crafted out of silver, gold, bronze, or nickel. Lovely motifs like fairies, Celtic knots, and suns are popular decorations. The lockets can be worn as necklaces, bracelets, or key chains, and are perfect for people who want to enjoy the essences but don’t want the oils touching the skin. The aromatherapy lockets diffuse your oils through openings in the metal. There is no need to open the locket to enjoy the healing aromas. Some essentials oils evaporate rather quickly, like citrus and lavender. Other essential oils like sandalwood and ylang ylang can last a very long time before the wick needs to be freshened.
All three types of aromatic jewelry are strong and safe. The exciting new styles and gorgeous colors are sure to inspire healing professionals and aromatherapy enthusiasts everywhere to start “wearing” their favorite essences anywhere they go.
