Essential oil diffuser necklace

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

After reading about how to make a diffuser necklace and seeing one of my favorite bloggers write an article about them a while back I thought I would give it a try!

Diffuser charms are very interesting but simple to make.

When you wear the Terracotta against your skin and your body heats up the clay, it diffuses the scent of the essential oil into the air.
Terracotta sculpting clay is extremely inexpensive and easy to work with.

The first thing you have to do when working with the terracotta clay is to warm it up by squeezing it in your hands like a stress ball. Then when the clay is easily mold-able you will lay it out on an old cookie sheet.

Use cookie cutters or an X-acto knife to cut the shape you plan to work with.Then use a small straw or instrument to make the hole at the top, where you will later place the string.

Here is the fun part, the design! You can use rubber stamps, the x-acto knife, a regular pencil with
sharpened point or just use your fingers to create the perfect charm for you!

You can press tiny shells or crystals into your charm as well!

Pre-heat your oven to 275 degrees. Then place the cookie sheet you used to make the charms into the oven for 3 minutes. *Please keep a close eye on your charms to ensure they do not burn*

From my experience you may want to use bake a test charm. Make sure the thickness of the charms you are not testing are the same size as the test charm and you should be good!

Once your charms are out of the oven give them a few minutes to cool, pop them off of the tray, and add your hemp cord or string to turn it into a necklace!

Drop one drop of your favorite essential oil onto the grooves of the charm. Allow the oils to soak into the clay for a few minutes.

Then all you have to do is wear it and bask in your cleverness and aromatherapy all day!
