Bracelet Diffusers for Essential Oils : What are they and how do they work?



I recently posted about my Necklace Diffuser and i was surprised by how many messages i received from those who had never heard of them before and had no idea of how beneficial they are. I didn't realise that Jewellery diffusers were not yet a well known way to diffuse essential oils so i thought it would be useful to also blog about my Bracelet Diffusers, these are another piece of jewellery i use to diffuse my essential oils. In the picture above you will see just one of my Bracelets, i have a number of them with different stones that relate to the Chakras though i will talk about that more in detail in future blogs.

Bracelet Diffusers come in many styles for example:

A stylish 4 set found here

Chakra stone style sets found here 

My personal favourite would be this necklace & bracelet set 

What you will notice is that they all feature Lava Stones, these are the key element as Lava Stones absorb the essential oils and then diffuse them throughout the day. According to Charms of Light  "
Lava Stone, (also known as Basalt, or Lava Rock) is an igneous volcanic rock. It has solidified from molten lava, after conditions of intense heat and pressure" not only are Lava Stone Beads fantastic for diffusing essential oils thety are known to hold their own healing properties too in that they are a calming, strength giving stone.

Top Tips: 
- Use only 2-4 drops on your lava stone diffuser bracelet
- Place the bracelet onto a piece of tissue, add 2-4 drops onto the beads, allow to soak in for 3-4 mins and then pat the bracelet with a tissue to remove any oil residue on the surface of the beads.
- If you have sensitive skin or if using the bracelets with children it can sometimes be useful to use pre-diluted essential oils using a carrier oil such as grapeseed (see my dilutions blog for more information on diluting essential oils)
- Essential Oils on the Lava stones will last 24/48 usually depending on the weather and heat.
- Having different pieces of diffuser jewellery / different bracelets for different essential oil blends is helpful, keep note of which bracelet you use for which blend. 
- Some therapists will advise that you use your bracelets over clothes, this is because depending on the oil grade you are using they can irritate the skin if residue of the oil is left on the beads when you put them on. This is something i would advise you to research further and discuss with your therapist if you are concerned. In my personal experience as i use only 2-3 drops and i pat the bracelet first  to remove any neat oil residue before putting on the bracelet i have never experienced irritation and neither have any of my clients. 

I use Neal's Yard Remedies Organic Essential Oils in my diffuser jewellery and i have been so pleased with the benefits personally but even more so with the feedback from my clients. A number of my Holistic Therapy clients now wear them everyday and they have all returned with positive feedback (men, women & children), many started with just one bracelet & essential oil but have returned to purchase more for different purposes.

If you would like a private consultation to see how Essential Oils & Jewellery diffusers can help you or a loved one please pop into my Botanical Studio or email me kabriggs@hotmail.co.uk where i will be happy to help and advise.

*Please always follow health & safety guidelines when using Essential Oils. Supervise children wearing the bracelets at all times and do not use on children under 4yrs. If you require more health & safety advise please contact me or ask your therapist. All opinions are my own.
