leather and lava beads

Wearable Aromatherapy!

You may know that porous lava stone works fantastically for diffuser jewelry, but did you know that leather can be just as effective?

Why Diffuser Jewelry?

Essential oils are central to any holistic health routine: aromatherapy has been used for hundreds of years to support physical health, strengthen the immune system, and uplift or relax the psyche. Diffuser jewelry allows you to integrate essential oils into wearable pieces — the warmth of your body releases the essential oils, and their healing aromas can last up to a week!

Leather Diffuser How-To

When making diffuser jewelry with leather, go for deerskin or suede: these soft, porous materials will hold on to essential oils better than a smooth leather surface. Add 2-3 drops of the essential oil of your choice to the underside of a strip of leather to turn it into a diffuser, and simply repeat when the scent fades away! Whether you’re making an elegant wrap bracelet or a chunky cuff, try bringing a little homeopathic healing energy into your jewels!
