How to Use Essential Oils
Another great thing about essential oils is that there are a ton of different ways to use and distribute them to maximize the benefits. Here are some of the most popular ways to use essential oils.
Essential Oil Diffuser
Essential oil diffusers are neat devices that disperse essential oils into the surrounding air. This can help transform a space into a calming environment while also getting rid of offensive odors. Depending on the oil you choose they can even help kill airborne bacteria. There are tons of different kinds of diffusers that all work differently (including a diffuser bracelet, which we’ll get to in a minute).
Inhale from the Bottle or Tissue
This is probably the easiest way to get your fix of essential oils. All you have to do is open the cap and take a few sniffs of the concentrated oil. Be careful, though— you don’t want to open your bottle too often, it can deteriorate the oil faster from oxidation. As an alternative you can place a drop on a tissue and inhale the scented tissue throughout the day.
Topically to Skin
You can also apply essential oils topically, but you need to do this properly to avoid getting a rash or other side effect. In order to use this method simply dilute your essential oil with a carrier oil and mix together before applying. This is a great choice if you’re looking for pain relief in arthritic joints or sore muscles.
In the Shower or Bath
You can also use essential oils in the shower or the bath in a few ways. You can try adding a few drops to your toiletries and mixing them together, or you can apply some to the shower walls to be activated during your shower by the steam. If you want to use them in a bath, dilute with some carrier oils and mix together before adding a few drops to your bathwater.
How Does A Diffuser Bracelet Work?
Diffuser bracelets are very cool new ways to get your aromatherapy or essential oil fix on the go, no matter where you are! There are two different kind of base materials that you may find in a diffuser bracelet: lava rock beads or leather inserts. Here’s the difference between the two.
Lava Rock Beads
Lava rock is very porous (meaning it’s full of a lot of holes) and it absorbs oils quickly and easily. These beads are strong on a bracelet that you can apply your own essential oils to, and the scent and effects seem to be long-lasting and the oil doesn’t transfer to clothes or other items.
Leather Insert Bracelets
You may see these with a locket type fixture or a leather pad on it, but these are variations on the same theme. Often these bracelets have aesthetic jewelry centerpieces that hold small pads of leather that you put your essential oils on.
Both of these methods are great options, but the leather bracelets tend to look a little more professional than the lava rock bead bracelets.
3 Helpful Benefits of Diffuser Bracelets with Essential Oils
There are so many reasons why you may want to consider using a diffuser bracelet. Here are some of the best reasons.
1. Portable Aromatherapy
Essential oils are great for treating tons of things, and with a bracelet you can get the benefits on the go. You can use these for headaches, stomach issues, bug repellent, memory, depression and anxiety, and even sleep.
2. They Are Discrete
You can control how much oil you put on your bracelet, so the level of the scent is completely up to you. If you don’t want other people to know or wonder why your bracelet smells strongly of eucalyptus (or whatever you choose) then you can use a smaller amount of oil and simply bring it close to your nose when you’d like to experience the benefits.
3. You Can Add Healing Crystals
Many of these bracelets have crystals on them that serve additional healing purposes. You can easily find a bracelet with the crystal of your choice, and these are also aesthetically pleasing.
