What Is Aromatherapy Jewellery?

Aromatherapy jewellery is a decorative, wearable item that that has a range of uses for essential oils:

  • Massage for relaxation and health.
  • Inhalation–room diffusers, steam baths and functional jewelry.

You find essential oils and their nature, wellbeing properties in:

  • Cosmetics.
  • Perfume.
  • Cleaning products.
  • Room scenting.
  • Medicines.

Essential oils come from the distillation of natural plant material to concentrate volatile compounds in fragrant oil. The essence of the plant fibres produces the fragrance. Humans experience fragrance in many beneficial ways:

  • Alleviating symptoms like headaches.
  • Promoting restful sleep.
  • Calmness and relief of stress.
  • Positive mindset.

Humans enjoy the fragrance for the benefits and sensory pleasure. This enjoyment results in an industry dedicated to providing you with the smell you love in your home.

Aromatherapy pendant jewellery is not a modern idea–antique examples of wearable scent bottles and boxes are highly collectable. Contemporary aromatherapy jewelry gives you the advantage of a portable, personal fragrance that you carry with you and doesn’t involve scenting an entire room or applying chemicals to your skin. It is an affordable and good way to feel and benefit from your favorite essential oils. One or two drops can last all day in essential pendants.

How Do Diffuser Necklaces Work?

The aromatherapy necklaces provides a space to contain absorbent wools or cotton to hold one or two drops of essential oil. As the essential oil evaporates (assisted by the warmth of your body) it releases fragrance through holes or meshes incorporated in the pendant design.

The quality and style of designs vary–some are reminiscent of Victorian scent boxes and use a hinged locket. Some are cylindrical or use porous materials like terracotta or cork as part of the style.

Concentrated essential oils must not touch your skin because some cause phototoxic reactions, and almost all of them are harmful when undiluted by a carrier oil. The concept for aromatherapy diffuser necklace incorporates a barrier between the padding and your skin, and a way of allowing the odor to emerge.

You apply a few drops of your favourite undiluted essential oil (or a combination) to a wad. These evaporate over overtime while wearing lasting from a short while to days.

How Long Do Diffuser Pads Last?

You can approach the answer from two different angles:

  • How often do you replace them?
  • How long does it last?

How Often Do You Replace the Diffuser Pads?

Theoretically, you can use any natural absorbent items as a padding, but in jewelry most makers use:

  • Felt.
  • Cotton wicks.
  • Wood sticks.
  • Bamboo fabric.
  • Cork.
  • Leather.
  • Lava stone beads.
  • Clay or terracotta.

Cotton, cork, hide and wool beads absorb oil instantly. Porous lava stones and clay take a few minutes before the oil disappears from the surface. Leather tends to add its odour to the blend – very faint, but if you have a sensitive nose, you will spot it. The others are more neutral.

You can reuse the pads for years–the limiting factor is how much essential oil you apply and if you are mixing up the blends. Suppose you want a clean smell, then you are best using a different one for each blend of essential oil.

Wool, cork, cotton and bamboo fabric disks are economical and come in different colours so you can quickly identify which essential oil blend goes with which.

How Long Does the Scent Last?

The staying power of essential oil in jewelry depends on its composition. Like a musical scale, the oil has top, middle and bottom notes. Some have a combination, and some have a single note. A talented perfumier composes a fragrance by combining these notes.

Top notes like eucalyptus and peppermint are light and refreshing but disperse quickly in an hour or two. Lower notes can last up to eight hours on a wool felt pad. The art of blending essential oils to create a bespoke fragrance perfume is surprisingly easy providing you remember that sparing use of the dropper is more effective.

Does Essential Oil Jewellery Work?

The piece of jewelry acts as a container for the essential oil so you can inhale its fragrance. Essential oil jewelry works to deliver you with access to your essential oil blends through inhalation. Millions of tiny receptors in your nose fire up the brain section that deals with memory and emotion. Essential oils speak directly to your mind.

Quality jewelry pieces give you the added advantages of access to your essential oil aromas whenever you need it. You may use lavender for calm, insomnia, anxiety or peppermint as an antidote to morning sickness.

Wearing essential oil pendants allow you to slowly access the fragrance without direct skin contact, in an affordable way throughout your day.

Is Aromatherapy Jewellery Safe?

Undiluted essential oils are concentrated chemical compounds (naturally created by plants) and must be treated with caution and diluted if in contact with skin. The best essential oil jewellery protects the skin from direct contact and is safer in use.

Potential issues with pure essential oils include:


Not everyone copes well with certain scents. Room diffusers can cause irritation in some people suffering an adverse reaction.

Essential oil jewelry means you keep the fragrance to yourself rather than scenting a whole room. This approach is a more economical use of expensive essential oils as one drop suffices for individual use, where you might need the entire bottle for a room.


Selecting the same oil every day lessens its effectiveness and causes sensitization. Your brain learns to block it out with overexposure, and you don’t get the advantages. Plus, one drop is good, and two drops are not better.

Everyone has an instinctive reaction to using more (one more drink, one more chocolate biscuit) of everything, but pragmatically you want to use enough but not too much.

A light fragrance is pleasant for you and everyone else. Using enough essential oil to leave you sneezing and with watery eyes is not what you want from your essential oil pendant. Moderate usage means you get the maximum usefulness for your body, mind and bank balance.


All essential oils do not suit everyone all the time. Some are toxic to cats, dogs, horses, and birds–even in inhalation. The amount of potential harm from a necklace is remote, but your pet may be particularly susceptible, and it is best to avoid contact between your pet and chosen scent.

You can still use an aromatherapy necklace for your sake but ensure safety for your pet.

Children, elderly, pregnant women, people with epilepsy or asthma all have different sensitivity to essential oils and some that need avoiding. Diffuser pendant’s remove some of the main issues because the concentration is small.

Still, it is worth checking that your essential oil is Ok for you to use and avoid any that are known to irritate when inhaled.


Essential oils like any oil are flammable. A drop on a wool felt piece does not pose a fire risk, but a saturated wad dangled in a naked flame does. It’s not a big issue, but it makes sense to be aware that they are flammable in the same way any oil-soaked clothing poses a potential fire hazard.
