Diffusing is one of my favorite ways to use essential oils. And, when I'm away from home I can take the goodness with me when I'm wearing a diffuser necklace. Today we're going to talk about how to make a diffuser necklace - so you can enjoy the benefits of your essential oils wherever you go.

Putting a few drops of oil on a clay pendant that you wear on your wrist or around your neck is a great way to benefit from the properties of essential oils. Try Present Moments (a lovely blend from Rocky Mountain Oils) - you won't be disappointed. And making your own essential oil diffuser necklace is very easy to do.
You only need a few things to make a diffuser necklace (note: I did not use the exact items listed, I used what I had on-hand but tried to find similar items for your convenience):
- Terra-cotta or white clay (air-dry clay works best)
- Waxed paper
- Small round cookie cutter (about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter)
- Decorative Stamps
- Drinking Straw
- Leather cording
- Essential Oils
The first thing to do is to work a small portion of clay until it is pliable before pressing it out to a flat, even thickness (about 1/4 inch thick) between two layers of waxed paper.
Using the cookie cutter, cut out the pendant shape. Create a unique design on the pendant by pressing a decorative stamp into the clay. Smooth out the rough edges with your finger tips (sometimes a bit of water helps too).
Use a straw to create a hole large enough for a length of leather cord to fit through. Follow the instructions on the clay for drying before stringing your pendant on the leather cord.
That's it! Learning how to make an essential oil diffuser necklace is really very simple!
Using your diffuser necklace
To use your pendant as a personal diffuser, pour 1-2 drops of essential oil onto the clay pendant (on the side that won't be touching your clothing) then let it sit and absorb the oil before you hang it around your neck. You'll be enjoying the scent all day long! Best of all, these are so inexpensive to make, you could make a few and use each one for a different oil or blend.
Or, if you prefer bracelets, you could make clay beads and make a diffuser bracelet instead.
