Where Beauty Meets Benefit
We're loving the latest trend in jewellery - The Aromatherapy Bracelet. These little beauties are hand made, using gem stones and lava rock beads to help you 'wear' your choice of essential oils throughout the day.
Lara Apolo from All About Eve Shop makes these gorgeous creations especially for you.
How does it work?
Simply lay your jewellery on a cloth or tissue and place a few drops of essential oil or liquid perfume directly onto the lava beads. Allow the oil to absorb completely before putting on your jewellery to make sure the oil doesn't stain your clothing. If you want to switch oils, just wait until the scent has faded then add your new oil.
Lava Beads are literally made from molten magma spewed out of volcanoes and are naturally porous so act as a wonderful carrier for aromatherapy oils. You put essential oils on the black lava rock (vesuvinite). It's believed that emotional and spiritual lava healing properties con be obtained by each person that wears a real lava stone bead bracelet, because of their strong association with the Earth. Due to this earthly connection, volcanic rock beads are seen as symbols of fertility, endurance and strength. Lava is known to ground the root chakra and boost the qualities of other stones as well.
Essential oils are known to have healing properties and can be used in a variety of ways, including mixing a few drops with a carrier oil to make a massage oil or in a body lotion; by adding them to a bath; or simply by breathing in the aroma from a diffuser. Need a bit of zen? add a few drops of Lavender, feeling a little under the weather? Orange oil will get you zinging in no time, need to be clear-headed? a few drops of Rosemary will do the trick.
There are numerous books and websites containing information on how to use essential oils and which oils are best recommended for each purpose. We love using essential oils as an energy boost in the late afternoon and as a soothing way to fall asleep at night but strongly advise consulting and aromatherapist or naturopath if you want to use them for specific medical ailments.
