As essential oils become more prevalent, it should come as no surprise that users of essential oils like to have them within reach most of the time. After all, with the way that they help deal with certain ailments – stress included – having them within reach should be a must.
To make the process of having those essential oils with you at all times easier, there are essential oil diffuser bracelets available. What are these, exactly? They allow you to put a few drops of your favorite essential oil onto the bracelet so that you can experience the aroma and healing benefits of your favorite essential oil even when on the go.
If you don’t have experience with essential oils, there are probably a few different questions going through your head right now. But never fear, we will walk you through just what they are and how to make the best use of a diffuser bracelet so that you can enjoy the benefits of your favorite essential oils anywhere you go.
What are the benefits of essential oils?
This question can’t be answered in full in this space because of the sheer amount of time it would take to talk about all of the benefits that come with using essential oils. If you are looking to improve your overall wellness, using essential oils is the only way to go.
The simple idea is that essential oils come from plants and that these plants have been around for thousands of years. These oils can help with a litany of different things: easing stomach aches, dealing with stress, helping with the transition into sleep, and even acting as a mosquito repellant in the summer months.
Need a little bit more of a specification? Let’s start with lavender. Known for being one of the more calming essential oils, lavender can help you drift off to sleep while also helping to sooth things like skin irritations. Or you might try peppermint oil, which is a great aid for indigestion and can also help alleviate stress headaches.
Citrus oils are some of the more common essential oils out there. This includes things like lime, lemon, grapefruit, and orange and they not only act as air fresheners for any room in your home, but they can help to boost your mood or even act as a natural cleaning alternative.
Frankincense, which has historical significance, can be highly beneficial for your skin and can also help to give you extra immune support during the colder winter months when illness can run rampant. And these are just a few of the many different essential oils out there that have wonderful benefits to your mental and physical health.
There are certainly a number of different ways that you can apply and use the oils that you tend to like more than the others. You can diffuse them at home in a diffuser, sniff them straight from the bottle, use a carrier oil (like grapeseed oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil) to dilute them in roller bottles, or use them to clean your home.
But as mentioned at the beginning of this piece, you can also wear them on your wrist with the diffuser bracelet, bypassing the need to dilute them at all. Knowing how those diffuser bracelets work can be the push you need to begin trying them today.
How do the bracelets work?
There is one commonality in all essential oil diffuser bracelets and that is either a porous stone or a material that can easily absorb those essential oils that you are hoping to make more frequent use out of. There are a number of different options when it comes to those materials: things like wood, lava stone, leather (or faux leather), and even clay.
Despite the fact that these are made of different materials, they all have the ability to absorb those essential oils and release the scent slowly as the day goes on. This can be hugely beneficial to your overall health to have with you.
There are typically two kinds of diffuser bracelets: ones that are simple and constructed of a single material (like the leather or with a single type of bead) and there are ones that are a bit more complicated. Those combine the aforementioned material with natural gemstones that provide an additional bonus and can even have a special meaning to the person wearing it.
An example of this might be a lava rock diffuser bracelet. Lava rocks have qualities of protection and grounding; they help you to find focus, bring some balance to your life, and can ground scattered energy. Or the Amazonite gems, which are also great balancing stones because they promote confidence and kindness while soothing fears and worries.
How do you use your essential oils with the diffuser bracelet?
The good thing is that, regardless of the type of oils or diffuser bracelet that you use, applying the oils is a pretty quick and easy process. You would just pick your favorite single oil or go with a blend, then add a drop to the material. Any of the aforementioned materials will work; just rub the drop in gently so that the oil absorbs into the material.
That’s all you need to do. When you do this, you can take your favorite scent with you anywhere you go, enjoying the soothing benefits that they have to offer. Having those benefits can make even the most stressful of days easier.
Tips & Tricks for using your diffuser bracelet
1. Create your own customer diffuser stack
You can bring your home diffuser blend with you when you have a diffuser bracelet. While it can be a bit tricky if you use a blend that includes several oils – adding more than two drops to your diffuser bracelet can get pretty messy – creating your own stack can be highly beneficial.
You can create complex stacks by wearing multiple bracelets. Simply take 2-3 oils and add a drop of each onto one bracelet and repeat the process for the others. You can combine all of those home diffuser blends that you love so much into an on-the-go diffuser stack that will give you all of the benefits of your favorite oils.
2. Skip the perfume, go with your favorite essential oils instead
For those of us with a beauty routine, it is worth noting that perfumes and colognes can have synthetic fragrances and toxic chemicals in them that are not great for your skin. Replacing those harmful chemicals with your favorite essential oil will give you that wonderful fragrance that you love so much.
Best of all, you can create your own custom blends that smell the way you want them to. When using a perfume, you get one scent or fragrance; with essential oils, you pick what the fragrance will be and can customize it as you go along.
3. Essential oils make for great gifts
If you have a team of your own in your business, one of the best ways to reward them is with their favorite essential oils and a diffuser bracelet. You can give essential oils for just about any occasion: birthdays, the celebration of a promotion, or even as a small token of appreciation during Christmas season or a special event.
Oils are a versatile and fun way to make someone’s day better and make someone feel better in their everyday routines.
4. Bug off
The summer months are something that most of us look forward to, but there are definitely caveats to this as well. And one of those caveats is that mosquitoes and other bugs will be everywhere, creating an annoyance that you just wish would go away.
Sure, there are bug sprays, but not all of them are effective and they all have a gross chemical smell. And heaven help you if you get that spray in your mouth! Don’t get bit up like crazy and definitely don’t use those repellants that have harmful chemicals in them.
Create an essential oil blend that will repel those nasty bugs so that you can enjoy the beautiful weather during those summer months. You can use things like geranium, lemongrass, and citronella to create a great bug blend that you can apply to your diffuser bracelet so that you can keep those nasty bugs away.
5. Motivate, de-stress, relax, and focus
Stress and anxiety are things that we all deal with in a number of different ways. There used to be a time when feeling those things were just things you dealt with and “got over”. But don’t let these serious detriments to your health plague you again.
And sometimes, you need that extra bit of motivation to help get you through those extra long days. Essential oils are a great way to help boost your mood, mitigate stress and anxiety, and give you the motivation that you need to get through your day.
There are a few combinations in particular that are worth checking out:
- Lime + spearmint
- Lemon + peppermint
- Orange + bergamot
- Lemongrass + anything to boost your mood
Ultimately, you can find the blend that you like the most that will help your mood and improve your ability to get through even the toughest of days.
6. Show a friend about essential oils
One of the best things about essential oils is that they can be shared with just about anyone. There are few things better in life that feel better than finding something awesome and sharing it with a friend or loved one. You want them to feel as good as you do, right?
It is also helpful to have a friend when diving into the world of essential oils. There are so many aspects to the process that it can be easy to get lost. Having someone there to answer things like “how do I user a diffuser? What is a carrier oil?” and so on can be a huge breath of fresh air when getting into the whole essential oil world.
You can show your friends the essential oil blends that you love the most and they can do the same, allowing both of you to experience a whole different blend that you may not have even been aware of. Not only that, a blend could have a special meaning to it, and you would get to share that with someone who means quite a bit to you.
Get your friends and family involved in the world of essential oils and you will have something to share that can change your life.
7. Essential oils make a great meditation or yoga booster
Implementing yoga and/or meditation into your life can certainly have its benefits. They can really have a drastic effect on your attitude and overall health and the best part is that you can definitely implement your favorite essential oils into the entire process.
The process is pretty simple: add a drop of your favorite blend or single oil to your essential oil diffuser bracelet before you begin practice and you can enjoy that scent throughout your yoga or mediation session. This can give you a new level of relaxation and stress-relief that you never thought possible.
Taking your life to the next level by implementing that level of anti-stress relief as well as relaxation can make you see life completely differently. And all you have to do is add a drop of your favorite essential oil to the mix.
Look around for blend ideas
If you are new to the essential oil world and don’t know where to start when it comes to creating your own blends, look around a little bit. Take some of the blends that others find as their favorites and go from there.
You might find those blends to be your favorite, too, or you can make some changes to find the blend that you like best. There are so many blends out there for all occasions that you can spend a long time finding those blends you love most.
