DIY Essential Oil Necklace

good header pic for eo post

 

These are so awesome ya’ll !!!! I’m definitely over excited about them ! Tonight me and my sisters had craft night for us and the kids so fun !!! And this what I took to make for all of us. It turned out way better than expected. I mean it’s so neat and unique feel. I will be giving these as gifts this year with a bottle of essential oil. Perfect cute combo.

It didn’t cost me one penny to make these cause I had everything if I make tons more I will have to buy a few things but it will still be very cheap. A few months ago I jumped on the Essential Oil wagon and have loved using them daily from then on. I was a skeptic at first that’s just my nature I’m always a skeptic at first. They really work !! I mean they didn’t make me look like a supermodel but did the trick for relaxing, colds and fevers, headaches, energy, (I use mine in my diffuser the most) etc…. I mean when you search Essential Oils 900 million resources pop up. So you get the idea !

How cool is the wood sliver Essential Oil Necklace that absorbs the oil and you can have it on all day and enjoy the sent and benefits of the oil.

You can make or buy more than one necklace for different necklaces and label them on the back or use one necklace for different oils. After you apply a few drops to the wood the sent should last anywhere from 12-48 hours so after that you could change oil if you like.

whatyouneed

** These are the materials I used some could be changed if you wish.

~ Necklace Chain or Rope.

~ A stick about the size you want your wood sliver see pic below.

~ A very “true” tested glue I used Elmers’s ProBond Advance I have used it before on stronger projects and it was better than gorilla glue. But any kind you know will work. I do not suggest glue gun.

~ A blank necklace charm I think they are called blank jewelry disk. This is what you will glue your wood piece on.

** I used a skill saw but I honestly think you could use a knife if sharp enough.

** something to apply pressure to the blank jewelry disk and the wood sliver. Pressure must be applied at least for 2 hours to get a  true hold. I used vise grips it worked perfect.

AND THAT IS ALL !!! SO EASY AND AWESOME

Take a look below at my detailed pictures if any of my written directions were not clear the pictures should help…

what all you need

The Stick, Wood Slivers, Chain, & the blank disk charm.

the stick i used

This is the stick I used I found it out in the woods.

glue glue

The ProBond glue worked very good but you can use a lot of different kinds.

putting glue on black and then put wood

I first put glue on the blank jewelry disk then applied the wood sliver on top.

putting pressure on the wood and blank

Right after I applies the glue then the wood disk I immediately placed in the vice grips so it could dry for a few hours. 

necklace on

Look how cute and unique the finished product is !!! YES I’m very proud of this DIY project.

Please let me know if you have any questions at all I would love to answer them all !!! And if you make one please share here I cant wait to see !!!

Thanks so much for coming by it means more than you know.

    This Idea is genius! Especially for the oils that are hot and need a right amount of carrier oil! This can skip that step ad save money! I'm in awe of how awesome this idea is! Thank you so much for sharing :-D

  14. says

    That's very clever! Did you sand the edges of the wood slices? Have you noticed them snagging on clothing or anything?
    • Laci Carlson says

      No I didn't sand at all and they have not snagged one time I was very excited how smooth they cut :) Thanks so much for coming by !!!
  15. thequinnmommy says

    What a great idea! Do you have a few necklaces--one for each EO or can you use the same necklace with different oils?
    • Laci Carlson says

      Hey most ppl say you can use one but I really like using one for each :) thanks so much for coming by.

    That's so funny I came across this today because I heard about it for the first one today. I love essential oils! I often just but them on a napkin and sniff them when I'm feeling anxious. Such a neat DIY
  17. says

    Wow, this is super adorable! I'd love to get some friends together over the weekend to try this!
  18. says

    I love it!!! I definitely need to try this! I have an essential oil locket already but I LOVE the wood look!
  19. says

    This is an awesome idea. I love the idea of being able to smell my necklace whenever I need to calm down a bit so I would likely use a calming oil. LiveLifeWell, Allison

    What a cute idea! I'm definitely late to the essential oils party (can't really say I've arrived), but from what I've heard they have wonderful health benefits! I'm always in favor of anything that helps with health AND is fashionable!
