Aromatherapy Necklace

If you’re loving wearing your essential oils and looking for a modern style, this one is for you!

This necklace is truly light as a feather and with a stainless steel chain you’ll get a lot of life out of it (and no green neck)! The natural lava rock is porous and typically holds the scent of your oil for about a day, depending on how much is used. Since the rock is open to the air you’ll get maximum scent exposure along with the benefit of having it directly against your skin**.

The design of this necklace is extremely versatile, allowing you to adjust it to the most comfortable length to wear it close to your neck and above the neckline of your top.

Black lava rocks are the most requested but additional colors are available in limited quantities.

**Always be aware of your own personal sensitivities to oils and add a carrier oil when necessary, keeping with the normal safety precautions recommended by manufacturers for essential oil usage. Customers are responsible to personally determine what oils are safe for direct contact to their skin. Harper and Sadie is not responsible for any irritation due to direct skin contact with oils applied to the lava rock.

Aromatherapy just got a lot more stylish

I was SO excited to get these beautiful diffuser cage lockets. They contain lava rock beads which are pourus and perfect for your essential oils.

How to use: Open the locket and apply 1 to 2 drops of your favorite oil to the lava rock bead. The rock will soak up the oil and gently diffuse the scent throughout the day. Depending on the oil , the scent may last a few days or several. As the scent fades simply add an additional drop or two as needed.

I bought some Amber…Is it real?

How can I tell if my Amber is real? This was my question for today!
As it turns out it is quite easy if you can separate your Amber from a strand or the piece of jewelry it is in. For my test I mixed 1 part salt with 2 parts water (translation: 1/3 cup salt and 2/3 cup warm water). Let the salt dissolve in the water. Note: this amount of salt will not fully dissolve, there will still be some salt in the bottom of the cup.
Now, just drop in your Amber pieces and if they float they are real. If they sink, they are not real Amber. They may be glass or some type of resin or plastic. Thankfully, the Amber I tested today is REAL!
There are a few other ways to test Amber, but some of them are destructive so you wouldn’t want to do these tests on a finished piece of jewelry. I’ll delve into the other methods in a future post.
