Make it Monday // DIY Howlite & Lava Stone Diffuser Bracelet

Howlite is a great stone for calming anger, anxiety, & the overactive mind.  It is a stone that seems to aid in balancing many emotions, which makes it perfect for a diffuser bracelet.  In addition to the Howlite stones being calming, Lava stones are also grounding and balancing.  These porous stones work perfectly with Essential oils.

Today I want to share another diffuser jewelry DIY with you - check out the first necklace DIY here.  I love bringing my oils with me everywhere - and jewelry is the best way to do it!  You can breathe in the calming (or invigorating) scent all day.  This diffuser bracelet is very hip but very bohemian and the pop of rose gold metal is very trendy!

supplies :: howlite beads, lava stone beads, elastic, super glue, charms (optional)
how to make a beaded bracelet
Cut a length of elastic and thread half of the howlite beads onto the strand.  Add a bead cap, then thread on the 3 lava stone beads.  Finish with another bead cap and the rest of your howlite beads.  The amount of howlite beads may vary depending on your wrist size.

Once the bracelet is big enough to fit around your wrist, tie a knot in the elastic and drop a dot of super glue to keep the knot in place.  This elastic can be kind of slippery so the knots don't hold well by themselves.
If you'd like to add some charms to your bracelet or a tassel, add a jump ring and attach it

Add a few drops of your favorite single essential oils or essential oil blends to the lave stone beads & calm your mind while you work or play!  You may want to make a few bracelets so that your oils don't mix and create unpleasant scents.
Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet
I keep a bottle of the Balance essential oil blend on my desk at work.  Half the time I've already run out of the house with out my diffuser jewelry so this little stash is perfect.  Uncapping the bottle and breathing in the scent allows me to calm an center myself in just a few breaths.  Scent is a powerful way to make connections - so when you use Balance to consistently calm & center yourself, it becomes easier to do so as you associate that scent with that feeling.
Nurturing Essential Oil
For this lunar cycle, I'm personally focusing on nurture & structure - so the Wild Orange scent is very nurturing and supportive.  I'm also working with Botswana Agate (for security) & Rose quartz (for love).  All of these work beautifully together!
Diffusing Essential Oils with Jewelry
This is currently my favorite nurturing blend - Wild Orange is very uplifting and nurturing, Bergamot is citrusy & bright, while Myrrh balances out the brightness of both citrus oils.  You can find a few more of my favorite blends in this post, too.  I purchase all of my essential oils through Doterra, let me know if you'd like to learn more about the oils!  Find the specific oil blend recipe in the NEW Five Sixteenths Facebook group!  Click here to join!

Essential oils have become a huge part of my spirituality and everyday wellness!  I can't wait to share more with you!

 Do you use essential oils?  Any tips you have for using them daily?

xoxo, Moe
