Happy Mothering

Hi. I love the pendants! Im new to making diffuser necklaces and have been doing quite some reading and researching on which clay is best to use. The clay you suggested and which I ended up buying is polymer and contains a basis of PVC resin and a liquid plasticizer. This means that the end result after its baked contains plastic. And isnt it true thatessential oilsbreak down plastic over a period of time? I love this brand and clay for its multitude of colors to choose from, but I think it isnt ideal. What do you think? Also, others have suggested using a natural clay such asterra cottabecause it wont be broken down byessential oils. Thoughts??

Stamp a pattern onto the pendant, then use the straw to make a hole where the pendant will be tied to the string.

Your idea is great, Ill do it right now!!! thank so much

Do you mix the paint with the clay before making your pendant or do you paint afterwards? Do you have to use special paint for the oil to be absorbed into the pendant?

Bake the pendants according to the package directions and allow to cool completely.

[] DIY Baked ClayEssential OilDiffuser Necklaces by Happy Mothering []

I love these because they are so pretty. I made them with my girls. However, the clay will not absorb the oils? They are too hard. Any suggestions?

Cut shapes out of the clay with thecookie cutters, just like you would when baking cookies.

Fold thetwinein half, then insert the loop through the hole on the pendant.

Nice idea, but I wouldnt use this type of clay

This has inspired me to make someclay diffuser necklaces. I bought all the items you suggested and they look good, however they didnt get hard. They bend, therefore the oils arent absorbing into the clay. Any suggestions?

Essentials oils, specially therapeutic grade are powerful!

We didnt paint them at all. The clay comes in those colors ?

That blue heart is incredibly beautiful!

Do NOT use polymer clay for this stuff. It doesnt hold scent well and its toxic when mixed with EO. Please use earth clays like naturalterracottaand Porcelains

I think this project may need more research

If you dont want to make them, you can also buy aclay diffuser necklace, but its not as much fun as making them. So we made a plan and gathered our supplies.

Remove the clay from the package, and roll it out using arolling pinuntil its around 1/4 thick.

I bet these would work really well in the car hanging from the mirror to help keep the car smelling nice.

I love running myessential oildiffusers all the time, but when Im on the go I dont have that option. To get the therapeutic benefits ofessential oilson the go, the girls and I decided to make essential oil diffuser necklaces.

You can change the oils out after a few days as the scent will fade. I havent charged anyone ?

To use as an essential oil diffuser necklace, just apply 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil directly to the clay and lightly rub in.It should last for at least a few hours as long as youre using a quality essential oil. I love using scents that give me a nice, ongoing mood boost throughout the day.

Transfer the pendant to theparchment paperlinedcookie sheet, then repeat until youve made all of your clay pendants.

can you use the samebeads/necklace and change out the different oils each day or should there be a necklace dedicated to only one oil? cant wait to make some of these! What did you charge the ladies per necklace making, since you purchased all the craft items.

polymer clay is plastic based, it will not absorb the oils well and when it does it will break down and become toxic

Next time well be making air driedterracottaessential oils diffuser necklaces! But these ones were great because we could choose colors and they were ready for use very quickly.

I love this idea! I know you can purchase the clay diffusers, but from what Ive seen, a number of them are a bit expensive for what they actually are. Going this route, you can make them for yourself at a fraction of the cost. Theyd also make a great gift with a bottle or two ofessential oils. Thanks for the idea! Pinning!

Of clay, has anyone determines the best one to use that comes in nice colors?

Mine are still soft too. Ive baked them almost an hour now at 275• Am I doing something wrong? I used Sculpey Premo clay

Totally love it! I dont know can i make this, bcoz im not good at crafting ? but i still gonna try.

Great idea to add the scents to the necklace. They turned out cute!

Second is once the oils start eating the polymers in the clay what toxins are being released into our skin?

Want a beautifulessential oildiffuser necklace without the high price? This DIY BakedClay Diffuser Necklaceis so easy to make with a few supplies.

Im not wanting to come against this, but knowing plastics and chemicals and reactions would like to protect people. Even though they have held up doesnt mean this is a safe idea!

This is such a great idea and they are so pretty too! They would make awesome gifts. Pinning this idea. Glad they caught my eye over at the Wildly Original party ?

Anyway, if you could share some links/tips for creating perfume from EOs, that would be super!! (Assuming, of course, its even plausible to use EOs in that manner.) Then I might build on your project and try earrings too. Woo hoo!!

When you cooked them did you just cook them on theparchment paperandcookie sheet?

Wearing anessential oildiffuser necklace is one of my favorite ways to enjoyessential oils. Ever since I was introduced toessential oils, I have fallen deeper and deeper in love with them. I love how they can support my familys health, balance moods and so much more!

I have created DIY pendants for diffusing EO but using these awesome stamps made the pieces so beautiful. I loved it and will try some at home soon.

Take the other end and stick it through the loop.

Bake the pendants according to the package directions and allow to cool completely.

Quite a while back I stopped using anything with the ubiquitous & never-defined ingredient fragrance. I dont miss the exposure to the fake stuff, but I definitely miss wearing perfume. As such, Im wondering if these clay necklace diffusers could be used as substitutes for perfume/cologne? I mean, how cool would it be to combine two of my favorite make me feel pretty things: jewelry and perfume?!?!

Once theyre cool, cut a piece oftwineto your desired length go a little longer than you think you want because Ill show you how to make them adjustable.

Next, take one end of the string and tie it to the other end. You should be able to move the knot up and down the string its tied to.

Wow! I love coming across totally new ideas, and I have never seen anything like this before.These are so cute and such a creative way to diffuse oils on the go. I love it!!

Hmm, thats interesting. The oils will appear to sit on top of ours at first, but do absorb in because the smell lasts for a couple days. Did you use a different type of clay?

Once we had all of the supplies for our essential oil diffuser necklaces, they were so easy to make them! We spent an afternoon making them and we have a huge selection now.

Fold the twine in half, then insert the loop through the hole on the pendant.

SmallCookie Cutters(we used this set)

I have used polymer clay for years and breakdown was my first concern. We cant even store in certain plastic containers because it starts to eat that particular plastic. Or use certain sealants !

These are so pretty! Thank you for sharing them on Show Me Saturday!

Inspiration to live a simple, natural lifestyle

Thanks for the tutorial and the links to the items you used.

Hi Samantha, yes we just baked them on acookie sheetandparchment paper. If they are still soft, they probably need to be baked for a bit longer. I always have to bake things for longer than normal because we live at altitude.

Very clever! Thanks so much for linking this up at Best of the Weekend!

Hi! I use high quality oils and they break down petrochemicals because they are toxins. I would think that theessential oilswould break down the polymer clay, since its a petroleum product. Just wondering how the pendants are holding up.

To use as an essential oil diffuser necklace, just apply 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil directly to the clay and lightly rub in. It should last for at least a few hours as long as youre using a quality essential oil. I love using a Joyful blend of essential oils on my necklace for a nice, ongoing mood boost throughout the day.

What a great idea! They are so pretty!

This is such a wonderful project -pinning for later

It was a really fun project to do with the kids. We had so much fun that I forgot to take pictures of the process, but its pretty self explanatory.

Cut shapes out of the clay with thecookie cutters, just like you would when baking cookies.

This is such a wonderful project -pinning for later ?

Then, tie the other end to the other string, again making sure you tie it so the knot will move up and down.To adjust, all you have to do is move the knots up or down to make the necklace larger or smaller.

I used a Necklace bought fromAmazon, but what you did is so cuteeeeee ?

Im late to the game and just saw this page. What an awesome idea and Im interested in making these now! However after reading concerns over the type

Theyre holding up just fine! I use the purest and most potent oils on the market too ?

Does the oven bake take the oil as well as the air dry clay?

Appreciate your help and I love the adjustable knot

I just made a few necklaces but used a different type of clay terra-cotta clay that is air dried. it holds the scent well, but I accidentally dropped the necklace on the floor and it chipped. Wondering how the clay you used holds up?

Such a wonderful idea! I have many small oil diffusers that I can bring them to anywhere I want. But these oil diffuser necklaces are far far better than that! Plus, they looks extremely beautiful. This idea is so impressive, I totally love it! Thank you so much for sharing!

These ones will hold the scent for several hours.

I work with polymer clay making fairy doors and sculptures and I thought the same thing. I am going to try it but since they are a plastic base I also dont understand how they can absorb the oil, wouldnt it just linger on the outside of the pendent?

I have seen other versions of clay necklaces, but yours if really beautiful!

Transfer the pendant to the parchment paper lined cookie sheet, then repeat until youve made all of your clay pendants.

Remove the clay from the package, and roll it out using a rolling pin until its around 1/4 thick.

We use to put oils for different deseases on cotton disks, in pockets. But your ideais gorgeous ! Thank you !

I think polymer clay just doesnt do as well as air clay for this project, I do love the ability to stamp though and the colors of the polymer. I think what Im going to do is use my sculpy, stamp then add lava stone and put the EOs on the stone.

Sorry i was forget to ask, im gonna buy thedoTERRA Essential Oils, do you think its good? I wanna try it but dont know is that have a natural scent, because im quite sensitive ?

My final product just will not absolve the oils, what might gave gone wrong? Not baked long enough? Wrong brand? I use Fimo effects coz that is what available for in my country!

it wont absorb, just break surface down and become toxic poor choice of product choice
