How to Make Your Own Aromatherapy Bracelet with Lava Beads – In this video learn how to create a strung bracelet featuring lava beads, howlite gemstone beads, and TierraCast pewter beads. Once the bracelet is finished, you can add essential oils to the lava beads to create your very own aromatherapy bracelet. In the course of the video you will learn how to string the beads, use the magical crimp forming tool, and how to add essential oils to your beads. SAFETY WARNING: Essential oils for external use only. Other than aromatherapy, dilute with a carrier oil. For topical use, rub a very small diluted amount on the inside of your elbow area to test for any allergic reaction before use. Discontinue use if any allergic reaction occurs. Keep out of the reach of pets. Essential oils can be potentially toxic to pets at certain concentrations. Avoid contact with eyes, keep out of the reach of children. If pregnant, consult with your health care provider before use.

thank you that is a lovely video

Pholm H says:

Great video!

Dolly Ad says:

Very nice video. I saw one the other day from Fire Mountain gems, and that guy said their lava beads have a waxy coating that must be removed before essential oil is applied. Do your lava beads have that wax coating?

Abby Normal says:

Great project! As you said, it doesn’t take much PEO so start slow then only add more if needed. Contact with straight PEO can also irritate skin so let the beads completely absorb the oil before wearing your beautiful “personal diffuser” 😉 Also, some people are highly sensitive to strong scents due to allergies, asthma and other medical conditions – another reason to go easy on the oil 🙂

murphy1384 says:

Can you change the scent? How long should you wait if you want to change the scent? Any reason you only put on lava beads on one side?

Robin Smith says:

Does the oils make the lava bleed? I haven’t tried the oils with them yet. Also, will the oils get on your clothes, or do they absorb pretty thoroughly?

Amy Enzenroth says:

Wasting so much wire.

StellaMagiaDesigns says:

I saw another tutorial where they dunked the lava beads in hot water before making the bracelet What’s that about?

Real Girl says:

Can you use your favorite perfume instead?
