If you’re obsessed with crafting like us, you simply must try this DIY Clay Aromatherapy Jewelry… All you need is a few easily accessible items, crafting tools, Essential Oils, and your own creative passion!
Check out our simple “How-To” below and mold your own Essential Oil Pendant Necklace! Be sure to share your unique creations with us in the comments below!
What You’ll Need:
  1. Air-Dry Modeling Clay (found at any local craft store!)
  2. Sculpting tools (Find yourself a polymer clay modeling tool or simply use toothpicks!)
  3. A Round Bottle Cap or Clay-Cutting Shapes (Example: The top of a small hairspray bottle)
  4. Stamps (Also found at any local craft store!)
  5. Clay Roller or anything for flattening your clay
  6. String or Twine (Use twine to for a more natural or earthy vibe)
  7. Your favorite Essential Oils (Find our Essential Oil Jewelry creations below)

7 Easy-Steps for Making Clay Jewelry:

1. Prepare the Clay:
Rip off a decent-sized chunk of clay and roll it evenly flat with your clay roller, to your desired thickness. Using the open side of your cap or clay cutter, press into the clay, forming a perfect shape. Save the scrap clay to the side, you’ll need it later. If your clay has little soft ridges you can easily smooth them out with your finger or sand the edges later when the clay has dried.
2. Stamp your Clay:
Gently press your stamp into the clay. The ridges from the stamp will help keep the Essential Oils on the pendant. 
3. Carve a Hole in the Clay
Time to make the holes for your string! The tool you use for this really depends on the size of the string. We recommend using a thick Jute Twine, for a natural look and firm hold. Gently push through your pendant.
Next, take a small amount of the scrap clay from earlier and roll it into a little ball. If it’s dry and not sticking together, wet your hands a bit so it’s easier to manage.
Then, use the same tool to create a hole through the ball, creating a bead that will be used to hold the end of the necklace together. Next, allow your clay to dry. This typically takes a few hours but may take up to a whole day. 
4. Add String to Necklace
Thread your string through the holes in your bead, making a tight knot. Then, thread through the pendant. Take the other end of your string and tie a loop knot. Make sure this knot is big enough for your bead to slide through, yet tight enough so it doesn’t slip out. It sounds tricky, but it’s easy!
5. Add Essential Oils
Now comes the fun part! Add 1-2 drops of your favorite Essential Oil to the front of the pendant (not the side that will be touching your skin) and gently rub into the clay.
