Needlework itself is already a mindful exercise and by extent promotes calm, relaxing, and meditative states of being. A lot of stitchers also utilize scented candles or oil diffusers in their stitchy spots which is wonderful, but you can’t take it with you. That’s why I love the idea that you can have a piece of that therapy anytime via aromatherapy jewelry.
I first saw this trend on Annie’s Catalog under their Gifts and Gadgets section. There are some different types to choose from and Etsy shops have a quite a selection of aromatherapy necklaces. Let’s break down the choices you have.
But first a couple more things to keep in mind:
- Some necklaces do not come with a chain or just have a basic chain
- Many utilize essential oils for fragrance, see if it includes a sample bottle
- If your new to essential oils, it might give you a sticker shock fyi 🙂
Other options include lava rocks. These still require the essential oils, but the porous rock absorbs the oil.

A few are marketed towards men for their simpler design.
These use cotton wicks to soak up the oil fragrance.

You can get reusable felt pads for a pop of color or basic black.

Crystal bottles for a touch of elegance and have more of a medium price point.

You can find those with higher price points like this one. It is handmade from silver.
Notice you can choose sprigs of herbs rather than essential oils!
Etsy shop: JeanDesignsJewelry
This one has a roller ball to dispense the essential oil. It is handmade and includes a gemstone, and as such it is at that higher price point.
