Not all aromatherapy jewelry is made the same

The essential oil industry isn't going anywhere because essential oils work!  With it's exponential growth, people are selling cheap aromatherapy jewelry at ridiculous prices. There are products being cheaply made and can also be bad for your health.

Reasons You Should Avoid Cheap Aromatherapy Jewelry

Cheap jewelry will tarnish, break and stain.  This is especially true with aromatherapy jewelry because some oils will oxidize the metals causing it to tarnish and corrode. 

Studies have shown that a lot of inexpensive metal jewelry contain high levels of toxins and carcinogens.  If you're buying aromatherapy jewelry, then I think it's safe to assume that you're probably not interested in wearing this stuff on a regular basis.  Cheaply made metal jewelry can cause allergic reactions and even turn your skin green! Different metals can cause skin redness, irritation, itching, and swelling. And when cheap jewelry oxidizes, it will wear out faster and can leave a nasty green mark on your skin.

Access to some of these cheap aromatherapy lockets require you to remove the chain from the locket in order to open them to change out the pad or to re-apply oil onto to felt pads or lava beads.  

316L Stainless Steel & Why It's The Best Metal For Aromatherapy Jewelry

Stainless steel is strong, doesn't tarnish, and is hypoallergenic.

Now, there are many different kinds of stainless steel, and one of the most commonly used type for modern jewelry is 316L stainless steel, which is a super-strong, surgical-grade metal that is perfect for aromatherapy jewelry. 

316L stainless steel will not oxidize or change colors. It's much stronger than gold and silver, is naturally scratch resistant and can handle a lot more wear and tear.

This is especially important for aromatherapy jewelry, where your metal will not only be coming into contact with your skin, sweat, and natural body oils, but also with essential oils and other substances. You want jewelry that will resist corrosion and won't react to the oils.  So, if you wear your aromatherapy jewelry daily, 316L stainless steel will last a lot longer than other metals. 

It's also hypoallergenic and perfect for those with sensitive skin.  The other main benefit is that it is more affordable than gold or silver. It makes Total Sense for you to buy one or more of our aromatherapy necklaces, you will get a lot more for your money.  ~T
