Aroma beads which made from essential oils has an exceptional characteristic of carrying the therapeutic effects and not to mention that it can be used practically on a lot of things in the household.
These beads are more potent than potpourri and is generally safer than using aromatherapy candles without the need for flame of course.
Lavender, sandalwood and lemongrass are just some of the essential oils that you can use to make aroma beads but in reality, the possibilities are endless. Since you can make your own aromatherapy bead, you can add in essential oils that can provide you with the benefits that you are hoping for. For example, if you are looking for sinus relief, aroma beads infused with eucalyptus may be what you need.
Aroma beads are commonly used as air fresheners, decorative items and even gifts. Using all natural essential oils can make any common aroma bead into an aromatherapy bead.
With aromatherapy beads, you can reap the benefits of aromatherapy simply by placing them in a spot in your home where you often stay. You can even carry a small packet of it in your bag and whiff it throughout the day for a quick relief from stress or feel rejuvenated.
There are also some essential oil blends that can make your aroma beads as moth repellants to save your clothes or even as a scent absorber for your stinky shoes.
Aroma beads are made simply by infusing some essential oils and color into plastic beads. The infusing process may take 24-48 hours or even longer. These can then be placed in any potpourri dish that doesnt use direct heat. You can also place them in a cloth bag and put them in closets, drawers, luggage and storage bins as air fresheners or to keep moths away from your clothes.
If you want to make aromatherapy beads to keep moths away from your seasonal clothing, blend 30 drops of cedar wood, 30 drops of sandalwood, 20 drops of lime, 20 drops lavender and 20 drops germanium and pour the mixture onto 2 oz of aroma beads.
After the beads are infused with the essential oils, place them in organza bags and place these bags among your clothes and storage boxes.
Remember not to pack everything tightly as aroma beads need to be able to throw their scent, either with the help of heat or air.
If you want to get rid of some stinky smell, whether it be around garbage or in your shoes, you can repeat the same process by blending 4 ml of lemongrass and 2 ml anise and pouring the mixture onto unscented aroma beads.
Place the infused beads in organza bags and place them were you need foul smell to be absorbed. Leaving the beads even just overnight can easily absorb foul smell and replace it with a more pleasing aroma.
