Drops of Joy Diffuser Necklace

I love the concept of essential oil diffuser jewelry, so when Sara from Drops of Joy Jewelry reached out to me to see if I would like to try one of their new designs, I was more than happy to check it out!

They have a new stainless steel pendant called ‘Devoted’ that she sent for me to try, and I have to say I LOVE it!

If you’ve never used essential oil diffuser jewelry before, you might not know how it works!  Basically there is an area on the jewelry where you can put a drop (or more) of essential oil, and the oil will diffuse throughout the day so you can smell it.  In the case of this necklace, it is like a locket.  You simply open the pendant up to reveal a small leather pad, which is where you put your drop of essential oil.

I have been obsessed with Young Living’s Valor essential oil blend lately, so I have used that exclusively on my necklace the past few weeks!  I didn’t used to like the smell of Valor, but I cannot get enough and think it smells like blueberries.  :)

One of the things that I found to be different about this diffuser necklace is that the pendant is really nice and heavy, and the back of it is flat.  As such, it rests against your skin, which in turn heats up the pendant and helps it to release the scent of your essential oil!

There are many days where I catch a whiff of it and unconsciously pull it closer to smell!  I was showing my friend my necklace at Bible study the other day, and later out of the blue she said, “Man, you love that thing, don’t you?!”  I was like, “What do you mean?”  She said, “You keep on smelling it!”  Ha!!  Busted!  :)

The length of the chain I received was 22″, and I love it.  Here is a picture off my phone I tried to take, ha!

I find myself wearing this necklace all the time, even with my other jewelry (as evidenced by the photo above!).  I just love being able to smell my essential oils throughout the day.  I wear it clear up until the time I go to bed.  As a matter of fact, when I am leaning over to kiss my kids goodnight before bed, they always ask if they can take another smell of my necklace.  :)

This necklace did come with a couple other replacement leather pads, but so far I have only used the one.  One drop of essential oil lasts an entire day, and sometimes into day 2 or even 3.

The beauty is that you can change the essential oils you are diffusing daily if you’d like to!

All in all, I LOVE this necklace and am so happy Sara reached out to me to see if I would like to try it.  Essential oil diffuser jewelry would make a GREAT Christmas gift for someone, too!

Drops of Joy Jewelry has so many gorgeous options, you can check out their entire product line on the Drops of Joy Jewelry website.  Also, if you subscribe to their newsletter, you will receive a coupon for 20% off your first order!  Santa can get lots of good ideas this year.  :)

The Mother Lode! A.k.a. My November Essential Rewards Order

November Essential Rewards

Yes, my order this month was HUGE!  But part of the reason there is SO MUCH here is that I got SIX FREE products, worth over $250!!  I have never seen Young Living do this before, but the November 2015 monthly promotion is amazing.  You have until November 30th to take advantage of this, and you can actually earn the monthly promo TWICE.  Wow.  Obviously I took advantage of all the free product this month!

Free Products

Let’s start with the free product I received this month… Frankincense is one of my favorite oils, and I was getting ready to order another soon.  This oil is very precious… and costly!  It currently retails over $96!  Of course you can save 24% like I do with a wholesale membership bringing it down to under $75.  But still!!  It’s also part of the Premium Starter Kit, so that is another way you can get your hands on it… however, I was more than happy to get it for free this month.

Sacred Frankincense was free as well.  Only Young Living produces this amazing variety of Frankincense.

Orange and nutmeg were free, some amazing oils for the holiday season.  And Christmas Spirit was also free – this is one of my most favorite oils to diffuse this time of year!  It smells like you have hot mulled cider simmering on the stove.  LOVE.

Ortho Sport massage oil was free with my order, and I’m looking forward to using this one, it’s a first for me!

My Regulars

You know I love Young Living’s lip balms.  I ordered my regular Lavender lip balm, but I decided to get a little wild and crazy this month and give Cinnamint a try, too.  ;)

My favorite hand soap, like ever, is the Thieves Foaming hand soap.  I was in need of another refill.

My kiddos and I LOVE the Thieves Mints.  It has become part of their morning routine before we hop in the car to go to school… these go quickly around here!

I really like the Thieves Aromabright Toothpaste, it makes your teeth feel super clean.  My sister was just telling my mom how awesome this toothpaste is, so we have her using it now, too.  :)

I have a natural deodorant I really like, but it contains baking soda which is sometimes irritating.  As a solution, I put a thin layer of Young Living’s Mountain Mist Deodorant as a barrier between my skin and my favorite deodorant, it really soothes the sensitive skin under my arms!!

As for oils, I was low on Lavender, Thieves, RC, Panaway, and EndoFlex.

So yes, this was a BIG order, but almost half of it was free!!  :)  Did you take advantage of this month’s promo?!  Put that Christmas Spirit in the diffuser!!!

My favorite gift ideas this Christmas are giving someone the Dewdrop Diffuser with Christmas Spirit essential oil blend – this blend smells AMAZING, and it’s so much better than burning a candle!  I think it smells like mulled cider simmering on the stove – it makes your home smell so cozy for the season.
