Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet

I’m a little late, but I’m just getting into the essential oils game.  I haven’t done much with them in the past, but I bought a diffuser a couple weeks ago for my daughter’s room.  Ever since, I’ve been looking into other ideas to use with oils (you will see them appearing soon).  Today I got motivated to DIY this bracelet.  I saw something very similar on Etsy last night.  I was so inspired, I went out today about bought the stuff to make it and wanted to share it with the blogging world.  Super fun and exciting!

I meant to wrap my wrist 3 times, however I failed a bit on figuring out how much would be taken away from knots and braiding.  I am still in love tho.  This wraps twice around my wrist and will diffuse any essential oil.  The key is to wait a couple days in-between scents (unless you don’t mind them mixing).

Supplies:
Faux Suede Cording (approximately 72 inches, or 6 feet)
1 button (with a big enough hole(s) to fit the cording through)

Directions:
1. Cut one piece of suede cording to 24 inches, leave the other at 48 inches.  (You may need to increase these measurements by a couple inches if you have a larger wrist).

2. Take your button and thread through the longer piece of suede cording and place in the middle.

3.  Tie a knot with all three cords close to the button, securing it in place.

4. Braid the 3 cords until you have reached your desired length (making sure it will fit your wrist).  Tie another knot, leave a gap big enough to fit the button you have used through, and tie your final knot.

5. Cut off any excess cording.

6. Add 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil directly to the top of the cording.  It will dry quickly.  Refresh your oil or change the scent after a couple days!

VOILA!  A DIY diffuser bracelet that is adorable and awesome!

Notes: Mine ended up being about 15.5 inches long.
