For my Birthday, Kim made me a Scented Vial Necklace, here’s an image of it.
It may not be clear from the photo, but when Kim added the white glitter to the died salt-crystals, the glitter changed from white to a blue-green colour, it’s super pretty and I enjoy the smell of vanilla almost as much as I enjoy all the lavender scented-items Kim has made for me.
When I stayed over at Kim’s, one of the many things Kim offered to show me how to make was the Scented Vial Necklaces (there’s a link to the tutorial at the top of the page). When we were Hunting and Gathering for craft supplies, Kim found these super helpful small plastic-containers that come with lids (they kind of look like small containers that restaurants sometimes use for packaging sauce a small amount of salad).
This meant that I could take a couple of scoops of the pre-coloured salt-crystals and add my own essential oils to it without contaminating the whole batch. To be honest, the glass-vials we used are small, so you probably won’t need more than a single tablespoon. I was also a little too enthusiastic with the glitter. In the pictures below, you may be able to see the glitter sticking to the bottom, which means there’s too much, although both Kim and I agree that there’s no such thing as too much glitter.
This batch of salt-crystals has been scented with Dusk’s Breathe Easy essential oil.
This batch of salt-crystals has been scented with lavender essential oil.
This batch of salt-crystals has been scented with lemon essential oil.
This is a batch Kim made, it doesn’t have any glitter or essential oils added to it, however, I was thinking of obtaining some rose essential oil and maybe a light-bulb shaped glass-vial from Ebay and/or Etsy (links down the bottom), IDK, I’ll see how I go.
The Finished Product:
This is the lavender one, unfortunately I gave the other two to my mother and sister but forgot to take a photo of them. Kim informed me that they obtained the cord from Daiso, so I’ll have to do some investigating there. Although you could use any cord you have access to, I like this particular type of cord, it’s thin so you’ll need to double-up with it, but I like the feel of it and the range of colours available.
So, have any readers attempted to make a scented vial necklace before? How did it go? What materials did you use? Let me know what you think about these in the comment section down below.
