My fascination with Aromatherapy began many years ago, when I studied Aromatherapy and Massage.
Unfortunately, fate intervened, and now my disability and lack of mobility mean that this option is no longer open to me…..
But, although I cannot continue as a massage therapist, I still create my oil blends for personal use.
To this end, I have combined the possibility of using essential oils alongside my gemstone jewellery, to create a double edge sword to fight both physical and emotional issues.
(I include an explanation of the way that aromatherapy works at the end of this listing)
Thus, when creating this gemstone bracelet to address anxiety and panic attacks, I also add Lava Stone which is porous, and can absorb essential oils to also address anxiety.
I recommend using Lavender Essential oil for its wonderful healing, calming properties, or you might like to create your very own blend, just as I have, using for example, Lavender, Bergamot and Clary Sage.
These oils are believed to reduce anxiety, stress and depression, calming and balancing emotions and instilling a sense of peace, helping to avert Panic Attacks.
Alternatively, proprietary essential oil blends are widely available to address anxiety and promote calm, if you don’t wish to create your own, but these are not tailored to your specific requirements and can be much more expensive.
For further information on creating your own blends, you can contact me or search a reputable aromatherapy website, but never ingest any oils, or apply undiluted to the skin without specialist advice.
Dab a few spots of your choice of essential oil/oil blend directly onto the lava beads and gently rub in. The stone will absorb the oil, and the warmth from your body will help to gently release its aroma, as you benefit from its emotional or physical healing benefits.
You will benefit from these properties as you go through the day, but any time you need an additional boost, just sniff the beads!
The scent can last on the beads anywhere from a few hours to a few days, and as it gradually fades, you can reapply oil as desired.
I will apply my Anxiety-Ease blend to the stones before posting, although the effect will possibly dissipate during transit.
Panic Attacks can strike at any time, you become caught in their tight grip as you experience a sudden onset of fear or anxiety, your chest tightens, your heart pounds, and you begin to sweat.
This can lead to other symptoms, such as tingling or numbness, dizziness, burning and lightheadedness, and you may feel overwhelmed, helpless and terrified.
Gemstones on the Turquoise spectrum are known for their peaceful, calming and restorative properties.
Holding or touching these gemstones while you focus on your breathing can help you to feel grounded and secure, so they are perfect to help you to cope with panic attacks.
Their gentle energy helps you find your way back to peace, achieving a calmer state of mind by helping you to relax and release the tensions and stress.
I have chosen the following gemstones because they are believed to demonstrate calming, restorative properties.
Turquenite (also known as blue Howlite)
Creating Your Bracelet
Each bracelet consists of semi precious gemstone beads, with spacer beads defining each group of gemstones.
I use Swarovski type spacers, as the multi faceted nature of them reflects and augments the gemstones, although should you prefer, small silver plated or hematite spacers can be substituted, or omitted entirely, just let me know when you place your order.
Your bracelet will be made on non stretch beading thread, with a lobster
claw or toggle closure. These bracelets are adjustable, but can be made to fit perfectly.
Prices vary according to size, as larger bracelets require more gemstones.
The following sizes are available from the drop down menu:
Lady S: 6.5″
Lady M: 7″
Lady L: 7.5″
Lady XL: 8″
Male S: 7.5″
Male M: 8″
Male L: 8.5″
Your bracelet will be perfectly finished with a Tibetan Silver charm to symbolise the search for love, whether it is a heart and key to unlock your inner desire, a heart and a star representing wishing for love, a Cupid to find new love or a fairy wand to sprinkle magic back into your relationship, the choice is yours.
Simply let me know which option you prefer in the drop down menu.
All of my bracelets are lovingly created with intent, then charged with Reiki for an additional boost.
They are gently placed into an organza bag, with a descriptive card and an information leaflet detailing each gemstone, its properties, and how to care for them.
Finally, this is beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon, ready for you to unwrap your fabulous bracelet!
A unique and personalised piece of jewellery, each bracelet will be lovingly made, and charged with intent, and the complete item charged with Reiki. The bracelet will be presented in an organza bag, packaged with a detailed card listing all of the Gemstones used, and their specific qualities relating to your requirements, as well as a leaflet explaining how to care for your gemstone jewellery.
So, the means to begin to control these panic attacks can soon be in your hands, encircling your wrist with beautiful gemstone beads, enveloping you in scented essential oils as it metaphorically surrounds you with calm and peace.
Every item in my shop is custom made to order, exactly to your requirement, and I can happily accommodate most requests or changes.
However, please be aware that this means an order can take up to 10-14 days to create, before shipping.
When describing and designing my gemstone jewelery, I sometimes refer to the historic ‘meanings’ attributed to each stone, and the symbolism and stories that have evolved around each shiny rock throughout the course of human history, for example diamonds have come to represent eternal love, and are often used in engagement rings for this very reason. Please be aware that these properties relate to folklore, and spiritual or traditional metaphysical beliefs, and are for entertainment purposes only. They are not intended as any sort of medical diagnosis or treatment, and should NEVER be used to replace the advice or treatment of your medical practitioner.
If you have concerns about your physical or mental health, please consult your doctor, dentist or hospital immediately.
Additionally, using gemstones does not release you from responsibility for your own actions, eg Wearing an Exam and School Success bracelet won’t get you the grades if you don’t attend class or put in the work!
How Do Essential Oils Work?
The sense of smell is very powerful indeed, and has been proven to balance emotions and moods, as well as having a profound emotional and physical effect, via the central and autonomic nervous systems.
Smells are especially powerful because they can trigger specific memories to cause emotional responses, and creating a positive association with a scent and then conditioning oneself to that scent can help to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Essential oils can be used to alleviate symptoms of many conditions, and work in two ways, firstly the scent can work emotionally as described above, and secondly the natural composition of an individual oil has distinctive chemical properties, such as anti-inflammatory or cell rejuvenation etc. When applied to the skin, these active chemicals can be absorbed, just like in common medications, such as creams and patches.
Thus, these oils can enter the body through the skin, or through inhalation.
Different factors can affect the absorption of essential oils through the skin. If you massage or apply heat to the area first, it will increase circulation to that area, and cause an increase in absorption of essential oils. Some areas of skin (under arms, head, palms, soles of feet, etc.) are also more permeable than others.
It is recommended that most Essential Oils be diluted before being applied to the skin, using a carrier oil such as coconut or olive oil, added to a bath or as an ingredient in lotions and other beauty products. Another way that essential oils enter the body is inhalation through the nose or mouth. This can be via a diffuser, or steam inhalation.
During inhalation, molecules travel through the nose to the brain and can affect the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance. Molecules inhaled are also carried to the lungs and interact with the respiratory system.
Wearing the beads at the pulse points of the wrist means that the essential oil can quickly access the bloodstream, as well as enveloping you in its healing scent. So you can now look and smell fabulous, as well as feeling better!
Avoid wearing your bracelet when sleeping, bathing or showering.
To avoid any unexpected allergic reaction, it is advisable to research and dilute test any oil you have not previously used, before applying it to exposed skin areas.
Do not use essential oils during pregnancy without consulting a qualified aromatherapist.
The Anxiety Calming Blend used on this bracelet was made with pure Essential Oils of Lavender, Bergamot and Clary Sage in Grapeseed Carrier Oil.
Unlike some unscrupulous or often uninformed sellers, I will never use synthetic or imitation gemstones in my jewellery. Consequently, I am sometimes unable to source specific genuine gemstones (eg Malachite) at a price that will not impact greatly on the cost of your item. In these cases, rather than use synthetic or imitation stones, I use alternatives with similar properties.
Occasionally, a few very pale gemstones are colour enhanced, which does not affect their meanings and properties.
You can be assured that you will be receiving the genuine article.

I used to be an active primary school teacher, until problems arising from Congenital Hip Dislocation and Bi Lateral Hip Dysplasia. Shortly after the birth of my children, I developed Severe Arthritis in my left hip. After some time and waiting lists (another story!) I had a hip replacement on my left hip. I returned to work and caring for my family, but the hip was never ‘right’ and still caused issues. To cut a very long story short, after multiple surgeries, eventually a severe bone infection was found. This meant removal of the entire prosthesis and iv antibiotic before replacing the hip again. However, Chronic Pain ensued. And ultimately I was offered the option of total permanent removal of the implant leaving me disabled but without pain. Sadly, that didn’t work out too well, and the same level of pain ensued. I was referred to various PMU and underwent many procedures, and have had a spinal cord stimulator implant.
Gemstones have long been my passion, and I’ve always dabbled making gemstone bracelets and pressing them onto my long suffering friends whenever they mentioned some ailment. It was a natural progression for me, when I had to retire from teaching on medical grounds, to begin making my jewellery to sell. This began simply as a way to keep busy, whilst I was in and out of hospital, and I only ever made items to order for people I knew.. but they were paying me, so I could buy more sparkly rocks!
Now I make all sorts of jewellery, but each item is still made with as much love as those first bracelets, and the recipient is the main focus at the centre of everything I create.
So I’m afraid I don’t have ready made items that I can pop into a Jiffy bag when you order, but I will create a specially commissioned piece just for you!
This story started with me as an active young(ish) mum with a career I loved. Now my children are post University, working and living their own lives, my husband is my carer, and I spend a lot of time in bed!
