Vessel Scents Of Style Aroma Therapy Locket

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given for Testing and Review Purposes at a discounted price.

I have never owned a diffuser or aroma therapy locket let alone with beads before so because I was intrigued I decided to order one.
The one I got was the big zinc alloy heart that includes a a garnet charm and set of 15 Ruby colored sent spheres made of porous polymer clay.
The heart itself is big and magnetic and it has an antique gold finish and hangs on a 30 inch chain with loops affixed by a lobster clap claw.
The spheres are soft and come in a cute container included a the cute purple gift box with the Vessels scents of Style etched on it.

In the box, you get instructions and it says to put your favorite essential oil or perfume on the amount of beads you want, and once the oil or perfume is on them, rub them between your hands then pat dry them and place them in the locket.

I used it with my Elizabeth Arden True Love Roller ball I made so I rubbed the scent onto 3 spheres, patted them with a paper towel and put them in the locket. The sent lasted all day and it smelled so pretty, it fainted by the next day.
Then, I decided to put an essential on it and I used peppermint oil because of my allergies and I wanted to breathe easily so I followed the directions then placed more beads in the locket. You can really smell the peppermint so that was good for me for deep breathing.

Now I did have a problem, because I had no clue essential oils can irritate the skin if they are not diluted or if the skin area is sensitive, After I rubbed the beads in my hand I was left with a burning sensation on my hand. I did not understand what was going on so I immediately washed it off but the sting remained. So I looked it up online and it said once you get in contact with a pure essential oil like peppermint or any other pure oil, do not wash it off with soap and water, rub your hands or the affected area with a carrier oil, like coconut, olive almond, jojoba ECT and the burn should go away.

Well, I did that a couple of times and thankfully the sting went away in time but never again will I make that mistake. So, I suggest the company put a warning label as to wear gloves when doing this or dilute the oils when using it for the spheres. The instructions it came with said to place scented beads in jar or hands but still no warning on the hazards with direct pure oils on the hands.

Other than that, the locket “Sweet Heart” is very unique and pretty and it displays really whimsical and  beautifully on the neck and I just have to handle with care next time when dealing with the oils I will be using it with, thankfully with the perfume I had no issues.

Cost: $52.00

Mía Mariú Organic "Relax" Essential Oil And Giveaway

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes

Essentials oils are making their way to my cupboard little by little now that I want to explore and experiment with them.

In my last post, I made a Peppermint Coconut Foot Scrub using the Peppermint Oil and a Perfume using the Lavender.

Since I'm new to oils, I had no clue that some already have other oils and carriers infused in them.

For instance, the oil I will be reviewing today is from Mía Mariú which has both an American and Spanish website. Therefore, Their packaging is also bilingual.

Mía Mariú also sells cosmetics and nutritional supplements but today we will focus on their oils.
They carry two oils one called "Feel Good" in Lemon and the Lavender called "Relax"which is the one they sent me.  Relax is also Relágate in Spanish so both words are on the bottle .

This 2 oz amber bottle with a medicinal dropper in the oil Lavender smells so beautiful, it's not as potent as the other Lavender I reviewed because this one is infused with Almond, Apricot, Grapeseed, Jojoba Rosehip, Macadamia, Coconut, Lavender, Sandlewood, Cedar, and Clary Sage.

The directions on the bottle says massage a few drops on the affected area whether it be for the temples of your head, your neck, shoulders Ect.
But this oil can also be used in scrubs, soaps, perfume and more, so I will definitely be exploring other ways to use it as well.

The Mía Mariú Organic "Relax" Essential Oil retails for $40.00 and can be purchased on their website at

Here's a little description of these oils and carrier oils found in "Relágate" and what they are used for:
