Smells Like Vicks Vap-O-Rub

Skip, feeling better about most things visual, is looking for some new projects.

What with the popularity of essential oils, he found a great kit at one of his favorite online locations, Penn State Industries, for Aromatherapy Necklaces that hold a few drops of essential oils within little vials that can be turned on the lathe.

Here is one he made for me, out of “genuine olive wood from Jerusalem”! It is beautiful, and he said it took him about 5 minutes to turn on the lathe!

The kit comes with several wicks, so you can change up the variety of essential oil whose vapors you want to go around sniffing all day.

Since I feel a little cold coming on (what would the change of season be without one, right?) I put some drops of an oil called “Breathe” in the vial. The gold coupling that is attached to the vial, and can be threaded onto the neck chain, has little stylized openings, to let the vapors waft through from the wick.

What an awesome project; I definitely feel better already!
