Welcome to Kiln Fired Diffusers, the earthy shop that makes you feel good! My kiln fired ceramic pendants (that are great as rear view mirror ornaments) and desktop decor are specifically made for the purpose to diffuse essential oils. They are waterproof, sturdy (may break or chip of course if you drop them on the hard floor, just like a flower pot would). I could say "not for children under age of 3" but it is really up to your kid's character: my niece knew how to drink from real glass at age 2 because my brother doesn't have plastic in his house (that's how we grew up in Europe) so she didn't have a choice, but on the other hand at age 6 I decided to have a bite of a thin glass at a restaurant while drinking water (imagine that panic around me!). So if you trust your child it's okay to let them wear these pieces as they are completely hypoallergenic, organic and natural. I often receive testimonials of how little children are wearing them and how well they work with their allergies, cold and other issues they may have. It is really the essential oils that work that well, I only provide the carrier medium. After applying 1-2 drops of oil onto the surface of the clay it absorbs it within 30 seconds and gives off the scent for 24-48 hours.
There are many reasons why people prefer to wear these diffusers instead of applying the oils directly on their skin. But the two main reasons are: you don't need to dilute the oils with carrier oils, just use a couple of drops onto the clay surface, no fuss! And the other reason: they are pretty! I make various designs, at this point there are hundreds of different designs of necklaces, bracelets and car hangings to choose from for boys, girls, ladies and gentlemen. If it's too overwhelming for you or have any questions about my diffusers please let me know, I am always here to give you the best advice I possibly can.
I am proud of my heritage as well as the quality of my hand crafted items. I grew up in the socialist Budapest in the 70's, the capital of Hungary in the heart of Europe, raised by strict but very loving parents. I was always a crafty girl and attracted to art and of course I did create things but nothing spectacular. When my family said I did great it was enough for me, I was satisfied. Surrounded by museums, some hundred and thousand year old buildings, objects and history, having sculptor, ceramic artist, painter, architect, restorer friends was the most natural thing ever, I was balanced and happy, had nothing missing. Moving to Florida in 2006 has changed this. Although I didn't quite know for a long time what exactly the problem was? The sun was shining, birds were chirping, the lovely hot weather and the beauty of Siesta Beach occupied my attention. People were kind, appreciative, helpful. What else would one want? Right? But whenever I wanted to buy gifts for my friends, I found almost nothing with a history behind it - I felt like a piece of my heart was torn out, I felt so disappointed. So I taught myself how to work with ceramic clay. Perhaps in the beginning my gifts didn't turn out perfect but were highly appreciated. Slowly I realized that I was hooked by the clay, I needed to know more building and glazing techniques. And now not only my friends but strangers are buying from me to surprise their friends and family. My favorite styles are both rustic and modern colorful - it took me a while to figure out how to use both in one creation but I found it and became balanced and happy again.
