Aromatherapy Jewelry With A Cause: Vented In Brooklyn

Vented in Brooklyn is an aromatherapy jewelry company with a cause. Though they typically donate a bracelet to a cancer patient with each purchase, they recently decided to pivot, in order to thank all of the healthcare heroes on Staten Island – they will each be gifted a small bottle of essential oil as well!

The bracelets are $34 and come in three tones. They are plated in real rhodium, real gold, and real rose gold. They are adjustable and fit most wrist sizes. There are 18 Power Words to choose from.

Vented in Brooklyn’s mission is to spread joy, wellness and hope with their jewelry. Their hope is to inspire a chain reaction of kindness through giving back, with the hashtag #Buy1WeDonate1.

It is very important to us here at Vented to give back, that is why when you buy a bracelet from Vented In Brooklyn® we donate a bracelet to a cancer patient or charity so that they feel loved and comforted during their treatments.

We hope to bring joy into the lives of those afflicted with this terrible disease. Thank you for being an important benefactor and joining us in giving away thousands of bracelets!

My obsession with essential oils started when I was just a little girl. I have always been amazed at how smelling a scent could instantly throw you back into a moment of time. That inhaling a scent such as peppermint could make me so happy and fill me with joy and bring me back to my youth. These “happy memories” and the use of essential oils have helped me though the saddest days of my life. Those days being the loss of my Dad, Norman and how he suffered battling Lung Cancer.

You see, my favorite thing to do with my Dad was to go to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. There were many spots we loved but my favorite was the Blind Garden. It was loaded with an array of herbs and spices of all different species. Dad would have me close my eyes and he would test my sense of smell. He would rub his fingertips across the different leaves and capture their essence on his fingertips and have me inhale them. I loved these moments of me and him and of course I loved how proud he was of me, because I remembered all the scents he taught me. Till this day, 17 years after his death, I am instantly brought back to that garden when I inhale a scent like lavender, peppermint or geranium.

Through the years my family and i have given back to different cancer patients or charities. It was when I was lost in what to do in my business life, that I asked God for help. Could he give me an idea that I could use my talents, help people feel good and most importantly help cancer patients feel better somehow. Daddy hated being in the hospital, it smelled, he was lonely, and he was nauseous from his treatments. There must be something!!??? And God answered me with a bracelet idea, a 1 for 1 company, with empowering words on the front and a place in the back where people could insert their favorite essential oil and spread joy!

I scribbled a design on a piece of paper and gave it to my brother Tim. He is my business partner and my go to prototyper. He headed to his shop and came out hours later and handed me our 1st prototype of our Vented In Brooklyn® Copper Aromatherapy Bracelet. I loved it! The amazing part was that he made it from a piece of copper from our Fathers factory that was over 35 years old! We took that prototype, and had it produced with Fair Trade artists in India.

From day 1, we decided that when anyone would buy a bracelet, we would donate a bracelet to a cancer patient or charity. The buyer feels good knowing one is donated , empowers themselves with their power word such as STRENGTH and receives the benefits of aromatherapy. The cancer patient receives a gift that they know was made possible by a stranger, empowers themselves and helps relieve nausea from the bottle of peppermint essential oil that they received as well.

We have given away 1000s of bracelets, but we are most proud of partnering with doTERRA and gifting 100 patients at Huntsman Cancer Institute. It was then we realized that we want to always work with this giving company!
