Q: What is "bisque" or "bisqueware"?

A: Let's first start with "greenware". It is simply air-dried clay. An unfired clay form that can be destroyed by water.

Once the greenware has been fired it is called "bisqueware", fired ware that resists MOST water, but is beyond the point of being able to be destroyed by normal means. At this point it may be decorated with paint, such as acrylics, colored with a permanent marker, decoupaged, etc.

Bisqueware is also the point where most potters will apply glaze. "Glaze Ware" (or finished ware) are ceramic forms that have been bisque fired, and then glazed (creates a shiny surface as well as adds protection to the piece), the forms are fired one last time after a glaze is applied, this causes the glaze to adhere and usually pushes the piece to full vitrification (accepts NO water).

Q: What is a terra cotta diffuser?

A: A terra cotta diffuser is a piece of porous clay used as the means to disperse essential oil into the air. When a drop of essential oil is dripped onto the surface of the terra cotta, it is absorbed into the tiny pores of the clay. The oil then slowly evaporates (diffuses) putting the scent into the air.

One drop is usually all that is needed at a time and it will last a few days, as this small amount will saturate into the piece. Once the terra cotta diffuser no longer gives off the desired scent, refresh the scent by adding another drop of oil to the surface of the clay. For the strongest scent, and greatest therapeutic benefit, add one drop a day.

If you want to change the oil that is on the diffuser, wait until most of the original scent has evaporated away (usually 2 or 3 days) then apply the next one. Some scents blend nicely with each other so that applying a second oil on top of the first will work fine.

It is best to restrict the oils to singles or blends without carrier oils. Carrier oils will not evaporate rapidly, may give the terra cotta an oily stained look, and may clog the pores of the clay.

When applying the essential oil to your terra cotta pendant, ornament, or other piece lay it down flat on a table and drip one drop onto the top (front) of the clay. Make sure the oil is fully absorbed into the terra cotta prior to use. As long as the oil is completely absorbed it will not stain clothing when worn.

To use the terra cotta diffuser for medicinal reasons, apply the essential oils to the back of the terra cotta pendant and wear against your skin. **Always check for skin sensitivity or allergic reactions first. If this occurs, discontinue use and consult your doctor.**
