Organic Plugs & Gauges

Organic jewelry that is jewelry made out of horn, bone, wood, stone, antler and etc – are great options for plug wearers that have reached their desired size. There are so many options out there of sun flower wooden plugs and horn septum rings, but how do you take care of these kinds of organic jewelry? You can’t autoclave it or just wash it under water!

Here’s how to take care of your organic jewelry, without depreciating the quality.

The First Step

The first step to cleaning any kind of piercing jewelry is to make sure your own hands and the site itself are properly cleaned using antibacterial fragrance free soap. Otherwise you’ll be adding bacteria to the organic plugs anyway!

Wooden Plug Care

Wooden plugs are prone to drying out. So after using a gentle cloth with water to remove any debris and dust, make sure to massage the wood with jojoba oil to make sure it doesn’t crack or dry out. Drying out and cracking is a death sentence for wooden jewelry. Then with the olive oil applied shine the wood using a soft dry cloth.

Over time wood will darken and especially when applying oil often.

Do not soak wood as it will swell.

Fluorite is a mineral found primarily in South Africa, Mexico, and China. It derives its name from the Latin noun “fluo”, which means “stream”. Fluorite can have some very unique color patterns, so these handmade rainbow fluorite plugs are sure to be attention grabbing with their eye-catching shine. The larger their size, the more flash you’ll get!Rainbow Fluorite Plugs

Fluorite comes in a wide variety of colors, thereby earning itself the title “the most colorful mineral in the world”. The stone is usually purple, blue, green, yellow, or clear, but can in rarer instances features white, black, pink, red, and/or brown bands. Colors are usually banded across the stone, which means your plugs will likely be multicolored. Because of the mineral’s attractive nature, it has been used for both lapidary and ornamental intentions. Some ancient peoples, such as the Romans, used to carve designs into fluorite, creating statues and other decorative pieces. The stone has also been long used for jewelry, despite the fact that it is rather soft.

It’s important to note that because fluorite is a natural mineral, each stone is different. That means that each plug will also be different. But a discrepancy between your two jewelry pieces is what will make them even more appealing when you wear them, so don’t be afraid to experiment! They’re available in sizes 2G, 0G, 00G, 1/2", 9/16", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8", 1 Inch, 29mm, and 32mm. Double flare shaped with flat sites. These plugs are beautiful and definitely a style you want in your plug collection.

Body Jewelry Plugs By Nature

4/29/2015 10:25 AM

Organic jewelry has been on an extreme rise as of lately, and this is much due to the fact that natural things have become Wood Spiral Gaugesextremely admired for their beauty. For a while, the world was only interested in futuristic fashion trends, with metallic shine and glitter. Now, however, nature has made a comeback. All of a sudden we’ve begun to pay more attention to nature and its attractiveness, and this is very clearly reflected in the body modification industry.

Organic body jewelry plugs are not just naturally beautiful, though. It’s also really healthy for mature piercings (Be careful not to wear organic jewelry in fresh or unhealed piercings! It is unsanitary, since organic jewelry cannot be properly sterilized, and can thus lead to infections or other healing problems). The porous nature of organic material allows piercings to breathe much better than other materials do. This ventilation allows for the removal of any foul odors as well as for improved moisture of the skin in many cases.

Wood Ear GaugesAnother great perk of organic jewelry is that it’s eco-friendly. By using natural materials, you avoid burning fossil fuels for the creation of plastics and glass, as well as for the smelting of metal. Cutting out an earring from wood requires much less energy than does manufacturing that of an acrylic plug, at least on an ecological level. Thus, by using organic jewelry, you can benefit not just your piercing, but the environment, too.

Organic jewelry makes use not only of wood. Other materials used for various piercings are stone, bone, and shells. Of course, some types of organic material may be a bit heavy for piercings, especially if you’re planning to wear a humongous piece. Nevertheless, organic jewelry also offers a great variety of light materials, such as certain types of wood, which can be excellent for all types of healed piercings. So don’t fear the thing that makes the world go round! Try out some of nature’s best products for your piercings.
