Caring for Organic Wood Jewelry

Organic plugs, including wooden plugs, can be gorgeous additions to your body! But without proper aftercare your beautiful wooden plugs could turn out dry, brittle and cracked. No one wants that! Let your wooden plugs last forever and keep them looking brand new by following the three simple steps to wooden plug aftercare.

Avoid water at all costs.

Whether it’s an ocean, lake, jucuzi, pool, bath or even a shower always remember to take your wooden plugs or body jewelry out first!

If you are forgetful, it might be best to stick to water proof jewelry for everyday wear and opt to wear your wooden plugs and other wooden body jewelry on special events only.

The reason to avoid water is because wood acts like a sponge and will absorb it. This causes the plug to expand. Eventually, when the plug is no longer wet, this water will evaporate. When this water evaporates it will lead to your wooden plug cracking and drying out.

5 Benefits of Wearing Organic Plugs

What are Organic Plugs?

Organic plugs are plugs made from the naturally occurring and once living materials of wood, bone, and horn. These materials are harvested and worked into beautiful pieces of jewelry. For reference, non organic plugs are man made materials like acrylic, metal, and silicone—not plugs with GMOs.

The Benefits of Wearing Organic

Plugs There are different benefits for every material, but organic plugs have some important qualities that put them as a frontrunner for everyday wear in healed lobes.

The top 5 benefits of organic plugs are that they are:

  • Non-irritating
  • Lightweight
  • Odor reducing
  • Safe for x-rays, MRIs, and various other medical procedures
  • Fashionable/customizable

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.

 The porous nature of organic material allows piercings to breathe much better than other materials do. 

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.

Wooden plugs are a great material to wear in your healed stretched lobes. The wood also soaks up the oils your lobes produce which helps limit the odor stretched ears give off. These Sono Wooden Offset Tunnel Plugs have a smaller hole then the normal tunnels you might be used to. Each plug is sold as a set, so you only need to order a quantity of 1. Double flared shaped will keep these plugs tight in your lobes without the use of "O" rings. Sizes / gauges range from 2g, 0g, 00g, 9/16", 5/8", 3/4", and 1inch.

Wooden plugs are awesome because they don't hold that "odor" stench most jewelry plugs have. The reason for this is because wood plugs soak up the oils your stretched ears produce thus making them smell less. Of course you still need to wash your lobes, but you wont have to worry about them still smelling later in the day. The Ebony wooden carved plugs pictures below are available in sizes / gauges 1inch, 1&1/8, 1&1/4", 1 &3/8", 1&1/2", 1&5/8", 1&3/4", 1&7/8", and 2 inches!. These are sold in pairs and start at $37. Hand crafted to perfection.
