The Tree of Life Memorial Locket

Honoring A Beloved Pet

Honoring a loved one can help you to cope with loss in your own way—learn how our Tree of Life Memorial Locket helps pawrents to mourn in peace.

The effects of loss are something that can be very difficult to cope with. When we bond with someone, losing them is hard, and we don’t always know how to feel about it. For years, pet owners have looked for helpful ways to mourn their lost friends, but it hasn’t always been easy. There have not been that many options throughout the years, much to the dismay of pet parents trying to cope with loss. Now, more pawrents are turning to keepsake jewelry in hopes of preserving the memories of their furbabies.

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

We know that losing a pet is an impossibly difficult situation. Many pawrents have raised their furbabies from a very young age, but we all know that the pets that come to us later in life can work their way into our hearts just the same. Following the loss of several of Willow and Dilla’s friends, we decided to create solutions to help dog parents cope. Our Tree of Life Locket has been favored by pawrents this season, and we wanted to share more about it with you.

Introducing the Tree of Life Memorial Locket

The Tree of Life Memorial Locket is a small, beautifully designed to provide you with a way to keep your fur children with you, even after their passing. We know that nothing can ever replace your baby, but many pawrents are learning that there is power in cherishing their memory. With this locket, you can keep your pup’s ashes safe, whether you wear them around your neck or keep them somewhere tucked away at home.

A Cherished Place for Ashes

Cherish their memory.

The first and most prominent feature of this locket is the ability to hold a pet’s ashes. Every single memorial locket can hold a small amount of ashes—or even fur—so you can always carry a piece of your fur baby with you, no matter where you go.

This locket is designed to provide a safe space for the remains of a beloved friend or relative, particularly of the furry variety. Inside, you will find that adding a little touch from your dog is a fairly simple process that makes it easy to handle coping on your own terms. Many pawrents are comforted by this little token of their loved ones, and it allows you to pay tribute to their lasting memory. Think of this as a personal and discreet way to keep them with you.

A Loving Aromatherapy Necklace

In addition to offering a space for your pet, the Tree of Life Memorial Locket also offers a double opportunity to embrace aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is a wonderful tool for comfort and relaxation, which is why we have added support for pads and your favorite essential oils. This pendant doubles as an essential oil necklace, giving you the power to enjoy essential oils on the go.

Applying essential oils and patches to your necklace is a very simple process, making it easy for you to pick and choose which oils you want to work with on any given day. Replacing or changing the oils is quick and easy, so you don’t have to feel stuck with the oil that you choose. Simply pick an oil based on your preferences or medical needs, and go from there. This can add a completely new healing touch to your memorial locket, all while allowing you to carry a bit of your treasured doggo with you.

Though this locket was made as a bereavement gift, it does offer some versatility. The Tree of Life is a beautiful concept that has been around for some time, and the necklace can absolutely be used entirely for aromatherapy purposes. You can opt to simply wear this for its mental health benefits, and it is casual enough to use for daily wear. Just remember to find oils that work for you. How you use the necklace is up to you, but this functional accessory was made to allow every wearer to get exactly what they want out of it.

The Tree of Life—and What it Means

The Tree of Life is a symbol that has been around for a variety of cultures throughout humanity’s reign, and it is easy to see why it maintains such prominence. So, what does the Tree of Life charm mean?

Though it is a beautiful symbol all on its own, the concepts behind the Tree of Life are believed to be even more beautiful than you might expect.

There are a few shared sentiments behind the Tree of Life that we believe pawrents will appreciate. First, there is the idea that we are all connected—that all life in all places is joined together in some way. We can feel this in the unspoken bonds that we share with our doggos and the ways that humans and pets come together to create a stronger family unit.

Then, there is a focus on the passage of time and ancestry. It shows how our families have roots that connect us across generations—and the ways that these bonds can grow. Some roots grow when a baby is born, while others are present when a new doggo finds a loving home. Together, we go stronger over time.

Finally, there is the actual cycle of life. It is so difficult to lose a loved one, but it is not necessarily the end. The Tree of Life reminds us that life begins anew, sometimes in different ways—but it always moves forward. This sentiment is so comforting when we ask ourselves why we had to lose them so soon.

Bereavement Gifts: What You Need to Know

Losing a loved one can feel impossible to cope with, and there is no clear guide on how to do it with style or grace. Our hearts have broken seeing some of our most beloved furry friends pass on to that big game of fetch in the sky, and we know that it doesn’t get any easier. Bereavement gifts are a coping tool that is becoming more popular, and we think that they can offer a lot to a healing journey.

How Bereavement Gifts Help Us to Celebrate a Loved One

How many ways can I show I love you?

Loss can be a big pill to swallow, particularly if you just spent over a decade filling your heart with love for the one that you lost. Our pets are valuable members of the family, and when we lose them, it can be as difficult as any other kind of loss. A lost pet is not just a lost pet—but rather a lost friend, child, sibling, and confidant. It is natural to want to keep a piece of your doggo with you, even as the years pass.

Bereavement gifts are designed to provide each of us with a way to mourn and keep a part of a loved one with us at all times. These beautiful gifts allow us to celebrate the loved ones, paying tribute to them in some way. Whether you buy a necklace to wear, or you opt for a small urn, you will find that these gifts give you a way to spotlight the individual, no matter how many decades pass.

In many ways, these gifts are a symbol of the individual and the love that we felt for them. It is a way of showing that even though they are gone, they will always be with us. We might not hear the clicking of claws on the kitchen floor or a bark when there is a squirrel in the yard, but with these gifts, we can always look over and remember them in some way. It is a lasting reminder of the impact that they have on our lives.

What to Expect with Memorial Gifts

Goodbye is not forever it is not the end.

Memorial gifts come in all shapes and sizes, but they are generally focused on the memory of the individual. A memorial gift might be a necklace that can hold ashes, but that isn’t the only option. Designer urns, memorial shadow boxes, and other beautiful symbols are available. The common goal is simply to help you to remember your loved one in some way.

Who Are They Right For?

Memorial gifts are an investment that can be made for anyone. People all around the world choose memorial gifts to keep their loved ones close following a loss. They can be purchased by pawrents themselves, but they can also double as a nice gift.

Giving someone a keepsake gift allows you to show them that you are there for them—and thinking about them. It is a lovely gesture that can help the people that we know are suffering from loss find some peace, which is why so many people are beginning to choose them as gifts. Whether you buy one for yourself or a loved one, they can help with the healing journey.

Essential Oils and Healing

Our decision to include support for essential oils with the Tree of Life Memorial Locket is not one that was made at random. Aromatherapy is a healing practice that can have a wonderful impact on those who embrace it, and we are always looking for opportunities to bring more good into the world. Healing takes time and energy, but there are certain tools that we can use to help along the way.

The use of essential oils for healing is an ancient practice that goes back well before we ever decided to make this necklace. It is an opportunity to explore the healing impacts of certain scents from nature, and there are a lot of people who use essential oils on a regular basis to improve their lives. Being aware of just how useful essential oils can be for healing is a game-changing discovery for so many of us.

Calm and Comfort for Pawrents

The best things in life are the memories we've made along the way.

We simply cannot say it enough: losing a fur child isn’t easy. Eventually, pawrents have to come to terms with the fact that our pups just do not have our lifespan, and at some point, they have to leave us behind. This is an incredibly painful process, and it can bring a lot of stress.

Grief is complicated, and most people rely on external tools to manage it. Whether it is attending therapy to discuss your loss or spending more time with the people that support you, we all need a set strategy to cope with a significant loss. For pawrents, few losses are more significant—and the average pawrent can face this loss time and time again throughout their lives.

Essential oils can be used to bring a touch of peace to your day. There are oils that can calm and relax you, making it easier for you to cope with the pain. Of course, there are also oils that can elevate your mood and help you to focus on the beautiful memories that you shared with your pet instead of forcing you to dwell on the pain or sorrow. Using essential oils won’t make everything better, but for a lot of us, it really can help.

Appealing to the Senses

Though essential oils can certainly help you to cope with your grief some days, that isn’t their only use. In reality, essential oils can be beneficial in a variety of circumstances depending on the oils that you choose. You might find yourself using essential oils to wake up in the morning or to help you sleep at night. Certain oils can help us to invigorate our senses or even cope with a bad day at work. The ways that you use these essential oils might change with time, but it helps to be able to keep them nearby.
