Lave Stone is formed from molten lava that solidifies under intense heat and pressure. Little pockets of gas bubbles get trapped within the stone and create the holes in its porous surface. Lava Stone has a deep connection to the Earth, as well as the element fire. It's Earth energy is said to strengthen our connection to Mother Earth, while its Fire energy helps guide us in our spiritual transformation. It is a highly effective grounding stone that provides strength and courage during our most tumultuous times. Lava stone keeps us mentally stable while it guides us to a place of understanding enabling us to bounce back from any circumstance we have encountered. It assists us by dissipating anger and fostering positive change in areas where we need it most.
The porous surface and absorbent properties make Lava Stone excellent for diffusing your favorite essential oils. Just use a drop or two of your favorite oils and rub them on the beads. The easiest way is to add the oil on your finger first and then rub it on the beads. You can rub the remaining residue on your hands and inhale for extra benefit. A drop or two might last 2-4 hours, if you use more oil it can sometimes last up to 24 hours.
