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 holes in its porous surface. Lava Stone has a deep 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. 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.
