Aromatherapy uses essential oils, the essence of plants, for some amazing spiritual and psychological benefits for balancing, harmonizing and promoting the health of body, mind and spirit.
A great trend that has come along recently is using lava stone beads in making jewelry because is is a natural vehicle for diffusing essential oils
Lava stones are crafted from naturally-formed cooled volcanic magma. The slow cooling creates air pockets which result in small porous holes and voids throughout the rock, and this is what makes it perfect for aromatherapy. It is this porous nature that allows essential oils to soak into the rock. The scent releases slowly as the lava stone comes in contact with your warm skin, giving you lovely, uplifting whiffs of affirmations throughout your day.
