Aromatherapy Jewellery - LAVA STONE NECKLACE
Aromatherapy Jewellery is the perfect way to use a jewellery piece as your own personal essential oil (or perfume) diffuser. The method is simple: essential oils are added to an absorbent pad or bead (depending on the jewellery type), and when worn the warmth of your body gently heats the oils and allows them to diffuse into the air around you. Our Lava Stone pendants use naturally porous volcanic stone beads to absorb the oils and make a wonderful and unique gift even for those unfamiliar with aromatherapy.
Lava Stone Necklace has a stunning, unusual design - a curved arc of eight natural lava stone beads, with vintage silver tone spacer between each, set on a simple alloy chain approx 47 - 48cm in length (plus a short extender). Simple gift bag included.
JEWELLERY PIECE: Lava Stone Design Necklace, Vintage Silver Finish
CHAIN: Silver tone alloy chain Included, approx 47-48cm length plus short extender.
SCENT BEAD: Natural Lava Stone Beads x 8, each approx 7mm diameter
WHAT IS LAVA STONE AND HOW CAN IT BE USED WITH AROMATHERAPY?
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 your oils to soak into the rock, and allows the scent to last while diffusing the scent using the warmth of your skin. Lava Stone is a very study rock and should last for many years of Aromatherapy use without corroding or dissolving.
Being from deep within the Earth's core, Lava Stone is said to be used for grounding protection, allowing us to make a 'root' connection with the Earth to find focus as well as to stabilise, balance and calm emotion.
Natural Lava Stone Aromatherapy Jewellery can be worn as-is for it's look or reputed grounding benefits, or add a drop or two of essential oil to the porous bead to use the piece as a long-lasting personal aromatherapy diffuser. Add your oils directly to the bead (see below for instructions - as the bead will sit directly against your skin to take care not to use strong or sensitising oils), and as you wear it the warmth of your body will gently heat the pendant to diffuse the oils into the air around you.
HOW DO I USE MY LAVA STONE?
We find the best approach is to add just a drop or two of essential oil directly to the surface of the Lava Stone bead, and allow it to soak in for a little while before using - do not douse the bead, and make sure you wipe the surface dry to help avoid any pure oils from coming into contact with your skin as some oils can cause sensitivities when directly applied. Using Lava Stones to diffuse your oils can dramatically extend the scent life of your oils as the stones can hold the scent for an extended period - up to several days with some oils, before the scent naturally dissipates. Top up with additional oils as needed.
