Untreated Lava Stone (Basalt) beads are wonderful to hold essential oils. This is pretty popular now. However, did you know the lava has another powerful meaning that can be especially helpful in the chaos of our world? Basalt was formed out of intense fire and chaos (volcanoes). It had to solidify under intense heat and pressure. Sound familiar? This stone can act as a guide for us to find our way through the chaos of life including times of intense pressure and change. Enjoy the oils but remember how these basalt stones came to be, and you might not think you have it so bad!
