LAVA ROCK is one of the oldest stones on the planet and literally comes from the CORE of the EARTH. Lava stones are formed from the fiery bubbles bursting out of volcanoes. Once the lava dries, it turns into a beautiful stone.
But a lava stone isn’t just a stone. Like the fire bursting strength of a volcano, these little black porous balls of hardened lava, hold many powerful energy and healing benefits. That is why masseuses' use lava stone to bring relaxation, emotional tranquility and a sense of calmness to their clients.
Emotional - Since lava is known for its grounding qualities, it’s wonderful for calming your emotions. In fact, the quality of fire springs from the ground, so in terms of healing gems, this lends itself to a calming- but intense - energy. Because it comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. Lava stone has been know to greatly help people who suffer from anxiety for this reason.
Spiritual - Lava stones are fantastic for stabilising and grounding the root chakra. This is because of the strong connection to the earth and its creation within the center of Earth. In folk remedies, it was also given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle.
Lava stone is best worn close to the skin, if not directly on the skin. This is because the barrier for absorption is not blocked by anything and this gives access for the energy to flow clearly and keep things energetically balanced.
