Lava beads are made from solidified molten volcanic rock, also known as lava. Lava can reach temperatures of over 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit before cooling into this porous natural stone. The porosity of Lava beads lends itself well to absorbing and gently diffusing essential oils for use in aromatherapy. In the metaphysical community, lava beads symbolize rebirth and renewal. Lava beads are also believed to hold healing properties that encourage resilience and strength during life transitions and important milestones.
