Step aside, mala bead bracelets: Lava diffuser jewelry is the next big thing. The dark, porous beads made from lava stone have become a bit of a fashion trend over the last few years, but the benefits don’t stop at adding a little dimension to your bracelet stack. Lava diffuser jewelry holds unique healing properties that can support your wellness journey. Tiny Zen Jewelry, a Canadian-based company offering a wide range of healing jewelry including lava diffuser bracelets, shared with us the three healing properties that we can use to bring positive change to our lives.
Lava stone is one of the oldest and most frequently found stones around the world and its origin plays a key role in the stone’s healing properties. As its name would suggest, the stone comes from the core of the earth. Because this stone comes from such a raw energy (fire), it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth. Known for its grounding and calming healing properties, lava stone is great for stabilizing the root chakra. When the root chakra is stabilized, you feel safe, anchored and more positive.
The essential oils used in lava jewelry have healing properties as well. Essential oils have been used for centuries for medicinal and health purposes. They are derived from flowers, leaves, roots and peels, and contain high concentrations of healing compounds that are found in the plant they are taken from.
The two essential oils that are most frequently used for diffuser jewelry are lemon and lavender. These are used to help with common emotional struggles such as anxiety, emotional distress and low energy levels. Lemon essential oil is uplifting and provides positive and energizing healing properties. Lavender is well-known for its stress releasing healing properties. It can reduce anxiety and also help with sleep.
Some people use lava jewelry with lavender essential as a sleep aid. They place the jewelry under their pillow before they go to sleep to help them fall asleep more quickly and not wake up as frequently throughout the night.
Natural gemstone beads are the final healing element of lava diffuser jewelry. While there are many gem options, the gemstone choices that help create a well-rounded healing piece with lava stone and essential oils are amazonite and howlite.
Howlite is a calming stone and aids in healing stress and stress related injuries. You may be familiar with an overactive mind full of internal chatter. Well, howlite helps calm that brain chatter, which then aids in reducing stress and insomnia. When the mind is calm, the body is calm.
Amazontie is commonly used for energy healing and chakra balancing. It can bring yin and yang into balance and soothes negative emotions.
Both of these gemstones work in harmony with lavender and lemon essential oils to aid with some of the most common struggles we face today such as anxiety, stress, insomnia and feeling overwhelmed.
