AQ LAVA STONE MINI PENDANTS
Aromatherapy Jewellery is the perfect way to use a jewellery piece as your own personal essential oil (or perfume) diffuser, and while larger sized aroma jewellery has been around for a while, there are now a number of smaller sized pieces available which are suitable for both adults and children.
Our LAVA STONE MINI range are a gorgeous little size, using a small natural lava stone bead to which you add your essential oils, oil blend or favourite perfume - we also include a small pipette to allow you to add your oils with precision if needed. When worn, the warmth of your body gently heats the oils on the bead and allows them to diffuse through the open holes and into the air around you. Our Lava Stone range use naturally porous volcanic stone beads to absorb the oils - two are included with each purchase, with additional replacement beads also available.
Supplied in a gift bag, these make a wonderful little gift even for those unfamiliar with aromatherapy - and are the perfect accompaniment for our OILS 4 KIDS Oil Blends. 1ml plastic pipette, 2 x 8mm lava stone beads, and tips card included.

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 beads to use the piece as a long-lasting personal aromatherapy diffuser. Our Lava Stone Mini Pendants feature a choice of designs and finishes with a hinged compartment, which opens up like a locket to reveal a natural lava stone bead (remove the chain or cord to access the bead). Add your oils directly to the bead (see below for instructions - use the included pipette for precision if required), allow to absorb for a few moments and then wipe it dry with a tissue to ensure no oil gets in contact with your skin. Enclose the bead back into your pendant, and as you wear it the warmth of your body will gently heat the pendant to diffuse the oils into the air around you through the filigree holes.
Each pendant comes with a free chain (see note above) and spare bead (see below). Presented in a gift bag, they make the perfect small gift or stocking filler. An excellent size for use with children and adults alike.
LAVA BEADS & REPLACEMENTS
Each pendant comes with one 6mm lava bead inside the locket, as well as one spare lava bead, making it easy for you to switch to a fresh scent while your other bead is still scented with another oil. Replacement 6mm beads are also available separately - CLICK HERE.
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 a Lava Stone bead, and allow it to soak in for a little while before using. If it's a particularly strong or sensitising oil, or it's being used by children, make sure you wipe the surface dry to help avoid it coming into contact with your skin as some oils can cause sensitivity 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 - use the included pipette to help apply your oils as required.
DISCLAIMER: Please remember to check for skin sensitivities before using essential oils against your skin - some oils are more sensitising than others. Ultimately it's up to you how much oil you add to your Lava Stone jewellery, however if you experience sensitivity from any oil, we'd suggest you discontinue use or try using less oil on the Lava Stone. NEVER allow children or pets to chew or suck on the beads as most essential oils are toxic when ingested.
HINTS & TIPS
* Avoid dripping oils directly onto metal parts of any aromatherapy jewellery as this may eventually corrode the metal.
* Do not allow oils to come into direct contact with the skin or clothes as they may cause skin sensitivity, or stain fabrics.
* You don't need to put too much oil onto your Lava Stone beads - essential oils are very strong so you don't need to use too much oil.
* Keep out of reach of children and NEVER allow children or pets to chew or suck on the beads as most essential oils are toxic when ingested.
Natural essential oils do dissipate reasonably quickly - this is one of the great things about them, that they don't hang around and leave a 'stale' aroma as synthetic fragrances often do. To help your oils last a little longer try using a blend containing base note oils (eg vetiver, patchouli, frankincense, jasmine etc), which tend to last longer - this will make the top and middle note oils last longer as well. Most simple aromatherapy books will list the 'note' categories that common oils fall into.
You can use these for your favourite scented oil as a perfume, or you can use your imagination and use therapeutic oil/s to cover anything from concentration at work or uni, to calming oils or even oils with anti-viral or anti-nausea benefits, making this your own personal portable oil diffuser. Use up to four different oils to create your own unique blend, or use one of our PURE ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDS to take the guesswork out of which oils to choose.
