Lava is a rock formed from magma erupted from a volcano. Naturally porous and lightweight, the stones can carry essential oils like a diffuser. Lava stones may be a rusty red or a rich black in color. Lava stones can be used for grounding, protection and making a connection to the earth. They allow us to "root" scattered energy, find focus, and bring balance to our centers by embracing practicality. Lava stones are used to balance the Root Chakra.
