Lava will help in letting go of all emotions that are holding you back to begin a new chapter in life. Wearing lava stone will bring courage to pursue the deepest desires whether it is to become a magician, or ask the person of their dreams out on date. You can place lava in a room to balance out the energies and clear negative emotion. Great for counselors, therapists, and doctors. 

When lava stones cool, they have a vesicular texture making them porous by nature. Being porous, they have holes in them that can absorb liquid making them perfect for use as essential oil diffusers. All you do is add a couple drops, or use an oil roll on and reap the benefits of added aroma therapy. Lava stone is typically recommended to be worn close to the skin in forms of bracelet or mala to allow for energy to flow better, and make the essential oil diffusion more effective.
