What exactly are lava beads?
Lava Rock Beads are cooled magma. When the hot red volcano erupts, a lot of mineral rocks are exposed to the surface of the Earth in the form of magma. When Basalt, an igneous rock that is a part of this magma, cools down, it forms a sponge like structure. This is basically what lava beads are. They are porous and colored black. Lava beads are super light in weight.
Why are some lava stone beads waxed?
Of course, when the magma cools down, you don’t get piles of perfectly round lava beads. The cooled rocks are extracted and treated to reach their final stage which varies depending on the use of the stones. Lava stone beads are famously used for jewelry and aromatherapy. For this purpose, the Basalt is shaped in a round shape since that is the most convenient. As previously mentioned, these beads are porous. To eliminate the roughness, they are waxed.
What’s the difference?
Lava beads are most commonly known for their aromatherapy. This feature us dependent on the quality of diffusion of the rock. Waxed lava beads retain their essential oils for a longer time period since wax doesn’t diffuse. However, beads that aren’t waxed will lose their oils within a few hours of exposure. Along with that, waxed beads are more comfortable to wear as jewelry.
How can lava stones be used as aromatherapy essential oil diffuser?
Essential oils have gained a lot of exposure recently. People have become more aware of the numerous benefits of these oils. One of the uses is aromatherapy in which the oils are diffused in the air.
