BALTIC AMBER



Our very popular Baltic Amber is a fossilized tree resin that is used similarly to any other crystal, mineral or stone in jewellery creations.  Its hardness ranges from 2 to 2.5. 

When amber is worn against the skin, the nugget or bead is naturally warmed by our body and the bead releases small amounts of healing oils (succinic acid). The oils are absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream and boost the immune system, reduce inflammation and are an analgesic used for pain. Baltic Amber also assists with varicose vein and increases blood circulation.

Baltic Amber is well known for its healing energies and is ideal for teething toddlers.  Did you know that in ancient times, Baltic Amber was worn by children for their protection.

Metaphysically, Baltic Amber is associated with desire, sensuality and romantic tenderness.   It is said that it was used to find lasting love. 

Amber is also used to cleanse and purify areas and can simply be placed in a room or made into an elixir. 

Amber reactivates the second Chakra and is used to cleanse all chakras.

LAVA ESSENTIAL OIL PENDANT



This simple yet elegant necklace was created to allow essential oils to be added to the Lava stone which acts as a wick. Just as with stone energy, essential oils have wonderful effects on our bodies, minds and emotions. You can add a different essential oil each day depending on your needs and likes. 

Essential oils are highly concentrated and as a result a drop of two on the Lava Stone is all that is required.

A perfect example of essential oil to use with a pendant would be for nasal congestion as a result of allergies at this time of year. Combine Cedar, peppermint, grapefruit and lemon (my favorite for sinus congestion) and add a couple of drops to your Lava Stone. 


You can combine oils or use just one for effects of peace, calm, energy, sleep, and the list goes on. The more you get to know the oils and how you react to them, the more experimental you can be with your combinations.  

Lava or Lava stone is also known as Volcanic rock or Basalt and has a hardness of 3 to 3.5. 


Lava stone energy is known to bring strength and courage to those that wear it. It is said that the energies of Lava help to curb our anger. Like most black stones, it is grounding and offers protection. Lava is also a high energy stone and is considered to help raise libido.

Lava is a powerful stone for those born under the element of Fire in Astrology. It is also beneficial for those that lack fire and are timid or lack drive.
