Mala - Black Lava Rock


This beautiful mala is hand strung and knotted with rounded black porous Lava Rocks. Lava Rocks are one of the earths most abundant stone as it comes from the center of the earth as a fiery substance that bubbles to the surface and cools. Once the stone is cool, it becomes porous and black. Because of its nature Lava Stone is a grounding stone that strengthens one's connection to Mother Earth. Known to give strength and courage, allowing us stability through times of change. It can also be considered a calming stone, as it pulls anger out and away from the source. It promotes positive changes where needed in behavioral issues. Great for using essential oils, simply drop a few of your favorite oils directly on a few beads and rub in. This will carry the scent and aromatherapy with you throughout your day.

Each beautiful one of kind Mala necklace is completely unique and made with love. Every bead is hand strung and knotted 108 times. Mala's are traditionally used during yoga or meditation to be counted to help focus on reciting mantras. The number 108 is a spiritually significant number.  Why 108 beads? There are lots of beliefs as to why Mala necklaces are strung with 108 beads and why that number is significant. There are believed to be 108 Indian goddess names, 108 lines of energy going to the heart chakra. Or that there are 108 feelings, 36 related to the past, 36 related to the present, and the 36 related to the future. 

Each mala necklace is adorned with an Often Wander tag, which will hopefully inspire you to set an intention with your mala and wear it carrying that intention with you.
