There’s something so rewarding about unveiling a new collection, probably because there’s so much work that goes into launching a new line of products. And that was definitely the case with our newest collection, Lava Mala. In my travels over the past few years, I had come across a number of diffuser jewelry brands and options on the market, and I loved the idea of creating a line of aromatherapy intention jewelry for Mala and Mantra—especially because I knew I could do it with the highest-quality materials and a beautiful design. The only issue? I wanted to include an aromatherapy oil with the bracelet (rather than making our customers go out and buy one on their own), but I didn’t know the first thing about making or producing essential oils.
That’s where our good friends at Body Bliss come in. We partnered with the leading aromatherapy oil maker to select six essential oil blends that would match each of the handcrafted bracelets in our Lava Mala collection. I’m absolutely thrilled with the results, and I think you will be, too! Each blend perfectly harmonizes with the holistic properties + energies of the six semi-precious gemstones we use in this collection (more on those below!). And since it’s all packaged together in a Mala and Mantra logo box, it makes a perfect present for the holidays (even if that present is just for yourself!).
How it works
Black Lava Stone is a strengthening and calming stone made of porous volcanic rock, which allows it to easily diffuse aromatherapy. Apply one drop of the essential oil blend directly to each of the lava rock beads, which will absorb the oil and diffuse a healing aromatherapy scent for up to 24 hours.
