Frequently Asked Questions
This varies depending on the essential oil that you use, but the aroma on your lava stone can last anywhere from a couple hours up to a full day! Allowing the oils to soak in after rubbing them on will give you the best results. Some oils omit a strong aroma, whereas others do not - we recommend a citrus and/or peppermint oil for a long lasting and invigorating aroma!
We work closely with our manufacturers to ensure that you are provided with high quality, natural lava stones. We don’t use popular synthetic or dyed beads. Call us crazy but we’re just not into heavily processed or waxy stones. Each piece is unique and has naturally formed voids. The color of our lava stones will naturally vary from charcoal to nearly black and may slightly lighten or darken with use of essential oils.
Though they may look heavy, they are extremely lightweight! Since nature seldom repeats itself, and due to the handcrafted detail of each bead, please expect some variation. Our stones are sourced from several suppliers located in the US and East Asia.
Our rule - Last on, First off! Please only apply essential oils to the lava beads. If you happen to get any on your chain or elsewhere we recommend wiping it clean. Avoid wearing your jewelry while showering, sleeping, swimming, and exercising. Minimize your jewelry's exposure to any chemicals, such as: lotions, oil blends, hairspray, etc. We also recommend storing your jewelry in a dry environment to avoid oxidation. Nothing too crazy!
"Inhalation of the oil, or the aroma from the oil, can be a powerful way to affect memory, hormones, and emotions through the olfactory system. Inhalation of oils can also be a quick and effective way to affect the sinuses, larynx, bronchial tubes, and lungs." - The Modern Essentials
In other words - there’s a lot of benefits. Welcome to the club.
OLANI is not responsible for the type of essential oils you use or for how you use them. We recommend avoiding essential oils that contain carrier oils. Carrier oils tend to stain clothing so it is best to make sure that you are using pure essential oils with our diffuser. Plus, lava doesn’t even absorb carrier oils! We do, however, recommend 100% Pure Therapeutic Oils as they do not stain clothes and will deliver the most beneficial aromatic experience! It’s a win-win for everybody. 1-2 drops is all you need.
