Shopping local is my JAMMM! I truly get a thrill knowing that I am supporting local business owners just like myself, and I am helping put food on a table for a family in need. Anyone else with me?


We all have our own niche whether that be photography, makeup, athletics, blogging, or hey, even handmade jewelry! Whatever it may be, you can count on me to be your number one supporter!

These lava rock bracelets from @desertblondiedesigns are seriously one of a kind!! Meghan Smith started her very own Etsy shop in 2017 and has since been creating and selling unique bracelets made with custom wood beads and lava rock. Each design is unique and can also be customized to your liking.

My personal favorite is the Build your own Lava Rock & Wood Bracelet.

“The Lava Rock bracelet is amazing for diffusing your favorite oils all day with you and it also has great healing. Lava Rock is a grounding stone that strengthens one's connection to Mother Earth. It gives us strength and courage, allowing us stability through times of change. It provides guidance and understanding in situations where we may need to "bounce back". A calming stone, it is very useful in dissipating anger. It promotes positive changes where needed in behavioral issues. Lava Stone also enhances fertility.” -Meghan

You chose your lava rock bead color and then choose your wood bead color, as well as if you would prefer silver or gold spacers. 100% customizable! I love it!! You are also give the option to add an accent design.

LAVA ROCK 101

INFUSE YOUR LAVA ROCK with your ESSENTIAL OIL.
Gently apply 1-2 drops or roll-on your favorite essential oil onto the lava rock to infuse them with your scent.

2. WEAR Your Bracelet
Because of the porous nature of lava rock the beads easily soak in the oil and your body heat aids in gently diffusing the scent to create your personal wearable aromatherapy diffuser.

3. AHHH..... 
Enjoy the aromatherapy experience for up to 3-5 days depending on the concentration of oil that you applied to the lava rock. Re-apply oils onto the lava beads as desired.



So tell me - what's your favorite local gem? I'd love to hear from you & continue shopping local and supporting mom & pops.
