Where do I find lava rocks?

qDear Dr. Standley (Where do I find lava rocks?)

My husband and I do volunteer work for the Native Americans in our prison system located in Missouri and Oklahoma. We are in need of some lava rocks for a sweat lodge and cannot seem to locate any - do you know of someone or a place we can contact. Your help is greatly appreciated.


a Dear Sue:

God Bless you and your husband for the work that you do.

You can probably find Lava Rocks (a.k.a. Grandfathers) through a search engine. You may be able to find through a garden nursery.

I never asked where they obtained the lava rocks when I've done a sweat lodge. The Cherokee's are not a tribe that is well-known for doing sweat lodges, although there are many who do. And even on the reservation where my family lives in Cherokee, NC there is only one sweat lodge on the reservation that I've heard.

There are several sweat lodges out in Sedona, Arizona and there is a possibility that one of the stores out there may have them. I'd still check a nursery.

I do know there is a push for getting some lava rocks back to Hawaii, which I find strange because we do have volcanoes here in the states. You might try somewhere in Washington State also since Mt. St. Helens erupted there.

A Bazillion Blessings~ Dr. Standley
