Soothe your senses by staring into a mesmorizing lava lamp.
Studies have shown that lava lamps not only reduce stress, but
spark creativity. Here you can learn how to take care of your lava
lamp so it has a long life, or read about the history behind
this pop culture symbol. There is also a section which pays tribute to
specialty lava lamps that are no longer for sale, such as the Enchantress
Planter Lava Lite Lamp (you could grow flowers around it) and the
Continental Lava Lite Lamp (cordless and non-electric so you
could take it anywhere).
