Our Story

From Trauma to Inner Peace

Plagued by a traumatic brain injury following a random assault, I began to find strength and power in yoga poses.

However, due to anxiety and a mind over-analyzing everything, I found myself struggling when it came to meditating.

I began collecting stones in nature to give me something to focus on at the beginning of my meditation.

Focusing on the characteristics of each stone helped me enter a meditative state much faster and commotion in my mind was silenced.  I was so relieved that I cried tears of joy after that first time!  

Inspired by the beauty of life, I began painting my stones and sharing them with others.  We were overwhelmed and touched by all of the positive responses we received.  

Knowing all too well how anxiety can try to take control, I aspired to join and assist others on the journey of self-discovery and inner peace!

This is when The Pampered Owl was born and introduced to the world!

Our mission is to spread the word about the importance of gratitude, mindfulness, and self-care to as many people as we can.


A Family Venture

The Pampered Owl is a family-run business. 

My husband, son, and I each share in the start and completion of each perfect rock.  We prep the stones, paint them, seal them, carefully wrap and ship them right from our door to yours.

We handle every aspect of the business and work hard to ensure your complete delight. 

Whether you use them for meditation, self-care, inspiration or decoration these stones will surely surprise and delight you.  We love what we do and are proud of our beautiful stones. We hope you are too! 


A Word About Basalt Lava

Lava stone is one of the oldest stones in the world.

It literally comes from the core of the earth - a fiery sulfur that bubbles to the surface and cools. Once the stone is cool, it becomes porous and black, creating the beautiful black color so many have come to love.

This is known as basalt, and can mostly be found in the ocean.

Because it was created out of destruction and chaos, it understands what it means to thrive in harsh conditions.

Allow its power to anchor you so that you may embrace major life changes with a sense of calm .

Within the world of gemstones, it is considered an effective mood stabilizer and can cleanse you of negativity.  

Sit in meditation and allow its power of fire to kindle the flames of passion in your spirit.  

It is said that if you find yourself drawn to Basalt, the stone has in fact chosen you, instead of the other way around.  

Allow its power of fire to kindle your passionate spirit and remind you to chase your dreams and avoid running from that which frightens you.

Allow it to spark your creative energy from deep within!
