5 Ways to Use a Himalayan Salt Stone to Feel Good Right Now

Stay grounded and connect with your body through Himalayan salt stone self-care.

  1. For self-massage:
    Himalayan salt stones are a great tool to help create proper tension relief. They resonate at the same frequency as the earth which counters the artificial wavelengths put off by the electronics in our life and promotes greater health and overall rebalancing. Hold a salt stone in your hand as you relax and watch television or to take a break from your smartphone.
  2. To remineralize skin:
    After a shower, use a wet Himalayan salt stone to replenish mineral deficiencies that our bodies lack. A simple glide over the skin helps you absorb 84 naturally occurring minerals and salts found in the Himalayan salt stone. Use water to wet the stone or try jojoba or coconut oil.
  3. For grounding and to neutralize bacteria:
    Carry a salt stone in your pocket or purse to neutralize bacteria as Himalayan salt is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial.  
  4. As a deodorant:
    A natural alternative to chemical-based, traditional deodorants and antiperspirants, Himalayan salt stones provide a protective barrier against odor-causing bacteria. Simply wet the stone and apply to desired areas thoroughly. Dry stone when finished.
  5. For instant warming or cooling sensations:
    Himalayan salt stones are versatile in their abilities to be heated or cooled, depending on your need. Warmed stones soothe your body, while cooled stones provide relief for aches and pains. Simply freeze the stone in your home freezer or heat the stone, in an oven (200 degrees), place stone on a small baking sheet, or warm in a pan over a burner.*

*Caution: Himalayan salt stones will heat quickly on a burner. When stone is warm, not hot, apply to any areas of the body for a nice warming sensation. Be careful not to heat the stone too much to guard against burning.
