Most pumice stones are synthetically made from ground pumice powder and glue . . . these are the REAL DEAL directly from the stream beds of Mount Shasta.
Volcanic pumice is a stone age tool for the 21st century, ideal for filing down foot calluses the time-honored way. Pumice forms when escaping gases in airborne molten lava create solid foam, thus forming one handy elemental tool. Stones wash down Mt. Shasta – last eruption believed late 1700’s- with snowmelt. Thicker abrasive cell walls make these less buoyant than lighter kinds, but are far more durable- a cared for rock can last years.
Callus removal: Soak and lather well to soften skin. Wet stone. Finding smoothest work face or point, scrub gently, increasing pressure as attune to process. Rinse often to slough away dead skin- pumice works with liquid. Remove thicker calluses over time. With patience you’ll file away gnarliest “alligator skin.” Finish with favorite moisturizer.
Pumice care: To unclog residue buildup, soak in hot soapy water. Scrub with wire brush, rinsing often. Handle with care; rocks can fracture if dropped. Dry in sun to purify, re-energize and restore buoyancy.
Cautions: Sharp craters on some. Always use mindfully.
