Trying to live as naturally as possible took a lot of relearning! While reading books about natural living I would learn about natural versions of everything! Somehow I learned about natural pumice stones and could only find them to purchase in Spain! I kept those few little pieces protected for many years knowing they were difficult to find. 

I was thrilled to find these wild pumice stones hand gathered by one person from a wild creek! In recent years, he has reported increased difficulty in being able to get to the creek because of encroaching landowners. I predict when these are gone it will be difficult to find more. Knowing this, I have several pieces in a pile above our shower that create a beautiful, natural, inspiring environment! Almost like showering outside! Hello! Happiness

DIRECTIONS: Soak to soften skin. Wet stone. Scrub gently, increasing pressure as needed. Rinse often to slough away dead skin- pumice works with liquid. Remove thicker calluses over time.

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.

CAUTIONS: Sharp craters on some. Use mindfully. It is exactly as found in nature, so no warranty can be made.
