How are Himalayan salt massage stones made?

Himalayan pink salt can be found deep within the Himalayan mountains.  Once the salt blocks are mined they are hand-carved into massage stones which ensures that each set of stones is unique in style and color. 

Another unique factor of each set of stones is the color.  The salt crystals contain 84 trace minerals including iron oxide and each stone ranges in color due to the amount of iron oxide in the crystal. Generally these colors vary from deep pink to pale white.

How do you use Himalayan salt massage stones?

The stones can be used either hot or cold and are placed directly on the skin, or rolled on specific muscle groups.

Massage stones are a fantastic way to help look after your body and mind, both physically and spiritually. When you have had a day working in the garden, or you are just wanting a way to relax and unwind a hot stone massage (or even a cold one) may be just the thing to help.

How to heat Himalayan salt massage stones


  • Himalayan salt massage stones can be heated slowly in the microwave, or in a pan on a warmer.
  • Do not overheat the stones as they need to feel comfortable when placed directly on the skin.
  • Hot stones slowly release their heat over a 25-35 minute period.
  • Round stones are good for rolling over muscles which may feel tight due to stress or incorrect body posture.

How to cool Himalayan salt massage stones


  • To use cold place your Himalayan salt massage stones in the freezer for a couple of hours.
  • The use of cold massage stones may help reduce inflammation.
  • Stones remain cold but they will eventually warm up when placed directly on the skin.
  • Like hot stones, take care that the skin does not burn when cold stones are used.

How to clean Himalayan salt massage stones

How to clean Himalayan salt stones. There is no need to ‘wash’ your massage stones as they are naturally antimicrobial. However we suggest giving them a quick rinse under cold water, pat dry cloth with a soft cloth, and store them in a dry, non-humid environment.  Also remember you should not immerse the stones fully in water as this will remove the surface salt.

If you are using the massage stones in a more formal setting, such as a spa, where they will be used on different clients, you will be required to follow the cleaning regime and guidelines pertinent to your country.

How long do Himalayan salt massage stones last?

Obviously the more times you use the stones the quicker they will need replacing.  And remember how you clean them will also have an impact on how long they last.

But don’t throw them away. When they are no longer suitable as massage stones they can be reused as bath salts, just place them under warm running water. Then you can like back and bathe in a Himalayan mineral bath.


Why not try using a set of Himalayan salt massage stones to help look after your body and mind? Or you can also just leave them in the salt lamp bowl as a decorative item. Also remember if you follow the cleaning tips and look after your massage stones you will be able to use them time and time again.
