Keep it Clean: How to Clean Himalayan Salt Massage Stones

Himalayan Salt Stone Massages are becoming increasingly popular. The benefits of using Himalayan Salt Stones during a massage are numerous, including the absorption of 84 trace minerals through the skin, relief of anxiety, increased relaxation, light exfoliation of the skin, improves circulation, supports healthy blood pressure levels, and more.

But these are blocks of salt…so how the heck do you clean them?

According to Saltability, the manufacturer of some of our most popular Himalayan Salt Stones, it is a simple process:

The simple disinfecting process will ensure the safety of your clients and therapists.

  1. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds
  2. Spray Himalayan salt stones and slab with Decon-30
  3. Wait 10 minutes (this wait time is essential to kill any possible contaminants)
  4. Wipe stones down with a clean cloth
  5. Inspect for pitting, and sand any rough areas
  6. Cover with clean towel
  7. Stones are ready for your next treatment!
According to Saltability, even though 100% pure Himalayan salt is antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial, taking measures to disinfect is a recommended, precautionary step to ensure the safety of your clients and therapists. As water will cause the salt stones to disintegrate, using 100% natural Decon-30 keeps the purity of the stones intact after cleaning. Decon-30 is a non-toxic, one-step disinfectant ideal for disinfecting and preventing cross-contamination without harsh fumes that can be harmful to your staff.
Next time you reach for those basalt stones, think again – and offer your clients a relaxing massage using Himalayan Salt Stones instead!

Salt of the Earth: A Comparison of Bulk Salts Offered By Pure Spa Direct

At Pure Spa Direct, we offer all types of bulk salts, whether they are from the Mediterranean Sea, the French Coast, the Dead Sea or the Himalayan Mountains. But its all just Sodium Chloride, right? The answer is a resounding NO – There are major differences that will have a definitive impact on your clients and the services your offer.

This particular type of salt is solar evaporated on the shores of the Mediterranean, meaning that sea water is left out in the sun to evaporate under natural conditions. Once the water has evaporated, pure sea salt crystals are revealed. This is probably one of the more popular salts since it is cost-effective, available in a multitude of grain sizes and it also dissolves quickly. Containing such minerals as Iodine, Fluorine, Magnesium and Potassium, this salt can be used as a soak and a scrub.

This Sea Salt is farmed from the Brittany Marshes off the coast of France using methods that have been in place for over 1000 years. Unrefined and full of trace minerals, this salt is actually lower in sodium and contains Calcium, Potassium, Copper, Zinc and Iron. While it can be used as a scrub, this salt is best used as a soak. Also, due to its excessively dry nature, it is able to absorb essential oils better than other salts. This is one of the best salts to use for aromatherapy.

Unlike the previous 2 types of salt, this particular sodium chloride is obtained not from the ocean, but rather the famed Dead Sea, a 3 million year old salt water lake. Another key difference is the fact that Dead Sea Salt only contains 10% sodium, and the remaining 90% is comprised essential minerals including Zinc, Iodine, Potassium, Calcium and Bromides. The effectiveness of the Dead Sea is not only due to the salt content, but also the atmosphere of the region. You can bring to Dead Sea to your spa, however, by creating custom soaks with the salt. Since it is so rich in minerals that the human body constantly needs to replenish, soaking treatments will provide the greatest benefits, but this salt can also be used as a scrub. Soaking in Dead Sea Salt has been shown to help treat such issues as cellulite, water retention, itching, acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, scabies, dandruff and hair loss.
Mined from deep within the largest mountain range in the world, Himalayan Salts look more like coarse gemstones than chunks of salt. These completely pure salts were formed millions of years ago and have never been exposed to any types of pollutants or toxins. In addition to sodium, this salt also contains 84 trace minerals, including all 74 elements found in the human body. Himalayan Salt is best used for hydrotherapy treatments as submersion is the most efficient way to absorb the product. This salt has been shown to heal wounds and muscle injuries, repair skin texture and tone, combat cellulite and water retention, and even plump up the skin to fill out fine lines and wrinkles.
