The Terracotta Therapeutic Body Stone is perfect for holding in your hand and it has a variety of uses including giving relief for arthritis, poor circulation, period pain, foot care and massage. It is simple to use:
- Heat it in the microwave with a small amount of water (around 4 tbsps in a cup) to maintain heating efficiency. Heat it for 2 minutes on high for 30-60 minutes of heat. As microwaves vary, check that it isn’t too hot for your skin before using it. If it is too hot when it comes out of the microwave, just leave it to cool for 5 minutes.
- Pour a few drops of your favourite oil or cream onto the body stone or a deep heat linament and place the body stone against the affected part of the body. This is good for arthritis, joint or muscle pain or bruising.
- Turn your body stone into a hand warmer for poor circulation or for congested chests it can be placed on your chest with some vaporub.
- It can help period pain or an upset stomach if heated and held against the stomach.
It’s abrasive base can be used to remove dry skin from elbows or feet
The bubbles on the upper surface of the body stone are ideal for massage, as a cellulite rub or for exfoliating.
The body stone is easily cleaned by boiling it for five minutes and the rope can be wound around the wrist to steady it while it is being used, or can be used to hang your body stone when not in use.
The Terracotta Therapeutic Body Stone was handcrafted at Waihi Beach in New Zealand by Dreaming Pottery.
