What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits?

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits?: Ask Us Your QuestionsWhat Are the Pumice Stone Benefits?

What is the ground pumice herb? Also, what are the pumice stone benefits? Anyone that may be asking these questions, you are in luck, as this cosmetic blog is a great way to answer your questions.  Plus, you can use this blog to find out about the benefits that this herb has for your body.  The cosmetic pumice stone available from Natures Garden is perfect for creating all kinds of cosmetic recipes. Further, there are all kinds of other ways that you can perfectly use this herb. If you are interested, then you can continue reading this blog to learn more about the uses of ground pumice stone.

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits? : What is Pumice?

First of all, pumice isn’t really an herb. This cosmetic ingredient is actually a type of rock. This rock will form certain types of magma that are cooling. In the case of this cosmetic ingredient, the pumice stone would be ground up to be used in all kinds of bath and body recipes. But, not all pumice starts out in such a small form. In fact, some of the pumice stones that are formed can be quite large!

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits? : How is Pumice Made?

Simply, the pumice stone is a type of volcanic rock that is formed from cooling magma. But, there is a bit more you can learn about the formation of this special rock. First of all, there is a slight difference between magma and lava. While these two words are very similar, the difference is that the magma is stuck underground and lava flows above ground.  Sometimes the magma will become lava after a volcano eruption. Other times, the magma will cool underground before it gets the chance to make it to the earth’s surface.  In both of these cases, there is a potential for pumice to form. But, the rock that will be formed from magma that rapidly cools under the ground is more common for industrial use.

However, pumice isn’t formed from just any type of magma. These cosmetic rocks are made from magma that is frothy, full of gases, and cooled rapidly.  The gases will form the little holes that we see in the pumice stones. Once the liquid around the gas solidifies it will leave the air pockets that we see in the hardened rock. If the pumice doesn’t form underground, there is one more way that it can be created. You can have pumice form after a volcano erupts. Once the volcano erupts any of the frothy magma that is spewed out has the potential to quickly cool into pumice as it falls back to the earth. 

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits?: Where is Pumice Found?

Although pumice can be formed underground or in the air after an eruption, most of the pumice is formed by magma cooling underground. Since most of the pumice is created from cooling magma, most of this volcanic stone is mined from the ground. These hunks of pumice can then be used to create pumice stones or ground up to be added to bath and body recipes.

Plus, there is pumice being mined in areas all over the globe. Italy is the largest producer of pumice and is followed closely by nearby countries, like Spain, Greece, and Turkey. However, this volcanic rock can be found all over the globe, including the United States.  Basically, you can find pumice anywhere there was gas and water in magma that is cooing rapidly. So, many of the volcanoes that form near a coast will likely have pumice being created nearby. You can even find this stone in the deepest depths of the ocean, as there places in the oceanic crust where water sinks below the crust and can lead to pumice!

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits?: Industrial Uses

This ground up volcanic rock can be used to create all kinds of great bath and body recipes. Of course, you can use ground pumice to add some exfoliating properties to your bath and body recipes.
