Clay is a natural substance mined from the earth; it has been blessed by many sunrises, rainstorms and moon rises.
Using clay as a beauty aid harnesses the energy of thousands of years for a wonderful, cleansing experience. Ancient civilizations were well aware of the healing properties of clay and used it for a variety of purposes. Egyptians used clay extensively in their spiritual culture and Native Americans used clay in religious ceremonies to allow energy, healing, and wisdom to pass through it.

Clay is a popular ingredient used in facial masks because as it dries, it pulls toxins and other impurities out of the skin.
At the same time, the minerals in the clay are absorbed into the skin giving your face a wonderful feel and natural glow. Matcha Green Tea and Spirulina provide powerful antioxidants such as chlorophyll and polyphenol, EGCG for skin health and protection. Marshmallow root softens and reduces inflammation.
Exquisite Essential oil of Helichrysum (known as Everlasting and Immortelle) is widely used in skin care and beauty products to discourage inflammation and encourage healing. Helichrysum is also used to diffuse anger and destructive feelings.
~Simply add 1 teaspoon of clay mixture to a small amount of water (just a few drops!) to form a paste. Massage into face and neck once or twice a week, allow to dry, then rinse and pat dry.
Moisturize afterward with our Goddess Facial Serum or your favorite natural moisturizer.
Tips: Try adding a dash of raw honey after you have mixed your clay powder with water if you have dry skin. Honey is a humectant that draws moisture to skin. Raw honey is antimicrobial and antiseptic and it can help brighten skin, even out skin tone and reduce scars and age spots.
Or add a few drops of apple cider vinegar instead of water for acne prone skin. The pH level of apple cider vinegar is similar to the pH of the protective ‘acid mantle’ layer of our skin. This will help restore balance and improve the feel and appearance of skin.
