Here are a few of our suggested uses for our Balanced Skin Clay Masque:
Poultice for boil or other skin issues: Scoop out desired amount (start with a little and then add more as needed). Make a thick paste by adding a small amount of water, let it set for a few hours and then apply to the area of concern about ¼-inch thick. Wrap with gauze to keep in place allowing it to work for up to 2 hours. If the area is too painful to apply directly, apply the paste to the gauze and wrap gently around the area.
Face mask: Do not use more than once per week as it can be drying. Scoop out a small amount (a little goes a long way). Apply paste to the face and let sit for 5-15 minutes. Wash by scooping warm water towards face and gently washing off. For added moisture: add 1-2 drops of our sunrise sunset or inner peace 1ml preblended stocks to the mixture. The oils in these are skin nourishing.
Mineral bath for arthritis, muscle pain, or skin irritation: Add 2-3 spoonfuls to warm water. Soak and relax.
Our White Kaolin clay originates from the USA and is the mildest of all clays, making it perfect for sensitive skin. This very fine, off-white clay is also known as White Kaolin Cosmetic Clay or China Clay. It mixes easily with water, making it popular for face masks. White Kaolin clay draws impurities form the skin, exfoliates, decreases inflammation, reduces swelling, and increases circulation.
Our French Green clay is hand-extracted from deposits of ancient marine clay of France, where it is sun-dried, then ground to a fine powder. The result is a light green/gray clay that is great for detoxification, decongestion, clearing skin blemishes, and relieving skin irritation. French Green clay is rich in active minerals including calcium, silicium, mineral oxides, magnesium, potassium, dolomite, silica, manganese, phosphorous, silicon, copper, and selenium. When this clay pulls the toxins and excess oils from your skin, it replaces them with these beneficial minerals. It is a popular choice for facial masks and makes a beautiful mineral bath that is soothing for arthritis and muscle pain. This clay absorbs toxins, tightens skin, and revitalizes your complexion. This clay works excellent in poultices to spot-treat boils or blemishes, as well.
