Rhassoul Clay, from the Atlas mountains of Morocco, has been used to help keep skin healthy and beautiful for centuries. In fact, this natural mineral clay has been used on the skin since the eighth century and has been a favorite among the hammams or bath houses!
Touted for it’s cleansing, mineralizing and moisturizing benefits, rhassoul clay makes a wonderful masking base. It’s a great source of silica, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, lithium, and trace elements. I love to add in rosewater, raw honey, avocado oil or chickweed….or use it solo diluted with water to make a thin paste. In fact, here’s one of my recipes:
1 tbsp rhassoul clay (powdered)
2 drops rose or orange essential oil (* I ONLY recommend using Young living oils for their strength, safety and purity)
2 tbsp filtered water
1 tsp raw organic honey
Blend all ingredients together, adding more water to thin if desired.
Apply to clean, damp skin for 15 minutes and rinse thoroughly with wash cloth.
Follow with moisture trmt or serum.
