French Green clay is best used for OILY SKIN types and for its fluid reducing properties. It can be used as a poultice for muscles or joints with swelling or inflammation when combined with Juniper Berry and/or Cypress essential oils. It can also be used to draw out infections, poison ivy, or skin rashes generally.
DETOXIFYING MASK FOR OILY SKIN
3 TBS Green Clay
1 TBS Aloe Vera Gel
1 TBS Water or Apple Cider Vinegar
1 drop Manuka Essential oil (antibacterial benefits)
Combine the above ingredients well. Wet the face with warm water first. Gently massage the clay mixture into the face upwards to cleanse. Leave it on the face for no more than 7-8 minutes. This mask is very drawing and will irritate the skin if left on too long. The mask should not be allowed to completely dry. Gently wipe off with a warm wet cloth. Follow with organic aloe vera gel or jojoba oil.
