WELCOME TO EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THIS EXPERIENCE!
First a little bit about your box's contents.
We have carefully chosen 2 Thermal Spa Treatments
Pure Mediterranean Sea Salt, which as the name suggests, is sourced from the Mediterranean sea and during harvesting, the sea water is evaporated and the salt is left behind. Unlike another other popular varieties of salt, Mediterranean salt is white in color and resembles coarse table salt. Your sachet of salt has it's own unique mineral composition and various wonderful benefits for your skin and your overall health when enjoyed in a warm bath with your favorite essential oils. This salt has humectant properties, meaning it traps moisture in the skin and prevents moisture loss through the pores. In this way it offers beautiful all natural hydrating properties in your own at home oasis. Sea salt also has intense detoxifying properties, and will help to draw toxins out of the body and the skin.
Moroccan Ghassoul Clay, a high-quality soothing clay for external use that stores indefinitely if kept dry. It is sourced from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and is often used in spas for skin and hair. It is also called Ghassoul Clay, Red Clay, and Red Moroccan Clay, and it can only be found under this specific mountain range in Morocco. It is formed by a natural combination of volcanic activity and geothermal changes. Your sachet contains untreated and naturally dried clay with a silk-like feel which can help even out skin tone and reduce blemishes. It has the unique ability to nourish skin and reduce breakouts and many people use it daily as a natural soap and shampoo. Clinical studies have found that it can increase skin elasticity, even skin tone, reduce blemishes and blackheads, and reduce skin dryness or flakiness.
In general, Ghassoul can be used like any other clay. Some of the ways you can use it are:
Face Mask: The simplest use for Rhassoul clay is as a face mask. It can be mixed with water or something like rose water to form a silky paste. This paste can be brushed or rubbed onto the face and left to dry before washing off.
Face Scrub: Rhassoul can also be combined with other ingredients to make an exfoliating and smoothing scrub. My favorite is mixing 1 Tablespoon Rhassoul clay with 1 Tablespoon ground oatmeal and apple cider vinegar to form a paste. I use about once a week for an exfoliating face scrub. As a bonus, it can be massaged into the face to exfoliate for 1-2 minutes and then left for another 5 minutes to dry before washing off. This will offer the benefits of a mask and an exfoliation in one step.
Hair Mask: I mixed 1 tablespoon Rhassoul clay into 1/4 cup of water to make a thin mixture that I pour onto my hair and massage in. For hair, it is important not to let the mixture dry as it can contribute to hair breakage if it hardens. I prefer to massage into hair in the shower and leave for about 30 seconds before washing.
Full Body Mask: For great skin all-over, I’ve made a simple paste of clay and water and used as a full body mask before taking a bath and washing it off.
