This recipe is a mixed face scrub/mini mask. Either, you can apply to your face, rinse it off and you’re done. But if you have more time, just leave it on for a couple of minutes (up to 15) to let the clay dry, and nourish your skin even more.
- 2 tablespoons rhassoul clay
- 1 tablespoon cornflour
- 1 tablespoon white clay (or obe more tablespoon of cornflour if you don’t have white clay at hand)
- 1 tablespoon dried flowers or herbs (I used a mixture of rose, chamomile and Achillea millefolium)
- (essential oils)
If in chunks, add the rhassoul clay to a blender or coffee grinder, grind until it is a coarse powder and then add the flowers. Grind until you have a fine powder (if you feel the cornflour and white clay needs grinding, feel free). If you like, add a few drops of essential oil of your preference.
Mix, and pour into a glass jar with a tight lid. To use, add a bit of powder to the palm of your hand and add a little bit of water, mix into a thick paste and apply to face and neck. It can be used every morning and night, but I tend to use it about two-three times a week. For a more nourishing cleanse, you can use other liquids instead of water: vegetable oil, rose water, aloe vera, milk, yogurt, cream, herb infusion, honey… Or just your regular soap or face cleanser.
If stored in a dark and dry place, this scrub is going to last for many, many years.
