Cosmetic Uses: Red Moroccan Clay colors soap to a light reddish brown color with 1 teaspoon per lb of soap. To help keep from clumping when adding to your soap, mix with a small amount of one of the oils you will be using and then add at light trace. Using glass, pottery or wooden container, (do not use metals) combine red clay with sufficient liquid to make a paste. Let it sit 2 or 3 minutes. Using fingertips, spread a consistent layer to fully cover the skin (for the purpose of a masque, avoid getting clay in mouth, eyes, ears, nose.) Sit, if possible, and relax, maybe think some peaceful thoughts, and allow the clay to dry. (4 min. for sensitive skin, 8 minutes for normal skin.) As it dries it tightens. It is working and removing impurities. Wash thoroughly and gently to remove the masque. Follow with your choice of natural toner and moisturizer.

Alternatives to water in the clay masque-paste are almost endless: Lemon juice, essential oil waters (just a drop or two), herb tisanes (peppermint, chamomile, comfrey, calendula, ginger, lavender, etc.) Powdered herbs can be added to the clay before mixing (marshmallow, calendula, slippery elm bark, etc.)

Usages: Masks, lotions, shampoo, wraps and soap.
