The benefits of a clay mask
A mask is a mixture of ingredients that are rich in minerals, that helps to deeply cleanse and condition your face by drawing out toxins and impurities. Clay masks are fantastic for brightening the skin and leaving it to feel taught and refreshed.


Rose Water Clay Mask



This recipe is a soothing mask for your face. The bentonite clay is a very powerful detoxifying and healing clay that contains over 70 minerals. It is excellent for drawing oils and toxins from the skin. The rose water hydrates, revitalises and moisturises the skin, and makes it feel smooth. The milk helps to activate the clay and also leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.


2 tablespoons of bentonite clay

1 tablespoons of milk (goats milk is amazing)

1 tablespoons of rose water

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. This mixture is enough for one application to the face and neck. Apply to cleansed skin, leave for 15 minutes then rinse off with warm water and moisturise.

The benefits of a face and body scrub

A scrub is a type of granule that is mixed with an emollient like oil. It is rubbed into the skin to exfoliate away any dead skin cells and dirt. Once it is washed away, you are left with clean, soft and silky skin. The oil in the scrub leaves your skin moisturised, and the granules improve the circulation of the blood, boosting your circulation and lymphatic system.

Bee Autiful Scrub

This scrub will leave your skin feeling soft, pampered and moisturised. Honey is incredibly healing for the skin and is full of enzymes, calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron and selenium.

Lemon Zest Scrub

This scrub helps reduce oily and blemished skin. The citric acid in the lemon juice helps to clear spots and grease. The honey is healing, and moisturising and the jojoba oil nourishes your skin leaving you to feel zesty and fresh.
