Ghassoul - Nature's Soap

Category: Clay Discoveries
Posted: 2007-08-19 16:04

In our world of "face lifts in a jar", we are on a seemingly endless quest for the perfect solution to clean, healthy, younger looking skin.

Did you trip on the word "looking"?
What if you want clean, healthy, young skin - PERIOD?!

Why have we let ourselves be caught up in this tornado of "play on words"? The arm-long list of ingredients that are conceived in a lab are hardly what is best for us and can only deliver temporary results. The toxic soup they saturate your tissues with is another issue.

Nature holds all the secrets for our well-being. Deep from the Atlas Mountains, in Morocco, comes Ghassoul Clay (pronounced rassool).

This mineral rich, reddish-brown clay is used for body wraps, as a unique soap, and a natural shampoo. Traditionally traded by people indigenous to North Africa and beyond, this unique clay-like material is now enjoying global popularity, especially in high end European spas.

Ghassoul contains earth's most natural, most necessary health and beauty elements: magnesium, calcium, silicon, iron, potassium, and sodium. It has the capacity of absorbing 1.66 times its weight in water, releasing all of its minerals and energizing ions richness.

Ghassoul is an absorbent clay that dissolves in water, and it has a special quality which plus-ionizes plenty of minerals when it is dissolved. The ionized minerals help to fill up the NMF (Natural Moisture Factor) that is lost by our skin through stress and aging. These also make keratin strong and carry out recovery promotion of the damage of horny layer. NMF is natural cellulite that fills between cells.

One of important conditions of healthy skin means always maximizing the NMF. As a result, the skin is healthier and brighter.

The clay adsorbs the oils and dirt from skin, scalp, and hair. The minerals which become plus-ionized with water make the skin smooth and hair soft and manageable. Also, you'll be relaxed by natural, clean and earthly aroma.

Add a floral water (especially Rose, Lavender, or Clary Sage) when dissolving Ghassoul in water then combine to make a soft clay - like melted chocolate - and use to wash your face, body, and hair.

Why settle for healthier "looking" skin?
Get the real deal with Ghassoul, nature's perfect soap!

Essential Oil 101

Category: Essential Oils
Posted: 2007-08-16 11:35

There are a wide variety of Essential oils and these have remarkable qualities that enhance health, beauty, and well being. Not to be confused with fragrant oils which are combinations of synthetically manufactured chemicals are designed to "mimic" the aroma of natural materials.

Essential oils are distilled from plant material using water, steam or both. The process involves placing plant material over a grate and forcing steam through the grate. In the alternative, the plant material can be placed in boiling water. In either case, the heat from the steam and/or water causes the plant material to break apart and release an aromatic vapor. This vapor is condensed through cooling tubes into liquid form. This liquid is partly the essential oil of the plant and partly the hydrosol (water) of the plant. The essential oil and hydrosol are then separated from one another and bottled. Different essential oils product different results in different persons with different skin types
