This clay is loaded with minerals deposited here in the North Cascade region 200,000 years ago! Honey Bee Holistics has sustainably harvested this glaciomarine clay from the Northeastern sector of the Puget Sound. The clay is hand harvested, dried and ground by Honey Bee Holistics. Then the ground clay is blended with Organic Essential oils that are specifically chosen for each listed skin type. While the clay particles gently exfoilate, the essential oils nourish the skin with the healing properties of Organic plants and resins. Safe enough for all skin types to use. Each treatment should be followed by an application of moisturizer to replenish lost oils. Do not use more than once per week or excessive dryness may occur.
