FLOWER MASK

The Flower Mask for me is the purest cleanser, rich in plants that GIVE, in other words they don’t just perform their task by cleansing, they do more, they calm, they clean, they brighten, I feel safe with their interaction with my cells, they know how to communicate with them safely. 

New Ingredients are added to the FLOWER MASK

The Flower Mask for me is the purest cleanser, rich in plants that GIVE, in other words they don’t just perform their task by cleansing, they do more, they calm, they clean, they brighten, I feel safe with their interaction with my cells, they know how to communicate with them safely. 

I activate the dried herbs by adding a clean liquid to them like distilled rosewater, or freshly squeezed juice, I mix it into a paste, it will poof up when you put the liquid because the sider (latin name: ziziphus christi) leaf pufs up like a foaming detergent leaf- magical to me! I apply it as a scrub and then I leave it on like a mask for the clay to dry up and attach itself to dirt, and then wash it off like a scrub.

My only caution is you must moisturize, exfoliating is inevitable but it is drying so you need to clean the surface and then moisturize.

 

Why I added Myrrh and Alum for better performance?

Myrrh is the “detol” of the ancient world, the antiseptic performer, it works in a complex manner, and we need that complex sophistication if the performance is on our face! While it cleans it speeds up healing, it gels wounds, it puts any kind of “disorder” back in “order”, this is known of all the herbs that are in the category of sesquiterpenol, which means that their natural chemical structure makes them put things back in order. You can research that word if you are interested to delve deeper into this, I prefer to keep it light and easy but leaving a few key words for people who are more curious.

 

Why Alum?

Alum is a well known natural deodorant, in the Middle East it was given to brides to help them prepare themselves for their wedding day! So why am I choosing to put in on the face? It’s a well known astringent, for me astringent is a super exciting word because in simpler words it means “tightens” Its behavior on wounds is very telling on how it works- it accelerates wound closure and stops bleeding almost immediately, that is a quality we need to also keep our pores safe, tight, and closed thank you! Only  a small dose is used in the Flower Mask.
