Body & Soul: Volcanic Clay Body Scrub

article image

<p>Natural clays are easy to find at many natural-food stores. Look for tropical clays from volcanic islands. You can substitute ground pumice, a natural stone made from super-cooled lava, for the clay in this recipe. Along with drinking plenty of water and eating healthy foods, using a body scrub once a week will help boost circulation to the skin and keep it healthy and smooth. <em>Makes 3 ounces (one treatment).</em>
<p>• 2 tablespoons natural clay or ground pumice<br />
• 1 tablespoon sea salt<br />
• Water, as needed</p>
<p>1. Mix together clay and salt using enough water to make a smooth paste.</p>
<p>2. To use, massage paste onto your body and allow it to dry on your skin, about 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water and follow with a rich body cream or natural oil.</p>
