b w {g!} faves: to the power of 3

lemme tell ya, these three muskateers are a power-packed trio! 

Soothing Oil, Rhassoul Clay and Fine Sea Salt work individually or together for beautiful, compounding effects to condition & refine the skin, keeping it resilient & glowing.

the Soothing Oil is perfect post-sugaring (or after any type of exfoliation).  I also like to add a drop or two to the Rhassoul Clay when I make a deep cleaning mask.  The Rhassoul Clay & Sea Salt combine for the perfect full body exfoliation (or use the salt solo and it will do sluff away the day!).

here's a fab treat for your tootsies after a long day:
Fill a bowl large enough for both feet with warm water, add a handful of Fine Sea Salt, a dash of Rhassoul Clay and 3 drops of Soothing Oil.  Pour yourself a glass of tasty red wine, and settle into a comfy seat, then slide your little doggies into the water. Ahhhhhhh ... sip your wine and enjoy!  To spice it up, take a small handful of sea salt and exfoliate the rough edges of your feet. (Bonus: you'll also exfoliate your hands too!).

Once you're done with your wine and/or your soak, warm a half dropper of Soothing Oil in your hands and massage your feet, making sure to work the oil around the nail beds and in the toe crevices.

Mucho more details on ingredients, 
origins and uses below the unicorn!

Soothing Oil

A combination of nine natural healing oils (including tea tree, hemp seed, and vitamin E oils) Tamara's Soothing Oil is antiseptic, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal, which makes this a perfect oil to use post sugaring treatments.
Use post-exfoliation, post-sugaring and on cuts, insect bites, new tattoos, athlete's foot, toenail fungus and mild burns to prevent scarring.

Rhassoul Clay
A truly exquisite spa quality clay from ancient deposits unearthed from the fertile Atlas Mountains in Morocco. This mineral rich clay blends extremely well with water making its application to the face and skin a smooth and delightful experience. This clay has been used for over 1400 years as a soap, shampoo, and skin conditioner, and the finest spas across the world currently utilize it for its therapeutic benefits.

This clay is quarry mined from deep beneath the Atlas Mountains in Eastern Morocco. It is sun dried and untreated. When first mined, Rhassoul clay appears as a polished brown, soap-like clay, which is chunky in appearance and resembling rocks. After further refinement and micronization, the end product is a smooth almost silken earth.
Because Rhassoul can be used for a variety of professional applications, it is an invaluable enhancement for spa treatments and for personal use. As Rhassoul is considered to contain higher percentages of silica and magnesium than other clays, it is thought to be far more effective. Also, due to its greater ability to swell with the addition of water, Rhassoul achieves better results in skin treatment.
Fine Sea Salt
This all natural, solar evaporated sea salt makes the perfect scrub, bath salt, or addition to your custom formulated bath blends. Our sea salt is gathered from the Pacific Ocean on the West Coast of North America.

Enjoy a truly euphoric bathing experience by combining these all-natural salts with dried herbs, flowers, and essential oils. Salt is vital to good health, and is required by the human body in order to function properly.

Sodium functions as an electrolyte, and assists with regulating the electrical charges within our cells. Chloride supports potassium absorption, enhances carbon dioxide transportation, regulates body fluid levels, and is an essential component of digestive acids.
