I absolutely love mask! I create a variety of types, but when I begin creating a mask I usually only begin with four simple ingredients. As I begin my process, I usually meditate, listen to very calming music or sounds, and research the historical uses by cultures worldwide when working with my clay. Often the process resembles a potter at a wheel....Let me encourage you, to release the toxins that you carry, that life deposits within you. The experience of liberation may take time, this is a journey not a race. The pruning that will follow a path to nurture may not always be comfortable. Applying a clay mask, allows you to let your fingers, nurture your face during application. This process alone is an African practice, as you begin using clay allow yourself to be free and create beautiful healthy skin.
