Melt Chocolate in the top of a double boiler over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon to prevent burning or sticking. Blend in milk and salt, stir until everything is well blended.
Allow to cool slightly, apply with finger tips or a small pastry brush. Cover all of your face, chin and neck if desired, avoid the tender area around your eyes and your lips.
Find something relaxing to do for about 25 minutes while the mask dries, then rinse with a clean cloth and cool water.

French Green Clay is appreciated for it's skin stimulating properties. Your skin will feel revitalized because of the increased blood brought to the surface of your skin. which will help tighten your pores. French Green Clay has traditionally been used for skin problems. It's a very fine clay with amazing absorbent powers and pulls toxins and other impurities from your skin. It's a beautiful pale green color and can be used daily in facials or taken internally to remove Radiatio.n
Once Bentonite is hydrated, it produces an electrical charge which attract and bind to toxins, heavy metals, radiation Bentonite also commonly known as Montmorillonite, is probably the most commonly used healing clays. Externally it's often used as a mud pack or clay poultice to help remove toxins from spider bites, wounds and infections. Internally it can be added to water, juice or a smoothie to help provide about 60 minerals, and to help bind and remove toxins and parasites.
Bentonite attracts toxins, contamination, heavy metals, radiation and other debris and draws them into the center of it's molecular structure, where it binds, holds and removes toxins from your body through elimination. It doesn't remove beneficial herbs and minerals from your body because it's electrical charge only attracts harmful substances. We drink it in our Goat Milk Smoothie. And we have found that all of our dogs, cats, horses and goats will prefer to drink water with Bentonite clay in it, rather than plain water. It is equally beneficial for them.
Rhassoul clay Also known as Moroccon Red Clay where it is mined. There is documented use of Rhassoul clay, as a soap,hair wash, hair conditioner, facials and cleaner and for other medicinal benefits for more than 1,400 years. Rhassoul has higher concentrations of magnesium and silica than other clays and produces the most favorable results.
