After all the indulgence we have participated in during the festive season, now is a great time to start detoxing and preparing ourselves for spring time. I know we still have that huge New Year’s Day dinner and perhaps yet more partying with even more alcohol and most probably yet more chocolates to munch our way through before we fizzle back to normality and back to the grind stone of life, but now is still a perfect detox time!
I want to introduce you to one of our hidden classics… I say hidden because there are still some of you who have not yet dug deep enough into the pages of our site and what is hidden in the depths of those pages. So let us dive deep into the abyss and see what wonders we can find!
Our Million Year Old Mud is an all over Body Mask… and YES it REALLY does contain million year old mud!! Mud has been used for beauty treatments for centuries and is rife with natural vitamins, minerals and essential skin nutrients. It is one of the best substances for pulling out toxins and pollutants from deep within your pores, and because it is so rife with minerals it is also said to alleviate skin problems such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. On top of that it is also believed to soothe joint pains such as arthritis when applied warm! It stimulates circulation, absorbs impurities, exfoliates dead skin cells, and hydrates skin from deep within.
Our bodies are constantly under attack from the many toxins which are present in our environment. The removal of toxins from our body is essential because an overload of toxins can cause side effects such as low energy (which can lead to depression), skin breakouts and a flair up of skin problems and even chronic pains. Applying mud to the skin will gently open the pores allowing nutrients in and actively drawing out lactic acid and metabolic waste from skin tissues. Fulvic and Humic substances are abundant in mud (# 1) which is effective in binding with toxins and removing them from the body, thus making one of the most effective detoxing agents.
You don’t need to go to the Spa and pay a lot of money for this superb skin treatment, because Parsley Sage have made it possible for you to wallow in this rich luxuriant mud in the comfort of your own home! You will see many Body Mud Masks advertised that cost a fortune because of its uniqueness and powerful therapeutic benefits, but as always we at Parsley Sage despise charging the ‘earth’ to give you a jar of it refined specially for cosmetic purposes! In truth it is very rare to find such an exquisite and unique product such as this at a price that will not leave you broke! Remember our mission is to present you with high quality handmade products at ‘affordable’ prices, which is a very important necessity during this awful recession, when sadly, there are many who are sacrificing pampering products feeling it is the only way to make ends meet. Yet there are more people nowadays in need of unwinding, relaxing, distressing and therapeutically winding away all the woes of the world in order to revamp those body batteries! We really don’t need to neglect our holistic, therapeutic and skin care routine because of a recession, in fact now is the perfect time to allow yourself that indulgence… and this is why we choose not to exploit your purses! For a 240g jar of this exceptionally unique and amazing Body Mud Mask we only charge £5.00… How great is that!
Simple to use: It’s best to take a bath or shower first so that your skin is damp (not wet) and all you have to do is apply the mud liberally at room temperature, wallow for ten minutes or so and then rinse off to leave your skin amazingly fresh and refined! If you want to apply the Mud warm, simply scoop the required amount into a bowl and stand the bowl in hot (not boiling) water until the mud is ‘warm’… you don’t want ‘hot’ mud because that could burn your skin!! It is best to scoop the mud into your bowl a little at a time so that it doesn’t dry out in the heat, and you can do legs first before rinsing off and continue this way covering your body a little at a time.
#1: Humic and Fulvic acid, the two essential compounds that result from nature’s own process of recycling the elements of life. Humic and Fulvic acid have been found to play an important role in cell metabolism, acting as carriers of essential nutrients into and metabolic wastes out of the cell. They also act to convert some waste products into useful materials within the cell.
