Cleansing Grains

Create a cleansing experience so luxurious, leaving your skin so beautiful, that you may never cover your skin with makeup.

A cleanser rooted in ancient ritual, Cleansing Grains are powered by earth and plants; the perfect cleanser to start and end your day with.

This incredibly gentle, deliciously luxurious water-activated powder brings together the gentle cleansing and brightening powers of clay, and the moisturizing and exfoliating benefits of almonds, oats and a blend of vitamin-rich botanicals to leave you with soft, luminous and healthy skin. 


  • Gently exfoliates to remove dull, dry skin, revealing a smooth, radiant complexion
  • Whisk away oils, dirt, and pollution without stripping your skin
  • Brightens and enhances glow
  • Smooths skin texture with gentle buffing
  • Powdered formulation lasts a long time and allows you to customize the texture to your preference
  • Does double duty as a mask: Simple leave on your skin for a few minutes before rinsing
  • Changing your mix in from water to another liquid offers customization options


  • 1 cup oats, ground
  • 2 cups white clay
  • 1/4 cup almonds, ground
  • 1/8 cup lavender flowers, ground
  • 1/8 cup rose petals, ground


Combine together and place in a glass jar.

Mix 1-2 teaspoons with water or other liquid (see options below). Massage on face, leave for 1-15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

Follow with toner and moisturizer for a complete morning or evening facial.


You can add any flower or herb you wish. Instead of using water to mix your grains, use an:

  • herbal tea such as sage, nettle, peppermint, or chamomile
  • a few drops carrier oil and water
  • a teaspoon honey and water
  • cold coffee
  • be creative

Rose Clay Facial Mask

Rose clay, often referred to as pink clay, is a gentle, natural clay that contains kaolinite. Rose clay is fabulous for most skin types; including sensitive skin. Rose clay provides gentle exfoliation, helps to draw toxins from the skin, helps to increase circulation, reduces skin irritation, and helps to reduce inflammation.

Most rose clay facials can contain many ingredients, but you can make a homemade facial with only two ingredients:

Rose Clay

Fresh Water

Place 1 Tablespoon rose clay to a cup.  Add one drop of water at a time until it forms a thick paste.

Note:  Instead of water, you can use drops of carrier oil such as almond, argon, avocado, sunflower for a more moisturizing facial.  If you want a fresh scent, you can also use a drop of essential oil too.

Apply to face, keeping clear of lips and eyes.  You may apply to neck, shoulders, and other parts of the body such as shoulders.

It goes on dark red and dries a light pink.  Leave on 15 minutes, or until dry.  Rinse off with warm water, followed by a cool splash.  Pat dry with a soft towel.  Don’t use a wash cloth to remove the facial mask, because it will stain.  I found out the hard way.

Hint: You can also use an herbal tea instead of water.

Use Weekly

Follow up with coconut oil or your favorite oil.
