Everyday French Green Clay Bar

Last September Margo, a reader and fellow clay aficionado, commented to tell me about this clay bar she used to buy at Sephora. It was just straight clay, in bar form, and it was nearly $50. Yipes! Margo quickly figured out that she could make her own for a lot less, and I loved that idea. It’s taken me a while to get to it, but here we are. This clay bar is spiked with some of my favourite face mask goodies, and I think you’ll like it.

It’s light and sweet, loaded with fruit, and a fantastic excuse to eat large volumes of whipped cream. It’s also beautifully simple to make and easy to customize to whatever fruit you happen to have on hand.

Anyhow, in an attempt to assuage my wanderlust, I’ve devised five world travel inspired scent blends to use in my Saje Aroma Cloud ultrasonic diffuser. They’re inspired by cities and landscapes from all over the world—some I’ve visited and some I’m still just dreaming of. I hope you enjoy them as much as I am.
