FAT AND THE MOON || MERMAID MASK
It’s amazing what getting food on your face can do for your skin! Inspired from a raw dessert that went oh so wrong, Fat and the Moon’s Mermaid Mask does your hair and skin oh so right. Irish moss, honey rhassoul clay and aloe vera hydrate and bask your bod in nutrients brought to you by animal, vegetable and mineral. Dewy glow in a jar- straight up. For the face, this champ of a mask tones and moisturizers at the same time. Honey lends an anti bacterial hand, so it’s a perfect mask for pimples and dry skin combos. For the hair, Mermaid Mask softens while adding body, and dare I say an un-earthly glow? It happened to my friend Em!
To get your own Mermaid Mask party started....
For the face, mix 1 teaspoon of the mask with a few tablespoons of hot water and massage into your face. Leave on for at least 20 minutes.

And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’.
In part, I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
