FAT AND THE MOON || PIMPLE MUD
No need to attack our face with harsh chemicals which usually ends up making things worse for our skin and our environment. Better to hone in on the breakout and use the drawing properties that occur naturally in bentonite clay. The pulling effect of the drying clay helps get circulation moving in the face, and with blood comes healin' cells! Improving circulation in the face improves your skin condition over all. Witch hazel extract and tea tree get deep into those pores and get all anti microbial with it. Goldenseal used topically works wonders clearing bacterial issues, making Fat and the Moon's Pimple Mud great to apply to infected cuts and splinters too! Apply to to that pimple and let the mud dry. Then rinse off. Use as a spot treatment or full mask.
Pimple Mud will last a good long while. If it dries out, simply add some water.

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.
