I purchase most of my herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs.
Some of the ones used most often in my home and in the recipes here on the blog:
French Green Clay is highly absorbent and removes oil and toxins very effectively. It is best suited to oily skin. It can be a little too strong for dry skin.
Bentonite Clay is one of the least expensive clays. It is suitable for normal to oily skin.
Fuller’s Earth Clay is best reserved for oily and acne prone skin.
