The masks you will get at El Grullo Naturista are made of black mud collected from volcanic drains in the municipality of El Grullo, Jalisco. This mud is made up of silica, aluminum, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, calcium, copper, volcanic ash, feldspar, and quartz, and it comes from the area’s semi-deep mantles. They are carried from that point with extreme caution to avoid contamination.
Since ancient times, mud has been used as a therapeutic element. Egyptian doctors, like the Greeks and Romans, used it to treat inflammations 2,500 years ago. German doctors prescribed it orally in cases of dysentery and typhoid fever during World War I.
- Among the benefits of black mud, we find that it is:
Healing and regenerating
- Purifying, decongestant, and detoxifying
- Antibacterial, anti-infectious, antiseptic and disinfectant
Let us now discuss the nettle. It has also been used as a remedy to flagellate parts of the body affected by rheumatism and to stimulate circulation since ancient times. Its leaves are elongated, with serrated edges. The plant is completely covered in stinging hair. At the slightest contact, the tips break and enter the skin, where they directly inject their stinging content.
If you come across it in the field and it comes into contact with your skin, it will irritate you severely. However, in your therapies, we use it to the appropriate extent to achieve the desired effect.
Your therapist will gently pat your face with nettle before applying the mud mask. This will aid in the stimulation of circulation, which will open pores and allow mud to permeate more easily.
The mask will cover your entire face as well as the top of your neck. Rest it for an hour before removing it with water and a damp towel to remove any residual remains. You will notice its effects very quickly when it begins to reduce inflammation, eliminate twitches, and reduce acne.
