Nutrive Greens Mask
The Nutritive Greens Mask is a green smoothie for your face. Five green herbs and superfoods are blended with French Green Clay and raw Scottish wildflower honey to create the ultimate face mask that detoxifies, tones, and nourishes. Each ingredient is nutrient-dense, packing in a high amount of chlorophyll and amino acids which help fight free radicals. Raw honey inhibits bacterial growth and helps may skin ailments such as acne and irritation. Unlike many clay masks which may cause further dryness, the honey in this mask helps to nourish and protect skin, making it an excellent choice for combination skin types.
Directions for use: After cleansing, scoop a small amount from jar with a clean spoon and apply directly to face. Leave on for 10-15 minutes, then wash off with warm water.

About aster & bay: Erin Hammond began aster & bay in 2012 as an experimental project while she was undergoing training in western herbalism. After having lived in both Edinburgh, Scotland and Atlanta, Georgia, she was inspired by the botanical diversity and herbal lore of both places- the Appalachian Mountains and the Scottish Highlands- and sought to incorporate as many of these indigenous ingredients into her formulations as possible.
Now back in Scotland, aster & bay is run by Erin and her husband Glen out of an old biscuit factory in Edinburgh. Whether it's sourcing local herbs from the Highlands or sea salt from the British coastline, aster & bay is still rooted in the spirit of whole plant ingredients, minimalism, and craft.
