Legend behind This Soap:

Clay’s rich content of minerals and micro elements have made it into a vital ingredient in many of Armenian traditional wellness recipes. This particular soap contains green clay.
Armenian green clay, known as “GIL” in Ararat Valley and “Kaghchin” in the Gegharkunik Region, is rich in micro elements that have an extraordinary effect on hair.

A particularly notable story took place in the City of Martuni, Gegharkunik Region. In Martuni, a woman lived with exceptionally lush and long hair. When passerby and the villagers acquired about her hair, she only uttered one word: Kaghchin.

According to the woman, her one and only ingredient - for as long as she lived and continues to live - was naturally mined Armenian green clay found nearby.

Clay is said to have supernatural qualities. It absorbs energy from the sun, consumes microelements from the soil, and when bathing in clay, it transfers these elements to the bather, while cleansing the body of toxins and negative energy.

Ancient medical practitioners and doctors always cited the use of “bolus Armena” for it was considered and valued as the best of its kind.

More About Clay

There are many varieties of clay with different colors depending on the chemical composition of the soil. For instance, the most common clays are green, white, gray, yellow, red, blue, black, and pink.

Typically green clay is recommended for external use, while Bentonite clay can be used for heavy metal detoxification as it absorbs heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, lead, and tin. Red clay proves to be a very efficient facial purifying mask, granted your skin type. Mix clay with herbs, fruit or vegetable juice, extracts or olive oil to improve the performance and the action of clay.

White clay is good for hair and oily skin. It also eliminates dandruff.

Yellow clay is rich with iron and potassium. It nourishes the skin with oxygen, has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. Yellow clay has been used to alleviate joint diseases, headaches, osteochondrosis, migraines, and various skin conditions. It is also used for cleansing and detoxifying purposes.

Red clay is very good for acne, applied with lemon juice, it transforms into an ideal mask for face and neck.

    Shipping to East Coast USA slow (I received the item a little over a month after I'd ordered it) but was well worth the wait! The thyme soap I'd requested smells wonderfully herby and woodsy and natural, and looks beautiful. The box is also beautiful, and glazed on the inside so should last well. Everything was packaged very securely, and an enticing soap sample was included. Professional and responsive seller; very unique and evocative item. Thank you so much!
