Once the minerals and their benefits were discovered I began experimenting with levels and combinations and used myself as a crash text dummy until the formula was perfected. I’m really happy with the results and my skin has never felt younger or healthier.
If you’re keen to get your hands on it, and want to know if this natural skincare is for you, firstly let me share with you some of it’s benefits.

Lightning Ridge Volcamin is a high in silica and it’s also high in negative ions that are a major positive for your skin. Negative ions are a deep skin cleanser because they act like a magnet attracting positively charged dirt, oils, and bacteria. Although its super fine it absorbs water so the particles turn into a fantastic scrub. As an exfoliator, it gently removes dirt, dead skin cells, makeup, and pore-clogging environmental toxins. It also settles down rosacea with great results.
So, the biggest question now – how to use it?
It’s simple! As a mask, just add water to a tablespoon of the mask, apply evenly, leave for ten minutes and then wash it off. As a scrub, work it into a paste with some water and apply it using circular motions, two to three times a week.
After you use it, you’ll notice how soft, glowing and tight your skin feels, along with an overall more youthful appearance. You’ll be feeling instagram-ready all day, hello hash tags #nofilter #nomakeup #earthmask.
I’m so proud of this new product and can’t wait for you to try it out for yourself! This is skincare at it’s most simple and most pure. Two minerals straight from the earth. And that’s it.
Pharmacy and supermarket shelves are packed with a myriad of herbal remedies for common ailments, especially with winter on its way.
On closer inspection these products are mostly derived from non indigenous plants, which have a long history of medicinal use in Europe.
We need to embrace of NZ native plants.
For instance, Murdoch Riley’s book “Maori Healing and Herbal” has pages of medicinal information, reflecting the depth of Maori knowledge developed over centuries of observation and use.
These plant remedies are still widely used today, by both Maori and pakeha (non Maori) the ritual and spiritual aspects are still relevant in Maori communities.
But we don't use them??? I think knowing about their special properties enriches our experience of native plants, and provides another reason to keep biodiversity in Aotearoa.
Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum, or pepper tree)
Kawakawa is an easily recognized shrub, with aromatic, heart-shaped leaves, that grows widely in coastal regions.
Kawakawa gives us a clue as to why the first arrivals here from Polynesia called it that. The leaves are like its relative, kava (Piper methysticum), used widely in the South Pacific, Kava has a narcotic effect.
Kawakawa leaves are highly valued for relieving bronchial complaints. Boil a handful of the fresh, young leaves in a small saucepan of water for 15-20 minutes, then drink half a cup of the liquid to relieve chesty coughs.
To make a distinguished tea, for use as a general tonic, it’s best to dry the leaves first, then use a small quantity in a teapot. It’s very good for relieving indigestion.
The fruits and leaves were chewed for toothache – swallow the saliva and keep the leaf matter in your mouth for some time. (The active ingredient is myristicin, which is related to eugenol, a dental analgesic)
Kawakawa leaves were commonly used in hot baths for rheumatic and arthritic pains.
