September 30th National Mud Pack Day

There are certain things in life that make you go, hmm… I am not sure who first thought, “Hey, I’m going to put mud all over my face because I think it will help my skin to make me look younger!” Most of us would probably decline the offer, but there are those who pay a lot to have that done to them in spas.


I am sure that the rocks surrounding her head are significant as well. In the old days, soldiers would often cover themselves with mud to camouflage into the ground. I can just imagine them hiding, waiting to ambush whoever they were fighting against and one soldier turning to the other and asking, “Does this stuff make me look younger? I certainly feel younger.”


The Vikings, among others, found that covering themselves up in mud protected them from sunburn and bugs. Of course, they were probably covering themselves with  bugs as well but that doesn’t count. Perhaps they discovered the youthful agents in mud, after all… you never really see old looking Vikings (never mind that they normally didn’t live much past their thirties).

And if it’s good for your face, why not the entire body! Perhaps that’s how mud wrestling came about! Well, maybe it works, maybe it only works in someone’s mind, but there seem to be a lot of women who swear by the process, who am I to argue.


After all, our furry best friends have been practicing the art since time began.

How to celebrate – Get a mud facial. Dive into a pool of mud and relax. Explore different uses for mud.
