Bentonite Clay is a natural sedimentary clay (Montmorillonite) created from ancient deposits of volcanic ash. It is Calcium Bentonite and has a Ph of 8.5, Trading Standards do not classify any Clays as food grade anymore. Bentonite Clay can also be used externally as a clay poultice, mud pack or in the bath and as a face mask and general skin care recipes. Many Cleansing products have come and gone over the years, while Bentonite Clay is still here, getting results consistently.
Calcium Bentonite Clay (100% Pure)
Adults for general health maintenance: Mix 1 heaping teaspoon of Bentonite Clay in a large glass of pure water or juice and drink once daily. Alternatively, a heaped teaspoon can be added to a litre of clean water (glass bottle) and sipped throughout the day. Or as directed by your healthcare practitoner, do not exceed recommended daily intake.
Children: Take 1/2 teaspoon per 50lbs of bodyweight. Do not exceed the recommended dose.
Face Mask: For smooth and healthy skin, make a paste of Bentonite and water and apply to face as a mask (a similar mask is used in many spas). Leave on for 10-20 minutes and wash off with warm water. If you feel a pulling and tightening sensation, it means the mask is working. Typically do this once or twice a week. Note: You may experience slight redness of the skin directly after removing the mask. This is totally normal and should disappear in about 30 minutes. If you’re nervous about this, perform a spot test elsewhere on your body 24 hours prior to using this mask on your face.
Detox Bath: First we highly recommend using Magnesium Spray as this will massively help detoxification happen. Then add about 1/4 cup of Bentonite Clay to a bath for a relaxing detox bath that softens skin.
Bentonite Clay Foot Baths: While not quite as effective as a full body soak, are proving to be very beneficial as well. So, if you can't do a full body clay bath, a Calcium Bentonite foot bath is the next best thing. To prepare your clay foot bath, you'll need a plastic tub. Most people prefer a container that's deep, in which they can submerge their whole foot. Do not use a metal tub because the metal will react badly to the clay. A plastic shoe box or even a five-gallon plastic bucket will work fine. Place a towel on the floor to catch any splashes and set your tub on the towel. Fill the tub about 50-60% with warm water. Add half a cup of Calcium Bentonite Clay or more and whisk it around until it's fully dissolved. Submerge your feet and relax for 15-30 minutes. If some of the clay settles to the bottom of the tub, that's fine. You can wiggle your feet a bit to mix it back into the water. After your foot soak, dry your feet and apply a natural moisturiser.
For Hair: As a shampoo replacement Bentonite Clay may also be used as a shampoo trapping and removing dirt, debris, build-up and other particles from your hair and scalp.
Mix 1 to 2 parts Bentonite Clay.
Skin Poultice for Bites/Burns/Cuts/Stings: For more severe issues, create a poultice by putting a thick layer of clay on the skin and applying a wet gauze or cloth over it. Wrap the area and leave the poultice on, changing every 2 hours.
Store in a cool, dark place out of reach of children
