This Bentonite clay is formed under sea beds from volcanic ash. It is harvested from a natural deposit in Australia, dried and then milled producing a finely ground soft powder. No chemicals have been used during the processing – resulting in clay that is Certified organic.
Sodium Bentonite clay is negatively charged and can be used to assist in detoxing. It can be added to drinks, used as a mouth wash, applied to the skin or utilised in the bath.
Bentonite clay can be used externally in many ways or consumed orally.
How to use -
Make a clay pack for the face or body; with a paste of 1 part clay to 2 parts water. Apply for 20 minutes, before washing clay off with warm water.
The same paste (or a 1:1 ratio) can be applied as a poultice for stings, bites, minor cuts and the like. Apply to the affected area and cover with a clean cloth or gauze for up to 2-3 hours.
A foot bath can be prepared using 4 spoons of Bentonite and soaking for 20 min. Remove any clumps of clay before emptying the bath. Remember to rehydrate by drinking fresh water.
Bentonite clay should not be stored in a metal container and metal utensils use only the wooden spoon provided so it doesn’t lose any of its values.
