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. Trusted for generations, the first recorded use of medicinal clay is on Mesopotamian clay tablets around 2500 B.C. Quality Bentonite Clay contains spectrum of 57 bioavailable ionic minerals. Indigenous peoples around the world still use clay widely, which is related to geophagy.

Calcium Bentonite Clay (100% Pure)
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.
