Bentonite Clay History, Benefits & Uses
Bentonite Clay also known as Montmorillonite is known to have an abundance of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron and potassium. Researchers report that several traditional cultures living in regions of the Andes, Central Africa, and here in Australia have used Bentonite Clay for centuries. Many animals will instinctively turn to eating dirt and clay to help remove poisons from their systems, or during times of illness or distress.
Bentonite Clay is negatively charged attracting and binding toxins. It swells like a highly porous sponge when mixed with water. Toxins are drawn into the sponge through electrical attraction, and once there, they are bound. Free radicals are the other culprit when it comes to skin damage. Free radicals can damage the skin by trying to grab an extra electron from atoms in the skin. When atoms are taken away from molecules in the skin, it causes damage to our skin's DNA that can speed along skin aging. This is called the "free radical theory of aging. Can we somehow intervene and halt the cascade of free radicals?
Enter Bentonite Clay! Bentonite is negatively charged, and so provides the electrons the free radicals seek for stability. Free radicals no longer roam free causing molecular and cellular damage.
Bentonite Clay Relief for Skin Conditions
Blend 1 part Bentonite to 2 parts water, and apply to the skin as a clay pack. Bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin & within pores are drawn out, and bound to the clay. Keep the pack on for about 20 minutes before removing with warm water. For facials, apply a clay mask once or twice per week for best results. This helps to prevent adverse skin conditions.
Skin Poultice for Bites/Burns/Cuts/Stings
Blend Bentonite Clay with water to a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 and apply to the effective area, covering with a bandage or gauze, leaving it to draw toxins, and help heal the skin. Change every 2-3hrs.
A Clay Bath
When adding Bentonite Clay to a bath it is best to run the bath water, and gradually sprinkle the clay over and across the warm water, stirring and mixing it into the water.
How much Bentonite Clay to use for Bath or Foot Soak ?
How much you use is really up to you. 1 - 4 cups per bath, soaking for 20 minutes is a refreshing topical body therapy to soften skin and replenish pores as the clay binds to skin toxins and free radicals.
Or you could go ‘all out’ and enjoy a mud bath in your own home by adding lots of Bentonite to bath water.
Foot soaks are great too, if you don’t have a bathtub, in which case use ½ cup of Bentonite Clay blended into warm water.
Or how about a full body mud-pack !
You will need a dedicated space for this as it can be rather messy, a bench to lie on, towels, lots of blended bentonite topped with an adventurous spirit and a friend with the same ! In a large bowl blend Bentonite and water to a consistency of mud. Lie on the bench whilst your friend applies the mud all over your body. After 15-20 minutes the clay can be washed off. Your skin should feel revitalised, refreshed, tingle and feel silky soft. Replenish by drinking ample pure water afterwards.
Use as Talc Powder
Sprinkle a small amount of Bentonite Clay onto irritated skin as you would with traditional talc powders, such as baby powder. Leave for several minutes before wiping or rinsing off.
Improves the Health of Teeth & Gums
Bentonite Clay binds to toxins and bacteria in the mouth that envelop teeth, gums and the tongue. It can be used as you would toothpaste or as a mouthwash. If using as a mouthwash blend 2 teaspoons into a cup of water, store in a glass jar, and use as mouthwash.
- Best not to store Bentonite in metal containers as this could reduce its potency.
- For easier blending sprinkle Bentonite Clay into the water gradually, mixing as you go. It will hydrate more evenly. Best to not add the water to the clay.
