Bentonite Clay - Aged Volcanic Ash
DETOXIFYING & HEALING FOR PROBLEM SKIN
Bentonite has been used for hundreds of years as an effective, all natural healing clay. When Bentonite comes in contact with a toxin, chemical, or heavy metal, the clay draws out and absorbs the toxins, releasing minerals to the body to use. Bentonite has a powerful negative charge which bonds readily to the positive charge in many toxins; avoid metal utensils or bowls when mixing your Bentonite Clay as this negates the charge and makes it less effective. Use as a detoxifying facial to deep clean pores and smooth the skin. Good for skin irritations, blemishes, insect bites, cuts, itching, and burns. Can be especially calming to skin itching from eczema, psoriasis, chicken pox and poison ivy. Measuring scoop (one tablespoon) included.

Instructions for Use:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not let Bentonite come into contact with anything metal, as this will reduce the effectiveness of the treatments. Warning: For external use only - do not ingest.
BENTONITE CLAY FACIAL – Mix one tablespoon (scoopful) of clay with a tablespoon of warm water to make a smooth paste. If the mixture is too thin, add more clay, if too thick, add more water. Apply a medium layer to the face and upper part of the neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on to dry to allow toxins and any impurities to be drawn to the surface. You will feel the skin grow tight as the mask dries. Remove the mask first by gently rubbing in a circular motion with water for an overall exfoliation. Wash off any excess mud mask with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. If desired, apply a small amount of Best of Nature Rose Water or Vitamin E Oil to finish off the treatment. This treatment is especially effective on acne-prone skin.
BENTONITE POULTICE FOR BUG BITES, STINGS OR BURNS – Create a poultice by adding warm water to a small amount of Bentonite Clay (the amount depends upon the area to be treated). Apply to the problem area and wrap a wet gauze or cloth over it and leave on for an hour or two. You can also add a very small amount of body oil such as Olive, Almond or Avocado to the mixture to nourish the skin. As the mixture dries it is normal to feel a tightening of the skin – this is where Bentonite excels! – as it draws out the toxins and quickly heals the area. Wash area with warm water and pat dry with a towel.
BENTONITE POULTICE FOR PROBLEM SKIN & RASHES – For discomfort due to eczema, psoriasis, and rashes from chicken pox or poison ivy, mix a small amount of Bentonite with warm water to make a paste. Test on a small area first. Apply Bentonite/water mixture and leave on until it dries. Wash off with warm water and pat dry with a towel.
BENTONITE MUD PACK FOR BACK ACNE – Mix a small amount of Bentonite with warm water to make a paste. If desired add a few drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil (excellent for acne) to the recipe. Lie on your stomach and have someone apply a medium layer to the area of back being treated. Leave on until the mixture dries. You will feel a tightening of the skin – this is normal and means the Bentonite is drawing the oil and impurities from the skin. Once dry, wash off in the shower and towel dry. Apply one to three times a week until acne clears.
BENTONITE DETOXIFYING BATH – Mix 6 to 8 scoops of Bentonite in a warm bath. Use a whisk if desired to mix the Bentonite thoroughly into the water. Soak for 15 to 30 minutes for a relaxing, detoxifying, skin softening bath. Towel dry and apply a moisturizer.
BENTONITE DETOXIFYING FOOT BATH – Mix 4 scoops of Bentonite in a foot bath (any container will do as long as it’s not metal and it’s big enough for your feet to fit comfortably) of warm water. Use a whisk if desired to mix Bentonite thoroughly into water. Soak for 15 to 30 minutes for a relaxing, detoxifying foot bath. Towel dry your feet and apply a moisturizer.
BENTONITE DETOXIFYING FOOT MASK – Mix two tablespoons (scoopfuls) of clay with two tablespoons of warm water to make a smooth paste. If the mixture is too thin, add more clay, if too thick, add more water. Apply a thick layer to the soles of your feet. You won’t be able to walk around so you can try hanging your feet over the arm of a chair or anything similar which works for your comfort. Leave on to dry to allow toxins and any impurities to be drawn to the surface. You will feel the skin grow tight as the mask dries. Remove the mask first by gently rubbing in a circular motion with water for an overall exfoliation. Wash off any excess mud mask with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a towel. Apply a moisturizer.
