Bentonite, also referred to as Montmorillonite, is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays used to treat both external maladies. Bentonite can be used externally as a clay poultice, mud pack or in the bath, and in skin care recipes. It has a very fine, velveteen feel and is odorless and non-staining. Bentonite clay is somewhat different from the other types of clay. When Bentonite is mixed with water, the molecular structure changes and it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge. Its highest power lies in the ability to absorb toxins, impurities, and heavy metals.

Bentonite's structure assist the clay in attracting and soaking up poisons on its exterior wall and then slowly draws them into the interior center of the clay where it is held in a sort of repository. Then finishes the job by "pushing" all these nasty substances such as mucoid plaque out of the body. Bentonite clay can never be absorbed by the body, so it's not poisonous at all.

Its origins are as simple and basic as the old practice of putting mud on a bee sting. The bentonite clay comes from a deposit in the western United States. Generally speaking, bentonite clay is volcanic ash which was deposited in sea water. By modern definition, it is a swelling type bentonite (montmorillonite) in its natural state, with no additives, chemicals, or preservatives. The only processing it undergoes is crushing.

External Use: Because of its naturally soft nature it also makes an invigorating skin and face mask.

To make a facial clay, add distilled water to a small amount of clay until it becomes a paste. Apply with clean fingers to clean skin, let dry 15 to 20 minutes, rinse off with warm water, pat skin dry, repeat once a week if necessary. Remove it with warm water and a face cloth.

Caution: Caution should be exercised as clays may stain fabric. For External Use only. Use glass, pottery or wooden container, (do not use metals).
