    CLAY COMPARISONS

    What are the differences between Zeolite, Bentonite, Montmorillonite, Illite, French Green, Pascalite, Redmond, Terramin, Living, Fuller's Earth, Ormalite, Vitallite & Pyrophyllite Clays?
    By Michael King

    Almost all natural clays have value in promoting human health. Some may be consumed, others are best used only externally, and some are best reserved for industrial purposes. Clays in general, provide a wide array of benefits for humanity, whether for the body, in the garden, or for industrial use.

    Each of the edible clays will possess different mineral profiles and electromagnetic properties, and will therefore affect the body somewhat differently. NASA discovered that clay countered the loss of calcium in the bones (common during space flight) better than calcium supplements due to the additional minerals and other properties natural to a clay that improved calcium assimilation.

    Detoxification, mineral nourishment and the natural promotion of the body's own healing processes are common to most clays, though one specific clay may excel in a unique area of application more so than other clays.

    So what are the benefits of the most popular edible clays available today, and which ones stand out when it comes to promoting human health?

    COMMON & NOT SO COMMON CLAYS

    According to Galleries/The Clay Mineral Group, Wikipedia and common geological knowledge: Bentonite is the most abundant of all clays. The term "bentonite"l is a catch-all for numerous variations of smectite absorbent (swelling) clays derived from weathered volcanic ash. A Bentonite often contains a high percentage of Montmorillonite, Illite or Kaolin clays. For the most part Bentonites are classified as Sodium Bentonites, Potassium Bentonites or Calcium Bentonites. The one common characteristic of a Bentonite is that they absorb moisture more so than other clays.

    Calcium Bentonite has a dominant quantity of calcium in its mix of minerals. When the Bentonite has weathered to a microscopic size of 1 micron or less it is referred to as a Montmorillonite. Pascalite, Terramin, Living Clay and Fuller's Earth are Calcium Bentonites or Calcium Montmorillonites. Even though calcium clays are valuable therapeutic clays both internally and externally, given today's high calcium diets coupled with higher than normal levels of environmental toxins (which deplete our magnesium stores), more calcium is not what we need as a dominant factor. A more balanced combination of calcium and magnesium along with 70-plus other minerals is more preferable today as a natural mineral source.

    Sodium Bentonite is the most swelling of the bentonites. It absorbs moisture and swells. For this reason, it makes an excellent lining for a pond to help prevent loss of water, but it is generally not a good idea to put a Sodium Bentonite down the drain after a bath, since it may clog the drain. Bentonites in general, are also hard on the bowels when taken internally, causing constipation, therefore herbal laxatives and bulking agents are recommended when using a Sodium Bentonite for internal detoxification. I find this characteristic counterproductive to the goal of internal cleansing, yet Sodium Bentonite is surprisingly often used for this purpose in the health industry. Redmond Clay and most of the clays sold by LL Magnetic Clay are Sodium Bentonites. Some prefer a slightly laxative clay with a small particle size for maximum detoxification.

    Potassium Bentonite is referred to as a "potash bentonite". It contains a high percentage of Illite Clay. Since it absorbs less moisture than other bentonites, it is commonly used in brick making. It is also used for radioactive waste containment.

    Illite is a member of the Clay-Mica Group of clays referred to as Muscovite (mica) and is a main component of shale. It is naturally abundant in potassium and does not swell with moisture. It is also commonly found as a component in other clays such as Bentonite & Montmorillonite, adding a potassium twist to those clays. French Green Clay is an Illite Clay.

    Zeolite is formed when rolling lava encounters a body of water (such as a lake or the ocean), or when volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Zeolite forms as a volcanic rock which is then milled into a fine powder. It is built of numerous porous channels of irregular shapes which act as a filtering sieve, or container, for heavy metals and toxins. The porous channels attract other minerals or environmental contaminants which must first be purged from the Zeolite before human use. Zeolite is commonly provided as both a liquid and a powder.

    The liquid Zeolite purging process involves several cycles of high heat and rapid cooling, the addition of acids and the addition of a few alkaline minerals (to improve its ionic exchange capability) before it is ready for human use. This purification process produces an average particle size of 1 micron (similar to a montmorillonite). While this extensive purification process produces a decent detoxifying clay for the bloodstream (but not the bowels where the vast majority of body toxins reside), its altered state is less balanced in its mineral profiles than an unheated clay. High heat disturbs Nature's original mineral and biological composition, reducing its value as a nutritive clay. In any case, only a minimal amount of nutritive minerals from a Zeolite are available for assimilation by the body, since a Zeolite does not break down easily in the body. Once heated and processed, what might be provided to the body as mineral nutrition will lack the full spectrum of trace mineral balance naturally provided by other clays.

    This lack of mineral balance in a purified Zeolite is a less than desirable aspect of the clay since minerals in the body are so strongly dependent upon each other to be effectively utilized by the body. The full spectrum of 70-plus minerals are required each time minerals are taken to be sure sufficient mineral balance is maintained. Given the high prevalence of mineral deficiency in our soils and food supply these days, working with a clay that is both detoxifying and nutritive is an important consideration for the "dirt eaters" of the world.

    A 1 micron average size for a processed Zeolite is good for getting into the bloodstream where a good portion of the detoxifying needs to take place, but this can also be accomplished with a Montmorillonite or a Pyrophyllite without altering their original clay structures or mineral profiles.

    Pyrophyllite is also a member of the smectite group of clays and is the basis of Sacred Clay. Pyrophyllite makes one of the most powerful detoxifying clays known, partly due to its balanced mineral profile and partly due to its exceptionally small particle size going down to less than 1/10th of a micron. The smaller the particle size, the greater the surface area for the removal of toxins. Taken as a bulk clay internally, one gets the benefit of both cleansing of the blood and detoxification of the bowels (from where most of the toxins entering the blood are derived).

    Pyrophyllite was formed differently from the other clays mentioned, in that it began as an underground boiling lava soup that decomposed into a clay through an interaction with deep underground aquifer water, steam and pressure. It is believed that the manner in which a Pyrophyllite is made is the reason it possesses stronger detoxifying powers relative to other clays (one former auto mechanic found a 1/8th inch oil slick on the bottom of his first Sacred Clay bath). Sacred Clay's rich electrolyte content (8 electrolytes comprising close to 10 percent of the clay) provides an abundance of free ions acting as antioxidants. Ions are required for rapid transport of toxins out of the cell and efficient transport of nutrients into the cell.

    Because Pyrophyllite easily breaks down in water, it can easily go down your drains after a relaxing clay bath without worry. (I have washed as much as 50 pounds of Sacred Clay down the tub drain without a hitch. It will also help your city sewer and improve biological activity in a septic system. For most people Pyrophyllite Clay is safe to use internally and actually slightly accelerates the bowels. See Sacred Clay Instructions for Use for exceptions, or if you are on pharmaceutical drugs.

    Pyrophyllite Compared To Zeolite

    Zeolite is an excellent clay (I believe Nature has given us a number of great gifts within the clay world), however, Pyrophyllite has certain capabilities that exceed those of the Zeolite family.

    Pyrophyllite is capable of holding toxins to the outside of its molecular structure like iron filings to a magnet (adsorbing), as well as absorb them like a sponge. Pyrophyllite's negative electro-magnetic charge coupled with its abundant electrolyte content reaches deep into the tissues, organs and bloodstream to draw toxins to itself.

    Zeolite is an adsorbing-only clay capable of attracting a large amount of toxins to itself due to the large available surface area within the micro sieve chamber structure of the Zeolite. However, the toxin must be small enough to enter into the chamber structure of Zeolite (less than 2 nanometers) to be carried away in abundance. Larger toxin molecules will cling to the exterior of the chamber, yet are less likely to be removed in cases of toxin saturation due to this limitation.

    Liquid Zeolite does very little to remove toxins in the most toxic organ of our body, the small intestines, where toxin saturation happens the most rapidly. The few drops of liquid Zeolite recommended will absorb directly into the bloodstream and do little to address the intestinal toxicity common to most people today. To remove toxins from the intestines of any significant measure a bulk sediment clay must be consumed. A common recommendation for a clay powder is 1 tablespoonful per day.

    Pyrophyllite is both an adsorbing and an absorbing clay with a donut shaped combination of tetrahedral molecules mimicking the shape of a red blood cell. The geometric shape of a red blood cell constitutes the most efficient shape known for the absorption or disbursement of nutrients.

    Even a powdered Zeolite must be heated to purge it of its accumulated load of environmental toxins. Heating a clay destroys both the clay's natural biological benefits (soil based organisms) and its delicate balance of mineral ratios. While this may be necessary with a Zeolite in order to make room for an additional amount of toxins, Pyrophyllite does not require this purging process to be effective.

    A Zeolite does not offer many minerals to the body, as the micro sieve structure does not easily break down into individual minerals to help the body perform its thousands of chemical/hormonal functions. A Pyrophyllite readily breaks down into its individual mineral components, thereby providing the body with a storehouse of mineral options to choose from in order to build its needed supplies of chemicals and hormones.

    A Side Note On Heating A Clay

    Heating a clay to the melting point of the various metals disturbs the clay's original integrity. Heat is sometimes used to melt away certain "undesirable" elements within a clay, under the mistaken impression that this action will "purify" the clay. Instead, what you are left with is an unnatural assembly of mineral ratios (something Nature did not design), resulting in an end product that, when consumed, requires your own body to compensate for what is now missing in the altered clay. This compensation effect is due to the body's ongoing attempt to create and maintain homeostasis, or balance.

    Disturbing Nature's original balance of mineral ratios, or taking just one mineral at the exclusion of the full, natural complex of 70+ minerals with their naturally-formed mineral ratios, can result in greater imbalances within the body with long-term consequences. A major New Zealand study found that taking the single mineral, calcium citrate, for several years raises the risk of heart attacks by 40 percent. Minerals need each other in naturally-occurring ratios to provide the most effective service to the body.

    Comprehensive Nutritional Content & Bioavailability

    Pyrophyllite is naturally more abundant in both electrolytes and trace minerals than a processed Zeolite, so it provides greater nutritional value to the human body. Unaltered Pyrophyllite has a more balancing effect on the body from a nutritional point of view.

    Pyrophyllite clay is high in amorphous silica (free-form silica not yet structured into quartz), which forms orthosilicic acids when brought in contact with water. Silicic acids are required to make minerals bioavailable to both plant and human. Silicic acids act as ligand escorts for minerals and other nutrients attempting to enter the cell walls. Without a ligand escort, like humic acid, citric acid or silicic acid (among a few alkaline ligands), neither minerals nor phytonutrients (plant-based) are able to pass through the cell wall.

    Taking Clay With Natural Vitamins & Food Sources

    Taking Pyrophyllite clay with natural remedies will actually enhance their mineral and nutrient absorption due to the presence of amorphous (unstructured) silica in the clay. While natural supplements are not recommended in combination with a Bentonite clay due to a concern over drawing beneficial nutrients from the body, an amorphous silica clay (as opposed to a structured quartz silica clay) makes other nutrients more bioavailable. The orthosilicic acids formed out of the amorphous silica are also used by the body to build collagen and slow the aging process.

    Regeneration of Body Tissues

    Bioavailable amorphous silica is required by the body to repair damaged tissues, bone, tendons and cartilage.

    Pyrophyllite clay's observed skin regenerative powers when applied to a cut, a bruise, an inflammation, or a cold sore is truly remarkable. In two instances I observed open wounds on the face being closed and regenerated in less than two weeks without even a scar. Scarless wound repair is best accomplished with the immediate application of clay to the wound, as scars are the direct result of a lack of amorphous silica in the body for collagen development during the early stages of wound healing.

    Ormalite is an angstrom mineral clay, rich in naturally-occurring M-state elements (single atom elements largely from the platinum group). Even amounts less than a pinch have noticeable effects on calming and centering the mind, increasing the meridian flow (chi) around the body and leaving one more in the heart. Due to its activation of the pineal gland (which produces melatonin), sleep is improved when taken before bed, stress during the day is lessened, and a sense of overall well being is increased.

    Observations of Pyrophyllite & Ormalite

    From an observable point of view, we have frequently seen and experienced the reduction of inflammation and swelling following the application of a Manna Mist (concentrated Ormalite water) spray and/or a Sacred Clay poultice, along with a more rapid regeneration of tissue. This indicates that the current research being performed on Sacred Clay and Ormalite may well document some very promising findings.

    Vitallite is a naturally-occurring earthen mineral source (a clay) which nourishes adrenal and endocrine functions in such a way as to increase physical vitality, mental focus, and physical stamina. Vitallite Clay supplies the body with both macro minerals and trace minerals and has the natural soothing effects of an ormus (angstrom element) clay similar to Ormalite Clay, only not as concentrated.

    To grasp some of the implications of what a powerful nourishing, detoxifying, health building clay can do for the human body, the following article offers insight into the possibilities: Sacred Clay Instructions for Use.

    Is it possible Mother Nature has provided an answer to many of our conditions all along in the form of natural clays, and we are just now discovering them?


    calcium & sodium bentonite clay


    BENTONITE CLAY (Montmorillonite)

    Bentonite Clay, also called Montmorillonite clay, is a clay composed of weathered and aged volcanic ash. This absorbent clay was given the name Bentonite by an American geologist sometime after its discovery in about 1890. It was found in upper cretaceous tuff near Fort Benton, Wyoming where numerous volcanos are present, so the name of the clay stems from the town where today much of the supply is still havested. The largest and most active deposits come from Wyoming and Montana. The other name that bentonite clay is typically given is Montmorillonite clay. Montmorillonite is the main determining ingredient in the Bentonite Clay. This mineral obtains its name from a deposit at Montmorillon, in Southern France. This is where the medicinal mineral was first identified. Today the clay is harvested mostly in The US, France, and Italy. "Bentonite" is actually the trade name that the clay has been given, but people for the most part speak about Montmorillonite and Bentonite clay interchangeably and are referring to the same product. Sometimes mineralogists use the term Smectite instead to describe the same substance.

    Bentonite clay stems back far in history as a traditional healing method for protecting the body from disease. It has been reported that several traditional cultures living in regions of the Andes, Central Africa and Australia have consumed clays in numerous ways for centuries. Because the clay is readily available and required no modern processing, it has been a popular and cost-effective way of "detoxing" the body for quite some time. Bentonite clay is a clay that is mined from the earth, and it is formed after volcanic ash has weathered and aged in the presence of water. It has a strong negative electromagnetic charge, and when activated by water, it acts like a magnet in and on our bodies, pulling metals and toxins to it. It also has an affect on the body’s pH and provides the body with some vital minerals at the same time.

    Bentonite was used in the Balkan war of 1910 to reduce mortality from cholera among the soldiers. Russian scientists use Bentonite to protect their bodies from radiation when working with nuclear material, by coating their hands and bodies with a hydrated Bentonite "mama" before putting on the radiation suits. It absorbs radiation so well, that it was the choice material used to dump into Chernobyl after the nuclear meltdown in the former Soviet Union. Bentonite clay is taking off as a wellness trend among people who are looking to help "detoxify" their bodies and defend against illnesses. While it’s been used for centuries around the world to promote better health and ward off disease, this healing clay recently gained some spotlight in the US and Europe as a trusted product that can be added to any detoxification program.

    VARIETIES OF BENTONITE CLAY

    This clay comes in different varieties depending upon which elements are most concentrated in it, potassium, sodium, calcium, and aluminum, but the two most commercially available types are sodium bentonite and calcium bentonite. Bentonite clay is a very unique substance, formed primarily of Montmorillonite, which is an extremely flat crystal flake, that carries a relatively strong negative ionic charge. The negative charge is compensated for by adsorbing a cation (either Sodium or Calcium) to the interior of the molecule, this is what makes it either Sodium Bentonite or Calcium Bentonite clay.

    Another way to visualize it is to think of the Montmorillonite crystal flake resembling two pieces of bread, with a strong vacuum pulling the sandwich filling (calcium or sodium) in between the bread slices (crystal flake layers), whatever lands there (Sodium or Calcium) determines what kind of sandwich it will be. Now when you activate this clay sandwich it will magnetically grab the toxic junk in your body (heavy metals and such) and trade them for the "sandwich filling" lunch meat” taking the toxins out in your waste, exchanging the filling (calcium or sodium) for the toxic substance. The calicium or sodium is then left behind in the body while the toxin is removed from the body with the crystal flake "sandwich". The two different clays although very similar in their inert state (dry) have very different applications when activated (mixed with water). The main differences in these two varieties is that the sodium bentonite is best for detoxing purposes as it has a stronger negative charge which causes it to pull more toxins into it whereas the calcium bentonite clay is better at remineralizing the body with calcium and silica.

    BENTONITE CLAY QUALITY

    When looking for a good quality bentonite clay, there are a couple of things to consider. First, look into the company you are buying your clay from. Research them and be sure that they are active in where they source their clay from and test the quality of it. Remember that this clay acts as a magnet and you do not want it absorbing toxins from nearby sources and then putting it on or in your body. Use only reliable sources that are particular about the quality of their products. The next thing to research is to find out how the bentonite clay is mined. Since bentonite clay acts as a magnet for positively charged toxins (which the majority of toxins are), the equipment that the clay is mined with matters. You are never supposed to use metal utensils with your bentonite clay because the metals can leach from the utensil and be pulled into the clay. This fills the clay up with those positively charged metals and means your clay will practically be useless by the time you use it since it is already full of the metals from the utensil you used. The same goes with when it is being mined. You want fully active clay. Not clay that is already half full of metals from the mining process. Stainless steel mining equipment is supposedly a good option and does not cause heavy metal leaching into the clay.

    EUROPEAN CLAY (Montmorillonite)

    European Clay Powder is described as a 100% Montmorillonite, which is a natural mineral silicate that is designed for normal, combination and oily skin types in need of detoxification, as well as smaller pore size. Apparently, this mask will help draw out impurities from the pores and remove debris from under the skin, decreasing pore size and improving skin tone. European Montmorillonite Clay powder is 100% pure and natural and can be mixed with water and customized to your specific skin type. This mask will help draw out impurities from the pores and remove debris from under the skin, decreasing pore size and improving skin tone.

    REDMOND CLAY (Sodium Bentonite)

    Redmond Clay is an old “Home Remedy” that generations of people have used for a variety of ailments. Redmond Clay’s origins are as old as the practice of putting a mud poultice on a bee sting. Geologically, Redmond Clay is volcanic ash that was deposited in sea water approximately 150 million years ago. Technically, Redmond Clay is a swelling-type sodium bentonite. Redmond Minerals brings this "clay of a thousand uses" to market in its natural state with no additives, chemicals or preservatives. The only processing it undergoes is crushing and screening. Redmond Clay Stomach Health to help support healthy digestion. For many years, people have taken Redmond Clay when they have had occasional diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, stomachache, acid indigestion, acid reflux, and other severe digestive problems. Packed in 100% vegetable-based capsules.

    FRENCH GREEN CLAY (Illite)

    Even though it bears the name French Green Clay, not all French Green Clay comes from France. The French controlled production of the clay and world markets soon named it for the French’s success with it. Worldwide popularity and booming financial prospects led other quarries to seek out clay deposits with very similar properties to that of French Green Clay.

    Today, even though the green clay comes from many different places, it is still called French Green Clay. It contains many valuable elements including montmorillonite, mineral oxides, magnesium, calcium, potassium, dolomite, silica, manganese, phosphorous, silicon, copper, and selenium. French Green Clay also contains iron oxides and decomposed plant matter, which gives clay its green color.French Green Clay has enormous absorbent powers due to the constitution of its micro molecules. It literally "drinks" oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin by bringing fresh blood to damaged skin cells, revitalizing the complexion, and tightening pores. French Green Clay is marvelous for helping to clear problem skin. Use it daily on trouble spots, or weekly as part of a complete facial treatment. Mined from bedrock quarries in France and is a processed rock and mineral content., it is completely natural, unscented and fragrance free. Suggested for external use only with a shelf life of 4 to 5 years to indefinite.

    The line of French Green clay offered by Mountain Rose Herbs is quarry mined from naturally occurring deposits and is untreated, with a beautiful light green color with a soft gray hue, flat odor and soft texture. Typical mineral content consists of Silica (50.6%), Aluminum (14.1%), Magnesium (2.25%), Calcium (9.2%), Iron (4.8%), Titanium (0.71%), Phosphorus (0.12%), Sodium (0.18%), and Potassium (4.2%).

    French Green Clay also sometimes traded as Sea Clay is by far one of the most majestic, most effective, and most commonly used mineral skin clays found throughout our global community. French Green Clay (AKA Illite Clay or Sea Clay) contains a cornucopia of valuable elements, which include montmorillonite, several (up to 9) important mineral oxides, magnesium, calcium, potassium, dolomite, silica, manganese, phosporous, silicon, copper, and selenium. Green clay owes its coloration to 2 very important factors, which ultimately decide a good quality clay from a poor quality clay. They are, iron oxides, and decomposed plant matter. The natural green tones found in this luxurious clay are from the very cycles of life this earth uses to regenerate itself. When purchasing French Green Clay it is of utmost importance that it is truly green, or off green in color. French Green Clay cannot be white or gray in color.

    Unlike other clays where key elements work in symbiosis off of each other, French Green contains several elements which act as their own "body". In French Green Clay, each element is responsible for working the outer epidermis (skin) in its own way and in dispensing their biological constituents as best as possible.

    Not all French Green Clay comes from France. While Mountain Rose Herbs stocks a beautiful imported Green Clay from France, there have seen several French Green varieties from Wyoming, Montana, China and some European countries.

    At one time the French Quarries controlled the production for the little market they knew as "Green Clay", and enjoyed this unhampered success. because this was going on for so long, the world's market decided to coin the term "French Green Clay" because all of the green colored facial clays were coming from this country. After a surge in worldwide popularity and booming financial prospects, several other quarries realized they had deposits very similar to that of some of the major French exporters. So, needless to say many other players have come onto the field for a little bit of the French Green action, and regardless of where it comes from, it appears as if the world will still refer to it as "French" Green Clay.

    French Green Clay is quarry mined from deposits that can range anywhere from 100 feet to several thousand feet. This depends on the health and vitality of the land it is on and how far a producer will have to go to find the right clay with the right color and consistency. From here it is mined and brought out into the sun to remove excess water and moisture and to make it easier to work with. Now begins the final transformation as it gets heavily processed (ground) with huge hydraulic crushers and then micronized (finely pulverized) with more micromanaged, fine mesh equipment. After it is processed, it is laid out in the sun one more time to dry in hopes of removing the final amounts of moisture.

    Green Clay, also known as illite, is an organic powerhouse comprised of iron oxides, decomposed plant material (such as kelp and seaweed), and a host of essential minerals! It was called French Green Clay for centuries, being named after the rock quarries in the south of France that yielded most of the world's illite deposits, however our European Green Clay is mined from the pristine shores of Italy! Green Clay is used in alternative health practices for its wealth of benefits, both Internally & externally! European Green Clay is helpful when used internally for individuals suffering from:
    • Ulcers & heartburn.
    • Iron deficiency.
    • Diarrhea & constipation.
    • Parasites.
    • Heartburn & reflux.
    • Stomach bugs.
    • Intestinal disorders.
    • pH imbalance.
    • Poor bowel health.
    • Mineral deficiencies.
    • Heavy metal toxicity.
    • Irritability & mood swings.
    • Toxicity due to chemicals or poisons.

    EUROPEAN GREEN CLAY (Monmorillonite)

  • Vital Minerals: The mineral content of Green Clay is extraordinary, including but not limited to: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, silicon, selenium, iron, copper, and cobalt. Drinking a clay and water mixture delivers these mineral nutrients to the body, while simultaneously removing dangerous toxins like heavy metals, free radicals, and environmental pollutants. Raymond Dextreit, a French naturopath, claimed that the minerals in Green Clay provide natural power: copper battles infections, selenium boosts liver function, cobalt benefits blood disorders, and all the minerals together work to slow the aging process and balance the body's natural equilibrium!

  • Detoxification & Cleansing: The detoxification properties of Green Clay are widely revered by alternative health practitioners and environmental managers. According to a study published in the journal, Clay Minerals, the absorption of different clays was studied, and Green Clay was found to be the most ideal and cost-effective way to clean heavy metals from industrial wastewater. It works the same way when taken internally to clean your digestive system and eliminate toxins. Green Clay is beneficial for removing toxins which can build up and cause many physical symptoms such as food allergies, headaches, digestive problems, and general fatigue or lethargy. Green Clay has a natural negative electrical charge which pulls positively charged toxins from the bloodstream and tissue cells into the intestine and sends them out of the body as waste.

  • Green Clay & Menstrual Cramps: Menstrual cramps are helped both internally and externally with Green Clay. Women who are suffering can drink the water and clay mixture for the first three weeks of their menstrual cycle. During menstruation, it is recommended to take a break from the clay mixture and instead apply a warm Green Clay poultice over the lower abdomen. This helps reduce cramping and pain that often accompany menses.

  • European Green Clay is helpful when used externally for individuals suffering from:
    • Burns, cuts, & scrapes.
    • Unwanted cell growth.
    • Almost all skin conditions.
    • Painful & swollen joints.
    • Poor gum or dental health.
    • Unsightly scar tissue.
    • Ulcers or tunneling wounds.
    • Rashes including poison ivy, oak, and sumac.
    • Acute injuries such as sprains and strains.
    • Bug, spider, or snake bites or stings.
    • Fungal growths.

  • European Green Clay For First Aid: As a soothing, repairing balm for cuts, scrapes, small wounds, sprains, minor burns, insect bites, and aching muscles, Green Clay can be made into a poultice and applied directly to the affected area. The clay works for cuts, scrapes, and wounds by drawing out the infection. It is said to be comforting for aching muscles and joints, especially when combined with the essential oils of rosemary or lavender. To make a first aid paste, pour 1/4 cup pure water into a glass bowl and sprinkle clay on top until a nice paste consistency is formed. Make sure it is dry enough to hold form but moist enough to not dry out. Apply to the area and cover so that it retains moisture. Do not let the clay dry out. After 2 to 4 hours, remove poultice and gently rinse if not too painful. Wait two hours and then repeat.

  • When individuals with severe burns had the burned area covered with a poultice of clay, each one noticed immediate relief, with some claiming the pain had subsided completely. In addition, when having the entire body covered in burns, laying in a clay bath provided dramatic results! Burn victims reported a major relief of pain and faster wound repair with less scarring than with conventional methods.

    MORACCAN RED CLAY (Illite)

    Moroccan Red Ilite Clay is an all-natural powder clay that is highly absorbent and mixes easily with water and other moisturizing products. It serves as an excellent facial cleanser and purifying masque, especially for individuals with sensitive skin.

    PASCALITE (Calcium Bentonite)

    The Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming is the only place in the world where Pascalite exists. The Big Horn Mountains, called the Shining Mountains by early explorers, are an isolated range midway between the Black Hills and Yellowstone, with peaks reaching as high as 13,000 feet. The Big Horns were favorites of the Indians, and offer modern explorers of the American Outback many out-of-the-way delights.

    The Pascalite is hand mined in the summer from the high mountains, then it is solar dried over the fall/winter/spring. The following summer it is bagged up and hauled into town where it is ground into a powder.

    The Pascalite has not been washed or cleaned, only solar dried in an enclosed building. It is 100% pure. Solar dried Pascalite retains the enzymes. Many clays are heat processed. Solar dried Pascalite is more powerful and superior to the other processed clays. Pascalite clay is a calcium based bentonite. Bentonite is GRAS by the FDA. (Pascalite has not been evaluated by the FDA.)

    FULLER'S EARTH CLAY

    A sedimentary clay that has been widely used as a skin-lightening agent and is best known for its ability to be applied as a "facial bleach". Because of its enormous drawing capabilities, Fuller's Earth is the number one choice for oily skin and those prone to acne. It literally draws oil from the skin and has been used industrially for this exact purpose. Also works nicely as a bulk ingredient for skin clay recipes.


    RHASSOUL CLAY

    A truly exquisite Spa quality clay mined from ancient deposits unearthed from the fertile Atlas mountains of Morocco since the eighth century. Rhassoul is a mineral rich clay that blends extremely well with water to clean the body and has been used by Moroccan women for centuries to care for their skin and hair.

    A water and Rhassoul clay mixture application to the face and skin makes a smooth and delightful experience. The best Spas across the globe utilize the toning and enriching benefits offered by Rhassoul and now it is just as easy to enjoy this splendor within your own home. High in Silica, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Sodium content, this clay is surely one of the finest treasures for the pampering of your skin.


    WHITE COSMETIC KAOLIN CLAY (Kaolinite)

    White Cosmetic Kaolin, also known as White Cosmetic Clay, is the most versatile and easily applied clay that is most commonly found in standard skincare preparations and cosmetics. White Cosmetic Clay which is also traded as White Kaolin Clay is a very fine and light clay that has natural absorbency properties and is frequently found in powders, body packs, skin care products, and deodorants.

    Kaolinite has a low shrink-swell capacity and a low cation-exchange capapcity. It is a soft, earthy, usually white mineral produced by the chemical weathering of aluminum silicate minerals like feldspar. In many parts of the world, it is colored pink-orange-red by iron oxide, giving it a rust hue. Lighter concentrations yield white, yellow or light orange colors.

    Kaolin is used in toothpaste, cosmetics, for facial masks or soap. Medicinally it is used to induce blood clotting in diagnostic procedures (Kaolin clotting time) and to soothe an upset stomach. Kaolinite preparatons were common for the treatment of diarrhea, the most common of these was Kaopectate, which abandoned the use of kaolin in favor of attapulgite and then bismuth subsalicylate (the active ingredient in Pepto Bismol). Other western medicines were Rolaids and Maaloxm but is no longer present in them nor in similar preparations as it is considered ineffective by the USFDA.





    CLAY USES, HEALTH BENEFITS, & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    TYPES OF CLAY USES

    BENTONITE CLAY (Montmorillonite)

    Bentonite, also referred to as Montmorillonite, is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays used to treat both internal and external ailments. Bentonite contains high concentrations of iron, magnesium and silicon. Bentonite Clay is one of the most effective natural intestinal detoxifying agents available. Bentonite attracts and neutralizes poisons in the intestinal tract. Bentonite clay normally comes in a gray or cream color, not a bright white color which can indicate that it may have gone bad. The clay should also be odorless and not have much of any taste at all.

    Bentonite is a swelling clay. When it becomes mixed with water it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge. Once this is started, from here the toxins are drawn into the sponge through electrical attraction and once there, they stick. Many people reported that after using Bentonite for a two to four week period they experienced improved intestinal regularity, relief from chronic constipation, indigestion, diarrhea and ulcers. There is virtually no digestive disease that the clay will not treat or assist in treating. They also had increased physical energy, clearer complexion, brighter eyes, increased resistance to infections, enhanced emotional state, and improved tissues and gums.

    Bentonite can assist in eliminating food allergies, food poisoning, mucus colitis, spastic colitis, viral infections, stomach flu and parasites (parasites are unable to reproduce in the presence of clay). It absorbs toxic radiation, cancer treatment, cell phones, microwaves, x-rays, just to begin with. In traditional medicine, Bentonite is used as an antidote in heavy metal poisoning. It is also used in personal care products, mudpacks, sunburn paint, baby and face powders and face creams may all contain Bentonite.

    Drawing Out Toxins

    We come into contact with a range of toxins numerous times every day, as toxins are given off from common products like paint, cleaning supplies, markers, substances used in building homes, low-quality unpurified water, and even pesticides that are widely sprayed regions that have farming present. It is quite common to inject a range of different toxins just by breathing in the fumes that are present all around us, not to mention the toxins that we receive from an unhealthy diet filled with low-quality processed foods.

    "Heavy metal toxins" usually refer to substances like Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, and benzene. These can be found in the products previously mentioned, and also in foods that contain high fructose corn syrup or certain types of fish. Bentonite clay benefits your body by helping to expel many of these toxins and therefore increases immunity and reduces inflammation.

    On top of being able to draw-out toxins from the body, the clay itself has a range of nutrients. Bentonite clay is known to have an abundance of minerals including Calcium, Magnesium, Silica, Sodium, Copper, Iron, and Potassium. When ingested into the body, either in a drink form or by eating the clay, its vitamins and minerals are absorbed similarly to how a supplement would be. Therefore some people use it as a supplement since the clay is a natural source of important dietary nutrients.

    Also bentonite clay benefits the body because it has the ability to produce a charge that is electrical in nature when it comes in contact with liquid. When the clay touches any type of fluid (normally water) it takes on a different charge and is thought to bind to any present toxins within the fluid. While bentonite clay naturally has negatively charged electrons intact, most toxins and heavy metals have positively charged electrons. This allows the two to bind together easily and stay united while the toxin removal process happens. Bentonite clay essentially "seeks" toxins in the body to bind with because naturally any substance that has a missing ion (which gives it its "charge") looks for oppositely charged types of substances that will make it complete. Upon binding, the clay is then able to help remove toxins, chemicals, impurities, and "heavy metals" from the gut, skin, and mouth that it is bound to. Bentonite clay absorbs the liquids that is comes into contact with and expands to extract toxins from the liquid.

    Bentonite Clay Benefits & Uses

  • Skin Health: Bentonite is used on the sking to help heal eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. When combined with water and left to dry on the skin as a clay mask, the clay is able to bind to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores to extract these from the pours. This helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes, alleviate redness, and also to fight allergic reactions from irritating lotions or face washes, and even helps help poison ivy. Thanks to the clay’s special ability to act as an antibiotic treatment when applied topically to the skin, the clay can help to calm skin infections and speed up healing time of wounds, even when prescription antibiotics were not able to help solve the problem.

  • Bath: Bentonite is used in the bath as a soaking liquid to remove toxins. The clay binds to the toxins that are dispelled from your skin. The clay leaves the skin feeling smooth, hydrated, and less inflamed, all while you relax in the tub effortlessly. Great for irritated skin problems and skin itching.

  • Oxygenated Cells: Bentonite clay helps to get oxygen into the cells because it has the ability to pull excess hydrogen from the cells, leaving room for oxygen to take its place. When cells have more oxygen entering them, you feel more energized and your body can repair itself more easily from illness or hard workouts.

  • Body Alkalizing: Many foods in the conventional American diet have an acidic reaction in the body, meaning they alter the body's preferred pH level to make it more acidic than we would like it to be. The less healthy someone's diet is, normally the more acidic their body is. This is the case because the stomach needs to work extra hard to produce strong acids in order to break down these foods, creating the need for even more alkalizing foods to balance things out. Proper digestion requires enzymes that are made from alkalizing minerals, so when alkalizing foods do not enter the body, acidity remains high and digestion suffers. Bentonite clay contains alkalizing minerals in contrast, which brings the level of the body's pH to a more optimal balance between acidity and alkalinity, helping to make the blood, saliva and urine more alkaline.

  • Improves Digestion: By removing toxins, digestive-distress causing chemicals, and heavy metals from the gut, bentonite clay helps to promote the "good bacteria" or probiotics living in your gut wall and to decrease the amount of harmful "bad bacteria". A healthy gut wall prevents us from experiencing malabsorption of nutrients from our food, increases our immunity, and also helps to elevate our mood and brain function. Research has also shown that bentonite clay can bind to particular toxins like “aflatoxins” that are common in the standard diet, found in things like peanuts and some grains. When left unattended, an influx of aflatoxins can contribute to liver damage and potentially even the onset of certain cancers. Because of bentonite clay's negatively charged electrons, it is able to withstand acids found in the gut and to survive long enough to bind to toxins.
  • Relieves Digestive Upsets: Bentonite has the ability to neutralize bacteria in the cut and kill viruses, bentonite clay helps to alleviate many digestive problems. It is often used as relief for nausea and vomiting by pregnant women, is a safe way to remedy constipation, and helps with IBS. Results from one study carried out in 1998 showed that bentonite clay was extremely successful at absorbing harmful rotavirus and caronavirus toxins within the gut of young mammals. Rotaviruses are one of the leading causes of gastrointestinal distress, such as diarrhea and nausea, in infants and toddlers. Bentonite clay benefits your pets as well! It is safe for pet consumption within your own home and can alleviate pet’s nausea and vomiting in the same way. You can add bentonite clay to your pet's water to help reduce symptoms like vomiting. Mix 1/4 cup or less of the clay into their water until it dissolves. They should not taste anything or even notice that it is there, but should feel better pretty quickly.

  • Boosts Immunity: In a study from Arizona State University, bentonite clay was found to be highly effective at killing many types of seriously harmful illnesses, like E. Coli and MRSA for example. More research is still needed on the topic but results of studies so far appear to be promising in terms of how the clay can be used as a treatment for these serious illnesses. On top of killing these types of infections and viruses, bentonite clay benefits your immune system by keeping the gut wall strong. Much of the immune system actually lives inside of the gut, and when the gut wall is compromised, toxins are better able to leach into the blood stream and cause serious problems. By protecting the gut wall and decreasing the amount of pesticides, toxins, bacteria, and chemicals that could potentially enter the blood, the body is better able to protect its health.

  • Teeth & Gum Health: Bentonite improves the health of teeth and gums. The mouth is one of the most susceptible areas of the body when it comes to harmful outside "invaders" taking over, like bacteria and toxins. Bentonite clay binds to unhealthy substances in the mouth, such as around the teeth and on the tongue and gums, and helps to remove them before you swallow them and become sick. because of Bentonite’s anti-bacterial properties it has been used in natural toothpastes and even mixed with water and used as a daily rinse.

  • Purifies Water: Bentonite clay has been researched as an effective way to remove some of the fluoride that is often in drinking water. When combined with magnesium, the clay has been shown to benefit the purity of tap water which leads to some promising possibilities for using it in the future as a widespread cost-effective water purification method.

  • Baby Powder Alternative: Bentonite is useful as a baby powder alternative. Bentonite clay can be applied to any area on the skin of babies that is irritated, red, or needs soothing in the same way that traditional powders are used. Plus, it is very gentle and naturally cleansing. Apply a small amount of the clay directly to the skin and allow it to sit for several minutes before wiping/rinsing it away.

    clay calamine lotion


    HOMEMADE CALAMINE LOTION RECIPE #1

    Ingredients
    HOMEMADE CALAMINE LOTION RECIPE #2

    Ingredients
    Instructions

    Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Store in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks. To store longer, whisk together all powdered dry ingredients and store in a bottle or jar. When needed, place only as much as you need into a small bowl and add water, glycerin and essential oils. This way it is fresh and effective.

    Zinc Oxide: Zinc oxide been used for centuries as a skin protectant and ointment, with references in medical literature showing up in India as early as 500 BC and in Greece in the first century AD. It is helpful in the treatment of skin wounds and traumas and does not absorb into the skin, which allows it to be an effective topical treatment and promotes healing. Zinc Oxide Powder
    is available from Amazon.com, local compounding pharmacy, or from candlemaking supply stores.

    Iron Oxide: Iron Oxide is what gives Calamine its characteristic pink color. Calamine is a mixture of Zinc Oxide and about 0.5% Iron Oxide. More than that small amount is used in the above recipe to make it easy, and is there primarily for the colorant rather than for its medicinal properties. Iron Oxide is available from Amazon.com and can be found at any soapmaking supply store. It is often used for tinting homemade cosmetics.

    Bentonite Clay vs Pink Kaolin Clay: Bentonite clay is typically used for internal detoxification, but because commercial preparations of calamine use bentonite, However, the Pink (Rose) Kaolin Clay actually produced a better color and kaolin clay is more commonly used in topical cosmetic preparations because of its very gentle detoxification on the skin. Pink Kaolin Clay is available at soapmaking stores and online at Amazon.com.

    Baking Soda: Baking Soda is wonderful as an anti-itching agent, it is cheap, plentiful, and it is typically in every kitchen, making it an important part of this recipe. In store-bought calamine lotion, Calcium Hydroxide is what performs this function, but baking soda is definitely more common. If you would like to try the calcium hydroxide, you can find it at Latin grocery stores under the name "cal" or "slaked lime," as it’s used in the process of grinding corn for tortillas or you can obtain it from Amazon.com.

    Glycerin: Glycerin is used in cosmetic applications as a skin protectant and a moisturizer. Even in the small amount used here, it makes the homemade calamine lotion a bit smoother and softer. It is definitely optional, so if you do not have it, do not worry about it.

    Essential Oils: Essential Oils are included here both for the scent and the healing properties. Be sure to use the highest quality you can afford since this will be applied directly to the skin. Lavender, Peppermint, Camphor, Tea Tree essential oils are all known for their ability to relieve itching, so those are certainly some of the most popular, but consult a knowledgeable aromatherapist if you want to get creative with your oils, as there are certainly others that would be helpful.



    bentonite paste for skin healing


    BENTONITE CLAY PASTE FOR SEVERE DIAPER RASH RECIPE

    Although bentonite clay can be sprinkled like baby powder, this recipe offes more mask-like application so it can be applied directly to severe redness and blistering caused by candida-related diaper rash. It helps to provide a speedy recovery and healing of the affected area. This formula can be helpful on other skin inflammations as well, not just for babies. Immediately upon application you may notice your baby feeling better as the clay calms and soothes the irritation.

    Ingredients
    Instructions

    Combine bentonite clay and water in a small bowl. The preferred ratio to remember is 1 tablespoon water to 1 tablespoon bentonite clay. Mix together until smooth. Add in 1 to 2 drops of tea tree essential oil and mix well. Transfer to widemouth container with a tight fitting lid to keep it from drying out. This recipe makes about 2 ounces of paste. Apply paste to inflamed skin with every diaper change or as needed throughout the day.



    clay toothpaste


    HOMEMADE CLAY TOOTHPASTE RECIPE

    Ingredients
    Instructions

  • Dump the powdered clay in a bowl, then add sea salt.
  • Pour in the boiling water.
  • Using a hand mixer (or a sticker blender would also work), start mixing the clay until it is well blended with the water. The consistency that you are going for is just thick enough to stay on a toothbrush, but still thin enough that you will be able to dip a toothbrush in and easily scoop some up. If it is too thick, this gets harder to accomplish. This toothpaste is completely edible and non-toxic.
  • Start adding stevia, and both the peppermint and tea tree essential oils. But, do not put the full amounts in yet. Start with half of the drops first. This gives you the ability to taste it as you go and not end up with something sweeter or stronger than you will enjoy using. Mix it well after you add the first of the drops. Then taste a bit on the tip of your finger. Go ahead and add more stevia and/or essential oils until it tastes how you want it. For some, about 20 drops of stevia, 13 to 14 drops peppermint, and 4 drops tea tree was ideal. You will want to get a fine balance of flavor between the Stevia, Peppermint and Tea Tree oils. Adjust to your specific taste.
  • Place mixture in a wide mouth, shallow glass mason jar to make it easy for toothbrush dipping. Make sure you put an airtight lid on top, and keep it screwed on whenever you are not using it to keep it from drying out. Keep it out of reach of your kids (they like the flavor). Another suggestion is to place toothpaste mixture into a refillable, squeezeable shampoo bottle with a flip cap.



  • clay mascara


    HOMEMADE CLAY MASCARA RECIPE

    Ingredients
    Instructions

    Open, by gently twisting gel caps, and empty activated charcoal from the capsule into a very small bowl (custard bowl or smaller works well). Discard empty capsules. If using bulk activated charcoal powder, the conversion is 14 capsules is equal to 1 tablespoon. Add the pure aloe vera gel (the brand and consistency of the aloe vera can make a difference in the consistency of the mascara and make sure you blend it very well until smooth). If you have an aloe vera plant growing in your windowsill, you can use the gel contents inside one of the leaves, but make sure you blend it to a smooth consistency without any lumps. Add slightly less than 1/4 teaspoon Bentonite clay (or other cosmetic clay) to the mixing bowl. Mix all of the ingredients together until smooth and consistent. The clay helps the mascara dry after application to the lashes, Other homemade mascaras had a problem with not drying and have a tendency to smear, making the face look like a raccoon. Take your empty mascara bottle and use a oral syringe to fill the tube. An oral syringe can be obtained from the drugstore for a few dollars and reused. It also makes the process much easier to accomplish. Transfer the mixture into the mascara tube by pushing the plunger into the tube. Wipe off any excess mixture. Unlike the coconut oil homemade mascara recipes, this mascara dries on the lashes and does not smudge. This is an easy recipe that makes one tube of mascara. Try curling your lashes before applying the mascara and apply about three coats, allowing each coat to dry for about a minute before adding another coat. Have an eyelash comb or a clean, old mascara wand on hand to brush out any clumps to be brushed through. Keep the lid on tight as the mixture will dry if left open. Discard mascara after three months of use.

    CLAY DOSAGE INFORMATION

    Read and follow product directions on your clay products. Different clays will have different uses, depending upon their qualities. Not all should be used internally as dietary supplements. Some are for external use only.

    BENTIONITE CLAY

    When using Bentonite Clay for treatment of your condition, read and follow product label directions. If you plan on consuming bentonite clay by mouth (ingesting it either by eating or drinking the clay), try this:
    • Drink 1/2 to 1 teaspoon once per day as many days of the week as you would like. Mix the clay with water, preferably in a jar with a lid where you can shake the clay and make it dissolve. Then drink it right away.

    If you plan on only using it externally on your skin, try this:
    • Enjoy the bentonite clay benefits by adding a 1/4 cup of the clay to your bath and massage your skin with it. Or just allow the clay to dissolve into the water and soak it in for as long as you would like, then rinse your skin well with clean water.

    • Try gargling the clay in your mouth with some water for 30 seconds to 1 minute, similarly to using mouth wash. Then spit out the clay and rinse your mouth with clean water.

    • Try creating a face mask by smearing the clay directly onto your skin, especially anywhere where you have blemishes, red spots, irritations, or scarring. Allow the clay to dry (this usually takes about 20 minutes) and then rinse it off with warm water. It is recommended to use the clay mask one or twice per week for best results.

    • clay facial

      To make a clay mask at home, put 1 tablespoon of clay in a glass bowl and add pure water a little at a time until a thick paste forms. Be careful not to add too much water or it will be too thin. After the clay and water are mixed well: if your skin is sensitive add 1/2 teaspoon of Aloe Vera Juice, if it is oily add 4 or 5 drops of Jojoba Oil, or if your skin is dry add 6 to 8 drops of Olive Oil and mix well. Using your fingers, gently apply the clay mask to your face or body. For maximum benefits, allow the mask to dry for about 20 minutes or until almost dry. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat the skin dry.


    • For scrapes or bug bites, apply a concentrated amount of the clay directly to the trouble area and cover with a Band-Aid or gauze, then let it sit for about 2 hours, then rinse it off.

    EUROPEAN GREEN CLAY

    European Green Clay may be used as beautifying agent. The absorbent properties of Green Clay work in beauty treatments by drawing out impurities and toxins from the skin, toning and firming it and stimulating circulation. Estheticians use it to tighten pores, exfoliate dead skin, and reveal a smoother, fresher complexion. It is known to clear problem skin and fix blemishes, usually in the form of a clay mask. If you have a dry or sensitive skin complexion, you should use a clay mask only once a week, as the clay will absorb moisture from the skin along with any impurities.

    For oily skin, mix 1 tablespoon of European Clay with 1 tablespoon of cold water.
    For dry skin, add a few drops of Jojoba Oil and/or Lavender Essential Oil to to the mix prior to applying. Thoroughly cover the face and neck avoiding sensitive areas and the eyes, allow to set for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse off and apply moisturizer. Always do a test patch when using essential oils.

    For serious conditions: consult a health care professional before use. In case of intestinal discomfort during use, reduce amount used or discontinue usage.





    CLAY SAFETY, CAUTIONS, & INTERACTIONS

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    Generally, healing clays are generally safet to use when used as directed in the recommended dosage. Follow directions carefully.

    BENTONITE CLAY

    There are no known safety issues associated with Bentonite when using the recommended doses.

    Pregnant or nursing women and the elderly should avoid Bentonite.

    It is important not to take any nutritional supplement at the same time as the Bentonite. The Bentonite will absorb anything of nutritional value such as herbs, friendly bacteria, vitamins, as well as toxins. Be sure to wait an hour after drinking Bentonite before taking anything nutritional.

    Some individuals are worried about the aluminum content of Bentonite clay. If you look at the bentonite clay profile by Mountain Rose Herbs, you will see that their bentonite clay contains 18.1-percent aluminum - the highest of all the minerals found in the clay. There may be some variation depending upon who you buy your clay from and where their clay is mined, but this can be really confusing for a lot of people since we all know that aluminum can be dangerous for our health. However, Aluminum occurs naturally in our bodies, and as with everything else we put in our bodies, the source and form of aluminum makes a big difference in how our bodies use it. The molecular structure of bentonite, especially the high negative charge of the aluminum, makes it impossible for the aluminum to leach into our systems. Instead, the aluminum leaves our bodies the old-fashioned way - along with the positively-charged toxins and impurities that the clay has bonded to. At a chemical level, much of clay’s healing benefit depends on aluminum.

    Another concern may be using Sodium Bentonite internally. Since sodium bentonite is the better detoxifying Bentonite, you may be considering it use if you want to take it internally for a nice detox. Remember how it Sodium Bentonite exchanges it's sodium for your toxins. Well that could cause your body to get too much sodium and that in itself can cause a good amount of problems. Mountain Rose Herbs sells sodium bentonite and they specify that their clay is for external use only, but there are a combination of both sodium and calcium bentonite clays available so that you can take them internally and get the best of both worlds… just as long as you take the right amount and do not overdo it. Detoxifying should be done in small steps over an extended period of time with breaks in between sessions. This gives your body a chance to adjust and normalize between cleanses.

    Another concern is constipation. Bentonite clay can be used internally to detox the body as well as help with pH and remineralization, but if you use too much of it, it is definitely going to cause constipation issues. Think about it. It is clay. If you mix bentonite clay with a little water, you are going to get a seriously thick paste. As you continue to add water to it, the clay continues to thin out and disperse in the water. Same goes in your body. If you take bentonite clay in water or in capsules, you have to continue to drink water throughout the day to help the clay stay thin and not "settle" or "compact" in your colon. Just like your bathroom plumbing when you use a clay bath, keep things well watered down and moving so clogs do not happen as it drains. Constipation is no fun and can be a serious problem if allowed to happen.

    EUROPEAN GREEN CLAY

    Might cause breakout on initial usage. Although unsure about smaller pore size, the result of using this is a really cleansed face feeling soft and smooth. But if you are acne prone or you have not been detoxing your skin for awhile, you are going to experience some amount of "purging" using this clay.

    You may experience some skin breakout the first time but once you begin to regularly use it (once a week), this should lessen. Anything more, it can become over drying if you are only adding water to the clay and nothing else.

    FRENCH GREEN CLAY

    French Green Clay is for external use only and is regarded as safe on all skin types.

    PASCALITE CLAY

    Pascalite, a form of calcium bentonite, is used as a mineral and dietary supplement, which under an April 13, 1976, federal law removed such supplements from the drug classification.

    Bentonite has been ruled G.R.A.S. "Generally Regarded As Safe" for human consumption. The FDA have cleared Pascalite by their department.
