  • healing earth


    In the annals of natural medicine, healing earth is highly regarded for the treatment of burns, wounds, skin disorders, intestinal problems and joint inflammation. In addition, it supplies the body with a number of minerals and trace elements. The health effects of healing earth were first reported by Emmanuel Felke (1856-1926), a natural healer who was also known as The Clay Pastor. According to Felke, the fine-grained clay known as loess, found in Ice-Age deposits, is the soil that is best suited to therapeutic purposes. To make healing earth, the loess clay is further ground up and sifted; the finer the powder, the easier it is for the body's cells to use. Depending on the nature of the ailment, healing earth can be taken internally or applied externally.

    Healing Clay can be mixed with water, making a paste with strong drawing power - a hand-made poultice can be applied to the skin for drawing out oils and toxins while cleansing, revitalizing and healing the skin. Useful, convenient, cleansing, and invigorating, cosmetic clays are one of the most widely applied skin applications, always promising us remarkable results. These exceptional quality clays have a multitude of purposes and each one carries substantial quantites of minerals for general skin health.

    All of Mountain Rose Clays have been pre-screened and analyzed to guarantee consistency with an unsurpassable mineral content.

    clay powder



    Healing Earth is available in various forms, including very fine, fine and coarse powders, as well as Healing-Earth capsules. The very fine powder (often called "ultra-fine") and the capsules are recommended for internal use because the body can best absorb the nutrients in the clay when it is very finely ground. Fine powder is used externally in face masks and compresses. The coarse powder is often added to warm baths.


    Pascalite is a form of calcium bentonite containing at least twenty elements including iron, magnesium, and silicon, better than sodium bentonite. Uses as skin cleanser, conditioner, internally for heartburn, ulcers and for a natural mineral dietary supplement. Bentonite Clay traps, binds, relieves, and cleanses non-nutritive and harmful substances such as toxins, parasites and pesticides from the colon and may relieve diarrhea, constipation, colitis, viral infections, and stomach flu. For daily use, take 1 tablespoonful with liquid once or twice a day on an empty stomach. For short term use, take 1 tablespoonful every two hours. Drink additional fluid during the day. Shake well before using. For serious conditions: consult a health professional before use. In case of intestinal discomfort during use, reduce amount used or discontinue usage.


    A powdery, astringent "healing earth" called French Green Clay may be purchased in health-food stores or online. It is available through Mountain Rose Herbs and Herbal Remedies. This mineral-rich clay reduces sebum production and keeps moisture in the tissues.

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, it is completely natural, unscented and fragrance free.
    Mountain Rose Herbs: Fuller's Earth Clay, Cosmetic, Facial & Spa Quality Clays

    healing earth preparation


    Healing Earth has antiseptic and antibiotic effects. When applied externally, it cools, cleanses and promotes the healing of wounds and skin inflammations. It is used for joint and muscle inflammation. When taken internally, it eases gastrointestinal conditions such as heartburn and other problems, colds and sore throat and supplies minerals and trace elements. Plus, it helps stimulate cell metabolism and enhances blood flow to the cells.


    A range of minerals and trace elements - including silica, calcium, potassium, copper, sodium, iron, magnesium, fluoride, manganese and zinc - are in the naturally clean clay that is processed into Healing Earth. The powders and capsules contain no chemical additives.

    TAKE CARE! - Be sure to allow 1 to 2 hours between taking Healing Earth and any over-the-counter or prescription drugs. Healing Earth could possibly interfere with the body's absorption of the medications and impair their effectiveness.

    facial mask



    Cold compresses are good for phlebitis, burns, insect bites, sunburn, itching and sprains. Mix fine healing earth and cold water to make a thick paste. Spread the mixture onto strips of wet linen cloth. You can spread the paste up to 1/2 inch thick. Place the coated strips on the affected area and cover with a dry cloth for 1 to 2 hours.


    Warm compresses have a soothing effect on muscle stiffness, menstrual cramps and back pain. To make the compresses, follow the preparation for cold compresses (above), but use water that is hot to the touch.


    Healing Earth Baths promote circulation and alleviate skin problems, muscle aches and joint diseases. Add 2 to 3 pounds of coarse Healing Earth to a full bath, varying the amount according to the size of the tub and the quantity of water used. After the bath, rinse and dry off vigorously.


    The ultra-fine powder or capsules can be used to reduce gastric acid, calm heartburn and alleviate diarrhea. Take 1 to 2 capsules or 1 teaspoon of powder dissolved in 1/2 cup of water 2 to 3 times a day on an empty stomach.


    Healing Earth removes excess oils from the hair and scalp and promotes scalp circulation. Mix 3 tablespoons of Healing Earth with 1 quart of water. Massage it into the scalp; rinse after a few minutes. Use daily for one week.


    For sore throat, toothache or inflammation of the lining of the mouth or gums, add 2 teaspoons of Healing Earth to 1 cup of warm Chamomile tea. Rinse or gargle with this up to 8 times a day. The microscopic particles of healing earth absorb the germs while the Chamomile tea alleviates inflammation.


    Poor complexion and acne will benefit from a cleansing face mask made with Healing Earth. Combine 1 to 2 tablespoons of Healing Earth with enough freshly squeezed orange juice to make a creamy paste. Apply directly to the face and allow it to dry. Rinse with lukewarm water after approximately 10 minutes.


    Historically used by Native Americans for purification and healing, Bentonite clay is a combination of montmorillonite (hydrous aluminous silicate) and volcanic ash. This is cosmetic grade powdered clay. It is used to thicken lotions, to suspend makeup pigments, emulsify oils, and to absorb facial oil and reduce shine in makeup lotions, liquid makeup and facial masks. It is greenish-gray, and is the most absorbent of the clays. Use for oily skin face masks to draw out impurities. Its 'slippery when wet' consistency makes it the ideal clay for shaving soaps. Use 1 tablespoon per pound of soap. It is also useful as an oily hair and scalp treatment.
