Bentonite Clay can help with ...
And now, of course you're wondering, how does this work?! Bentonite Clay carries a strong negative charge which bonds to the positive charge in many toxins. When it becomes mixed with water, it swells open like a sponge. As the clay comes in contact with the toxins, it absorbs them and releases its minerals for the body to use. It also brings oxygen to the cells by pulling excess hydrogen.
If you're taking a bath...
Fill the tub with HOT water and 2 cups of clay. It will be a disgusting gray-ish brown...yes, it's supposed to look like that. It's not dirty!!! Stay hydrated while you're in the bath so that you don't get lightheaded. I always drink Coconut Water when I'm in the detox bath:
Mix a spoonful of clay and some water in a bowl and whisk it up. When it's in a mask consistency, go ahead and apply it to your face. Let it sit for 20 minutes, then wash off with a warm washcloth. Doing the mask and the bath simultaneously is incredibly relaxing, healthy, and powerful. You can also do foot masks and hair masks with the clay; it's not limited to just your face. Last but not least, if the idea of drinking coconut water is less-than-appealing, imagine drinking...
A Bentonite Clay drink. Ugh, gross!. No I'm totally kidding, it doesn't taste like anything. It's not gross! This is just as effective as drinking detox tea or oil pulling. Mix a teaspoon of clay in 2 ounces of ice water and let sit for 30 minutes, then drink. You will feel the magic, I promise. Just don't drink this while sitting in the detox bath. That's detox overload, you'll feel sick. You need to do the opposite and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
As far as the frequency for all of these things, I do them whenever I feel that they're needed. I try to do the mask and the bath once a week, and I'm still working on making the drink a regular part of my life. I'd love to hear from y'all about your experiences with the clay and how you like it!
One more really important thing... where can you buy it?!
Happy healing! I hope you're ready for the softest skin and healthiest feeling body of your life!
