Have you heard about the healing powers of bentonite clay?
If not, I am so excited to introduce you to it! If you are craving a deep detox that will boost your energy levels and kickstart your digestion, this remedy has you covered!
This might sound crazy to you but I want to let you in on a little secret of mine: I drink clay and I believe your body is crying out for you to do it too.
Sounds a little curious, I know, but hear me out. Try to envision the clay as a magnet. As it moves through the body it's negative charge attracts + binds to toxins, which are predominately positively charged. This is an ancient tool that all known indigenous peoples have been using around the world for centuries. Even birds and many other animals eat clay before their morning feeding to eliminate the harmful toxins + heavy metals their food may carry.
Are you ready to try bentonite clay for yourself? (If you need more convincing see the video below for more information.)
Here's how I use clay:
Detox: This is a wonderful way to boost your energy, improve digestion + flush out your system! Mix a teaspoon of clay into a glass of room temperature water. I find it's easiest to use a glass with a closable top (make sure to only use PLASTIC or GLASS, since metal reacts with the clay and reduces it's effectiveness). Give it a good shaking and drink up in the morning on an empty stomach. Make sure to drink a lot of filtered water throughout the day when you drink clay. I recommend at least 3 liters.
Face Mask: Whether you’ve struggled with some unwanted blemishes or you want to be preventative and protect your beautiful face from pre-mature wrinkles, this magical bentonite mask is your secret weapon. Bentonite Clay works like a magnet. When mixed with water or apple cider vinegar, the clay pulls dirt and toxins out of the skin and simultaneously oxygenates the skin’s cells. When you apply the mask you will feel a pulsing sensation, giving you a reminder that your face mask is doing it’s job well. Combine the clay with just enough water or apple cider vinegar to make a paste. Apply a substantial layer to your clean face and let sit for 20 minutes. I try my best to do this once a week.
Curious where to find the stuff? You can find the clay in your local health food store in or online. Make sure to purchase food grade bentonite clay if you plan to do the internal detox.
These are just a couple of the numerous ways to use bentonite clay. I encourage you to explore for yourself! I love sharing the lessons I learn on my journey and I would love to hear about yours!
