Bentonite Clay Relief for Skin Conditions
Blend 1-part Bentonite to 2 parts water and apply to the skin as a clay pack. Bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin & within pores are drawn out and bound to the clay. Keep the pack on for about 20 minutes before removing with warm water. For facials, apply a clay mask once or twice per week for best results. This helps to prevent adverse skin conditions.

How much Bentonite Clay to use for Bath or Foot Soak ?
How much you use is really up to you. 1 - 4 cups per bath, soaking for 20 minutes is a refreshing topical body therapy to soften skin and replenish pores as the clay binds to skin toxins and free radicals.Or you could go ‘all out’ and enjoy a mud bath in your own home by adding lots of Bentonite to bath water.Foot soaks are great too, if you don’t have a bathtub, in which case use ½ cup of Bentonite Clay blended into warm water.
Full body mud-pack !You will need a dedicated space for this as it can be rather messy, a bench to lie on, towels, lots of blended bentonite topped with an adventurous spirit and a friend with the same ! In a large bowl blend Bentonite and water to a consistency of mud. Lie on the bench whilst your friend applies the mud all over your body. After 15-20 minutes the clay can be washed off. Your skin should feel revitalised, refreshed, tingle and feel silky soft. Replenish by drinking ample pure water afterwards.
