USA Green Bentonite Clay, Pure, 3 sizes
100% Pure USA GREEN Bentonite Clay. Screw top plastic container, recloseable foil packet, or bulk pound plastic bag. Many uses. Traditionally used as a poultice for bites and pimples, or as a facial pack for removing oils and dirt from clogged pores. Similar to the clay that you find in spas, but this is local to the USA and green in color.
Due to its unique reverse electrical polarity (given to it in the explosive bowels of an ancient, giant, super-volcanic eruption, likely the Yellowstone Volcano), do NOT store this clay in any metal containers or ever touch with metal spoons. NO METAL! Plastic, glass or wood containers and utensils only. Keep away from magnets and electromagnetic forces.
Often used in traditional folklore for intestinal cleansing and the detox of heavy metals, however, this product is not approved by the FDA for internal use or as a medicine or drug, therefore, it is sold for external use only. However, nobody is going to follow you to see what you do with it.
Note: The one pound size is bulk clay in a temporary plastic bag meant to go into your container at home. The 100g and 8oz are in more robust containers that last on their own.
Mixing to Activate Clay:
Bentonite Clay needs to be mixed with water to be activated for use.
I use a quart size mason jar with a lid about 3/4 full of water. I start with two heaping tablespoon of Bentonite clay powder (remember it's just mud, so it's not an exact science). Then I put the lid on and shake well for 15 to 20 seconds. Then allow to sit for two hours; the clay will activate. Then I shake it up again.
I keep the 'mud' stored in that mason jar with the lid on, or a clean plastic yogurt container, or a small glass jar in a cabinet at room temperature. If it starts to dry out over time, just add a bit more water and remix.
CA Prop 65 Warning: All dirt and earth products, including bentonite clay, contain trace amounts of lead. This clay has half the normal lead content of garden soil. Normally, lad would be an issue. But the small amount of lead is bound to the clay and is not released into the body at all. The unique chemistry of bentonite is in the electrical binding properties.
