Ok bentonite clay talk continues! Have you ever heard of a mud bath or mud facial? Mud really means clay and clay is a natural mineral from the earth composed of aged volcanic ash. The name comes from Fort Benton, Wyoming where they have the largest amount of clay.
Bentonite can be used externally as a mud pack, in skin care, deodorant or bath care recipes. A good quality Bentonite should be a grey/cream color and odorless. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals.
When mixed with water, it swells open like a sponge and can draw out toxins from your body. Put it on your face to clear up your skin. Put it on your feet to clear out crap from your body like toxins and impurities. Here I put it on my belly, let it dry then placed an ace bandage firmly around my midsection. Leave it on for a few hours but definitely remove if uncomfortable.
I have a big party to attend this weekend. My dress is a bit too tight. I'm going to do a clay pack on my tummy and wear a tight ace bandage for a few hours. This is going to help de-bloat me and make that dress fit! After a few hours I will wash this off then Apply my coconut oil and grapefruit essential oil. Then I will shake my 'thang' on the dancefloor!
