I have been using the magical bentonite clay for years. The benefits of bentonite clay are so amazing. It helps detoxify the body and skin, which can be used both internally and externally. It can help improve digestive upsets such as gas and bloating.
We know that animals instinctively eat clay when they are sick or poisoned or fighting illness. And humans have been using the powerful healing benefits of clay when they are fighting toxicity.
The main benefit of bentonite clay is that it is negatively charged, which means it attracts positive ions, such as heavy metals, toxins and other nasties. By attracting the positive ions, it is then able to remove them, when excreted from the body.
There are many ways to use bentonite clay, but this is one of my favourites.
I know some people have made a detox paste to use under their underarms, but I like to take it a step further and use it on my pelvic area and behind my knees to help flush out my lymphatic system.
2 Tbsp Bentonite Clay
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
Enough water to make a paste
5 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
Add bentonite clay, vinegar, essential oil and 2 Tbsp water to a bowl and stir to combine. Add more water if needed to make a smooth paste.
Apply paste to the underarms, pelvic/groin area and behind knees for a great lymphatic cleanse. Leave for 15-20 mins then rinse off.
Repeat once a week.
*Note: once the clay has dried, it stops the drawing process.
