The Power of Bentonite

For years, I have been an avid user of Aztec Secret Indian Healing Bentonite Clay Powder, mostly for my hair and skin, but I have come to love the liquid detox form by Yerba Prima.

I am always discussing the release of unwanted toxins, especially after my colon scare last year. We are constantly consumed with unwanted and yes, sometimes welcomed toxins (alcoholic beverages, smoke, etc.), so we must become conscious of ways to release them from our systems.

Bentonite is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays on the market. As stated above, you can use it internally, as well as externally. There are a variety of brands that you can purchase, though my personal faves are referenced above, with a click through to Vitacost. Bentonite basically creates an "electrical charge" when hydrated and attaches itself and absorbs any and all toxins. It is long known to remove not only toxins, but heavy metals and impurities.

For my face, I just mix the powder with equal parts of Apple Cider Vinegar, apply to my face as a mask and let harden. With my hair, the process is very detailed in which I include various oils that may not work for your hair type. I suggest that you conduct your own online search to learn the best way to use Bentonite. If you decide to purchase the liquid form, be aware that it does what it says its supposed to do and you will be fully cleansed! :-)

Here are additional uses of Bentonite:
  • Acid Reflux and bloating
  • Constipation, gas and diarrhea
  • Oral health, teeth whitening and remineralization
  • Bug bites, stings, cuts and burns
  • Skin problems, face masks, detox body baths
  • Morning sickness
