How is it made?
Our bentonite clay comes from ancient volcanic ash deposits in Wyoming and Montana where the ash, with time, slowly transforms into bentonite. Also known as montmorillonite, bentonite clay typically comes from underground mines up to a mile in depth.
What is it used for?
Bentonite clay has been used to assist in mineral deficiencies and to help bind toxins making them more soluble. It is one of the most effective healing clays available. It is commonly used in poultices, mud packs, and sometimes internally as part of a cleanse (however one must exercise caution when using as such).
When combined with water, bentonite swells like an extremely absorbent sponge. It also is very unusual in that once it combines with water, the electrical charge of the clay change to produce an electrical charge.
When stored in a cool, dry location, this clay should last indefinitely.
Safety Considerations: Our bentonite is food-grade and, therefore, suitable for internal use. However, when taking internally, one should seek the guidance of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider.
