Today, we live in a heavily polluted world. Pollution finds its way into our bodies through water, air, food and everyday products. This is what we now call a body burden.
However, Nature has provided us with ways
to help our bodies to deal with this burden. Among such ways, clay
has a very special status. Its extraordinarily rich physico-chemical
properties make it one of the best detoxifier/purifier available. Simple,
yet powerful, it detoxifies the body and heals a wide array of ailments.
It acts like a sponge and a sticky paper for chemicals, pollutants,
Clay has been used for millennia by many different civilizations. Considered sacred by Egyptians, clay was prescribed by ancient doctors for internal use to heal a panel of gastro-intestinal diseases. In the 5 Elements Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is considered to focus telluric and cosmic energies and allow the entry of the Element Earth in the global dynamic of an organism.

How Can Green Clay Help Me?
The essential minerals within the clay are released and the body absorbs those it needs to maintain health & vigor. Illite Clay is believed to hinder the exacerbation of infection and have a regenerating action on the tissues. It is absorbent, adsorbent, antiseptic, antibacterial and haemostatic.
One of the most remarkable characteristics of illite clay is its ability to act according to each person's specific needs. Unlike chemical medicines, which can destroy healthy tissues and beneficial bacteria as well as bad, illite clay is selective allowing healing to take place at a natural rate. Green Clay also possesses analgesic properties effective in relieving muscular or joint pains by decongesting the affected area.
In addition, Illite clay is a valuable beauty treatment and is the main ingredient in many natural face masks, bath & spa products. It has a deep cleansing action, removes dead skin cells, absorbs impurities, excess sebum & oils to keep the skin smooth, fresh & radiant.
Clays’ detoxifying properties are explained by two key factors.
1) It’s absorptive capacity is very high so it draws toxins out of the body effectively.
2) Its negative cumulative ionic charge which helps to attract and bind positively charged waste and eliminate it out of the body.
Clay acts like a sponge, attracting water and toxins not only to its negatively charged surface, but also inside the numerous canals in its crystalline structure. Heavy metals from fish, pesticides from fruits and vegetables, chemicals from water... We are all, you, me and the rest of the world, concerned by what is now called "body burden": the chemical pollution in our bodies.
Clay is a natural healer and acts softly but deeply on the body. Because Clay is a powerful natural medicine, gently start your clay detox cure with Clay Water. Clay removes chemicals, toxins and pollutants from your body and traps them.
clay for external use
Illite clay is supplied in its natural dried form and can be used as a poultice for application to muscles, joints, sprains, slight wounds, infections, minor burns and much more.
v Used in a general bath or a foot bath,
clays act as a very effective detoxifying remedy. For best results,
internal clay use is recommended at the same time.
v Used as a vaginal douche, it can help with many problems including Candida.
v Used over hemorrhoids, clay helps heal them quickly.
v Used over skin conditions - acne, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, illite clay draws toxins out and promotes healing. It is a Godsend for oily, problem skin - with its purifying, drying action.
v Used over burns /sunburn, cold clay compresses are the fastest healing and pain relieving remedy which helps regeneration of tissue and prevents formation of scars.
v Tense over-worked muscles – clay poultices/wraps will draw the lactic acid and relax the muscle.
v Cuts, bruises & abrasions – the clay’s absorptive, antiseptic, antibacterial and haemostatic qualities support the body’s natural curative abilities and greatly reduce healing time.
To make a compress, mix some clay with warm water to make it quite runny. Spread over a piece of cloth. Apply on an affected area. Cover with a compress paper, wrap up in a warm cloth. Leave on until the clay dries out. Apply on aching joints, muscles, in the area of organs affected by an illness.
· Poultice: A poultice has a much more powerful effect than a compress, since it requires a lot more clay per application. Pour the required quantity of Illite clay into a large glass bowl. Cover with water (1 - 2 cm) mix with a wooden spoon and allow up time for the clay to absorb the water. Mix to a smooth paste. Spread 0.5 - 2cm of paste onto a piece of gauze. Apply directly to the affected area, gauze uppermost, securing with a bandage. Leave in place for up to 2 hours but do not allow the paste to dry. Discard the poultice and re-apply a fresh one if required.
It works as a mass, drawing up toxic waste into itself. The electromagnetic charge is stronger too. So the overall effect is more powerful. It is especially good for applications on an affected area or simply where a stronger action is required. If an area is hot and inflamed, a cold poultice application is recommended to relieve the heat and reduce the inflammation.
· Mineral Baths: Add a large handful of dried Green Clay to a deep 30 min bath to soften the skin & invigorate the system.
· Face Mask: To prepare a deep cleansing beauty face mask apply a thin layer of Green Clay paste to your entire face. Leave for 10 - 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water. They are also excellent at restoring the natural pH of the skin and cleansing it. Acne is another skin condition which benefits from clay applications. Clay is a great detoxifyier, it leaves the skin cleansed, pink, fresh and revitalized, generally looking younger.
· Body Wrap
Body wrap is another very useful application for French Green clays. It is a luxurious and thoroughly therapeutic treatment, especially with powdered seaweed added to it. Mix the clay with seaweed powder (50/50), add water to form a spreadable mass. To do it at home, prepare a place to lie on first, and a warm room. Lay down 1 or 2 warm blankets, with a plastic sheet on top. Cover yourself with the mixture of clay and water, or clay, seaweed and water, lie down on the plastic sheet, cover yourself with the remaining half of the blanket. Make sure you remain warm throughout. Stay under the blanket for 15-30 minutes. Wash off in a shower or a bath. For a salon application, follow the normal procedure for a body wrap.
· Body Powder
Use dry Green clay powder (especially Illite) on weeping eczema, ulcers, Athlete's foot,
any sores or wounds which need disinfection and healing.
· Tooth Powder/ Mouth infections
Great for the gums, preventing the formation of plaque and mouth ulcers. If an inflammation of the gums or a mouth ulcer occurs, take some clay into your mouth and keep it there for a while (10-15 minutes). Do not swallow - rinse the mouth with warm water. Repeat the procedure frequently, until the inflammation goes away.
It can also be used as tooth powder - it is excellent at removing plaque and whitening teeth, due to their bleaching properties (be careful not to over-use it for this purpose, since it can be abrasive and can wear down the enamel).
