Bentonite clay is a very healing clay and has been shown to be extremely effective at removing toxins from our skin. It can be used externally as a clay poultice, as a mud pack, and in many different skincare recipes.

How To Use Bentonite Clay

Face Mask

Clay holds in moisture while your skin soaks in vital minerals needed for tissue repair and rejuvenation. Pair with a few drop of your favorite essential oils for a relaxing spa night.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp bentonite clay
  • 1 tbsp filtered water
  • 2 drops of organic lavender essential oil
  • 1 drop organic tea tree essential oil
  • 1 drop rose absolute

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl with your finger. Once you have a nice paste, begin layering onto your face. Let it sit on your face until the clay turns white, hardens, or your skin begins to tingle and rinse the mask off with a washcloth and water. For sensitive skin, remove 5 minutes after applying.

Sunburns & Bug Bites

If you’ve ever suffered a sunburn or bug bites, then you need a powerful anti-itching, soothing cream.

For large sunburns mix the following…

  • ½ cup bentonite clay
  • ½ cup of distilled water
  • 2 tablespoons of aloe vera

Coat thickly over affected area and wrap in plastic wrap to maintain moisture. May be left on overnight or for several hours.

For bug bites use the following…

  • 1 tbsp bentonite clay
  • 1 tbsp filtered water

Simply apply to the bite(s) in a thick amount.

Poultice for Sprains

This one may seem a little stranger than other applications, but clay has anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it the perfect candidate for a poultice on sprains.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of bentonite clay
  • 1 cup of filtered water

Mix together with a spoon, and then apply the paste in thick layers over the affected area. Wrap in plastic wrap to retain the moisture, and leave on 8-10 hours.

Dry Shampoo

This is probably my favorite application of bentonite clay, because who has time to wash their hair every day? Using a pinch at a time, sprinkle bentonite clay across your scalp and massage in. Not only does it make a great dry shampoo, after a few days you may notice a bit more volume in your hair!
