How Calcium Bentonite Clay Baths Work
Most of our customers drink calcium bentonite clay for detoxification. But bentonite clay baths can also be a great way to detoxify! Our skin is our largest organ and as a result, a powerful part of the amazing human body. Because it covers such a (relatively) large surface area, it is not only prone to injury and assault, but it can also be a great means by which to detox. Also, some people are not entirely comfortable with the idea of drinking clay, so a clay bath is a good alternative detox treatments. Clay baths not only detoxify and draw out impurities from the body, but they also provide relief to many with sore muscles and joints.
Which Bentonite Clay Is Best for Bathing?
In the book Using Energy to Heal by Wendell Hoffman, the researcher and author recommends soaking in a tub of very warm water and clay for 20 minutes to achieve the best results. We recommend starting with 8 ounces of clay in the bath for adults. He also advises that only a ‘clean’ clay be used. The clay should also not have any additives in it. Read the ingredients list of the package. Not all clays are created equally, as evidenced by the wide range of prices in the marketplace.
Benefits of Bentonite Clay Baths
In addition to detoxification, cleansing and pain relief, clay baths are believed to stimulate the lymphatic system. This is because the lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system. Since clay increases circulation within the body, it aids the flow of lymph through the system. This increase in circulation is also why the skin turns pink from a clay mask or bath. It is also believed to be the reason for pain relief from arthritis and rheumatism…circulation [blood flow] is brought to the areas where it is most needed.
