How is calcium bentonite clay different from other clays?
The calcium bentonite clay is a part of Smectite group which makes them unique such that they swell while absorbing (draws toxic substances into its internal structure — similar to absorbing the water from sponge) and adsorbing (substances stick to the outside surface of the clay molecule) substances into the clay internal structure. The clays that are part of Smectite group are used for healing purposes 99 out of 100 times.

Instructions of application of calcium bentonite paste/gel:
The ratio of hydrating calcium bentonite clay is 1 unit of dry clay to 2 – 2.5 units of water. This will make a paste perfect for application on your face/body. You can also make it thicker or thinner according to your requirement of units of clay and water. However always remember: French Green Clay does not swell as much as our calcium bentonite clay.
The distilled water could be too pure and it could make your skin dry, so use tap water or normal bottled mineral water containing minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium. This will not make your skin dry and will spread out perfectly on the face. Always begin by making the small amount of clay to get desired consistency. For example, if the clay is too ‘runny’, use l cup clay to 2 cups water or if it is too thick, use one cup clay to 3 cups water. We suggest you mix the mixture of clay and water with the help of mixture or blender. If you choose to mix by hand, you can use a wooden or plastic spoon as an alternative to metal. The bentonite clay has the ability to extract all the metal out into the clay. The end product will be a creamy, smooth, yoghurt-like substance. If you hold the container in one hand and tap it with the other hand, you should be able to feel the clay ‘bounce’. This means the clay is ready to use in whatever way you choose.
Using and applying hydrated clay:
You can apply the clay on your face as a mask with thick layer or thin layer – it is up to you. You need to allow that to dry naturally or can keep wool or cotton that. If you do not wish to cover the clay, use a fine-mist spray bottle filled with a good quality mineral water and mist frequently to keep moist until you are ready to wash it off thoroughly.
Taking a clay bath once in a while could be good for your body and mind relaxation. It will cleanse and detoxify your entire body. You can also make a clay ball and put it inside your body for detoxification.
