Living Clay Dry Detox Powder
Detox Clay Powder is the premier clay for detoxing and deep cleansing. Used by the world’s finest spas and a common treatment in the world of pH Body Balance.
pH and Living Clay: The pH of Living Clay™ is 9.7, and thus internally and externally, it acts as an alkalizing agent for the body. The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Below 7 is acid and above 7 is alkaline. Because of clay’s homeostatic abilities, it helps balance the body’s pH level. It naturally creates balance. Clay baths are increasingly popular for detoxing, cleansing the skin and alancing the bodies pH levels.
On a molecular level, Robert T. Marin, a mineralogist at MIT, points to Bentonite’s minute particle size that creates a large surface area in proportion to the volume used. “The greater the surface area, the greater its power to pick up positively charged particles of ions.” Mr. Marin stated that one gram of clay has a surface area of 800 square meters. That equates to about 8 football fields in size. Thus, the greater the surface area, the greater the power to pick up positive charged ions many times its own weight. Swelling clays of the right mineral composition have a great potential for absorption.
Ingredients: All Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay
For topical use in wet clay form, mix 1 part clay to 3 parts water in a covered non-metallic container, shake well or blend, and let stand until smooth.
For detox baths: sprinkle up to 2 cups of powder clay lightly over bath water and stir to dissolve. Soak for 15-20 minutes (many add sea salt as well). Note here - have found that if you let the tub stand after your bath for about 30 min, then allow water to drain, you will have much of the remaining clay left on bottom for the next time. Also, adding high grade epsom or sea salt as well as essential oils, will enhance this bath.
