Hello and welcome to JADa Therapy

Today I am going to show some to the way that you can use bentonite clay.

I love using bentonite clay and have found it a real game changer in many ways.  I have been using bentonite clay for over five years now and I still have a lot more to learn about how truly amazing it is. Along with being an amazing product with many uses, it is also an inexpensive product to have in your cupboard.

What is Bentonite Clay?

Bentonite clay is a make-up of aged volcanic ash which is also known as ‘Montmorillonite’.  The name comes from one of the largest deposits of bentonite clay which is located in Fort Benton, Montana.

Bentonite clay is an odourless grey or cream in colour and a fine consistency.  What I really like about it is that it is really easy to work with.  When I am mixing it, it works well with my natural recipes.

Bentonite clay contains a high concentration of minerals such as:

  • Iron
  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Silica

It also absorbs and removes toxins, impurities, heavy metals and chemicals.

Bentonite clay is a common ingredient in many external detox and cleansing products such as:

  • Mud masks
  • Skin care products
  • Poultices
  • Detox baths

It is also used for internal use because of its amazing ability to have an alkalizing effect on the body when taken correctly.  It is really good for bringing balance to the gut bacteria.

Word Of Warning When handling Bentonite Clay

It is important to note that when you are using bentonite clay, you do not let it come into contact with anything metal, because the clay will draw any impurities from it, making it less effective.  Always use glass, wooded tools when handling it.  If you do not have glass or wooden items then use plastic.

Before I get into how to use bentonite clay I will answer a question that I get asked all the time and is where to buy bentonite clay?

Right let’s get back to the point of this article.


6 Tips How To use Bentonite Clay

Bentonite Clay On the Skin

You can use bentonite clay externally on your skin for:

  1. Blemishes
  2. Itchy skin
  3. Eczema
  4. Chickenpox
  5. Psoriasis
  6. Insect bites
  7. Cuts
  8. Burns
  9. Skin irritations

I make it into a paste with pure water and then add it to the area to be treated, leave it on until it dries and then wash it off.  You do not have to put a thick layer on.  I have found that a thin layer works just as well.


1.  Skin Poultice For Bug Bites / Stings /Cuts / Burns

When treating more severe skin issues, I would suggest using a poultice and you can do this by putting a thicker layer of bentonite clay on the affected area and then cover it over with a damp cloth.  You can leave this on for a couple of hours and if needed repeat the process.


2.  Bentonite Clay Face Mask

I love using bentonite clay as a face mask, it leaves my face feeling soft and smooth for days after applying.

Many beauty products have bentonite clay in their ingredients because of its ability to remove and bind to toxins and impurities.

For smoother and healthier skin you can mix bentonite clay with pure water, apply to your face and leave it on for approximately 30 minutes or until it dries and then wash it off with warm water.

You can use this face mask once or twice a week.


3.  Bentonite Clay As An Armpit Detox

You can use bentonite clay as an armpit detox.  I personally think that this is important in unclogging the pores in the armpits.  Why?  Because it helps in making our lymph glands work more effectively.

You can make this two ways, the first way is the same as you would make it for the skin, with pure water and the second way is with apple cider vinegar, apply it in a circular motion and leave until dry then wash off.


4.  Detox Bath with Bentonite Clay

You can add ¼ cup of bentonite clay to your bath water for a really relaxing detox bath and added softer skin.


5.  Bentonite Clay For Internal Cleansing And Digestion Problems

Always check with your medical advisor before taking bentonite clay internally.

Also always check that they bentonite clay that you are buying is for internal use.

You could start with ½ a teaspoon and work your way up to 1 teaspoon in a cup of pure water.  I tend to make my Bentonite clay drink in a glass jar with plastic lid so that I can give it a good shake before drinking it, to ensure that it is thoroughly mixed.

This drink will improve digestion problems and give you more energy.  I have found this.

When using bentonite clay internally, Take an hour before and or after food and two hours before or after taking medication as the clay will reduce the effectiveness of your medication.
