Taking a bath in Bentonite Clay is said to draw out heavy metals and toxins from our body, right through the skin. The more toxic a person is the darker and slimier the clay will be after you are done with the bath.
Draw a bath with warm water and add 2-2.5 lbs. of Bentonite Clay*. Soak in the bath and apply the clay to your glands (neck, armpits, back of knees, etc) to help pull out heavy metals. Soak in the clay for at least 20 minutes, preferably 1 hour.
Leave the clay and bath water in the tub over night, or for two hours. The clay will have settled to the bottom. Drain the water out and when empty, use paper towels to wipe the clay out of the tub. Notice what color it is. The darker it is or even streaked black, then you will be sure that the clay did its job pulling out heavy metals!
* Bentonite Clay Powder is made up of a high number of tiny platelets with negative electrical charges on their flat surfaces and positive charges on their edges. When bentonite clay absorbs water it swells up to anywhere from double to triple its size; in other words, it is stretched open like a highly porous sponge. When bentonite clay is taken into one’s body, metals and toxins are drawn into the ‘sponge’ through electrical attraction and bonding.
