What does French clay do and how does it do it?

 

FRENCH GREEN CLAY French Green Argiletz Clay is the most absorbing of the Clays, it contains numerous valuable elements, which include magnesium, calcium, potassium, dolomite, silica, phosporous, silicon, copper and selenium, these are just a few of the well known elements there are many more. Green Clay increases circulation and balances skin oils, Green Clay absorbs dirt, oil and bacteria from your skin yet gently cleans the pores. Especially good for oily skin, it literally drinks oils and impurities from the skin and body.Other useful uses can be for sore muscles and sprains, bruises, age spots and minor burns by mixing a poultice and applying to the affected location.The absorbing qualities of green clay also make useful for internal use and can help and remove many positively charged toxins from your system, more on this on a later date.

How to make a poultice or face mask for external use.

  • In a ceramic or glass container (avoid metal) container mix clay with an equal amount of warm spring water (avoid tap water) starting with a little less water to form a paste.
  • Apply paste to burns, sores, cuts and bites to retard the growth of bacteria and stimulate the growth of healthy tissue. If the area to be covered is large wrap in bandages and leave overnight if possible.
  • For a Face Mask exfoliate your skin first, exfoliating your skin first prepares it for the mask ( we recommend a gentle exfoliate such as our Goats Milk and Oatmeal soap.
  • Place a small amount of prepared clay in palm and gently apply a thin layer onto your face. If you are using for the first time we recommend you apply to a small area for 5-10 minutes and if OK then apply to the rest of face and allow to dry for for 10-15 minutes the first time and increase to 15-30 minutes on further occasions.
  • Once the clay is dry rinse with warm water and pat not rub the skin dry.
  • Finish with one of your favorite moisturizes, you can select one from our body care range for a great finish.
  • TIP! Green clay draws its energy from the sun, if you have stored it away from light place it directly in the sun for a few hours, this will allow the clay to revitalize and increase the benefits for your skin.

How to use internally.

  • If possible the clay should be prepared several hours or the night before.
  • Place one teaspoon size (avoid metal) of clay in a glass or ceramic mug half filled with fresh water (once again avoid tap water)
  • Take the clay first thing in the morning or at night before going to bed.
  • The average daily dose is one teaspoon (1/2 for children up to 10)

Diatomaceous EarthDiatomaceous Earth

How does it work? Diatomaceous Earth is a form of silica that can kill insects by desiccation and absorbing their waxy, oily outer layer. When this thin waterproof layer is damaged the insect or insect egg loses water and dies, the microscopically razor sharp edges which works as an abrasive sandpaper to kill the insects. This action is a mechanical not pesticidal one. In addition to its desiccant action it works by abrasively to rupture insect cuticles.
