What the heck is bentonite clay and what can it do for me? Bentonite clay is volcanic ash known for it’s detoxifying properties. It is used to help remove toxins, heavy metals and chemicals through your pores. I’ve started experimenting with bentonite clay baths to see if I noticed any major differences. I’m all about testing out holistic alternatives and detoxes to achieve optimal health.
Earlier in the week, I did some online research to make sure I was ordering the real deal. I ended up ordering Perfect Body Harmony Clay. It is labeled as pharmaceutical grade and guaranteed to be free of bacteria, mold and viruses. I certainly do not want to expose myself to more toxins during a detox.
Simply add a few scoops to your bath and break up the pieces until it has been dissolved evenly in the tub. Once it has been dissolved, soak for fifteen to thirty minutes to gain the full benefit. Simple enough!
It was a little creepy jumping into a gray colored bath but I was willing to take my chances. The first thing I noticed was how soft my skin felt immediately after getting in. After soaking in the bath for a few minutes, I noticed a tingling in my skin and I could feel my blood pumping a bit. I felt my body working throughout the soaking session and this feeling continued after I got out.
The next day is when I noticed a significant difference. I felt an improvement in my energy and overall felt clearer. How do I know it was the bath and not just feeling great the next day? I took another bath the following week to see if I could replicate the results and sure enough I felt the same way the next day.
Overall, taking a bentonite clay bath was a relaxing experience. I felt a little tired afterwards but other than nothing weird. It was worth it to feel really great the next day. Always hydrate like crazy before any after any detox!
