You might have heard of a miracle Aztec Healing Clay that all the beauty gurus are raving about. Aztec Healing Clay is just a fancier name for a bentonite clay. In my humble opinion, this is one of the best clays out there. Bentonite clay is known for its powerful detoxifying properties. It can be used both externally (face masks, full body baths) and internally (clay drinks). It is so effective at detoxifying that it is used to clear up cases of heavy metal poisoning and radiation buildup.
The reason in bentonite clays effectiveness lays in its origin. It has formed from volcanic ash deposits that settled on the earth. Over hundreds of thousands of years it absorbed a variety of earth’s nutrients and is now in the form as we know it. Once bentonite clay is mixed with water it’s electrical components change and produce a negative electrical charge. This electrical charge comes from the thermodynamic heat and volcanic action that created it. It provides clay with the ability to absorb toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals. Due to its ability to draw impurities and oil from the pores, bentonite clay masks are often used as acne treatments.
