Preparing Powdered Clay for Use

325 mesh bentonite, technical grade, before hydration
 
Hydrated bentonite - when this "magma" sets for a period of 24 - 72 hours, it will have actually thickened

A common 325 mesh "technical grade" bentonite powder before hydration, placed in a five gallon glass container ( The brand shown is Whittaker ).

 

Five gallons of hydrated bentonite ( not "set" yet ) created by adding 24 cups of water. Notice the amount of volume of hydrated clay that was created solely by adding water.

Preparing Powdered Clay for External Use

Preparing powdered bentonite for external use is not difficult, but may require some patience. On average, the amount of water required to properly hydrate bentonite will be from four to five times the amount of clay, by volume. For every one cup of bentonite, at least four cups of water will be required to fully hydrate the clay to produce a magma that can be considered colloidal.

While there is not one single method to prepare clay, our experience suggests the following method:

1. Add the powdered clay to the container, layering it not more than three inches thick. If one is making more clay, add about 4 times the water to the container at this point, then add another "layer" of powdered clay, again, not more than three inches deep. This process can be repeated.

2. If the layering method is not used, then once the powdered clay is in the container, the water is then added.

3. It takes time for the clay to hydrate. If one finds that the powdered clay is not adsorbing water, then one may gently create small holes from the top to the bottom of the container, which will allow the water to penetrate to the bottom of the container.

4. Mixing the clay is not recommended. If neccessary, one can "turn" the clay by taking the clay that is on the bottom of the container and moving it to the top.

5. Complete hydration can take from 48 hours to five days, depending on the clay and the amount of clay being made.

The end product should be a gel substance without clumping. The more one interferes in the process, the greater the chance of clumping. When placed in a container, one should be able to feel a "bounce" to the clay, by holding the container in one hand and tapping it with the other.

If the clay is not hydrated enough, it is easy to add small amounts of water. We recommend creating medium sized holes ( if a large container is used to make the clay ) that penetrate to the bottom of the container, and slowly adding water so that the water fills from the bottom of the container up. No mixing is required. Simply allow the clay to set and expand.

Apply caution when handling processed powdered clay. One should avoid breathing in the fine powder.

Preparing Powdered Clay for Internal Use

Using a powdered clay internally is very simple. Simply take one tablespoonful of bentonite and add it to about eight ounces of water, and thoroughly mix until the clay is completely combined with the water.

For those who are considering the long term use of bentonite internally, one can create a bentonite gel, similiar to the mixture used externally, and take a tablespoonful daily. This is not recommended for those who have not previously used bentonite internally to acclimate the body to use.

Subject: making a colloid

I'm trying my first go at making a colloid clay solution. I think we have some sort of green clay, maybe it's an illite. It's marked for cosmetic use, but I'm not worried about this yet.

I added 8 ounces water to 2 tbls clay and shook it up. the clay has just settled on the bottom and doesn't seem like it's mixing. is this because i have too much water?

edit: basically I'm just trying to make a cheap version of the Sonne's colloid as it is pretty expensive.
