General Uses of Healing Clays

Bentonite & Healing Clays as Used in Alternative and Natural Medicine

Oasis in the desert - Eytons' EarthA cloudy heaven is not a bruised sky
Tears, forsaken and cast into notness
Leave the heart adrift.
Life is born to die but not born dead!
And Death IS the ultimate forgiver of life.
Spirit oh Fountain Of Youth!
Mind, thee our philosopher's stone of old!

For the sky rains thoughts and the Earth my body drinks
While lightning pounds my soul: The ground
Aye illness is the thunderous sound
Yet by Lord and by way
Thy cure is always written into play...
Oh Death, where is thy sting?

Using healing clay...

Featured: Did You Know...?

  From Anion A of Switzerland, to Fuller's Earth of the U.S. Midwest, to Argiletz's French Green clay in France, to the fine glacier clays of Canada, to the Dead Sea Muds of the middle east, to the vibrant green bentonites of Wyoming, to the pale grey bentonites of Death Valley, montomorillonite, bentonite, illite, and zeolite have held a long standing reputation for curative powers in natural medicine.



External Uses of Healing Clay

Topical Clay Treatments: Clay Packs, Compresses and Masks

Bone and Muscle Damage due to Traumatic Injury

Clay pack applied immediately after injury, applied 1/2 - 1 inch thick and covered, changed as needed (1/2 - 12 hrs.), duration to maximum tolerance.


Carpal Tunnel Sydrome

Clay pack wrapped around entire area if possible, 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick, covered, for 20 minutes to an hour initially, increased to overnight applications as tolerance permits, for three days to three weeks.


Treatment of Internal Organs

Clay compress (dressing saturated with hydrated clay) applied to cover the organ for 20 minutes per application to start, tolerance carefully monitored, extended to 1 hour applications as tolerable, progress to clay pack and 20 minute treatments, then to one hour as tolerance permits-- as needed with internal cleansing support.


Chronic Headaches

Clay pack applied to the nape of the neck for twenty minutes, then applied to the forehead for twenty minutes (continue to alternate as needed)


Skin Conditions (acne, eczema, rashes, more...)

Depending on the condition, clay compresses or clay packs can be used (any cystic condition requires dense packs applied for an extended amount of time).


Rapid healing of injuries (bruises, sprains, burns, etc.)

Thick clay packs applied to sprangs, bruises, breaks, ect. Thin clay strips, covered, or compresses applied to burns. For any injury that includes a break in the skin, never allow the clay to dry. Simply change out the dressing as needed.


Severe Bacterial Infections

Wound cleaned thoroughly with liquid bentonite, clay packs applied at least 1/2 inch thick, dressings changed as often as required due to drainage, never allow clay to dry on damaged tissues.


Skin rejuvenation and deep cleansing

One to twelve cups of bentonite added to a hot bath; hydrated bentonite used as a normal soap; clay masks applied to the skin; clay formulations used in a massage treatment.



Clay must be used internally and immediately. Clay baths repeated to tolerance with as much hydrated clay as the individual can tolerate ( based on their stamina ) for 20 minutes to one hour. Compresses or thick clay wraps, alternating treatment to key locations of the body (targeting the lymphatic system and primary organs, treatments based on tolerance).

Skin graft donor sites (special treatment only)

See the page on an experimental skin graft donor site treatment.


Eye strain

Thick clay packs applied to both closed eyes, covered and left on from between 20 to 90 minutes.


Cancer / Tumors / Skin Cancer

Clay packs applied directly to the effected area, first for 20 minutes, and then repeated to tolerance.

Gall stones (special treatment recommended)

External uses for green healing clay...

It is highly recommended that all external treatments with healing clays be combined with a gentle internal cleansing program designed to support the body's elimination system and liver function.

Example of a clay pack after application to a wound for several hoursNotice the different moisture levels through the clay, and the minute concentric circles visible on the clay surface. Although this wound was non-bleeding and fully debrided before treatment, it is obvious that the incredible sorptive properties of the clay evacuated a great deal of organic matter from the wound. This results in several things: The reduction of edema, the support of the immune/lymphatic system, and overall support for the healing process.

Surprising things can happen during such treatments. This particular treatment, since it was over the lower intenstines, resulted in the elimination of a bowel obstruction or possibly even a cancerous growth.

Internal uses of Healing Clays

Bentonite Used Orally

Using an uncontamined green healing clay interally can be advantageous for general health. Traditionally, only small amounts of hydrated clay are required to achieve the following benefits:

  • Detoxification of the digestive system (the sorptive action of clay pulls contaminants from the body)

  • Bacterial, organic and non-organic toxicity

  • Elimination of internal parasites ( digestive tracts )

  • Immune System Support ( clay used internally stimulates the body's elimination system and supports organ function )

  • Fixes free oxygen in the blood stream ( occurs once the liver has been restored to full function )

  • Increases T-cell count

  • Fights free radicals

  • Mercury poisoning!

  • Trace mineral supplementNatural Bentonite - Eytons' Eartj
