This clay mask is the perfect for pulling toxins out of our skin. Your skin is your bodies largest organ and is exposed to the elements, so it takes in a lot of toxins everyday and using emollients (comfrey powder) to soften dry, dead, and flakey skin, and clay (french green and calcium bentonite) to pull toxins out of your softened skin, is a wonderful way to draw the toxins you have accumulated in your skin out to be washed down the drain. Calcium Bentonite clay is created through the natural aging process of volcanic ash.
Our everyday lives expose us to pesticides, lead, and trace metals like copper, on a regular basis. These toxins can accumulate in the body and keep it from functioning correctly.
Bentonite clay, French Green clay, and Comfrey Powder have been studied and found to absorb these toxins and others.
French Green Clay
Calcium Bentonite Clay
Mix equal parts clay/comfrey mixture with either water or apple cider vinegar, then add water or apple cider vinegar as needed until you get the consistency you desire. The finished product should be easy to spread, but not a liquid consistency. If you add too much liquid, you can always add more clay/comfrey mixture to thicken it up. Spread over your face and neck, or wherever desired, and leave it on for 30 to 45 minutes. If you use apple cider vinegar you will feel your skin pulsate, that is normal. It will start to harden as it pulls toxins out of your skin. You can remove it with a wet wash cloth, but I like to simply cup warm to hot water in my washed hands and use it to soften the hardened clay on my face. I continue to do this until all the clay has softened and fallen away from my skin without having to dirty a clean wash cloth.
** Never mix your clay/comfrey mixture with your water or apple cider vinegar using a metal bowl or spoon! It will ruin the consistency of the clay mask, making it very sticky and gelatinous.
Some people also enjoy using this the powder on their hair in the shower as a leave in conditioner to soften and detoxify their hair.
