Monday Health & Wellness: Got Clay?

admin August 13, 2012

I don’t know about you, but we’re constantly trying to build up a decent medicine kit around here.  A natural one.  I don’t use any form of OTC or “mainstream” medicine at all (especially not for acute illnesses) and I’m even a bit wary of homeopathy after our recent experience with teething tablets (you’ll hear about that next week).  With so many different options out there, and many of them expensive, it’s hard to know what to include in your medicine cabinet and what not to.  It’s important to have all the basics covered, but you don’t want to have 50 different products on hand, either.  How are you supposed to remember what to use and when?

I’m becoming more choosy about what I really keep around.  I keep things that I really, actually use, that have been proven to help my family in a variety of situations.

Now — what works best *for us* may not be what works best *for you* and you should keep that in mind.  Everybody’s constitution and specific ailments/symptoms and best remedies is going to differ a bit.  This is a jumping off point for you to do some more research to see if what works for us does work for you!

What About Clay?

In this case, I’m talking about Bentonite clay, a specific type of clay that can be used for many different ailments.  We’ve personally used it in many ways and I really do like having it on hand.  It comes in many preparations, from plain ol’ dry powder to various creams, pills, and more.  Redmond Clay specifically (same parent company that makes Real Salt) makes all of these wonderful clay products.

Bentonite clay is a product that carries an electrical charge.  It is negatively charged, and most of the toxins and junk in your body are positively charged.  Therefore, when the clay is taken (it can be used safely internally or externally), it binds with the toxins and carries them safely out of your body.

Pretty neat, no?

Internally, clay can be used for:

  • Food poisoning
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomachaches
  • Indigestion
  • Acid reflux
  • Heart burn
  • Constipation
  • Detox
  • …and more

We have personally used it as a supplement to combat the general “junk” in the system, and did find that it seemed to help.  It’s handy to have around and to be taken at the first sign of illness, to hopefully head off nausea and vomiting.  It can be taken in capsule form, or dissolved in quite a bit of water and simply drunk.  It depends on how you prefer to take it.  Regardless, it is important to drink quite a bit of water, as the clay absorbs a lot, and this will help the “junk” move through your system and out.

Clay is safe to use, non-toxic and I haven’t yet heard of anyone being allergic to it.  For those concerned about achieving an alkaline pH balance, clay can assist with this when taken as a daily supplement.

Externally, clay can be used for:

  • Skin rashes
  • Bug bites
  • Stings
  • Cuts
  • Bruises
  • Acne
  • Aching joints
  • Detox bath
  • …and more!

Using clay as a facial mask can help draw the gunk out of your pores, clearing up your skin (this is probably the best-known use for clay).  Another popular use is in a bath, to pull the toxins out through your skin.  We have done this, and it helps, but it is very messy!

Our favorite use was for a wasp sting.  My 3-year-old was stung and came in the house complaining his arm was red.  I could use the small hole indicating a sting and I knew there were wasps in the backyard.  I administered a homeopathic remedy (apis) and put clay over the sting.  Within an hour, there was no more mark and he said it didn’t hurt anymore.

My husband also used the clay on some small yeast-related bumps on his arms and some poison ivy.  The clay helped to draw these out and heal.

Including Clay In Your Medicine Cabinet

So as you see, there are a lot of excellent uses for clay.  It’s very safe to use, and can be used on even younger babies safely (externally).  It has a multitude of uses, meaning that just one product can help with many common ailments — freeing up both space in your medicine cabinet and money!

The best idea is to get clay in at least two preparations, and possibly three.  These would be:

  • Plain powder (to be used as needed)
  • Liquid/paste preparation (to be used immediately on external issues, also travels well)
  • Pills (to be swallowed for internal issues, if you prefer pills to mixing the powder in liquid to drink)

Redmond Clay makes all of these preparations, as well as a clay-based toothpaste called Earthpaste!  We also loved the Earthpaste, because it’s a truly safe and beneficial toothpaste.  I don’t have to worry about my young children swallowing it.  It looks funny (it’s, well, clay-colored), but it tastes good and works well.  It’s so hard to find a truly safe option out there and this is the first one I actually feel good about recommending.  It’s fluoride-free, of course.

Why do you most want to try clay?  Or if you have before, what’s your favorite use?

This is the writings of:



  1. I would like to try adding this to my homemade toothpaste. Also love the idea of putting it in a foot bath! This would be a great addition to my medicine chest.

  2. Do we write on the company’s website (for the first requirement) or on here?

    • No, visit them and see what they’re about, then come back here and tell me what you like. 🙂

  3. I’d like to try clay because my hubs definitely has ADD, and it’s likely in our children as well (and probably undiagnosed in my side of the family too!). Being able to take something that helps take out toxins would be AWESOME!

  48. hi –

    this is so funny – i was just on their website yesterday and was going to order a tube of the First Aid (mosquitos just LOVE my daughter – and she gets huge welts when she gets bitten) when I read that some Whole Foods carry the product – so before i ordered i went to WF and found the tube right away. bought it and used it on my daughter – the welts did not get worse and the itch abated.

    Would love to win this!


  49. I’d most like to try their Earthpaste as I’ve heard wonderful things about it.

  50. I “like” Redmond Clay on Facebook!

  54. I have been weaning myself off of Nexium (which I have taken for almost ten years) and last week was my first week alternating just Prilosec with no antacids except Tums. I am having heartburn as I move into the home stretch (all other steps I had minor discomfort which went away quickly) and was looking for something to help me through this last phase to being medicine-free, and was reading that bentonite clay helps, so what I really want to try is the clay capsules. I would also like to try Earthpaste.

  55. I liked Eathpaste on FB!

  56. I like MAM on Facebook! Yay for the new baby 🙂

  61. I just found your blog the other day while researching the GAPS Diet for our family. My youngest son is battling a losing battle against eczema and we have used every OTC medicine and nothing is working and I am getting educated on what is in them and I just do not him on them anymore. A friend of ours gave us some clay to put on his skin and he was getting better but unfortunately the closest WF is hours away and we were going to order some online when I saw this post. I cannot go on their webpage right now for some reason, but I have liked all the pages on facebook 🙂 It is nice to see others wanting a more natural life out there; it helps when everyone around us thinks we are weird or just plain crazy 🙂

  62. I follow MAM on FB

  63. I want to try it for it’s internal and external benefits. We would probably use it more internally. Thankfully we don’t often have a need for first aid, but it’s always important to have things around just in case!

  64. I already like Redmond Clay on FB, but I did leave a note on their wall that you sent me. 🙂

  65. I already like Earthpaste on FB.

  66. I’m a fan of MAM on FB as well.

  68. Liked Redman Clay on Facebook and told them you sent me!

  69. I now like MAP on FB. So excited about the new site! I have PCOS that I am trying to see if I can change with real food, and also want to get pregnant. Collapsing cysts are so painful! And I hate not being able to get pregnant again. (I have two kids, both took about 3 yrs to conceive. My youngest is 7 and no more pregnancies since. 🙁

  84. I am interested in trying the Redmond clay in toothpaste because I’ve been searching for a more natural toothpaste for a while to get away from some of the additives found in “normal” toothpastes. I like that the clay has “antibacterial properties.”

  85. I’d like to try the powder. It looks like I can make all the other products once I get that!

  113. I am a wife, mother, grandmother to be, aunt, daughter, sister and RN for 35 yrs. I see so many uses for clay that I am totally mesmerized. Traditional medicine has its place but alternative care is vital to prevent the need for traditional interventions. I want to share the healing effects of clay clay and how it can help so many across the lifespan. I would love the opportunity to be able to personally use and then, in good faith, recommend this to everyone I know, personally and professionally.
