Redmond Clay bentonite (montmorillonite) powder – All Natural – DIY uses

Lets drink some more of that muddy water!

Oh yea, I love it!


So you have heard how great taking bentonite clay is for diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, stomachache, acid indigestion, acid reflux, and other digestive problems & more. But the thought of it just turns you off. Well for many drinking cloudy muddy water is an issue they can not get past & Redmond does carry them in capsule form, but I highly recommend you stay to taking Bentonite clay in water for best results. And It really is not as Redmondbad as it looks if you give it a chance & do it right. After all we have really been spoiled with lifeless filtered water, by adding Bentonite clay water is more like nature intended it to be, water is supposed to be drank, with all the original minerals & sediment included for far better health. Trust me drinking clay in a glass of water for many is like the worst thing to ever do, but it so does not have to be that way, buy again if you still struggle & just cant drink it capsules are an option.

The Directions Internal use on the container are: Take 1 to 2 tsp of Redmond clay with juice or water daily.

Redmond 1That doesn’t sound to bad now does it? Well it for sure to me does not sound bad but for many that would be a “Oh my goodness you want me to try & get down how much?” So here is what I suggest, start off with like 1/8 tsp of clay powder & stir into 4 to 8 ounces of water (or more if needed) & drink that amount every day until you are used to it, then start adding another 1/8 tsp every day or so until you get to 1 tsp. Or if you start getting desired results from less than 1 tsp just stay to that amount, or continue to slowly build to 2 tbsp if needed.

I have to admit this Redmond clay is nice & smooth & not at all gritty (at least for me) It is also less muddy & lighter in color looking than my normal brand. But so far it works just as well & I can tell by taste that it is a good quality clay. But I have tried a lot of brands of clay that were junk, had additives, were not pure & that tasted & felt funky. So this Redmond clay is only the 3rd brand that has been totally awesome enough for me to say,” yes this one is great”.

How do I take it, I add about 1/2 tsp to about 8 oz of water & we pass it around (me & my kids sharing) twice a day. I also add several pinches to our gallon glass jug of water we dink.

Not only is Redmond clay great to take, it also is great for skin & hair. Mix with enough water to create a paste & make a face mask, apply & leave on until dry & wash off. You can use this same mixture as a hair mask before washing your hair, great for detoxing hair & scalp & to remove hair products. You can also add a tbsp or 2 to your bath water for a great detox & skin softening effect & as a plus it can help remove toxins from the bath water.
