Redmond ClayRedmond Clay, 10 oz by REAL SALT | 018788902553
Redmond Real Salt Redmond Clay is an Old Home Remedy. Redmond Clay has been used for generations to help support digestive health. For thousands of years, primitive people carried a ball of clay with them in their packs. Some of this clay was dissolved in water and ingested with their meals. Clay was the nautral medicine used by the natives for fighting many stomach ailments, dysentery and food infections.
Millions of years ago, long before the earth knew pollutants of any kind, a range of volcanoes erupted, spreading volcanic ash across the ancient Sundance Sea. The water in this sea evaporated, leaving behind a bed of mineral-rich bentonite. Near the small town of Redmond, Utah, we carefully extract this ancient volcanic ash, now resting deep within the earth, and bring it to you in its pure, natural state. Redmond Clay contains more than 50 natural trace minerals essential to human health.
Mix the Redmond Clay with water to make a gel the consistency of mustard. Then apply the gel/paste directly on the skin for a drawing effect, as in the case of a bee sting, mosquito bite, boil, spider bite, stinging nettle, etc. If the clay is not covered it will dry out, and as it dries, you will feel it draw and pull. If you want a tightening effect, as in the case of a facial for acne, pimples, or minor cuts, leave it on until it is almost, but not totally dry, then remove. If you want a more cooling and soothing effect, as for burns or scrapes and bruises, cover the gel with a plastic covering or wet cloth so it won't dry out. To remove the clay pack, simply wash it off with water and a gentle rubbing motion. Do not reuse the clay pack. Other external uses have been as a talcum powder or a diapering powder.
Redmond Clay has been taken once or twice daily with or without food, as desired, by mixing 1 heaping tablespoon of the mixed gel in 1/2 glass of cold water or juice. There is no laboratory proof that Redmond Clay is effective for any internal disorders, but people have taken the clay on a full stomach for acid indigestion or heart burn for its cooling effect. Taking the clay on an empty stomach in the evening has been known to bring relief for ulcers. Some people have felt that its ability to absorb water is beneficial for constipation. In the same sense, it seems to absorb moisture thereby relieving diarrhea.
