How to prepare powdered bentonite clay

You'll look and feel wonderful after only a few minutes of treatment with our Pure Calcium Bentonite Clay. Our Tachyon-optimized Calcium Bentonite Clay contains more than 70 trace minerals. When hydrated, it generates and maintains a very strong electromagnetic field, which allows it to attract and hold unwanted non-nutritive substances such as pesticides and other toxins so that they can be eliminated from the body. Use as a face mask or a full body treatment!

A single facial application will take only 1 tsp of clay and about 4 tsp of pure water. To make an effective beauty mask at home, first wash your face using warm water to open the pores. Next, apply a thin paste of Pascalite and leave on for about 10 minutes or until completely dry. Rinse off with warm water, then close pores with a cold water rinse. After your face is dry apply thin film of olive oil to lock in moisture. Voila! You look years younger!

Preparing powdered bentonite is not difficult, but may require some patience if you are mixing up a large amount for a full body treatment or for a "girls-night-out spa party". On average, the amount of water required to properly hydrate bentonite will be from four to five times the amount of clay, by volume. For every one cup of bentonite, at least four cups of water will be required to fully hydrate the clay to produce a magma that can be considered colloidal.

While there is not one single method to prepare clay, our experience suggests the following method:

1. Add the powdered clay to the container, layering it not more than three inches thick. If one is making more clay, add about 4 times the water to the container at this point, then add another "layer" of powdered clay, again, not more than three inches deep. This process can be repeated.

2. If the layering method is not used, then once the powdered clay is in the container, the water is then added.

3. It takes time for the clay to hydrate. If one finds that the powdered clay is not adsorbing water, then one may gently create small holes from the top to the bottom of the container, which will allow the water to penetrate to the bottom of the container.

4. Mixing the clay is not recommended and you should apply caution when handling powdered clay: avoid breathing in the fine powder. If necessary, one can "turn" the clay by taking the clay that is on the bottom of the container and moving it to the top.

The end product should be a gel substance without clumping. The more one interferes in the process, the greater the chance of clumping. When placed in a container, one should be able to feel a "bounce" to the clay, by holding the container in one hand and tapping it with the other.

If the clay is not hydrated enough, it is easy to add small amounts of water. We recommend creating medium sized holes ( if a large container is used to make the clay ) that penetrate to the bottom of the container, and slowly adding water so that the water fills from the bottom of the container up. No mixing is required. Simply allow the clay to set and expand. And enjoy!
