In case you don’t know what it is, bentonite clay is a healing clay. Also called medicinal clays, healing clays are substances found in nature. They are made up of soil, minerals, metal oxides, and organic matter. These clays possess healing properties that have beneficial effects in health. Indeed, the clays are used for medicinal purposes, which include treating skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and chicken pox.
Bentonite clay can also remove other harmful substances, such as certain chemicals, heavy metals, and even radiation. Thus, this healing clay can be used to get rid of the impurities the fruits and vegetables you eat may have. To be precise, you can make a solution of some bentonite and water for washing these food items that will be more effective than any solution you’ve ever used.
If you’d like to make some of this solution, you’ll need:
1/4 cup of bentonite clay
1 qt of room-temperature, purified water
In a nonmetallic bowl, mix together the bentonite clay and the room-temperature, purified water.
To best use the solution, you should
- Submerge the fruits and/or vegetables you’ll eat in the solution.
- Leave these food items alone for 10 minutes.
- Rinse and then dry the food items.*
- Store the food items.
*To avoid unwittingly contaminating the fruits and vegetables, rinse them with purified water and then dry them with a clean piece of cloth or some tissue paper. You may also let them air- dry, but make sure that you leave them in a clean spot.
Since it can draw harmful substances into itself like a sponge, you may use bentonite to purify the water you drink as well. To do so:
- Pour 1 oz of bentonite clay into 1 gal of water.
- Wait for the clay to settle at the bottom.
- Pour the water through a fine sieve.
- Throw away the caught bentonite clay.
- Enjoy the purified water.
