Every autumn I always do some sort of detox, it’s kind of like fall cleaning of the body internally and externally. I’m a big fan of various clays and have used them in the past. I recently learned of a different clay and of its enormous attributes.
Pascalite Clay is a highly respected detoxing agent and some have deemed it more precious than gold. It was discovered by a French-Canadian trapper and prospector Emile Pascal in the 1930′. Pascal and friend Ray Pendergraft began experimenting with this cheese-like substance and discovered it was of value to ill and/or injured people unable to find relief through standard normal means.
Pascalite clay is a rare calcium bentonite/montmorillonite clay that was quickly recognized for its healing benefits. It contains boron, phosphorus, silicon, gallium, iron, vanadium, calcium, potassium, magnesium, titanium, sodium, chromium, manganese, barium, cobalt, nickel, cadmium, strontium, copper, and zirconium. Although the product is labeled for external use only, it definitely can be used internally. As a natural product, it will react differently to each of us or you may need to experiment a little to get the best results for yourself. So what are some uses?
Pascalite Clay is beneficial for skin conditions like acne and blemishes. It has been used successfully as a dietary supplement, digestive aid, colon cleanser, stomach upset, ulcers, throat, and sinus irritations. You can also use it to brush your teeth and has helped with the tooth, and gum problems.
It’s an excellent deodorant, it’s helped with diaper rash, and has even cleared ulcerated varicose veins. It’s helped with burns, skin rashes and disorders, cold sores, boils, spider bites, bee stings, rectal problems, sprains and aches, and infections
It’s been touted as a fabulous facial conditioner. It’s skin-tightening effect when used on the face is quite strong. It pulls the red blood cells to the skin surface, leaving your face temporarily red, so you know it’s effective. The drawing action is pulling the impurities out to the surface to be flushed away.
I put a teaspoon of clay every day in my smoothies, it’s tasteless and will thicken your drink slightly. You can add it to any fluid and adjust the amount to your needs. It will settle at the bottom of your drink, so you will have to drink it fairly quickly. If you don’t want to drink it, you can sprinkle a little on your food instead.
I’ve also used the clay as a facial mask, I leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes. It leaves your skin uber soft and smooth with a healthy glow. If you want really soft skin, but 1/4 cup in your bath and enjoy a nice hot soak for 30 minutes.
Pascalite clay is so resourceful and has multi-purpose uses. I think every homes medicine cabinet should have a bottle of this clay. It’s fabulous!
