How to Use Redmond Clay for the First Time
When starting the clay internally, go slow. Start with 1/3 tsp daily and drink plenty of water. During the 2nd week, take 2/3 tsp, working your way up to 1 tsp of clay a day.
Use ONLY wooden, ceramic or glass utensils to mix clay with water. NEVER use metal or ordinary plastic materials. Since clay acts as 'magnet', it will attract metal and plastic particles present inside these materials, which in turn will make clay 'non-active' and useless.
How to Prepare Redmond Clay for Internal Uses
Redmond Clay can be taken once or twice daily with or without food, as desired, by mixing 1 heaped teaspoon of powder in 1/2 glass of cold water or juice. Simply fill the glass with liquid and put a teaspoon of powder onto its surface. Leave it be for a few hours to activate. After a few hours, you will see the powder has completely submerged into liquid and is no longer lumpy. Stir or shake the liquid and clay powder to mix the two. Drink it. Make sure you hydrate well throughout the day.

How to Prepare Redmond Clay for External Uses
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. 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 more cooling and soothing effect, cover the gel with a plastic covering or wet cloth so it wont 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.
How to pre-mix Redmond Clay for ready-to-use gel
Mix two parts water with one part Redmond Clay to make a gel or mud. You can use a blender or mixer to speed up the process or you can just shake or stir by hand and then wait 3-4 hours for the clay to activate. It should make a mud the consistency of mustard. If it seems too thin, add more clay. If it seems too thick add more water. Keep the gel in a covered, non-metallic container and it will not dry out and will not separate. It stores with or without refrigeration for an indefinite period. If it does dry out over prolonged storage, just add water and remix.
