Just apply a generous amount of Pre-hydrated Redmond Clay® over the affected area and cover with cling film to keep it moist. Remove after about 20min or when you start feeling the heat on the surface. Repeat as necessary.
We also recommend the following book - Earth Cures by Raymond Dextreit for plenty of 'recipes' and 'How to Use Clay' info. Redmond Clay® is a natural substance and as such it works differently for each person. While we cant guarantee the same positive results for everybody, Redmond Trading Company have personally used, or seen it used, for problems with beneficial results.
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.
Detoxification: Apply it as a slurry to the skin and allow it to dry (1/2 hr - 2 hrs) then clean off. You can also mix several tablespoons - 1/2 cup to 2 cups of the clay into your bath water and soak in it for 45 min or longer. Foot baths with the clay also are great. FYI 1 to 2 hr clay facials leave a youthful soft and tingling feeling and look to your skin!
Skin Problems: Apply a slurry of the clay to the affected area and wrap with a cotton cloth to form a poultice. To prevent it from drying out too fast you may also wrap the cloth with plastic. Great for rosacea, eczema, rashes (including diaper - sprinkle it on dry at diaper changes), boils, bone felons (inflammation of outer bone membrane – periosteum), hang nails, infections of all kinds (including fungus) cuts, wounds, bruises, etc.
Bites and Stings: Apply immediately to bites and stings of all kinds (while you're seeking immediate medical help as need be) - snake, spider, other bugs, bees, wasps, dogs, cats, (scratches as well) etc.
Why Use Redmond Clay®
There are two most known types of clay; sodium bentonite and calcium bentonite clay. Redmond Clay® actually comes from one of the most unique clay deposits discovered so farrich in both calcium and sodium. The unique composition is one reason Redmond Clay works so well in so many ways the sodium content helps makes it more effective externally, while still sharing the benefits of taking clay internally.
The source of clay mine must be in unpolluted environment and the mining process must not be affected with any metal equipment. Both criteria are fulfilled by Redmond Trading Company.
