Bentonite Green Clay - Calcium, 1 lb.(GBCP-1)
Our Calcium Bentonite Green Clay is carefully harvested to preserve the naturally occurring trace minerals found in it, including calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. It is most beneficial when used externally as a purifying mask, bath or poultice.
This green clay is carefully harvested from naturally occurring volcanic ash in the USA and contains high levels of numerous trace minerals, including calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. It is most beneficial when used externally as a purifying mask, bath or poultice. Like a mask at the spa, Bentonite mixed with water makes an excellent purifying mask to help draw out excess oils and debris, removing blackheads and minimizing pores as it boosts circulation and stimulates blood flow for a beautiful, glowing complexion.
Bentonite Clay is being recognized more and more for the amazing benefits that it has. It is full of minerals, but what it is growing in popularity for, is its detoxing abilities. All Bentonite has at least 30% of montmorillonite in it, and montmorillonite is also in other mineral composites. The montmorillonite Bentonite Clay contains ions. The ions act as a magnet with an electrical charge that draws the opposite charge. All types of Bentonite have negative charged ions which bond to positive charged particles. That is a really good thing! You know how they say living in the country, breathing fresh air from plants, the wood, the ocean, and waterfall spray (and bentonite clay) are all good for you? They all have negative ions which attract and absorb positive ions, like heavy metals, allergens, and many other toxins. Because of bentonite clay’s powerful detoxing abilities, people use it for odors, purifications, baths, masks, products, and so much more.
Calcium Bentonite vs. Sodium Bentonite
The difference between calcium and sodium bentonite clay is the higher levels of those minerals. You can take calcium bentonite clay and add salt and it would be sodium bentonite. Calcium is also found at higher elevations and is a cleaner clay. Both clays have at least 30% of montmorillonite in it, but montmorillonite is also in other mineral composites. Montmorillonite has high levels of negative ions that help with detoxification. The higher the levels of montmorillonite, the higher the value. Incidentally the more impure the bentonite, the higher the sodium content.
Calcium Bentonite obviously has more calcium than sodium. It is often more alkaline. Calcium Bentonite is taken internally and used externally. It expands in size, but not as much as Sodium Bentonite. Calcium Bentonite Clay is encapsulated and used in all kinds of consumables, salves, detox mixes and more.
Sodium Bentonite clay soaks up water quickly and swells up to 15x its size. Taken internally without drinking a lot of water can cause constipation. Sodium Bentonite clay is often used in everything from industrial uses, products, bath soaks, poultices and more. It is usually more of an external clay because of the impurities.
Rejuvenating Bentonite Clay Face Mask
Pamper yourself with this luxurious face mask that will leave your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- 1 tablespoon plain organic yogurt
- 1 tablespoon raw Organic Honey
- about 2 tablespoons Bentonite Clay Powder
- a few pinches of Celtic Sea Salt

- (You can also add some Tropical Black Tea to the recipe for a wonderful fruity smell instead of the essential oil!)
HOW TO MAKE IT...
Mix all ingredients together and apply to face, neck, and back. The cooling, soothing feeling your skin gets after applying the mask is almost as fun as peeling it off when it dries, which takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Then enjoy your smooth, clean, rejuvenated skin!
Bentonite Clay Bath
Sodium Bentonite Clay is so good for so many different things! One of my favorite ways to use it is as a face mask and luxurious bath.
BENTONITE CLAY BATH HOW TO
- Draw a bath with warm water and add 2 to 2 1/2 lbs. of Sodium Bentonite Clay. Soak in the bath and apply the clay to your glands (neck, armpits, back of knees, etc) to help pull out heavy metals. Soak in the clay for at least 20 minutes - preferably 1 hour for full detox benefits.
- Leave the clay and bath water in the tub over night. In the morning, all the clay will have settled to the bottom. Drain the water out and when empty, use paper towels to wipe the clay out of the tub. Notice anything different about the clay this time? If it was darker or streaked black, then you can be sure that the clay did its job pulling out heavy metals!
Bentonite Clay Toothpaste Recipe
Try our Bentonite Clay Toothpaste, made with all natural ingredients that you can make at home!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- 3 cups water
- 1 tablespoon Stevia Herb
- 1 1/2 cups Cinnamon Sticks
- 4 tablespoons Whole Cloves
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
- 1 - 1 1/2 cups Bentonite Clay Powder
HOW TO MAKE IT...
- Mix the first four ingredients in a medium saucepan, and simmer 30 minutes. While that’s heating, mix 1 tablespoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt and set aside.
- Next, place 1 cup of Bentonite Clay into a glass bowl. Note: it is important to use a glass bowl and wooden spoon because when the Bentonite Clay gets wet, it sets up an electromagnetic reaction which will absorb the particles inside of a metal bowl, or the toxins out of a plastic one.
- Remove saucepan from heat and strain off herbs, catching the liquid in a glass bowl. Slowly add the salt and baking soda mixture. Expect it to foam and bubble. This is the cinnamon and the baking soda reacting to each other. While it is still frothing, pour the liquid mixture into the bowl of Bentonite Clay, and whisk briskly. The foam will start to settle down and a smooth paste should start to form.
- Continue to add the remaining Bentonite Clay until the desired consistency is reached. Store in glass jars and avoid any contact with absorbable metals.
- That’s it! You’ve just made your own natural toothpaste!
