Green Clay, also known as illite, is an organic powerhouse comprised of iron oxides, decomposed plant material (such as kelp and seaweed), and a host of essential minerals! It was called French Green Clay for centuries, being named after the rock quarries in the south of France that yielded most of the world’s illite deposits, however our European Green Clay is mined from the pristine shores of Italy! Green Clay is used in alternative health practices for its wealth of benefits, both Internally & externally!
European Green Clay is helpful when used internally for individuals suffering from:
• Iron deficiency
• Stomach bugs
• Intestinal disorders
• pH imbalance
• Poor bowel health
• Mineral deficiencies
• Heavy metal toxicity
• Irritability/mood swings
• Toxicity due to chemicals or poisons
European Green Clay: Vital Minerals
The mineral content of Green Clay is extraordinary, including but not limited to: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, silicon, selenium, iron, copper, and cobalt. Drinking a clay and water mixture delivers these mineral nutrients to the body, while simultaneously removing dangerous toxins like heavy metals, free radicals, and environmental pollutants. Raymond Dextreit, a French naturopath, claimed that the minerals in Green Clay provide natural power: copper battles infections, selenium boosts liver function, cobalt benefits blood disorders, and all the minerals together work to slow the aging process and balance the body’s natural equilibrium!
Detoxification and Cleansing
The detoxification properties of Green Clay are widely revered by alternative health practitioners and environmental managers. According to a study published in the journal, Clay Minerals, the absorption of different clays was studied, and Green Clay was found to be the most ideal and cost-effective way to clean heavy metals from industrial wastewater! It works the same way when taken internally to clean your digestive system and eliminate toxins! According to detox specialist, Sandy Halliday,Green Clay is beneficial for removing toxins which can build up and cause many physical symptoms such as food allergies, headaches, digestive problems, and general fatigue or lethargy. Green Clayhas a natural negative electrical charge which pulls positively charged toxins from the bloodstream and tissue cells into the intestine and sends them out of the body as waste.
Green Clay and Menstrual Cramps
Menstrual cramps are helped both internally and externally with Green Clay. Women who are suffering can drink the water and clay mixture for the first three weeks of their menstrual cycle. During menstruation, it is recommended to take a break from the clay mixture and instead apply a warmGreen Clay poultice over the lower abdomen. This helps reduce cramping and pain that often accompany menses.
European Green Clay is helpful when used externally for individuals suffering from:
• Unwanted cell growth
• Almost all skin conditions
• Painful, swollen joints
• Poor gum or dental health
• Unsightly scar tissue
• Ulcers or tunneling wounds
• Rashes including poison ivy, oak, and sumac
• Acute injuries such as sprains and strains
• Bug, spider, or snake bites or stings
• Fungal growths
European Green Clay for First Aid:
As a soothing, repairing balm for cuts, scrapes, small wounds, sprains, minor burns, insect bites, and aching muscles, Green Clay can be made into a poultice and applied directly to the affected area. The clay works for cuts, scrapes, and wounds by drawing out the infection. It is said to be comforting for aching muscles and joints, especially when combined with the essential oils of rosemary or lavender. To make a first aid paste, pour 1/4 cup pure water into a glass bowl and sprinkle clay on top until a nice paste consistency is formed. Make sure it is dry enough to hold form but moist enough to not dry out. Apply to the area and cover so that it retains moisture. DO NOT let the clay dry out. After 2-4 hours, remove poultice and gently rinse if not too painful. Wait two hours and then repeat.
When individuals with severe burns had the burned area covered with a poultice of clay, each one noticed immediate relief, with some claiming the pain had subsided completely. In addition, when having the entire body covered in burns, laying in a clay bath provided dramatic results! Burn victims reported a major relief of pain and faster wound repair with less scarring than with conventional methods.
European Green Clay as a Beautifying Agent
The absorbent properties of Green Clay work in beauty treatments by drawing out impurities and toxins from the skin, toning and firming it and stimulating circulation. Estheticians use it to tighten pores, exfoliate dead skin, and reveal a smoother, fresher complexion. It is known to clear problem skin and fix blemishes, usually in the form of a clay mask. If you have a dry or sensitive skin complexion, you should use a clay mask only once a week, as the clay will absorb moisture from the skin along with any impurities.
To make a clay mask at home, put 1 tablespoon of clay in a glass bowl and add pure water a little at a time until a thick paste forms. Be careful not to add too much water or it will be too thin. After the clay and water are mixed well: if your skin is sensitive add 1/2 teaspoon of aloe vera juice, if it is oily add 4 or 5 drops of jojoba oil, or if your skin is dry add 6-8 drops of olive oil and mix well. Using your fingers, gently apply the clay mask to your face or body. For maximum benefits, allow the mask to dry for about 20 minutes or until almost dry. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat the skin dry.

We have used this product for a couple of years and find it works well in many applications. We even use it for a finish rinse of our mouths after using the toothbrush. Another use is putting a couple of tbsp in stored rice to prevent bug infestation. We use it with bay leaves. I also use it for rinsing dried food products (mushrooms) instead of charcoal to avoid the blackening from charcoal. I find this product to be a highly efficient and sophisticated product that should be used by more people. We share ours with daughter and her family to use.

Not sure if this was the intent of my physician but it has certainly helped me sleep better at night. I also seem to be losing weight with it. I've just finished my first 4 week regimen. It mixes easily and the taste is very tolerable. I also mixed a paste for an acne breakout and it helped clear that up quickly.

The taste is not so great but it does seem to work. My skin feels better. I am sleeping better.

I love European Green Clay! It really does work! I feel so good after taking it it. I am on my third week and have not problem taking it. No taste and have mastered taking it in one gulp when I near the bottom of the glass. This should be in everyone's household!

I have used European Green Clay for some time as skin mask. It clean and brightens my skin, reduces the size of my pores, and clears up little blemishes to help me have the "perfect" skin we all desire. I couldn't live without it for that reason alone. Today though, something happened that made me realize how valuable it really is. My 3 year old son saw a wasp on the ground, and being curious, picked it up before i could stop him. Naturally he was stung, and began screaming and crying in pain as a huge red welt started to form. At the advice of a dear friend, who is a holistic doctor, i quickly globbed some clay on the site of the sting. Within seconds, he looked at me and smiled, and told me it was all better. I wrapped the hand with the clay still on, and within a few hours when he took it off, there wasn't even the slightest mark. This product is invaluable, and i will never be without some on hand.
