Would You Rather Eat Dirt?


Calcium Bentonite Clay A Natural Skin Exfoliator and Liver Detox!

Did you know thousands years ago it was a tradition for human to eat dirt?

Think about it, back then the soils weren't depleted and the environment was not loaded with toxins.

Also, according to legend, dirt was sacred then, and it still is in some cultures.

Bentonite Clays have been used for centuries to beautify and refresh the skin, to assist in mineral deficiencies and to remove toxins from the body.

You are probably asking, why in the world would anyone eat dirt?

This simple natural approach can help eliminate internal toxins even if you apply the therapy topically.

As a facial mask, calcium bentonite clay will remove dead cells from the top layer of your skin and cleanse the facial deep pores.

Recent studies show that the average American consumes about 152 pounds of sugar in one year, which equal to 6 cups of sugar ingested weekly.

Science suggest that people should not consume more than 6 teaspoons or 25 grams for women daily and 9 teaspoons or 38 grams for men.

Needles to say, the Average American consumes 19.5 teaspoons or 82 grams every day, hence clay can benefit to remove the overwhelmed sugar toxicity from the internal organs.

But the common occasion for eating dirt in many societies (the only occasion in some societies) is pregnancy.

Because soils, including clays, contains considerable amounts of organic material, including many live microorganisms for gut health.

Clay can be a really great treat especially if applied topically in the liver area to eliminate internal toxins.

1. Combine the ingredients in this order in a CERAMIC BOWL, bentonite clay, room temperature water, pure honey, fresh lemon juice, and organic apple cider.

2. Continue adding clay and water until a paste consistency.

3. Prep your skin by keeping your skin damp with water so that the clay can penetrate pores before it dries up.

4. Apply the clay mixture to your face, liver area, 1⁄4 inch thick. For extra-clogged areas like your nose, chin, or forehead, add an extra layer of clay.

5. You can leave the mask on for anywhere from 5-25 minutes, depending on how sensitive your skin is. I recommend less time for beginners and more time for acne-prone skin.

6. Either way, lay down and relax while the mask works its magic. It’s okay to leave the mask on for more than 10 minutes even if it starts to dry out or flake.

7. Remove the mask, wash your face with warm water and a washcloth
