What is Bentonite Clay? How can the combination of CBD and Bentonite Clay help my skin? We are going to answer those questions and more!
Bentonite clay is commonly used for skin conditions, as well as spa and beauty treatments. Bentonite clay was discovered in large amounts in Fort Benton, near Rock River in Wyoming. Bentonite clay is formed after volcanic ash has weathered and aged in the presence of water. Bentonite has a strong negative charge, and when activated by water, it acts like a magnet in and on our bodies, drawing metals, toxins and impurities to it.
Early Native Americans called Bentonite “Ee-Wah-Kee," which means "The Mud That Heals." They saw clay as a tool to reduce infection, pain and use during rituals. Bentonite clay is actually the commercial name for a mineral called montmorillonite. You will also see it referred to as healing clay, living clay, indian healing clay and aztec healing clay. Even before the Aztecs discovered bentonite, the Amargosians recognized its many benefits. Natives of South America and Mexico praised the healing power of the same clay found in our True Natural Wellness Clays.
Dreaming Field Farm currently offers four bentonite clays. Each of our clay products contain bentonite clay and 500mg of Dreaming Field Farm CBD oil.
The addition of CBD oil in the clay not only helps reduce pain and inflammation, but it can also provide many benefits to your skin. CBD oil may help reduce various types of acne thanks to its ability to adjust how the body creates sebum. Sebum is an oily, waxy substance produced by your body's sebaceous glands. Sebum is a great natural barrier for the skin, but when too much is produced it can lead to breakouts. CBD can also improve skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Bentonite clay is an excellent addition to your skin care routine. Its ability to clean deep pores as well as draw out impurities helps to minimize pores and even skin tone.
