Mother Earth’s Blessing Health & Beauty Clay
When many of us were children we ate dirt, made mud pies, and craved clay. Some of us began eating cornstarch, chalk, plaster instinctively seeking to satisfy the craving for clay, which was our DNA activated to urge us to detoxify for the myriad of poisons we were being fed in the hot dogs, hamburgers, breakfast cereals, milk, cheese, eggs, white sugar, sodas, additives, colorings, preservatives, hormones, and god knows what else.
Indigenous and native peoples have always used clays in their daily health and beauty rituals. Clay provides an impressive assortment of minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, manganese, and silica as well as trace elements.
It also has strong magnetic properties that draw toxins out of the skin, and is a powerful agent of stimulation, healing, transmission, and transformation.
