    Default Betonite Clay

    Friend sent me a link on Betonite Clay - some interesting reads.... didn't realize could be used externally AND ingested...??

    My Mother is having some side effects to some strong meds along with psoriasis type breakouts....friend suggested clay packs/masks on the effected areas?

    Anyone used this stuff?

    People here in the south have used it for years. I know people used to whitewash their fireplaces with it, and medicinal purposes also. My great Grandfather used it from time to time but not sure what the application was. He was 82 when he passed and it wasn't from this stuff.

    I have used it.......while drilling water wells and lining ponds so they won't leak. This clay expands way up when it gets wet.

    I have no idea what health things it could be used for?

    Mmmk..... So - a person has to wonder - if it expands/and plugs leaks....and one consumes....... Just sayin! More research for sure if consumption is the intent!

    I did see some good things regarding putting on skin issues.... not sure if hokey, have yet to connect with anyone who has used for skin packs.
