"The most basic understanding I have of Living Clay and how Living Clay works, corresponds to how our body is made up of positive and negative ions. The more negative ions we have the better we feel. In my opinion over 12 years of researching pH Balance, it’s clear to me our goal is to continually infuse ourselves with negative ions. The healthy negative ions are foundational to our performance, our response to stress, our clarity, and our physical (internal and external), and mental well being. Following is a sincere compilation of some of the ways my family and I incorporate Living Clay into our daily life, enjoy!" Maraline
LIVING CLAY with all of its' credentials, is stand alone in a sea of choices, meaning all the bases are covered for quality & effectiveness! Not ony is Living Clay natural in every respect, but Living Clay provides information sheets on the product: Chemical Analysis of Living Clay, Quality Control Report (every batch, usually every 90 days), and a Material Safety Data Sheet for your review.
Living Clay natural properties not only include a strong negative ionic charge, but the purity and the micro-fine properties of Living Clay speak to integrity and offer the security of being a results driven product.
Negative/Positive Ions: Just like a magnet, negative attracts positive, or in this case, good attracts bad. Depending on the situation there are examples, but we must each experiment with quantity and process, because just as in any natural product, it always begins with how balanced we are, and works forward to helping us achieve results and a better balance.
Our body: We are comprised of water, salt and clay, meaning our body is 70% water (similar to ocean water, and dirt or clay (meaning the minerals of the earth), just as the earth is comprised of 70% water, 30% mass. When the water is clean, the mass is healthy. Combine that with the fact we are alkaline by design and acidic by function (physical, mental, digestive), PLUS the fact our food, water, and air, has become very degraded, it’s no wonder most of us are out of balance, or worse, have symptoms, chronic symptoms, a diagnosis, or a dis-ease.
Process: When Living Clay (negatively charged) attracts (adsorbs) bad micro organisms like yeast or candida, bacteria, acidity in general, and alike, (positively charged), not only does the clay capture (absorb), but because it’s so porous, it literally acts like a sponge and holds the bad guys through elimination. Living Clay is by choice because its surface coverage is so much greater due to the fineness of the clay powder.
Basic foundation to good health: Hydration with pure water, Nutrition we can absorb, Unbleached sea salt to maintain our salt to water ratio, and for our family, LIVING CLAY to provide trace minerals and passively cleanse us of environmental toxins each and every day.
Following is but a sampling of how we utilize LIVING CLAY at my home and through pHBodyBalance.com! As you begin to use this product, you too will have stories and recipes to share, believe it!

This information should not be used to treat a serious ailment without prior consultation with a qualified health-care professional.
Wet to Dry, and Dry to Wet
a. Suggestion for paste is 2-3 parts whole leaf aloe vera or 2-3 parts water and one part dry clay.
b. Apply gel/paste directly to skin for drawing effect, as in the case of bee sting, mosquito bit, flea bites, spider bite, stinging nettle, etc. If it is not covered it will dry out, as it dries it will draw and pull. Either way itching is relieved because a light film of clay is alkaline, and of course, bites, rashes from the likes of poison ivy, or bacteria, etc., are acidic, so when you apply the paste it alkalizes the skin and stops the itching (as it draws out the poisons).
c. If you want a tightening effect, as in the case of a facial for acne, pimples, minor cuts, leave it on until it almost, but not totally dry, then remove. Or you can spot for overnight.
d. If you want a more cooling soothing effect, such as for burns, scrapes, bruises, aches, pains, cover with a plastic covering or wet cloth so it doesn’t dry out. If you are not sure, alternate between both.
e. Soak a couple of tablespoons of clay in a cup of water or a cup of green drink, drain off water and use hydrated clay as a pack for skin (you can do the same thing with healing herbs in water with the clay) Put the clay mixture on gauze and apply to skin, covered or uncovered as desired.
f. Making a paste and covering with saran wrap (keeping clay wet) will allow clay to draw inflammation and/or toxins longer, so in the case of injury or pain, this process has been successful for us, i.e., sprains, strains, muscle or ligament issues, bone spurs, foot or body part rashes, and the list goes on.
i. Feet – We apply the paste and place foot in a plastic bag (like a white kitchen trash bag), using scotch tape around the bag, above the ankle, leaving it loose, and cutting off the rest of the bag, will allow you sleep with wet clay paste and or possibly put your shoe on over the bag.
ii. Neck – We apply the paste around the neck (either while in bath or laying on stomach), then wet a hand towel in hot water, wring it out and lay it over the clay – we repeat the towel process until the orginal clay paste is gone. This also seems to help with headaches.
iii. Back– Both ways, see feet and neck, and while we don’t use a trash bag, we do use saran wrap, with a hot/warm wrung out towel over top – at least 30 minutes.
g. Smaller skin issues: Covering a skin issue with clay, then the same size of saran wrap, then a square bandaid type adhesive will keep clay moist. Just putting a bandaid over it will not keep it moist because most bandaid’s have aeriation which will dry the clay.
h. Dental/Mouth: We have improved our dental appointments and I believe our health, by rubbing a bit of the paste on our gums at night (after brushing), two things have occurred: our gums have become healthier, and the dentist doesn’t call out numbers when he measures our gums, AND overnight the dripping of clay down the throat has acted as a passive cleanse.
i. We have also placed paste in a tea bag and applied directly to dental issue . The tea bag will hold the clay throughout the day. Remember negative attracts positive, or bad micro organisms!
2. Facial Mask: We love making the facial mask for tightening as well as acne issues. Mix with water or whole leaf aloe vera, as directed above: Thin the paste with a little water, so it’s the consistency of mustard)
a. Make enough to apply as a facial (using a teaspoon and the palm of your hand), allow to dry out on face/neck before washing
i. Treating individual blemishes, see facial instructions below, plus a tiny amount on each blemish can be left overnight.
ii. It’s a great facial every morning before you shower, just apply a thin layer and let dry (takes 5 minutes), then shower. For acne, we have applied am and pm on either face or back, spotting blemishes with clay overnight.
iii. As a body exfoliation: Apply light paste to body, allow to dry, then (optimally) brush off in shower with body brush before showering.
b. Back mask – same as above!
a. As a fine talcum for diapering powder, especially when rash is present
b. Shoes: Mixed 2:1 with baking soda, makes for a great everyday shake for work boots or athletic shoes. (See paste and foot soaks for athlete’s foot)
c. Toothpaste – dry brush w/dry clay works great, reserving the amount of clay needed and using a wet brush does just as well.
a. We have found this to be a quick fix for acid reflux, nausea, indigestion, and more.
b. Liquid is an easy way to drink clay without having to mix it.
c. Yeast, candida, have positive properties, so naturally if they are in the tummy, they’ll be immediately attracted to the clay.
a. Added to your green drink or other drinks
b. Sprinkled on food for humans or pets
c. Brush teeth or use prior to or after toothpaste of choice
d. Added to bath water (soak 30 minutes)*
e. Added to foot bath (soak)*
f. Make clay capsules and take periodically
g. Passive Cleansing
i. 2 tsp dry clay in 12-16 oz water, mix and let sit overnight
ii. During day, next day, drink an oz or more periodically, reserving 4 oz for right before going to sleep.
iii. OR Quick & Easy, mix 1 tsp in 2-3 oz of water, drink a few times a day
a. Body: Stay in at least 20- 30 minutes to maximize value of soak, hot hot is not always better, we prefer comfortable.
i. Detoxing Soak: Depending on size of bathtub, we use approximately 2 cups of clay for medium to large bathtub.You can pre-blend 2 cups of clay with 6 cups of water - if you do this, put 3 cups of water in your blender with 2 cups of clay, blend and add remaining water. Also see mixing instructions by Perry A.
ii. Maintenance or Light Detox Soak: Same as detox soak, except less clay. We use 1/2 - 1 cup of clay. Most often when you drain the tub (if you have clean house water) the clay will remain at the bottom of tub to be used again, just having to add a bit of clay each time.
With Epsom Salt: We use a 2 parts Epsom salt (or magnesium salt) to 1 part clay for body fatigue or pain.
b. Foot soak: Remain at least 20-30 minutes, even longer if you have pain, and we use an 8:1 ratio of pure water to clay. We suggest you see clay paste instructions above, applied externally, if you would like to concentrate on a specific area overnight, we've been successful with heel spurs, toe issues, etc., using this protocol.
a. Add a little to a teaspoonful to each green drink
b. Add dry and mix with wet foods, make sure food is cool or table temperature, do not add if you are cooking on a hot stove.
c. Add a little Living Clay to salad dressing made with fresh lemon / cold pressed oils and seasonings (will act also act as a thickener or emulsifier/thickner, which will hold your salad dressing longer). I use about a 1/2 tsp to 8 oz, and puree.
