Bentonite, also referred to as Montmorillonite, is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays. A good quality Bentonite should be a grey/cream color and anything bordering “pure white” is suspect. It has a very fine, velveteen feel and is odorless and non-staining.
Bentonite Clay is sedimentary clay composed of weathered and aged volcanic ash. The largest and most active deposits come from Wyoming and Montana.
Bentonite is usually quarry mined from deposits that can range anywhere from 100 feet to several thousand feet.
This depends on the health and vitality of the land it is processed
from and how far a producer will go to find the right clay with the
proper characteristics and consistency.
