Did you know that clay has many health benefits? Neither did I! But when Redmond Clay offered to send me several products to try out and review I started to research it. This is not the clay that you make pots out of, although you probably could. Instead this is special clay that you would find in a spa. Reading all the literature about the reputed health benefits I really had my doubts, it sounded too good to be true. The more I read the more I wanted to try it. Clay has been used to treat different ailments for thousands of years. Redmond Clay is a completely natural bentonite clay sourced right here in the USA! I really like that because America has the highest standards when it comes to labor and environmental impacts. If your clay is coming from a third world country they often are using child labor in very unsafe conditions.
First I tried the Redmond Clay First Aid Mud. It is officially mosquito season and all my kids get bit. My daughter was really itching bad and I put some on. The relief was instantaneous and the next morning the bites were just little red marks as opposed to huge lumps that she usually gets. Also I ended up having a horrible allergic reaction to some lotion I put on my hands after showering. My hands itched horribly and were covered in hives. I tried cortisone, washing them three times to get the stuff off, but nothing helped. So I slathered the First Aid Mud all over my hands and got immediate relief. I believe it's because the clay drew up the stuff that had absorbed and stopped the reaction! This stuff is great! A must have in your first aid kits.
Then I tried the Redmond Clay Facial Mud. I have very oily skin with major black heads on my nose. I tried it on my nose and boy it really worked! The pores on my nose shrunk very noticeably, and the impurities started coming out. I use it once or twice a week and every time I see a major difference. My skin looks smoother and my pores are not as noticeable.
Next I tried using the Redmond Clay Powder for a few different health problems. First was for my children. My son especially is allergic to mosquito bites. When he gets a bite it swells up to the size of a baseball and is hot and painful. At first I thought it was a horrible infection, but after a trip to the emergency room the doctor patiently explained that many people have the same kind of reaction to mosquito's. These bites would stay swelled, painful, and hot for up to two weeks! When we went up to the mountains my son got several bites so as soon as we got home I re hydrated some clay and put it over the bite and covered it with a band aid. The next morning I lifted the band aid and found just a little mark! No itching, no swelling, nothing! I have since used it many times for insect bites and had the same outcome. That sold me!
Earthpaste Amazingly Natural Toothpaste. Here is the back story. I had been having horrible tooth pain in one of my molars. The pain was getting unbearable and hurt whenever I ate. I read some testimonies from Redmond users that the toothpaste can actually heal tooth cavities. I didn't believe it for a second but figured I had nothing to loose and everything to gain. We don't have dental insurance so the idea of a big fat bill was more than a little depressing. First I must say that this toothpaste takes a little getting used to. It doesn't foam and has a less minty taste. You can also taste a bit of the clay but other than that it's not bad. After using the toothpaste every day for a week my tooth ache was gone. I have been using it ever since and have had no recurrence, no pain! That is pretty amazing. I don't know if it healed it but I think it might have.
I was also sent a bag of the Redmond Bath Salts. These are natural unprocessed bath salts full of minerals from a ancient sea bed right here in the USA. I love soaking in it when I have sore muscles and it has been really helpful for my sons eczema. Also it is very helpful when you are sick or need to relax.
As you can see there are so many uses for these products! I would recommend Redmond Clay to anyone! It is very affordable, Made In The USA, and most important Works!
