I have used this amazing clay both internally and externally for 6 years. The latest use was for an abscess on my gum right above a bridge. It was a large abscess totally filled with pus ( not draining) I cut some cotton rounds into 4ths and applied the hydrated clay and placed it on my gum. I changed it every 4 hours. On day two the gum was draining and the swelling is gone! I have started on antibiotics just as a follow-up.
I had suffered with severe heart burn [sp] and acid reflux for many years and was suddenly introduced to Earth’s Living Clay by Chuck and Carol Rock. It was only a short time after taking the clay that I felt some very welcome relief. I now take the clay on a regular basis and are not longer suffering with the heartburn and acid reflux. There are other benefits from taking the clay, one being it is all natural, no drugs and made by God. I highly recommend this clay to anyone.
I have suffered from acid reflux for many years and doctors prescripted drugs have had only limited impact on my health. I have used Earth’s Living Clay only a week or so but I can already feel the difference!
I am working to strengthen my bones and have been reading about the acidifying effects of so many foods. We need to have an 80% alkaline balance to keep our bones healthy. I love that I am easily able to alkalize my body and detoxify with this wonderful clay.
My husband was surprised when he experienced noticeable relief from his arthritis pain after taking the Calcium Bentonite Green Clay for only about a week and a half!
ANIMALS AND DIGESTION ISSUES
My cat has some digestive issues, the evidence of which I find around the house as thrown-up piles of food. Since feeding him a pinch of clay each morning in his wet food, he has stopped vomiting pretty much entirely. Not even fur balls.
I am extremely confident in the effectiveness of the clay, especially after this weekend. I was out of town this past weekend and had friends come feed the little cat for me. To make it easy for them I didn’t tell them about putting the clay in the cat’s food. For the first time in a month or 2 Charlie (my cat) had a couple days without clay, and he also had his first vomiting issue in that time. This says to me that there is a direct correlation between Charlie’s eating clay and his vomiting issue. Eat clay = no upset stomach and no vomit. No clay = vomit.
Wonderful product! Helped my cat a lot with her health! Will buy again!
The other day I was mowing the lawn and disturbed some bees that were in a bush I brushed up against and 2 bees immediately stung me in my forearm (2 stings anyway). I ran into the house and put the clay mask on the area and right away the pain subsided! Left the clay on for an hour or so until it was beyond dry to the point of flaking off. Then as I examined the area and started brushing some of the superficial flaking dried clay off …there- plain as day were the two small stingers. Zero pain through the whole ordeal, except for the 45 seconds or so that it took me to run in and grab for the clay, and absolute efficiency in removing the stingers.
A family member followed a number of prescribed medications and treatments, orally and topically to clear boils that had erupted under the arms, groin area and knee without much success. The boils would not completely heal, resulting in return appointments to the doctor and more medication, and the cycle of pain and frustration continued. Full healing of the boils was experienced with Earth’s Living Internal Use Clay taken orally 1-2x per day and topically applied to the sites. Prevention from any further eruptions with internal use once daily a few times each week. Also, another family member had experienced continual issues with stomach upset without any relief from over-the-counter and prescribed medications, until regular use of the internal use clay. Thank you, thank you…we have much gratitude for Earth’s Living Clay!!
I bought this clay for internal use, but recently burned my hand horribly (and stupidly) on a cast iron pan I’d just pulled out of the oven under the broiler. I ran in under water and it still burned for hours, I tried burn ointment and it didn’t help. Then I remembered the clay, I made a pack (1/2 clay 1/2 water) covered it with plastic wrap and left it on for two hours. It was amazing in that the clay became HOT on the outside. The pain was gone. The next day my hand look like it have been badly burned at least a week or two ago. By the end of the week the burn looked months old (I only used the clay once) and within 2 weeks you’d never knew I burned myself. It is nothing short of a miracle (and I don’t say that lightly)!
Hello dear couple, It took me so long to get back to you. But here is my testimonial: I got severe mouth infection with lesions, swelling and bleeding gums. Despite prescribed antibiotics, my intuition was telling me to use clay, since I remembered from childhood about its drawing power. I researched on Internet and discovered Earth’s Clay, within a few minutes, after taking clay, I experienced soothing and sharp pain got reduced. I continued putting pouches of clay on problem area, on first day swelling got down by 50%, after two days swelling and lesions were gone. When I went to doctor for check up, he mentioned that my intuition was correct and antibiotics would not be as affective in this case.
John also used the clay for a tooth infection he got while camping. He said that he could feel it draining and the pain stopped and he could keep camping out. The dentist said that the tooth was fine and just cleaned it out with some kind of laser. Got to keep the tooth. I think he would have been in for a root canal or worse if it were not for the clay. So thank you!
I just completed a 7 day detox cleanse. I took a minimum of 6 oz of liquified clay per day in addition to fresh fruit juices, veggies and soaked brown rice. My results were amazing! I had more energy, clearer thinking and felt the detox effects more than I have during any previous cleanse! I have used other brands of calcium bentonite clay and found them gritty and definitely unpleasant to take internally. Earth’s Living clay was a super finely ground powder and I found it to be much easier to take because the liquified clay was completely smooth and creamy and not in the slightest unpleasant to drink. You won’t stick to drinking clay and miss out on all the health benefits UNLESS you actually enjoy the clay product you buy. My friend had never used clay before and said it was better than they expected and they felt more of a detox effect than they had ever felt.You will enjoy this clay and at a more reasonable price than many other similar products and with super fast shipping, you can’t go wrong.
I’ve tried to turn to a more natural lifestyle because I don’t like exposing myself to all of the toxins that is in this modern world. I do a lot of research but happened to come across Calcium Bentonite Clay by accident. When I come across a health problem now I turn to the clay first, just to see if it works.
Please be patient with me because instead of just saying that I LOVE THIS, I would like to share some (or maybe all) of my experiences.
When I first read about Calcium Bentonite Clay it sounded too good to be true. I made my first purchase, was excited to try it but was afraid to be disappointed.
I received the clay and started with the baths, the whole family got clay baths. My husband works around a lot of chemicals and we noticed that by the end of his bath the clay was a lot darker than the rest of ours, so we took that as a sign that it was doing something. At that point he had also been exposed to a chemical that caused a lot of brain fog and illness. (After taking it internally and taking clay baths, his brain fog has lifted).
My Mother’s dog was itching badly and seemed depressed. She was itching and sleeping throughout the day and wasn’t her spunky self. After giving her a clay bath she immediately came out wagging her tail and running around, the itching wasn’t as bad either. Not even a month later my Mother said that she is no longer itching.
Mother didn’t want to ingest the clay but I at least got her to try it as a facial mask and she loves it. She said she can feel her skin tightening.
My daughter is a magnet to fire ants. Recently she had a run in with them and I got her to take a clay bath right away, the itching stopped almost immediately.
My husband was working on something (scraping caulk with a box cutter) and by accident stabbed his hand with the box cutter, down to the bone with caulk still on the blade. It looked horrible and he figured that the bleeding flushed out anything that wasn’t supposed to be there. He was wrong, he woke up the next morning with a bad infection (the area was purple and bright red). He decided to apply some clay, left it on for an hour and when rinsing it off he noticed that the purple went away and the red started dulling down. He was amazed and wished that he would have taken some before/after pictures. The wound also healed very quickly.
I’ve used it to brush my teeth and they feel so clean afterwards.
I met somebody who has an ingrown toenail that is infected. Antibiotics were not helping so I suggested the clay. I gave her some premixed clay to try and she said that it seemed to have reduced the redness. Apparently she felt that it was working because I asked her if she would use it again if I gave her more, she said yes. Of course she got more.
I have what I think is pink eye. I’ll spare the details of what the clay has done for me, but I will say that I believe that it is helping. I am using other natural products, but I alternate between the clay and other things because I would like to see how fast I can make it go away without modern medicine or doctors.
My husband’s co-worker’s son washed rushed to the hospital. Upon evaluation they suspected it to be West Nile Virus but would have to wait a few days to get the results. During that time the young boy could hardly move without his vitals spiking. We gave him some clay with instructions and he gave his son a bath. The next day his son’s vitals were back to normal. The West Nile results came back, he didn’t have it. The doctors have no clue what was wrong with him, but he is better now.
I went through my first 8 pounds of clay in one month just because I cannot keep this wonderful product to myself. I actually have people wanting to friend me on facebook just so they can read my updates.
I LOVE IT!!! There, I said it. But I hope that I have left you with so much more than just that.
Here’s a testimonial from my daughter-in-law Laura:
When I was in Chicago in March I gave Laura the clay samples you sent with me for the new baby. I wrote tips on how to use – such as diaper rash, slivers, injuries, facial make, etc. on the top of the jar.
Not two days after I returned home, her two year old son Caden, who doesn’t like anything hanging around in his diaper, suddenly had a sore the size of a dime on his butt when he woke up one morning. When the old reliable [enter name brand diaper cream here] didn’t work at all, Laura remembered the clay I had just brought her.
She says it was like a miracle how quickly the sore healed. They only applied the clay a few times at bedtime. There’s a scar there now as a reminder how clay heals. Just thought you’d like to know.
We ordered a bath bag last time and loved it so much, that’s why I ordered 4 this time.
My son, who gets the worst eczema of us all, always asks for a “clay bath”. I just sprinkle enough to turn the water, and it keeps the bumps away and keeps him from itching (he still gets the edible one in smoothies/brownies). Its been great. Clay puts [enter name brand here] oatmeal baths to shame. I’m so glad you offer the baths at a less expensive price. It has come in so handy with spring allergies.
I emailed you about a week ago with some other questions regarding the use of the products I purchased from you, the bath clay, internal clay and lotion. I am very happy with all of them, so far! It seems immediately (the next day) after ingesting the first ounce of clay, my edema in my ankles was almost completely gone. Could that have been that fast from that little amount of clay?
Once I started taking it I could notice a difference in my energy level, my overall feeling of well-being, and I was also able to identify parasites being expelled from my body. I have since had better mind clarity, and much more energy and ability to function at a rate/pace I haven’t been at in a long time.
I love this stuff. I take baths in it and it instantly destresses me and relieves my aches and pains. I have fibromyalgia, so it is very effective in calming my nerves, relaxing me, and easing some of my muscle pain.
If I could only have one thing in my medicine cabinet (and I have young kids) it would be clay. Even over the standard emergency kit antibiotics. Take care and thank YOU for helping me and the family heal with clay.
I originally purchased Bentonite Clay to detox my system of toxins, poisons, pesticides, insecticides, radiation (from microwave, TV and computer monitor, x-rays, airport body scans), etc. I have been using the clay for about 4 months now and I find that I have a lot more energy. If I was only allowed to have one medicinal item in my medicine chest, it would be Calcium Bentonite Clay. It is good for EVERYTHING!! I discovered a wealth of other uses for Calcium Bentonite Clay. I have had toenail fungus since I was in my 30′s. I am now 73 and have been living with it all these years. I was too embarrassed to wear open toed shoes or sandals. Not anymore!! Not only am I drinking the clay twice daily, but I apply it to my toenails a couple of times during the day and again at night before going to bed. My nails have improved tremendously and already the two little toes are perfectly clear and free of fungus. I figure in about six or seven months they will all be fungus free. Six months is nothing compared to the 40 years I’ve had it. I use it to clean my fruits and vegetables. I add it to baking soda to brush my teeth. I ate something at a restaurant that didn’t agree with me and as soon as I got home I drank 3 ounces and my stomach cleared up immediately (within 2 minutes). I live in a senior community and everyone asks me what I do to keep so healthy, and I tell them Calcium Bentonite Clay. They see the benefits and are asking me to order some for them.
The dark splotches on my skin are completely gone now and new paler skin after a few days of your Muscle Mud application. Has blended 95% with other skin color so I barely notice where it was!
I began using Living Clay in December 2005 and have been amazed at the positive response I received for indigestion and heartburn. I have been using medical prescriptions for acid reflux for at least 10 years, but have not had the immediate relief as I have with Living Clay.
My brother recommended Living Clay but I was skeptical until I actually tried it. And so happy I did!
Using a natural product is a priceless benefit that I consider to be most important reason for using the product. Thank you, Living Clay.
Question: My cat seems to have been bitten and her tail had abscessed and popped open. She was chewing on it and making it much worse. I put a cone on her and had been giving her Infection Fighter (herbal tincture). Can I put bentonite clay on her tail, it has dried out now since I put the cone on her, but I don’t want to give her antibiotics to treat infection.
Answer: Absolutely yes! Try wrapping a piece of damp gauze around it once you get the clay on it.The longer it stays on the better. But it needs to be wet to work.
Email From Customer 8 Days Later: The clay worked! I put one clay pack and the wet gauze you’d suggested, left it on until the next morning. I took clay off and let open wound dry out and it is healing perfectly, it looks so good! I had panicked and called a vet, was thinking I would take her in the morning. I had the epiphany in the middle of the night that I know what to do, I don’t give my kids antibiotics, why my cat!?! Thank you for your assurance, it really helped!
My 6 month old son has had blood in his stool since he was 3 weeks old. Dietary changes helped, but not completely. After seeing specialists, no one has come up with a solution (other than formula feed, which isn’t a route I am willing to take right now). However, since it appears to be a “hole” in the intestinal lining, C.P. said clay would heal it up and help stop the bleeding as well as the food reactions. I had never heard of clay before, but I am willing to try anything at this point.
Follow-up Email After Clay Use:
I started taking 1 oz shots of the clay water every day for myself, and I give 2 small doses to my 6 month old son each day ( in the morning and at night). He has been blood free with normal looking diapers since the day we started it!! This is a huge praise! He’s gone a week without blood before, maybe 3 times in the last 6 months, but 10 days is the longest (and counting)
Thank you so much for your product! We intend to keep using it and hopefully in the near future I can start to move out of my horribly restrictive diet and onto a menu with more variety.
I have been drinking the clay for intestinal problems and have experienced really good results. I am impressed. Also, I have found that I do not have the allergy and sinus problems I usually have this time of year. Praise God for this. I just wanted you to know.
My mom would like to order some clay like I have. I think she wants four pounds as well. By the way, my husband is eating the stuff and is finding that it is helping his irritable bowel situation. Nothing else has helped him.
I am very happy with using the clay as a detox (2 oz. morning and evening) for a month now. I will continue doing this for additional benefits! I’ve noticed particularly that pain in one finger joint is completely gone now!
I have applied 2 poultices on my knee and I have been experiencing almost no pain. We are going to visit friends in California this week and Liz has a bad knee. Guess what I will be taking for her!!! Thanks again
I have used the clay for almost a week now each night under my eyes and around my nose (very large pores) and I can definitely tell the difference! Pores have shrunk at least 50% which thrills me BECAUSE now I don’t feel like I need to wear such a heavy coat of base makeup. I’ve actually been wearing powder only I’ve searched the internet for a few years ALMOST buying promising products to reduce pore size, but the reviews are always iffy.
Thanks for the clay! I have used a lot of over the counter clays and yours doesn’t dry-out or make my skin get peely. It is really nice stuff.
Love using the clay for facial masque. It doesn’t dry my skin out yet cleans out the pores. I had these bumps on my cheeks,old pimples that I wasn’t about to extract, and the clay masque has flattened those bumps by about 75% at least so far. I sometimes used the masque every day and it’s not too strong, nor does it dry my skin out to use that often.
I was diagnosed with a pilonidal cyst about 20-25 years ago. It can be years between flare ups but when they happen – ouch! At diagnosis I was told surgery could cut it out but that would mean six weeks on my stomach in bed and no guarantee it would never recur. I passed on that option.
Shortly after I learned about calcium bentonite clay last year, I had a flare up. I applied a poultice to the wound and covered with a paper towel overnight. My husband said it was about 50% gone the next day. On day two, I repeated the overnight treatment and when I awoke, the inflammation was gone – along with the pain. Wow! I was sold.
This product is our long timme secret for growing healthy bamboo. We sprinkle it dry around the base of our plants three times a year . It’s gradually asorbed by the plants when we water them. They just love it!

Just wanted to THANK YOU for thinking of me with the clay bath and mask. I used the bath last night and it was AWESOME !!! [sp] It took about 90 % of the scales off and stopped the itching immediately. I was ready to scratch my skin off last night at bedtime and so I thought I would give the bath a try, also my joint pain OMG. When I laid down last night I hurt so bad and my joints were so swollen and when I got out of the bath, I had NO PAIN at all, even my bone spurs in my feet didn’t hurt. Last night was the best nights sleep I have had in a long time, so THANK YOU again !!
Bath clay is a great product. I use it for my Psoriasis on my legs. I spread it on and cover it with saran wrap before bedtime. It’s not a cure, but what is. A great help with the cracking, scaling, and itching. You can’t beat the price, especially with the free shipping. As far as the thickness goes, I use a little less than 3 to 1, plus a tablespoon. I like mine a little thicker. You just have to play with it a little to get the right consistency you like.
I have had rash on the top part of my feet for the last five years. I have tried everything including shea butter my friend brought back for me when she was in Africa. To my disappointment nothing helped. I thankfully never gave up because I used the Earth Living clay and within two weeks I had no signs of a rash. When my rash wants to act up I apply a very little of the clay and it is gone within hours.

I am writing this note to say that the clay was like a miracle for me. I have rectum warts that are VERY PAINFUL. I could hardly walk. I was introduced to Nature’s Living Clay and one application and I felt 100% better. I highly recommend this clay to everyone. Thank you Chuck and Carol for saving me from all that pain.
I’ve been taking the clay internally daily. I took the clay bath and wasn’t quite prepared for the intense relaxation afterward, but it was an absolutely fabulous bath!! Both Butch and I have been doing the foot bath too, and I find it such a wonderful experience! I’m beginning to feel the difference in how my feet are feeling at night also, sleep is much sounder! As far as taking the clay internally, I’m feeling much more grounded, and have much less nervous energy, which is what I needed. It almost has me feeling a bit lethargic, but not lazy…I figure my body is getting used to being more grounded and is in the process of cleansing. Anyway, thanks so much for the book, the clay and all the information you shared with me, I’ve used the clay as a mask and loved it! I put it on the spot my arm and it’s almost totally healed. I can see the possibilities are endless! Thanks again and I hope to see you again soon!
I’ve used this clay in baths for detoxing after a far infrared sauna. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to clean up after the bath, and by how well I sleep every time I use it. I loved the experience so much that I ordered the 8 lb bucket of it and have been using it regularly. Customer service is excellent and communications have been very personal.
My husband has had a weird skin condition since the military that comes out every so many years. Every doctor has been stumped and a bit freaked out by it. I gave him some clay to drink and used it on him topically as well. Instead of having to take the strongest antibiotics out there, it was better the next day!
And one other thing! We came down with the flu about 2 weeks ago. Clay helped us recover nicely along with some other natural remedies like oregano and honey. I didn’t have to buy [enter name brand OTC remedies here].
Makes me wish I lived in house hewn from a bentonite clay mountain.
After bathing in my living clay my skin feels silky soft for days!
A year and a half ago I suddenly developed a dreadful skin condition that has been recently biopsied and diagnosed as Pleva…a condition which has no known cause and presents itself as a chicken-pox like rash … Itchy in nature and often blistering. The spots can be small or up to a half an inch in diameter, blister badly and leave brown scars! I suffered my outbreaks mostly on my lower legs but many other places as well.
The most effective treatment is UV treatment but also in some cases liver damaging drugs are prescribed! An anti inflammatory diet is also recommended! I followed all protocols for my condition and was able to in some manner keep things calm but my skin was always in constant eruption. I believed in my heart that this inflammatory condition was a sign that I had an overload of toxins in my body perhaps metal…which lead me to investigate heavy Metal Toxicity. I was fully intending to get tested but stumbled upon a world of information about Clay! I had nothing to lose in trying a regime of Clay and it certainly was hugely less expensive and less stressful than a regime of tests and Chelation therapy so I began with Bentonite hydrated clay every day and then 2 weeks later added Clay Baths to my routine!
For the first time in a year and a half my body is clear of all the Pleva spots! Wow! I am singing from the highest mountain to all who will hear… Clay is a Must-Have for all of us!
We are bombarded with toxins and metals every day and we desperately need to cleanse ourselves of these invaders so we can heal naturally! I am a living example that it is possible to go beyond treating the symptoms and get to the underlying cause!
And…in closing I must say how amazed and perplexed I am how few people know about Healing Clay! I guess I’ll sing louder!
Thank you so much for making the wonderful green clay available! I can’t tell you the number of times I have used it to settle my stomach when nothing else would work. The other day I must have gotten what I think was 3 separate spider bites while I was sleeping. The bites swelled up like crazy, got all nasty & inflamed around and were extremely itchy and hurtful. I mixed some of the clay with water to a paste and applied it to the bites. Almost immediately the itchiness went away and the clay drew out the poison. After on use it felt fine and after two it was just about completely gone. The clay is totally amazing! Hey it works great as a facial and mud bath too! I love the way I feel after the mud bath…relaxed but full of energy. Thanks again for the product and all your good information.
I recently had a staph infection on my instep (not MRSA per MD) which manifested with four red dots in a 1/4″ square. Tried my usual essential oils but did not solve the problem. As it appeared to worsen and to ensure that it was not MRSA I went to walk-in clinic. MD verified that it was not MRSA and prescribed an antibiotic.
While taking the antibiotics the infection did not worsen but it did not go away completely. Concerned because I was due to take a trip I returned to the walk-in clinic. MD advised completing the antibiotic hat I was taking and gave me another prescription to take if it did not resolve. Not happy with the results from the initial antibiotic and not really wanting to take another I asked for inner guidance as to what to do.
Divine guidance suggested that I use clay on it. With applications of a clay/water mixture, it took only a few days for the infected site to heal!! Bless Living Clay!

I have been going to bed with the hydrated clay (thin layer) on this place on the side of my nose where I have discoloration, blotchiness, probably from sun and part age spots of sorts….and have been noticing after a week or so of doing this that now there is a consistent patch that is totally clear though I need to improve my artistry in terms of applying ..in other words increase the area because the perimeter of the clear spot now looks by contrast…blotchy..hard to explain- should see if it comes out in a photo to send you. I am actually happy about that but like I said now I need to do the surrounding area.
