5 Reasons You Should Eat Clay Everyday

clay health benefits

Clay Health Benefits

There are many clay health benefits to be experienced with the use of clay therapy. Try eating or drinking it as well and feel the power of clay internally. Our Australian clays and zeolites are packed with lots of minerals and good stuff and truly are nature’s gifts. Below are just five of the many reasons drinking clay is a good idea.

  1. Energy and Vibrancy

We are exposed to heavy pollutants daily and these can be found in our immediate environment, in the air, we breathe especially in our cities, pesticides, and fertilizers in our food and water supply, and chemicals and preservatives in our health, beauty and wellbeing products to name but just a few.

Zeolite’s unique structure allows it to draw in microbes including harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungus. It helps to absorb these toxins while eliminating them from your body before they enter your bloodstream, thereby reducing toxins to the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system.  The more efficient these organs are, then less energy is required to eliminate excess toxins, resulting in a more energetic and vibrant body.

  1. Mineral supplement

Our soils continue to be depleted of minerals due to chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and over-production.  Therefore our fruit and vegetables do not contain the minerals they used too. Zeolite acts as a mineral supplement with the most active minerals being calcium, magnesium, and silica but there are many more minerals and trace elements too.

  1. Super-antioxidant to maintain Good Health

In cases of organic disorders, its intense activity eliminates and destroys unhealthy cells and activates the rebuilding of healthy ones and acts as a cleansing agent eliminating all noxious substances.  Zeolite is described as a “super-antioxidant and an immunostimulant” by medical researchers in Europe who claim that it eliminates free radicals from our systems and acts as a preventative measure to ensure good health.

  1. Helps maintain blood pH balance

Another benefit to drinking Zeolite is its ability to rebalance the blood’s pH level. The pH level of blood should ideally be between 7.35 and 7.45. Our TL Collection Zeolite has a pH level of 7.4. This is extremely important when you look at the issue of mutating cells and acid level conditions in the body. Maintaining an alkaline system is vital for good health.

  1. Balance our bodies

Zeolite is a natural mineral in its micronized form. During micronization the microcrystalline structure is fragmented under pressure, releasing more “activity” than that exists in the mother stone. Medical scientists found that by utilizing the micronization process, the same action can clean up and balance our bodies.

Experience the power of clay

People have been ingesting – drinking or eating clay – for thousands of years with many beneficial outcomes, however not all clays/zeolites are created equally, and only those suited to eating or drinking should be used. The TL Collection has unearthed a wonderful pure 100% Natural Australian Micronised Clinoptilolite, a super-fine crystalline Zeolite powder suitable for ingesting. Are you ready to start your day utilizing the power of clay?

We have created a range of products using only the best pure, natural Australian clay’s and zeolites sourced locally, those that can safely be used on any part of your body, internally or externally. Give mineral healing clay a try, you will be truly amazed at the results.

  1. Health and Beauty

Clay and clay therapy has been used for centuries for health and beauty due to its extraordinary healing qualities. There are many benefits associated with clay as it contains cleansing and toning properties, as well as being analgesic and antiseptic.  Healing clay removes toxins giving your skin a healthy glow.  Healing clay also stimulates cells and promotes new, healthy tissue growth.

When applied to the skin as a mask, oxidation and circulation are accelerated. Clay, therefore, acts like a light massage. Mineral Healing clay applied as a face mask stimulates circulation, aids toxin elimination, rejuvenates your skin, and cleans pores by drawing out all impurities. Leaves skin silky smooth, squeaky clean and noticeably vibrant. Regular use will help your skin be in the best possible condition it possibly can.

  1. First Aid

You can use it as a spot treatment to treat cuts, scratches, tropical sores, burns, bites, etc.

Clay has many amazing properties and is a wonderful tool for healing. Its powerful drawing capabilities mean it can be applied directly to an open wound to draw out any dirt and infected matter. It is antibacterial and as such toxins are neutralized and adsorbed. Healing clay soothes itchy skin almost immediately, so apply directly to bee, wasp, mosquito, and green ant bites, you will be amazed (and relieved) at the results. Healing clay is antiseptic, destroying harmful bacteria without attacking the surrounding healthy cells. Its regenerative qualities promote regrowth of healthy cells and minimize scarring. It is stimulating, as it brings oxygen-rich blood to the surface of the skin, helping heal injuries quickly. Use healing clay whenever pain or injury strikes, nature has provided us what we need to heal ourselves safely and quickly.

  1. As a mineral boost – You Can Drink It

Ingesting or drinking clay assists in eliminating toxins, and is ideal to cleanse your body internally. It is mineral supplement with the most active minerals being calcium, magnesium, and silica but there are many more minerals and trace elements too.  Healing clay’s unique structure allows it to draw in microbes including harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungus. It helps to absorb these toxins while eliminating them from your body before they enter your bloodstream, thereby reducing toxins to the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system.  Drink healing clay every day to assist in eliminating toxins while keeping your body healthy.

  1. You can feed it to your animals and plants

Animals instinctively use earth to heal themselves. Feed it to your pets in their water bowl, or apply as a poultice to treat wounds and sores. Your animal friends will thank you! Use it to replace your chemical fertilizers for your garden. Soak plant roots in a clay bath when transplanting/replanting plants.

  1. Wash your fruit and vegetables in it

Much has been said and written in the media lately on the importance of soaking and scrubbing your fruit and vegetables before use to eliminate toxic chemical residue. Our fresh foods can also contain pesticide residues and toxic compounds produced by moulds on the surface or even inside tissues of these foods. Healing clay’s powerful drawing action will assist with removing these chemical pesticides and fertilizers.

There are so many uses for mineral healing clay in day-to-day life. Keep some near you at all times, you will be amazed by its versatility and adaptability, and how quickly the power of clay can work for you. Experiment safe in the knowledge that healing clay can only help.  We do hope you will experience the wonderful world of healing clay with us. © Linda Philip.

Honey Clay Mask DIY Nature’s Gifts

Honey Clay Mask

A Natural Honey Clay Mask Do It Yourself Recipe

If you can’t eat it or drink it, don’t put it on your skin

Healing Clay Masks

Nature provides us with so much of what we need to live a healthy and happy life. We are all aware of the healing properties contained in fruit and vegetables, herbs and spices, and pure water that nurtures our bodies, but nature also provides us with all the resources we need to nurture our skin.

There is an old saying that goes along the lines of “if you can’t eat it or drink it, you shouldn’t put it on your skin”. This is where healing clays come in. It takes many thousands of years for clays to form, during this time receiving vital energies from the sun, air, and water. As a result of this lengthy process, healing clays contain many different minerals and trace elements such as magnesium potassium, calcium, manganese, phosphorous, copper, cobalt, zinc and silica, trace elements and rare earth, which all combine to create a powerful healing agent.

It should be noted though that clays do differ, mainly due to variations in mineral composition, and therefore not all clays are created equally. Australia, as one of the oldest lands in the world, provides us with some of the best healing clays and The TL Collection have been lucky enough to unearth some of the most superior clays and zeolites available worldwide.

To help you access one of nature’s most healing gifts we will give you some suggestions on how to tap into this vital resource and how by adding some of nature’s others gifts you can create your own natural healing masks suitable, gentle, and safe for all skin types. The first of these is raw honey.

Raw Honey Clay Mask

Raw Honey has been used for therapeutic purposes for thousands of years and practised by many cultures. Honey was considered sacred due to its wonderfully sweet properties as well as its rarity. It was used in religious ceremonies and to embalm the deceased. Ancient Egyptians used honey to treat wounds, and traditional Ayurvedic medicine used it to treat indigestion and imbalances in the body.

Today, Honey has undergone resurgence mainly due to is naturally anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. Furthermore, Honey is a humectant, meaning it attracts, preserves, and retains moisture. It is these properties, combined with the properties of clay that make it the perfect addition to clay face masks and corroborates our old adage that unless you can eat it or drink it, you shouldn’t put it on your skin.

Honey and clay together make a lovely soothing, rehydrating mask that leaves your skin squeaky clean, fresh and glowing. To make your own Honey and Clay Mask you will need:

A small bowl made from wood, porcelain, glass or pottery
A small wooden spoon or spatula
2 teaspoons of The TL Collection Mud Masks – Combat, Mineral Mask, Crystal Kisses
1 teaspoon raw unfiltered honey

Honey Clay Mask

Directions:

Place The TL Collection mud mask into the bowl. Slowly add the honey and mix with the wooden spoon until a light, smooth and creamy paste is obtained. Firm enough (but not too thick) to be applied to the face with your finger or a small wooden spatula

Let the preparation rest for a few minutes. Add more honey if required.

Apply the clay and honey paste to your face in a thin layer (approximately 5mm)

Leave the mask on for 5-15 minutes (or until the clay has started drying). It won’t dry completely because of the addition of the honey.

Wipe the mask off with the facecloth soaked with lukewarm water

Leaves your skin fresh, hydrated, glowing and rejuvenated!

Nature provides so much of what we need to look after our bodies, internally and externally. I hope you enjoy making your own honey and clay masks and please keep tuned for more hints and ideas on how you can improve your health and wellbeing just by utilizing nature’s gifts. © Linda Philip

Start The Day Drinking Clay

Drinking Clay Zeolite Powder (The TL Collection)

Detoxify everyday drinking clay. Ingesting or drinking clay assists in eliminating toxins, and is ideal to cleanse your body internally, just as your clay mask does for your face externally.

We are exposed to heavy pollutants daily and these can be found in our immediate environment, in the air, we breathe especially in our cities, chemicals residue in our food and water supply, and chemicals and preservatives in our health, beauty and wellbeing products to name but just a few. Our soils continue being depleted of minerals due to chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and over-production.  Drinking clay may assist us in eliminating these toxins while keeping our bodies healthy.

Clay for ingesting or drinking is nothing new, in fact, it has been used for centuries by numerous civilizations and there are many clays, such as Bentonite, that are widely used for this purpose. However, in my experience Zeolite is far superior.

What Is Zeolite?

Zeolite is a natural mineral in its micronized form. During micronization the microcrystalline structure is fragmented under pressure, releasing more “activity” that exists in the mother stone.

Zeolite, formed some 320-340 million years ago during prior geological times, resulting from volcanic explosions blasting into the atmosphere fine ash particles and volcanic glass that settled into lakes, swamps, swimming holes and dams, etc. Over time the volcanic glass changed into the finely detailed structures we know today as Zeolite. There are more than 45 different natural zeolites identified worldwide, each with their own subtle variances in chemical and/or physical properties and CEC capacities. Clinoptilolite is recognized worldwide and the most commercially used of these zeolitic minerals.

A typical analysis is as follows:

Zeolite Composition Typical Analysis (oxide, dry basis)
A group of hydrous alumina-silicates including feldspars and rare earths Silicon 68.26% Magnesium .83%
Aluminium 12.88% Sodium 0.64%
Potassium 4.11% Phosphorus 0.06%
Calcium 2.09% Manganese 0.06%
Iron 1.37%
pH = 7.4           Particle Size = 4 microns           Cation Exchange Capacity = 120 meq/100g

What Is Zeolite Used For?

Zeolite is widely used in animal husbandry and veterinary industries where it is commonly used as an additive to cattle, horse and pig feedlots and stables for its ability to absorb uric acid and ammonia gasses released in the digestion process. Zeolite is also widely used in heavy industry to clean the environment of heavy metals and radioactive waste and also to filter wastewater and sewage.

Medical scientists found that by utilizing the micronization process the same action can clean up and balance our bodies in a number of ways. This action, caused by an exchange of ions, occurs on the outer surface of the particle. Whether it is applied topically or drank as a colloidal solution, a toxic matter is drawn into the structure by the activity on its surface.

What Are The Benefits Of Drinking Zeolite?

Many cultures and civilizations throughout the world have benefited from ingesting clays. In some cultures it is taken as a mineral supplement, in others, pregnant women believe ingesting clay helps their baby grow stronger and healthier. The Egyptians used it for the mummification because of its purifying powers. The Greeks attributed an extraordinary strength to the properties of clay. During WW1 Russian soldiers were given 200g with their rations and French Regiments added it to their mustard to prevent dysentery.

Today, taken orally Zeolite has many benefits. In cases of organic disorders, its intense activity eliminates and destroys unhealthy cells and activates the rebuilding of healthy ones and acts as a cleansing agent eliminating all noxious substances.  Zeolite (drinking clay) is described as a “super-antioxidant and an immunostimulant” by medical researchers in Europe who claim that it eliminates free radicals from our systems and acts as a preventative measure to ensure good health.

It is also a mineral supplement with the most active minerals being calcium, magnesium, and silica but there are many more minerals and trace elements too.  Another benefit of drinking Zeolite is its ability to quickly rebalance the blood’s pH level. The pH level of blood should ideally be between 7.35 and 7.45. Our TL Collection Zeolite typically has a pH level of 7.4. This is extremely important when you look at the issue of mutating cells and acid level conditions in the body.

Zeolite’s unique structure allows it to draw in microbes including harmful bacteria, viruses and fungus. It helps absorb these toxins while eliminating them from your body before they enter your bloodstream, thereby reducing toxins to the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system.  The more efficient these organs are, then less energy is required to eliminate excess toxins, resulting in a more energetic and vibrant body.

Are There Side-Effects To Drinking Clay?

We have researched the health benefits of clay solutions made from similar minerals and have found no adverse reactions in print, in fact, we have found many scientists around the world are now recognizing the health benefits in one way or another. While there is much anecdotal evidence to the benefits of drinking clay, it must be noted that Clays and Zeolites are not regarded as “approved” treatments in Australia and, as such, it cannot be sold as medication.

How to take Zeolite Powder – as a colloidal suspension

  • Add one rounded teaspoon of The TL Collection Zeolite powder to approx 350ml water. Mineral or spring water is best, but tap water will do as the mineral complex purifies water.
  • Let it stand overnight
  • Drink half a glass in the morning and a half glass late afternoon/evening

Please Note :

  • You can drink the sediment. Half fill the glass with water and swirl it around.
  • If you do not wish to drink the sediment, do not waste it! Fill the glass with water and stir and put in your pet’s water bowl. Or pour it on your plants, as it makes the most amazing fertilizer.
  • It is essential to drink plenty of water when drinking Zeolite and Clay to flush out toxins

Cautions:

  • If you have any current health issues, please consult your practitioner before undertaking this treatment, especially if you are taking prescription medication
  • You may experience the normal symptoms of a detoxifying regime. The intensity of these symptoms will depend largely on your general state of health.
  • Toxins may gather in your bowels for evacuation. Drink plenty of water to help keep the bowels functioning and to avoid constipation.

Lava Stone

Basalt, which is also known as Lava Stone or Lava Rock is an igneous volcanic rock, created with intense heat, and solidified from molten lava. Once it has cooled, it becomes porous and its colour ranges from grey to black. It is reputed as being one of the oldest and most frequently found stones in the world, and as such has been used by countless cultures throughout the ages for its healing properties.

Lava Stone And Angel Wings Jewellery

Angels are connected with the spiritual realm, symbolizing freedom, spirituality, comfort and protection. Angels and Angel Wings have been depicted in many and varied art-forms throughout the ages and play a significant role in popular culture throughout the world today. Many of us wear angel wing jewellery as a memorial for a departed loved one or to symbolise that we are connected to, and protected by, Angels as we go about our every-day lives.

Angel Wings Spiritual Meaning and Symbolism

Angels are said to be God’s Warriors in both Eastern and the Western cultures, and as such are fearsome and protective, acting as a link between the spiritual and physical realms. Their role, amongst others, is to heal and guide us while providing love, support, comfort, and protection, especially in times of need.  Wearing Angel Wings as jewellery helps us feel connected to the spirit realm and reminds us that we are being watched over by our angels.

 

Angels are all around us, and if we open our minds and hearts, we can see their signs and tune into their messages. Several examples of this form of communication with the spirit world may be finding a feather on your path, especially a white one, letting you know angels are nearby. Looking into the sky and noticing a perfect formation of an angel, replete with wings also lets you know that angels are watching over you. Finding coins in unusual places is also a sign of guidance and support. Ever noticed a sudden flash of bright light? This can also be another sign from your angels letting you know that you are protected and free.

There are so many other ways our angels can communicate with us, it may also be through music, numbers, or rainbows to name but just a few, all you need to do is ask for a sign and take notice, you won’t be disappointed.

Angel Wing jewellery is very special and symbolizes freedom, spirituality, comfort and protection, and usually has a very personal meaning attached to wearing it. For some, it represents comfort and protection from the symbolism of large, protective wings enveloping us and keeping us safe. For others it may represent a departed loved one, keeping them near to us and strengthening our connection with the spirit realm. Or whether it simply represents freedom, as we spread our wings and soar, one thing for sure is that Angel Wing jewellery always has a very special meaning attached to it for the wearer.
