Escentia Green clay is the South African version of French Green Clay and boasts the same abundance of therapeutic properties, as a natural remedy for acne, psoriasis, eczema, infections, burns, insect bites, cuts and warts. Its famous ability to attract positively charged ions once it is wet means it mops up harmful substances such as toxins, heavy metals, bacteria and viruses, which are usually positively charged. As it mops up toxins, it donates valuable trace minerals too, giving it a duel function that nourishes as it cleanses.

Tips on using Green clay:

Do not use metal with clays as it disrupts the ionic charge of the clay making it less effective. Use a wooden, ceramic or plastic spoon to scoop and mix.

Clay bath:

  • Add half a cup of clay to a warm bath
  • Soak in the bath for about 20 minutes as the clay draws out all those toxins.
  • Rinse away residue from yourself and the bath

Clay face mask:

  • Place small amount of clay in a ceramic or glass bowl and add enough spring or mineral water to cover the clay.
  • Allow to stand for a few minutes and then mix into a smooth paste. Apply a thin layer to your face using a small wooden spatula.
  • Leave for 10-15 minutes and don’t allow clay to dry out too much.
  • Rinse with warm water and apply your favourite natural moisturiser.

Note: This is only recommended for people with oily skin because the clay draws out excess serums and natural oils, which could dry out normal skin. Incredibly beneficial for acne-prone skin.

Detoxifying clay drink:


  • Add half a teaspoon of clay to a big glass of natural mineral or spring water.
  • Cover the glass and leave it to stand overnight.
  • Drink first thing in the morning before you eat breakfast. Continue for a week. Then add 1-2 teaspoons of clay to natural mineral or spring water.
  • Once your body is used to the clay, you can move onto the clay milk.


  • Add 1-2 teaspoons of clay to a big glass of natural mineral or spring water.
  • Cover the glass and leave it to stand overnight.
  • Stir it up again first thing in the morning and drink immediately on an empty stomach
  • Wait for 30 minutes before you eat or drink anything
  • Continue for a maximum of three weeks.


  • Detoxing can cause you to feel dehydrated. Always drink plenty of water when using this product internally or externally.
  • Do not use this clay if you suffer from high blood pressure, kidney failure, intestinal occlusions or chronic constipation.
  • Do not take internally if you are already using the clay in another form on or in your body eg: a poultice
  • If you are taking any other medications, consult a health care professional first.
