Les bienfaits des argiles pour notre corps

The benefits of clays for our body

Natural, purifying, calming and cleansing, clays are a product with multiple benefits, recognized for millennia for their actions on our body! We tell you everything about this naturally rich land.

What are the benefits of clay?

The active ingredients of clay allow it to have effective antiseptic and purifying benefits to calm irritations and itching as well as to promote healing of the skin and mucous membranes. Clay also has therapeutic anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce muscle and joint pain.

In Ancient Egypt, clay was already used to treat wounds. From now on, we recognize many other virtues in this land! Here are the main ones:

It helps to disinfect and soothe wounds : in case of injuries such as cuts or burns. The application of clay helps prevent infection and contributes to the natural reconstitution of skin cells. This is possible thanks to its very high content of mineral salts and silica.

It is a faithful ally for treating problem skin : clay helps the skin to get rid of toxins and renew cells. It is therefore a great ally in regaining beautiful, smooth and clear skin.

Benefits on joint pain : clay is often used in spa treatment programs intended to cure joint pain. Indeed, it has relaxing and analgesic properties, which help to get rid of joint and muscle pain such as back pain or other...

Helps calm inflammation : applied locally in the form of a poultice, clay can help calm inflammation. Sprain, hematoma, bump or even tendinitis, it will provide almost immediate relief! It also helps relieve and treat certain internal problems.

Good to know
Clay is a natural product very well tolerated by the body, whatever its method of use. However, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking medication, or if you have blood pressure problems or bowel disease, always seek the advice of a doctor before using it. To prepare your clay mixtures, favor the use of “natural” utensils: wooden spoon, glass jar, etc. Avoid metal and plastic, which risk denaturing the product and altering its effectiveness.

You now know that clay is not just another remedy, it is a way of life to avoid remedies !
