Clay is able to store and concentrate energy which can then be released onto the skin. Applied as a poultice, it reduces irritation symptoms thanks to its absorption properties, neutralises toxic substances and acts as a remineraliser and wound healer, also post-operatively. The Green Clay Paste is labelled Vegan OK as, aside from the clay, it contains solely plant-derived ingredients.
Ready to use for poultices and masks both for skin and joint problems as well as cosmetic applications.

How To Use
GEO clay is ready to apply directly to super-clean skin. Apply in even, thin layers until the desired thickness is reached. On skin with abundant hair growth place a fine gauze between the poultice and the skin. It is recommended to keep the treated area as still as possible, and that the poultice be fixed in place with a bandage or with underwear. Place a wool cloth over the poultice by way of insulation. The application can remain in place for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Remove the poultice when it has changed from cold to hot or when it starts to ‘pull’ the skin. Rinse off with water. The areas of the body to which GEO clay can be applied to the following parts of the body: HEAD: it can be applied to the forehead or the nape of the neck, positioning a gauze to avoid the introduction of stray hair, then wrapping a scarf loosely around the head, turban-style. EARS: first block the ear canal with cotton wool before covering the ear, front and back, with an even layer of Geo. EYES: for eye problems it is best to treat the forehead first, and then if this is insufficient a layer of Geo can first be applied to one closed eye and then, once that treatment is complete, to the second. NECK: the whole neck should not be treated at the same time. First treat the throat area, and then the nape. Cover with a gauze and wrap loosely with a silk scarf. CHEST: Geo should be applied sparingly and infrequently to avoid adverse reaction to the cold. BACK: cover the back from the cervical area to the coccyx with a wide, thick layer of Geo. Secure the edges of the poultice in place with bandages or sticking plasters, cover with a woollen cloth. STOMACH: cover the area with a thick layer of Geo. The treatment is best carried out on an empty stomach. LIVER: cover the area from the abdomen round to the back – corresponding to the location of the liver – with a wide, thick layer of Geo. Cover with a woollen scarf. Best carried out on an empty stomach. LOWER ABDOMEN: cover the area downwards from the navel with thin layers of Geo, building up to a thick, wide layer. Very useful to cool and detoxify the intestine. Not to be carried out during the menstrual cycle. KIDNEYS: spread a thick, wide layer of Geo on the back at the level of the kidneys. LIMBS: apply a thick layer of Geo on the front and back of the limb to be treated, securing it in place with a soft bandage. Change frequently. SEXUAL ORGANS: apply a layer of Geo from the pubic area to the coccyx holding it in place using a T-shaped bandage going from the abdomen to the back passing through the legs, securing it with a bandage around the waist. Place a cloth underneath the person to avoid soiling, and keep the poultice in place for 30 minutes before rinsing off. SWABS: for localised skin problems – prepare an egg-sized ball of Geo, wrap it in gauze and apply it to the affected area for two hours. ZONES AFFECTED BY CELLULITE: spread a thick layer of Geo on the zone to be treated, wrap with cling film and cover with a hot cloth for 30 minutes.
Clay therapy is a natural treatment that is risk- and side-effect-free. It works slowly,and is aimed primarily at maximising health. It strengthens the body's own natural defences and helps to restore balance. Can be applied to the whole body and, thanks to its ionic exchange capacity, it remineralises, drains, purifies and revitalises. Animals, too, benefit from the use of GEO clay treatments.
