Detox clay foot mask

Ah, there’s nothing like pampering yourself with a nice mask! Oh, you’ve never put a mask on your feet before? Well that’s weird.

Just kidding! I know I’m the weirdo for putting a mask on my feet. But trust me, soon you’ll be doing the same… and your body will be thanking you for it.

The benefits of bentonite clay

Bentonite clay is one of the most powerful healing clays available. Its strong negative charge bonds to the positive charge of toxins and heavy metals. So when it comes in contact with a toxin or heavy metal, the clay will actually absorb it and then release its minerals for the body to use. Pretty amazing, huh?

I always have bentonite clay on hand since I use it in my blackhead busting blackout mask (a real miracle worker!) and my DIY all-natural detoxifying deodorant (it’s the anti-antiperspirant). I also apply a detox clay foot mask about once a month…

Detox clay foot mask

Detoxing your body via the feet is considered to be one of the safest forms of detoxification. To make a detox clay foot mask, simply mix 3 tablespoons of bentonite clay with 3 tablespoons of filtered water. Apply the mask to the bottom of the feet and around the ankles. To assist the detox process, drink lots of filtered water and munch on some foods that naturally detox and cleanse your body while you prop your feet! Let the mask sit for thirty minutes, and then rinse off.

  1. Love using the clay for my face and the glow it gives. My feet could always use some pampering so will give this a try. (Good excuse to put my feet up.) Any links to more about clay and its benefits? Would love to read more about it. Thanks for the tip and enjoy your blog!

    I like to mix it with vinager instead of water. I feel like it mixes smoother. Can I use that with the foot mask or is water better?

    Do you know if it would be safe to do this while pregnant?

    Pregnant and nursing women should never do any sort of detox practice. You can read more here:

  7. Great idea. I’ve used clay for a variety of things and used detox foot pads, foot reflexology and detox foot baths, but somehow never thought about using a clay foot mask….seems like a no-brainer once I heard about it. Thanks for this post. I would like to include it in a post I’m putting together for my Self-help Health blog….would give credit, have link to the site, etc., but it says to check w/ you before copying or distributing, so wanted to check with you.

    Also, for the person (Lori) who was wondering about links to more info on clay, a great resource is….they also have regular webinars you can sign up for and live Q & A sessions.

  9. […] apply a detox clay foot mask. Yes, a mask on my feet. It’s definitely the best reason to sit back and prop your feet up […]
