Aztec Clay Mask

What is Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay?

  • It’s bentonite clay from Death Valley, California, where it is sun- dried for up to six months in temperatures that sometimes reach 134 degrees.
  • It absorbs impurities such as toxin and heavy metals & is loaded with minerals such as magnesium, calcium, copper, sodium, iron and potassium.
  • In its normal state, it’s a negatively charged molecule but when mixed with liquid it takes on a different charge. This allows it to bind to toxins, chemicals, and heavy metals.

Why use it?

  • Unclogs blocked pores.
  • Removes toxins from the skin.
  • Removes dead skin cells.
  • Treats acne & reduces blemishes.
  • Leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth.


Where to buy it?

  • Can find it in some local stores.
  • Buy it for $4.58 on Vitacost or $8.30 on Amazon.



  • 1 Tablespoon of Aztec Clay.
  • 1 Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar or filtered water.
  •  Measurements do not have to be exact.



  • Mix ingredients in a glass or wooden bowl with a wooden or plastic spoon (I use my fingers). Do not use metal, because bentonite clay absorbs metals and becomes less effective.
  • Stir until it is a smooth paste texture. Add water or more clay as necessary.
  • Apply 1/8 to ¼ inch thick layer of clay to the face.
  • Drying times very. For delicate skin it takes about 5-10 minutes. For normal skin it takes 15-20 mins. I leave mine on for 30 minutes.
  • Remove clay by washing with warm water and a washcloth.



  • Do not use this right before leaving the house.
  • My face is typically reddish for 30-60 minutes after using it.
  • This is a normal reaction, from the blood being pulled to your face. It will go away!
  • Try it out and let me know what you think!
