STILL PAGING ABBILYNN! How much in your baths--cups?

Anyone ever use it on an eczema-like rash? I tried it today--seemed to take out some redness & smooth the skin.

Sorry Yooper, I totally missed this! haha Servantgirl told me I was being paged.

We got our clay from clayforautism.com and it came with a packet of instructions. It lists how much and the amount of time to stay in the bath.

20-25 lbs 1/4 cup-1/3 cup up to 4 min.

26-33 lbs 1/3 cup up to 4 min.

34-39 lbs 1/3 cup up to 5-6 min.

40-45 lbs. 1/3 cup up to 8 min.

46-50 lbs. 1/3 cup up to 9 min.

51-55 lbs. 1/3 cup up to 10 min.

56-60 lbs. 1/2 cup up to 6 min.

61-65 lbs. 1/2 cup up to 7 min.

66-75 lbs. 1/2 cup up to up to 8-9 min.

76-85 min. 3/4 cup up to 7-8 min.

86-100 lbs. 3/4 - 1 cup up to 6 min.

That is what they list. I guess for an adult you would use what they say for 100 lbs. PLUS the extra of whatever else you weigh.

They also say that if the child (or adult I'd assume) has health conditions, to work up to the whole dose slowly. And even once you get up to the whole dose, only do the baths once a week. Follow up with Emergen-C or something else to replace your vitamins and minerals that the clay will pull out. Rinse off after the bath so the clay won't stay on your skin and dry it out. They do not advise using the clay for children under 1. If you prefer not to do the whole bath, you can do foot baths. The recommendation for foot baths is 1/2 - 2 cups of clay for 10-40 minutes, and start slowly.

When I give the boys a bath with the clay, I put really hot water in the blender then add the recommended amount of clay and mix it up smooth. Then I start the bath and let it fill a little bit (make sure the water is very warm but not HOT. Make sure your tube is plugged properly too). Then I pour the clay mixture in the tub and use a whisk to get it all mixed up well. I have the child get in and immerse themselves as much as possible with their head still up out of the water. Then I time them with a clock for the recommended amount of time and get them out, drain the tube and rinse it out well, and have them shower off. Then I give them Emergen-C and their vitamins.

Hope that helps some! I'm not a professional, so this is just my opinion/experience.
