Bentonite clay is known to remove toxins, and is also advised for treating spider bites. For best results, mix echinacea powder with the bentonite clay and water. Apply this paste to the wound. You may simply open echinacea supplement capsules to obtain the powder. As with the activated charcoal and the echinacea, have the bentonite clay ready beforehand. Bentonite clay is not found in most retailers, and it must usually be purchased online, so get it now.
Bentonite clay and activated charcoal are two emergency supplies that every prepper absolutely has to stock up on. Along with echinacea, they will treat nearly every toxin that enters the body, and when used effectively, they can prevent a lot of deaths.
