It may be that the worlds oldest medicine is earth itself *


Mud is a greasy sort of earth retaining that quality even when wet and impermeable. Mud exhibits certain intriguing properties upon drying, and these properties are known to vary depending on the mineral composition of the mud. These properties are the basis of mud therapy, a healing modality that is underestimated, under-valued, and under-appreciated. Body mud poultices are very useful for treating wounds- to help reduce swelling, relieve inflammation, reduce cysts abscesses, and promote healing with diminished scar formation by interacting with blood clotting mechanisms. From the Aesthehcians point of view, mud is a natural exfoliate and naturally purifies and refines the skin.

Muds promote detoxification, and are good cleansers and toners. Because of their natural high capacity for absorption, they are effective carriers of essential oils.

Mood Muds which are rich in silicates provide the perfect base for facial masks-they stimulate circulation, generating heat upon drying, promote toxin elimination—impurities drawn out of the skin like a magnet, binding to the mud minerals. Muds also ease inflammation help restore skin to its proper equilibrium. Legend has it that Cleopatra aspired to have control of the Dead Sea so she might have easy access to the muds of the region.

“It may be that the world’s oldest medicine is the earth itself” – Timothy Johns Ph.D. 1991

The earth is the source of infinite means for restoring and maintaining good health. In many cultures, it is called MOTHER Earth for the nurturing and nourishment it provides. Ancient civilizations from the Indus Valley to the Egyptian civilization realized the healing power of the earth and submitted to it in more than one way. The Egyptians used it for the mummifications of their dead because they knew its purifying powers. It was not reserved only for the dead; the doctors of antiquity did not hesitate to make use of it. The Greek Dioscorides attributed an extraordinary strength to the vital properties of mud. Mud has been a source of natural therapy for more than 2,500 years. 

Clays, mud, and sands— these different forms of earth all participate in the life giving and health restoring processes. Animals in the wild have often been observed exploiting the curative properties of mud. European naturopaths consider it an indispensable healing material.
