I feel a little like the dad from My Big Fat Greek Wedding who used Windex for everything, but I LOVE First Aid clay by Redmond. Now I reach for it first. For example, my Arabian gets awful, raw rub spots from laying down on the front of his fetlock if I don’t get his upside down over reach boots on early enough in the spring. This year I couldn’t get his sores to heal. Finally, I decided to try First Aid clay on a square of Derma Cloth, wrapped it with Vet Wrap, left it for 4 days, and when I took the band aids off, the sores were healed.
Another time, I was out weeding and I pulled a lot of Milk Weed. My arms started burning unbearably. I ran in the house, washed them and as I glanced down, some First Aid was sitting right there on the counter, so out of desperation I put some on, and my arms instantly stopped burning.
Adjoining my property is 10 acres where the elderly lady who owns the property, lets sheep and 2 cows graze on her pasture. One morning when I was feeding my herd, I noticed one of the little calves had a really long, deep gash that cut all the way through the skin. It looked awful. I immediately knocked on her door and let her know, but she is elderly and it must have been overwhelming for her, because the next morning I noticed nothing had been done. I watched for a few days, and when I still saw no treatments, I went to my first aid kit and looked at my products. I grabbed my First Aid and (yes, I was feeding them) when they came to me, I put a bunch of clay on the calf’s gash. Now I do it every morning. He must associate it with pain relief, because, when I reach over to put the clay on, he leans his side towards me.
I had a really bad mosquito bite when I came in from watering the plants last night, and, yes, I reached for the First Aid. I hate sounding like an advertisement, but I really am hooked on this stuff.
