Applications for Thick Zeolite Mud - Bites, Stings, Burns and more!

Thick Zeolite Mud

Put zeolite powder into a small bowl or cup, add water, stir well until smooth. Keep in a tightly sealed jar with a thin layer of water over the top to stop it from drying out, or use immediately. This mud is excellent to take on camping or fishing trips, especially in the tropics.

Applications for Thick Zeolite Mud

Zeolite mud helps to ease the pain of severe bites like wasps and bull ants quickly and also takes the itch out of mosquito and sandfly bites. Most insect bites should be helped by zeolite. Luckily we haven’t been able to test zeolite yet on bee stings, spider bites and snake bites. In theory zeolite should work on some types of bites, as in Russia zeolite has been used for many years to draw out poisons.

Leave the zeolite mud on the bite as long as possible, even after it has dried out. Covering the mud on an insect bite with a bandaid will help to keep the mud moist longer and stop it from falling off when it is dry.

Even if the mud is left uncovered and most of it falls off, you will see that a powder residue is left behind, especially on top of the bite. When this happens reapply more mud on top of the dried powder.

Ant Bites

Apply a thick dob of zeolite mud to the bite and surrounding area. When the mud dries, remove the thick dob before reapplying. The intense pain will start to go very soon. I can verify this from personal experience as I have been bitten myself several times and have also treated bites on others. While writing this book I was bitten by a green ant and once again the pain went very quickly after applying zeolite mud.

Blue Bottle Stings

We only know of one occasion when zeolite was tried on a blue bottle sting. Even though the mud was applied an hour or more after the sting occurred the pain disappeared quickly. The person suffering from the sting was an overseas tourist who just happened to meet us by accident and was very happy she did.

Mosquito and Sandfly Bites

In tropical areas every insect bite has the potential to become a tropical ulcer. If you live in these areas, dab thick zeolite mud onto the bites and the surrounding areas straight away or as soon as possible to stop the itch and prevent infection. When the dried mud falls off, reapply fresh zeolite mud and keep doing so until the bite mark has disappeared. Don’t ever scratch the bite.

Tick Bites

Tick bites are less painful if thick zeolite mud is applied as soon as the tick has been removed. Zeolite also helps to prevent the bite from becoming infected. Reapply the mud until the pain goes and the poison is drawn out. Some ticks carry the bacteria which can cause Lyme’s disease so it is important to treat their bites as soon as possible.

If you have been bitten by a tick, drink a strong glass of zeolite water straight away and continue drinking zeolite water every day for at least a week. We have had reports from people suffering from Lyme’s disease who say that they feel much better now that they are drinking zeolite water.

Wasp Stings

Apply fairly thick zeolite mud to single wasp stings. If you’ve been attacked by a swarm of wasps, cover the whole area liberally with thin zeolite mud.

Bumps and Sprains

I’ve found many times that applying thick zeolite mud to an injury helps to ease the pain and swelling and prevent bruising. Apply liberally to the injury and when the mud dries, rinse it off and repeat if necessary. If the injury is swollen, say for example a sprained ankle or knee, cover the mud with a bandage to keep it moist longer. If pain persists and swelling is not reduced, see your doctor in case you have a broken bone.

Over the last few months I’ve kicked my toes twice and have applied thick zeolite mud as soon as possible to reduce injury time. I know from past experience that if zeolite isn’t applied to an injury like this straight away, the damage will be worse and I will hobble around for a lot longer. Luckily for me I applied the mud in time to avoid bruising and the pain eased fairly quickly.

Cat Scratches

Applying thin or thick zeolite mud helps to calm the welts caused by cat scratches and also helps to prevent infection. When the mud dries, apply another layer on top and reapply again when necessary.

If the scratch is bleeding, use zeolite powder instead. Sprinkle the powder over the would and press down. It’s amazing how well it works.

We can thank a cat scratch for introducing us to the calming and healing properties of minerals. I’m allergic to cats but love them. When our old cat, Pip, was a kitten he scratched me and as usual the scratch turned into a large itchy welt. On that day we were visited by friends who happened to have some therapeutic clay with them. I couldn’t believe how quickly the welt calmed down and then disappeared after a few applications of clay. Over the years I’ve found that zeolite works even better than any clay for all first aid treatments.

When we discovered that French clays were the only ones available in Australia, we were determined to launch therapeutic Australian clays onto the spa market, which we did in 1998. Soon afterwards we found zeolite and that has been our consuming passion ever since, as it is so much more powerful than any therapeutic clay and has many more uses.

Pip always had zeolite water available to drink and occasionally we added half a teaspoon of zeolite powder to his wet food. Pip lived a long, healthy and happy life, only needing to go to the vet once for a tick bite and then to have some teeth removed when he was very old.

Minor Burns

I’ve had many kitchen burns over the years and have found that the burns treated with zeolite mud were a lot less painful than untreated burns and they did not leave a mark on my skin. The sooner the mud is applied the better. Zeolite lotion also soothes minor burns but may have to be reapplied more often.


Rinse your mouth with zeolite water at the first sign of a toothache, repeat frequently. For severe pain, cover the affected tooth with a large dob of thick zeolite mud until you can visit the dentist. You will have to reapply the mud a few times and it may not remove the pain completely but it does help.
