Bentonite powder is very inexpensive-much less so than the liquid. It is convenient for travel, as it takes up very little space, and it is also a great option for those of you who wish to send it overseas to friends and family who cannot purchase bentonite where they live. Finally, it cannot break, as it comes in a plastic bottle (unlike the bottles of liquid that frequently break during shipping.)
There is a product called a “Blender Bottle,” by Sundesa. It can be purchased at www.blenderbottle.com for about $8.50/bottle or through Amazon.com for about $4/bottle. I am told that if you fill the bottle with water (the 20 oz. size) and place the wire ball inside, then add a tablespoon (or more?) of bentonite powder and shake for a minute or less, it blends into a creamy consistency that is very easy to drink.
If you are looking for a less expensive alternative to the bentonite liquid, and/or a way to make bentonite powder easy and agreeable to use, this sounds like a wonderful idea to try!
