Hi Mary:

What to look out for is a a deep cold feeling... At first, room temperature clay will always be cool on the skin. It's a deeply cold feeling that you need to watch out for. If this occurs, remove the clay pack, allow the body to recover, and then apply again. Alternatively, use warmed clay packs, or warmed clay compresses.

This "effect" can indicate several possible things. The first thing to avoid is any kind of shock. Shock from a clay application is very, very rare, but even in wound care management, "wound chilling" can occur with cool applications which slows down healing.

Extreme congestion in the area can cause this effect, whether it be poor circulation/cardiovascular function, a lymph issue, etc. Clay can eventually clear this, but over-doing clay in this type of a situation can cause systemic exhaustion, which is quite unecessary if one simply gives the body time to adjust.
