In brief: Detoxification.
If you made yourself a mud bath using mud you found outdoors it could be filled with germs.
Clay and mud baths are given at many spas for detoxification. My concern is that if it is done for too lengthy a period that detoxification could be too aggressive and the person could become dehydrated.
