  • Daddy, Why do you have to shoot Bambi?
    I am one of those crazy critter people.. I always have been. When I was a little girl my father would go out hunting for deer to fill the freezer. Where I lived people waited all year for it to be deer season. During this season you would see dead deer being hauled around on […]

postheadericon About Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth is an all natural product that is good for people and pets, the farm and the gardens, and anything in between. Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a natural mineral, it is a safe alternative FOOD GRADE insecticide. Your able to kill ants with it and then eat it for your good health.
I am so pleased to be able to share with you information about this wonderful all natural product called Diatomaceous Earth. Many years ago I picked up a Mother Earth magazine and read a very interesting article about this stuff called DE for short. The article told about all of the benefits but the part that I was most fascinated with was the fact that you could eat it but it also killed bugs…How could that be?
Since doing my own research on DE I have found that it is good for a whole bunch of other things as well. Just to name a few…. I am certain that the pesticide companies and the makers of flea products for your pets as well as the people who make colon cleansers would not be happy if the benefits of this all natural product leaked out.

Are you looking to:
Kill insects and bugs naturally
Get rid of bedbugs naturally
Have a better looking garden naturally

  • Hava:

    Hello, I am so excited to get this…I have ordered it and the product will be arriving tomorrow. I have done a 30 parasite cleanse and have chased something up to my ear causing a lot of pain. I have sent a specimen off to the lab to have it identified but as of right now I do not know what this thing is. It causes my ear to hurt, swell and at night leak out stuff. Around 2-3 am i can feel it moving around too. The only thing that gets it out is hydrogen peroxide. I have used collidal silver, alcohol, black walnut tincture, essential oils, ear candles…I even went to a doctor who says my “eardrum” is fine. Well the problem is not my eardrum it is my ear canal swelling to the point of being shut and the major amount of pain….
    So I ordered DE and I am hoping this will be the answer to my prayers.
    How do you eat it? I was thinking about putting in my morning smoothie. Does it have a taste to it that I will have to hide? Should I put it in Applesauce? How do you get it down is my basic question? LOL..can’t very excited to have this thing out of my ear.

    • Cindy:

      Your morning smoothie sounds like a great idea, apple sauce would be another way. There is no taste to it. It has the consistence of flour. You can mix it is a glass of orange juice or anything like that. My Aunt sprinkles it on her cereal… though that to me does not sound good. I mix it with yogurt or whip it into my protein shake, which sounds like your smoothie.

      It all depends on how well your able to mix it, some people do not like the texture of it. You will find the best way for you.

      Best of luck and..please keep us posted.

  • Michelle:

    How much is the maxium per day to eat? I got some, just had 1/2 a small spoon in some cottage cheese and fruit. Looked nasty but tasted ok.

    • Cindy:

      Michelle, You did it correctly by starting out with just a small amount. Most people work their way up to 1 Tablespoon a day. That is what I take. Everyone is different.. but I am finding that to be the usual amount.

  • sparkell:

    I crave to eat dirt does this taste anything like real dirt?

    • Cindy:

      I have never eaten REAL dirt so I don’t know how to answer that question.. but my guess would be NO!
      Diatomaceous Earth has no taste. You may want to try it to see if the trace minerals that it contains will satisfy your craving that you have for REAL dirt. Good Luck and please let us know if you eat the Good Dirt!

  • becky:

    I have tried de to get rid of bed bugs. It worked great. It got rid of bed bugs, spides, Gnats, we shook it around everything. Left it 4 2 days, vaccummed and shook a bit more around bed posts. Base boards. Crawl space. Etc. We were bug free 4 nearly a year. It works great. I always tell everybody. Im not sure thex believe me. Oh well, their loss. Its inexspensive too. Its good in the garden too. Im going to use on my dog tomorrow. He just got neutered, i just noticed fleas. Sincd he cant have bath yet, its the best thing to do anyway. 4 his safety. Try it’ its great stuff!

    • Cindy:

      I am so glad to hear about your experience with diatomaceous earth. I know I get the same reaction when I talk about this wonderful stuff. Thanks so much for your input. Cindy

  • I craved dirt for years. I replaced it with this product and I love it and eat it daily right from the spoon. There is no grit, but it did take my dirt craving away.

    • Cindy:

      I have heard of people eating dirt… real dirt. I am glad that this has replaced that craving for you. I am certain it is better for you.

  • Linda:

    I’d like to know if DE is good for brittle or Type 1 diabetes. Thanks. :)

    • Cindy:

      Hi Linda….. I have heard many wonderful things from people who use DE. Please keep in mind that everyone is different. I can feel safe in saying that no 2 people will experience the exact same results if they take it. To address your question all I can say is … it will not hurt to try it.

      In my opinion.. it is the very best colon cleanser available. If you have a clean colon and your body is able to absorb what you take in.. it just makes sense to me that your entire body will feel better…. as well as work better.

  • Ana Miller:

    I would like to know if drinking Diatomaceous Earth will kill the stomach’s bacteria
    H. Pylori and will shrink the uterus’ fibroids?
    I am so glad I found this website and I’ll really appreciate if someone
    could answer my question.
    Thank you!
