postheadericon Diatomaceous Earth… A Well Kept Secret

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?

I set out to find out more about what actually turned out to be a form of dirt. Now mind you this was before Al Gore invented the internet and way before I had a computer so I really had very little to go on.

I took what information I had to my local Co-Op and they too thought it sounded like  great stuff but they were never able to find the “Food Grade” which was spoke of in the Mother Earth article. I did purchase a bag of what they so graciously stocked for me and it did indeed kill the bugs where I put it but I would NEVER have eaten it. So it really was NOT EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Fast forward to mid-summer 2010 (now). I had ants.. lots of ants. I did an online search to help me get rid of these pesky buggers and I once again discovered Diatomaceous Earth.  But this time it was EXACTLY what I had been looking for many years ago.. “Food Grade”. I ordered a bag.  My dirt was here within a week. I loved the quick service. I bought it from a company called Earth Works Health.

At this time I would like to thanks them for allowing me to use the information that is on their website for this blog. I can post stories that I am sure will be down home and of interest to many, but their information has all of the research ect. The owner Larry told me to use what ever I wanted from his site…

Gosh!! I hope he meant that remark because I sure did a bit of BORROWING!!

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

We will be discussing all of that and MORE….I hope you will enjoy what I have to share with you.

You can eat my dirt!!
