Air Tight Packaging
A natural characteristic of DE is the ability to absorb odors, smells, and liquids.
We package all our DE in air tight jars with sealed tamper proof liners and FDA approved air tight sealed bags.
Why do you ask?
If the product is in a sewn/stitched paper bag that breaths the DE will absorb things around it. Think about it. Where has the package been before it got to you. In a truck? Exhaust fumes. Stored next to chemicals, near spices, perfume or uncontrolled environment? DE will absorb what out gasses around it. If you consume it, you will taste it. Go Air Tight packaging instead. You will be glad you did.
Under the Microsope
It is important to have a consistent shape diatom. The shape of the diatom must be tubular with holes on the exterior walls. Our raw product is milled to keep the diatoms natural shape. Some manufacture mines use a crushing process that destroys that natural and necessary shape.

All livestock, Horses, Cows, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Rabbits, Chickens and others will benefit from the use of Diatomaceous Earth. It is completely safe and nontoxic. Some of the benefits are: Stimulates basic metabolism, converts feed better, reduces odor and moisture in barns and stalls, results in better coat and hoof condition, keeps fly larvae from developing in manure, noticeably reducing the fly population, reduces annual vet bills, better egg production, stronger eggs, and reduces overall animal stress.
DE is not an earth. It is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one celled plants called Diatoms. Everything it does is either physical action or electrical action.
The Diatom shell is a little cylinder full of holes. The cylinders have a powerful negative charge allowing them to absorb positively charged items, hold them, and take them out of the body. Each shell can hold and neutralize many positive particles. Mixed with feed or eaten the cylinders, by the millions, pass through the stomach and intestines. Diatom's are naturally abrasive in their physical state and work well as an internal cleaner.
Our Diatomaceous Earth is almost pure white and consists of 89% ( and sometimes more) Silicon Dioxide plus 28 trace minerals. Silica is an important component of the human body and helps with ligaments, cartilage, collagen production, digestion as well as promoting healthier hair, skin, nails, joints and bones.
When consuming DE do so on an empty stomach. Allowing 30 minutes to work through your system prior to food consumption. Begin with a teaspoon added to at least 8 ounce of water, juice or milk. Stir or mix and drink immediately.
DE dosage can increase over time to build to 1-2 tablespoons twice a day. Your body will absorb what it needs and pass the rest. More is not better.
Too much DE can cause a detox effect. Build up over a 1-2 week time frame. Too much DE too fast coupled with a dehydrated body can also cause headaches and constipation. Drink plenty of water through out the day. This information is not intended to cure, treat, diagnose, or prevent any type of health condition. As with any product being consumed, consult with your physician prior to use.

a day now and I feel like a million bucks. I have suffered from insomnia all my life, but now
when its time to go to bed I drink a glass of DE juice, and I sleep like a baby, even dreaming
in technicolor. My skin is smoother and more supple, my hair which has always been fairly thin
feels like wire and is growing like crazy! But what this stuff really does spectacularly is to
scrub your system clean, and I think that is the biggest benefit to the noticeable sense of well
being and energy I've had.
BTW, got bleeding gums.... put some of this on your toothpaste and brush away. It has no taste and
its likely you may already be using a product that contains DE, but the toothpaste companies call
it Hydrated Silica, its the same stuff. Have noticed a big difference in my nails too, hard and
shiny, and I never notice my nails. I also have a blood pressure problem and when I get it checked
in two weeks I'll update this info.
Mixes well with all the berry and tomato juices. A word of caution however, when you get started
make sure you begin with no more than a teaspoon and work up over a week to two weeks to a couple
of tablespoons a day in 2/3 servings. If you don't observe this routine, you will no doubt suffer
from what is called a "healing crisis" as I did and you will wish someone would put a bullet in
you. Headaches and a general feeling of discomfort that only time (1/2 day) can cure. DE absorbs
about 3-4x its volume in water so be prepared to drink lots of fluids with this stuff, I don't think
beer counts.Read more ›
So after some anxious waiting for my FREE shipping (which arrived TWO days EARLY - I love you Amazon!) I finally received my package. My bag of DE was in a heavy duty zip lock type bag. My only frustration came from trying to get the darn thing open, which I ended up using scissors for, no biggie. My first action was to powder my carpets and the cat tree. It is as messy as people say. I held my DE in a measuring cup, and used a sifter to try to get an even application on the carpet, which was not that easy. I do recommend getting the tool that they will try to pair your DE with. Just get it! If you are using it for a pesticide, it will make your life so much easier. Anyways I applied it to the carpets, and pushed it in with a broom. I have left it there without vacuuming, today being day two. There is no way at this point to tell if its working on the carpets.
Now to get it onto the animal in your life. I have a finicky cat, so it was a bit tough to get it onto him. I first tried to sprinkle it on top of his fur, which was not easy. Then I had the idea to use a make up brush that I had laying around, like a powder or blush brush. I dipped it in my DE and powdered my boy away. He sat still for me, and actually seemed to enjoy it! I also caught him rolling around on the carpet. As for the fleas on him, I found one today that I was able to nab. I check him at every opportunity.Read more ›
