Product Description

Food grade diatomaceous earth is a sedimentary rock which crumbles into a fine, soft, white powder. It is fossilized marine phytoplankton from freshwater lakes. It is a powerful and non-toxic pesticide. When the diatomaceous powder touches bugs, it scrapes the insects waxy outer layer. The insects then lose their capacity to hold moisture, causing it to dry out. Diatomaceous earth benefits are effective in your home, garden, pets, and internally or externally for people.

Suggested use: If you are just beginning your diatomaceous earth journey, start with a teaspoon mixed in liquid, once a day. Slowly increase to twice a day, and then slowly increase the amount taken, up to a heaping tablespoon, and up to three times a day. For every teaspoon taken in liquid, follow by drinking an equal amount of water.

    LifeStyle Markets keep this in stock in both Victoria locations and their helpful staff will happily assist you in locating it on their shelves. I used this as a decontaminant. I absolutely nuked one room with “DIATOMACEOUS EARTH” so much that dust continued to settle over everything some time later. This was good, it had no apparent health disadvantages. While results were satisfactory I had to use “DIATOMACEOUS EARTH” more than once, because – and as the internet indicates – several applications are the prescribed remedy once every two weeks.

    As an aside I make wine, so now I’m curious as to the clarifying properties used in winemaking.
