Internal Detoxification - Diatomaceous Earth can be safely ingested in small amounts as a natural detoxifying agent to help the elimination of parasites and accumulated heavy metals in the gut. Additionally, the mineral rich content may help to support increased immunity, energy and blood purification.
Mix 1 teaspoon of Diatomaceous Earth into a glass of water, stir vigorously and drink on an empty stomach, preferably, first thing in the morning, or at least one hour before eating.
Drink an additional glass of water immediately after you've consumed the mix and continue to stay hydrated throughout the day.
Note: The powder will not dissolve in the water but it will distribute evenly so that you will be able to rapidly drink the liquid. Since it won't dissolve, drink as soon as you've finished stirring to minimise the amount of powder settling to the bottom of the glass. It's normal to see a small amount of gritty residue left behind once consumed.
Diatomaceous Earth Follow this protocol off and on for a few weeks at a time to maximise the ongoing detoxification benefits.
Skin Care - By penetrating the pores, the silica effectively sweeps the dirt residue and dead skin cells, allowing your skin to detoxify and breathe better.
The mild abrasive quality of Diatomaceous Earth makes it an excellent scrub and exfoliate for the skin. Despite this slight abrasive feature, the silica particles are small enough that they do not tend to cause irritation or trigger allergies on the skin.
Face Mask - Mix a small amount of DE with distilled water into a paste and smooth over face. Leave for 10 - 12 minutes before rinsing off.
Pet Use - The silica in Diatomaceous Earth manages to scratch the fleas, causing them to die before they can breed further so eliminate fleas. It is also extremely effective at destroying fleas that may be infesting within carpet and rooms of your home.
Simply sprinkle a small amount of Diatomaceous Earth lightly throughout the house, particularly onto the carpet where fleas are most likely to reside. Leave it for 4-12 hours before vacuuming the carpet thoroughly.
It's recommended that you repeat the process once a week for 3-4 weeks to ensure that the hatchlings are killed off.
You can also try applying Diatomaceous Earth directly onto the coats of your pets. Just lightly sprinkle and brush until reaches into their scalp.
Home Pest Control - Diatomaceous Earth also helps with the control of pests that might be invading your home. It can target cockroaches, spiders, ants, as well as bedbugs.
With bedbugs, just sprinkle Diatomaceous Earth on your bed as well as any other area you believe the bugs are residing. Do this every night for about a month to completely kill not just the adults but also possible eggs and babies.
As for the ants, spiders, and cockroaches, sprinkle wherever you feel these little critters are residing. Windowsills, kitchen cabinets, and others are just some of the most common places where this happens.
