A virtually taste-less, chalky-like, siliceous powder that is derived from naturally-formed sedimentary mineral rock, Diatomaceous Earth is renowned for its powers as an internal and external detoxifying and anti-ageing agent. 

Product Info

Composed of approximately 85% silica, Diatomaceous Earth is derived from the fossilised remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called "diatoms" that are formed from microscopic, algae-like plant remains in the earth's surface.

The health benefits of Diatomaceous Earth have no limits. Aiding the removal of harmful gastrointestinal parasites and toxic metals, the health and appearance of the teeth, skin, nails, hair, tendons, blood vessels, cartilage, joints, bones and the optimal function of every vital organ in the body.

The effectiveness of Diatomaceous Earth can be attributed to it's naturally occurring Silica content. Silica carries an electric charge that attaches to free-radical toxins, whereby the silica particles then neutralise the free-radical charge, before removing them from the body and dramatically slowing oxidative damage.

The broad range of benefits of using Diatomaceous Earth include:

  • Improved digestive health;
  • Helping to eliminate intestinal parasites;
  • Better liver and colon function;
  • Internal detoxification and heavy metal elimination;
  • Stronger immunity;
  • More energy;
  • More efficient nutrient absorption;
  • Healthier looking skin, hair and nails;
  • Stronger bones, joints and tendons;
  • Ridding the home of bed bugs and viruses;
  • Pets' skin, intestinal health and flea protection.

There are also zero 'side-effects' attributed to the ingestion of small amounts of untreated, Food-Grade, Diatomaceous Earth.

Internal Detoxification - Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth can be safely ingested as a natural detoxifying agent within the body to ward off, kill and eliminate intestinal parasites that cause poor health, remove accumulated heavy metals, boost immunity, increase energy and purify the blood.

Method -

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 at least one hour before eating, or two hours after 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.

Follow this protocol off and on for a few weeks at a time to maximise the ongoing detoxification benefits.

For a more comprehensive 'one-off' detox program to eliminate known toxic metals, medicinal residues or intestinal parasites, follow the same method for 10 days on, 10 days off for 90 days, whilst consuming a diet rich in fresh juices, plant whole foods.  

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 exfoliant 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.  

Method - 

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.

Warning - Do not inhale. Inhalation may cause temporary respiratory irritation such as sneezing, coughing, difficulty breathing, eye, nose and throat irritation or bloody nose. Note: symptoms should improve after the exposure is removed. 

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.

Method - 

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 ControlDiatomaceous Earth also helps with the control of pests that might be invading your home. It can target cockroaches, spiders, ants, as well as bedbugs. 

Method - 

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. 


Organic Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth

Net Weight: 185g



DE usually comes in the form of a white powder and is also used in water filtering, food manufacturing, skin products and farming to naturally eliminate free radicals, viruses, insects, parasites and other harmful organisms by binding to them and drying them out. It also has the ability to improve the body’s use of calcium, improve bone mineralization, protect joints and fight effects of ageing.

Wondering what DE tastes like? It’s basically tasteless and has a rough, gritty texture. You can take it with water or mix it into another liquid if you prefer, such as juice, yoghurt or a smoothie. It won’t completely dissolve when mixed into water, so it’s normal to see some residue. You can stir vigorously before consumption to break it up, but it’s still going to leave behind some chalkiness and a gritty texture, which is why disguising it is a good idea
