Looking for Diatomaceous Earth or DE? Dave and I bought some (food grade) last March and totally forgot to write about it, but before I reveal to you where I got our stock from, let's talk about what DE is exactly, first.

DE goes by many names other than diatomaceous earth, it is also known as dinosaur dust, miracle mineral, fossil shell and ancient treasure. Generally considered safe, diatomaceous earth comes from the remains of diatoms, or oceanic unicellular algae. Diatoms are hard-shelled algae that come from bodies of water, a type of fossilized phytoplankton, typically sold in powder form and used for a wide variety of needs. DE has a high silica content which makes it good for our skin and hair. Studies also show that DE has a negative charge which proves to be useful when it comes to health considerations.



Some of the most popular diatomaceous earth uses include:
  • foods and beverages, such as in beer and wine
  • water filters
  • skin care products
  • supplements and medicines
  • toothpastes
  • pet nutrition products
  • products used on dogs and cats to kill flees
  • bed bug-killing treatments
  • sprays and products used to get rid of bugs, including cockroaches, crickets, fleas, ticks, spiders
  • anti-caking and clarifying ingredients used in food manufacturing
  • rubbers and paints used in construction
  • abrasive products used as defoliators and for cleaning
  • rodent sprays

Here are some of the benefits one can expect from using DE:
  • a cleaner home, free from parasites, bed bugs and viruses
  • healthier-looking skin, hair and nails
  • improved digestion and promotes regular bowel movements
  • improved liver and colon functioning
  • better joint and ligament health
  • detoxification and removal of heavy metals in the body
  • stronger immune system and prevention from contracting illnesses
  • stronger bones and protection from fractures or osteoporosis
  • increased energy
  • for dogs and cats, cleaner skin and protection from flees/ticks

We had pests to get rid of and also small children and pets to protect. Going the usual route of using chemical-based products just wasn't in the cards. The risk was too high and we were never fans of those household brands anyway. Dave told me about DE as a natural alternative and I was dead set on acquiring some for our household to safely get rid of pesky bugs without endangering the kids and our cats. My search was successful, stumbling upon Happy Healthy Pet Soap House - Madre de Cacao Products on Facebook got me the food grade DE that we were aiming to get.

100% Natural Organic Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth from the store is priced at Php350/kg for Premium and Php150/kg for Regular. I ordered 2kgs of their Premium food grade DE, paid for it the next day and got it the day after through Xend. It was a smooth and hassle-free transaction all in all. So happy I found a shop to purchase DE from.

Our pest problem was solved using this safe and natural powder. More about this wonderful product that definitely stretched our peso, soon.
