Diatomaceous Earth is a chalk like powder that is mined from old lake beds. It's main component is silicon dioxide.
I've used it for many applications, but if you want to try it make sure you buy the food-grade diatomaceous earth, or you could get some dangerous additives.

It's best known as an insecticide, and in my experience it works. Under a microscope it's very sharp; it kills by shredding and drying out the insect that crawls over it.

Insecticide Uses:

-Sprinkle on floor of chicken coops, barns, dog houses, etc. to kill flies, mites, and fleas.
-Sprinkle in corners of home and under appliances to kill cockroaches, beetles, fleas, bedbugs, ants, etc.
-Rub on cats/dogs fur to naturally kill fleas and ticks.
-Add a teaspoon to cat's food for a couple weeks to kill internal parasites (please google dosage for chickens, dogs, horses, etc)
-Sprinkle a circle around garden plants (works very well, but you have to reapply a lot, especially after rain)
-Add to stored grains to kill insects that would make a meal of it

*Do not breathe this stuff in, it will dry out your nose and make your throat hurt, same with your animals*

Health Uses:

-Some people take a teaspoon in a glass of water daily to help with lowering cholesterol, digestive health, healthy skin and nails, and joint pain


Think about all the poisonous chemicals people are using in their homes, every day, when God provided us with entire lake beds of a natural material to do the same thing. Companies are making money off of us and giving us cancer at the same time, and there's no reason for it. Sad
