Tips & Use

Sprinkle a little DE over your toothpaste for extra deep cleaning power. Only a little is needed to effectively remove stains, and only occasional use is required.

Facial Scrub & Mask
Because it is very fine, diatomaceous earth makes a gentle facial exfoliating mask. In addition to its main component, silica, DE also contains minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, selenium and phosphorous. Since minerals can be absorbed through the skin, this is a wonderful way to complement a mineral-rich diet.
Mix about 1 tablespoon of diatomaceous earth with water, milk, aloe vera or diluted honey to form a thick paste. With your fingertips, gently massage the paste onto your face with small, circular motions. Allow the paste to set for 1-2 minutes, and then gently remove with a warm washcloth again with small, circular motions. This last stage is when most of the exfoliation occurs.

Supports Collagen Production
Silica, which is a type of silicon, is essential for collagen formation. DE is about 80-90% silica.
In one study, animals that were supplemented with a small amount of  silicon had a 12% higher collagen concentration than animals that were not.

Strengthens Nails
Along with gelatin and biotin, silica is essential for building strong, healthy nails.

Supports Healthy Cholesterol Levels
Many studies suggest that DE may be beneficial for lipid metabolism and cholesterol levels.

Strengthens Teeth and Bones
Silica is essential for the formation of the hard outer enamel that protects our teeth, and it is likewise beneficial in overall bone formation and health.

In your Household
Scouring powder
Diatomaceous earth works great as a scouring powder for those tough spots on your pots and pans

Place a cup of uncovered DE in the fridge to keep it smelling fresh.

Deodorize the Carpet
If you have pets in the home, you’re no stranger to a smelly carpet. Vacuum and then dust your carpet with DE and use a cleaning brush to coat the carpet fibers. Leave it overnight, up to 24 hours is best, to let it thoroughly deodorize.
Refresh and deodorize Smelly Shoes
To eliminate shoe odor add DE and leave for 24 hours. DE will absorb the odors.

Eradicate Bed Bugs
DE is registered with the FDA for use against bed bugs, fleas. While DE alone will not rid a bed bug infestation continuous DE use and a regimen of intense, ongoing cleaning of the entire area, including disposal of bedding, will lead to bed bug eradication.

Subdue Garbage Can Odors
Indoor and outdoor garbage cans become extremely malodorous over time. Wash the garbage can out with soap and water, and then dust the inside of the can with DE.

Diatomaceous Earth Polish
Mix together DE and vinegar to make a paste to polish your utensils. Add a few drops of lemon to leave your utensils smelling fresh. You can use this paste in the bathroom on faucets, showers, and sinks for a deep clean. The DE cleaning paste is ideal for copper pots and is a gentle abrasive.

Keep Silverware from Tarnishing
Use this if you rarely use your silverware and you need a way to keep it from tarnishing. Dust a little DE on top of your silverware.

Make a DE Spray Bottle
Add 4 heaping teaspoons to a gallon of water and shake vigorously. DE won’t mix completely rather it hangs suspended in the water. Because of this, be sure to shake a little before you spray. You can use this as a cleaner or to apply DE to some tricky areas as a pesticide.

Absorb Spills
Because DE can absorb up to twice its weight, this feature makes it an ideal stain remover. Liquid stains like oil, grease, or soda are often a bigger problem than a paper towel.
DE uses its porous diatoms to simply soak up messy spills. Let the DE soak up the spill until it’s dry. Then sweep or vacuum it up to dispose of spill. If the spill has caused a stain, then proceed to clean it up with hot soapy water or with any other useful spill cleaning agent. The stain should be relatively mild since DE will have absorbed the residue out of the stain.

Alleviate Kitty Litter Smell
Simply add about a 1/2 cup of DE to the kitty litter box to deodorize and absorb up to twice its weight. DE is odorless, so you won’t have to worry about your cats noticing its addition to the kitty litter.

Pest Control
DE is a natural insecticide. Inside the home use DE for dealing with insects, like ants, cockroaches, silverfish and fleas by placing powder near doorways and under furniture.

In the garden

To rid your garden of aphids, caterpillars and beetles sprinkle a little DE on the soil around your plants.

Our animal pathologist has examined the vital organs and intestinal components submitted, both macroscopically and microscopically, and has found no visible evidence of organ abnormalities.
These components consisted of brain, thyroid, rib section, lung, heart, liver, true stomach, small intestine section, large intestine section, pancreas, kidney, bladder, and forestomach. These organs were submitted under affidavit as being from a slaughtered dairy cow having free choice access to fossil shell flour for approximately five years.

*CLINICAL OBSERVATIONS OF FEEDING CODEX FOOD GRADE DIATOMACEOUS EARTH TO DOGS, O.C. Collins, DVM, Midland Animal Clinic And Hospital, Midland, TX: “In clinical observations of feeding dogs over 35 lbs. 1 tbsp./day and under 35 lbs. 1 tsp./day of DE, within seven days all ova disappeared from stools. DE controlled Ascardis (Toxacara canids), Hookworms (Anclyostoma caninum), and Whipworms (Trichuris vulipis).”

Diatomaceous Earth not only works for external and internal bugs and parasites for animals but food grade Diatomaceous Earth also works for people. The Center for Disease Control lists worm parasites as #1 health risk. There have been numerous studies that show that nearly 85% of Americans have parasites in their bodies. The parasites may be found in uncooked foods, contaminated soil, vegetables, meat, feces, or the worm eggs may be in the wind.

Some of the worm types are

-Roundworms - also called Protozoa, flukes - may cause trichinosis leading to muscle damage and complications of the cardio and neuro systems.

-hookworms - contagious intestinal parasites with the shape of an earthworm but of smaller size  - may cause the soles of the feet to itch, and possibly bloody spit from the mouth, fever, rash, and loss of appetite.

-Pinworms - appear as short white threads of 1/3 inch length or shorter and are the most prevalent worm problem for young children - may cause sever anal itching, insomnia and restlessness. These worms tend to migrate out through the anus at night to lay eggs.

- Tapeworms - are from one inch to thirty feet in length and may live in the body for up to 25 years  -may cause weight loss, abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea

Threadworms - may cause coughing, abdominal pain, diarrhea, gas, and itchy red abrasions on the anus.


 The requirements for farm animals, cats, dogs, birds are 2% of the dry weight of the food.

For large animals, Diatomaceous Earth  may also be offered in a bowl as "free choice" as long as the container is protected from the weather. You can make changes based on the weight and number of animals and on your own experience.. Diatomaceous Earth  is GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe by the FDA, so there is no harm of "overdose")

Human - 1  heaping teaspoon per day.

 --Start with 1/2 a teaspoon and work up so your body does not get rid of all toxins so quickly
Child - 1 level teaspoon per day.
Large Dog (retriever) - 1 level teaspoon per day.
Small Dog (poodle) - 1/2 tsp per day.
Cat - 1/2 tsp per day.
Cow - 1/2 cup per day; Calf - 1/4 cup per day; 

Horse- 1/2 cup per day

Start with a smaller dose and work up so that you do not de-tox the system as quickly (unless you need to de-tox the animal quickly) The body is cleaned out through the bowels.  Diatomaceous earth allows for internal cleaning of the body from parasites and their eggs. It does take 20 days for a worm to produce eggs so it is very important to continue to take Diatomaceous Earth for a minimum of 20 days and if a day is missed you start over. It is recommended that you feed it to animals for 60-90 days.
