- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy

(If you have not read Paul's article http://www.richsoil.com/diatomaceous-earth.jsp then you should go read it - I will wait for you here

I love food grade diatomaceous earth. My family loves diatomaceous earth.

What makes DE so magical that my 6 year old son will remind me that he has not had his "dirt" today and ask me for some DE?

Here is where the magic lies for me: If I could condense down millennia of climates, micro climates, weather patterns, flaura, fauna, geological changes, polar shifts, ice ages, etc. etc. and put them into a mug and drink them every day, what would I be drinking? Magic Unicorn Dust? No. Diatomaceous Earth. Yes, of course.

DE is mined from the earth. Each DE mine is unique because it articulates the geological history of that specific region. Each DE mine has its own "brand" of DE that has high silica , but also unique trace mineral content that can only be found from that specific mine.

Our family has used just about every "brand" of DE that is out there. For us, we decided on the DE that has a high level of calcium bentonite (volcanic ash) in it because the miracle of calcium bentonite is almost as great as that of DE.

Regardless of which brand of DE you like best, I am sure that you will find it about as magical as unicorn dust.
