Diatomaceous Earth, also known as Fossil Shell Flour, has so many benefits. My goal is to spread the word.

Firstly, if you’re interested in trying it, click the link below!

If you’d like to give it a try, click HERE or the picture below.

Did you know that there is one cheap, simple, safe, natural ingredient that can rid your life of parasites, and dangerous insects while also cleansing your body and providing it with a very important mineral? If not… you’re about to find out!

Diatomaceous Earth, is an extraordinary substance. EXTRAORDINARY I tell you!!!

It is a natural pesticide and can rid your yard of piles of ants without harming your children or pets!

Rid your Dogs, Cats, Horses, Chickens, Goats… (you get the idea,) of fleas and parasites when brushed lightly into their coat.

It can be added to animal diets and rid them of parasite’s and parasite eggs. In fact, there was actually a study done at a zoo where, when fed to Black Bears and Ape’s, they showed a better appearance in coat and clearer eyes. There was also no sign of internal parasites or eggs. Nuff said!

Dramatically decrease your fly population if you have certain animals that attract those pesky winged flying cesspools of nastiness. I actually brush my horses coats with it! We’ve seen a huge fly reduction.

Kill bed bugs. You read me right… BED BUGS.

It is also one of the few things that can take out scorpion’s. Just sprinkle or dust the area where you’ve seen scorpion’s and let the Fossil Shell Flour work its magic. I’ll explain more about this below.

Diatomaceous Earth is a very high source of Silica, a mineral many of us need more of in our diets.

Fossil Shell Flour is a great additive to your compost and soil, as it rids it of pests without hurting your flowers and crops.

It can also be very good for you! What you say… Really?

“You mean you actually eat this Fossil Shells?”

Why yes… yes I do.

How many of you would eat something with the word “Fossil” in the title? I didn’t think I would either… until I learned more about it.

Before we get into the nitty gritty details (yes, the pun is intended… always intended,) I’d like to share a story.

A few weeks ago as I was perusing around on Facebook a friend’s recent ER experience popped up on my feed. Come to find out, she had a tapeworm?

You read me right… a tapeworm. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Believe it or not, they are more common (as are other parasites,) than we may know.

Anyone can pick up a tapeworm from eating undercooked pork or meat if there are eggs present. I don’t think I need to go into how it all goes down from there.

Now, here’s is one of the glorious outcomes of taking Diatomaceous Earth.

Ingesting Fossil Shell Flour can rid you of parasites. Because the flour is very hard and abrasive, it “cuts” the parasites, making it impossible for them to survive. Therefore, they die and uh “pass,” out of your system. Eeeewwwweee!

What is Fossil Shell Flour?

Fossil Shell Flour is an all-natural product made from little bitty fossilized water plants. Fossil shell flour is about 84% Silicon Dioxide (Silica)

Some say, “Silica is the most important trace mineral for health.”

Silica is important for many functions in the human body and has a direct relationship to mineral absorption.

My sister is convinced that the reason I”m part bovine while breastfeeding, producing way more than any baby could ever eat (I pump and extra 12 to 16 ounces every day) is because I absorb nutrients so well. Is it true? I don’t know. But if it is, I’ll attribute it to my daily dose of Fossil Shell Flour or Diatomaceous Earth, as it’s commonly known.

So, how does it work? How can it be beneficial?

1. As Fossil Shell flour moves through your stomach and digestive system, it attracts and absorbs bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxin, pesticides, drug residues, E-Coli, and Heavy Metals. Because each particle of Fossil Shell flour is porous, it takes these toxins in like a magnet, traps them and they pass out of the body. Also, if there are any parasites in the digestive system, they are “cut up,” by the flour and killed. Awesome right? I can honestly say that when I am religious and take it daily, I rarely get sick and I just feel better.

2. It is very hard. On the hardness scale where diamonds are a 9 (Don’t eat diamonds) Fossil Shell Flour (Diatomaceous Earth) is a 7 on the hardness scale. As it moves through your body it “scrubs” your digestive system of buildup and mucous and leaves those intestinal walls squeaky clean (Okay, maybe not the best visual, but it is an effective one.)

This is also why it kills insects on contact. Fossil Shell Flour acts like a deadly abrasive insect destroyer. As insects walk through the flour, or as the flour is poured over them (as I’ve done with Aunt Colonies,) the fine dust attaches to their body. Because it is so hard, it literally shred’s they protective layers and makes them dry out. If you have deadly insects walking around, threatening your family and children (such as Black Widow’s and Scorpion’s,) then FSF is just what you need. The plus is that it is NOT TOXIC for your family, animals or YOU!

3. As you ingest, a small amount of Fossil Shell Flour gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica.  One of the benefits of silica is it helps to destroy bad fat! Hello… who doesn’t want to destroy bad fat right? Hand raised over here.

Silica has many other benefits as well, to healthier hair, skin, nails and eyes to helping your body with inflammation and tissue repair.

Cancer cannot survive in cells that have a appropriate level of Silica. This, alone, is reason enough for me to take it!

There are so many more benefits to Silica which I will write about in the future.

In today’s grains, there is actually a shortage of silica. Fossil Shell Flour is an easy and cheap way to get your body the silica it needs.

4. Diatomaceous Earth can aid in stimulating your metabolism, regular bowel movements (TMI?) It can contribute to a healthier colon (Something we all need as we start reaching the top of the age hill,) lower blood pressure, lower high cholesterol, it can help sore joints feel better, and improve our skin. Honestly, the benefits of Fossil Shell Flour and the Silica found there is well, amazing.

5. It is an all-natural pesticide as well and rids the body or parasites and parasite eggs – as stated above.

We have horses (my big, adorable, lovable hairy babies) and with owning horses come the dreaded fly infestation.

I actually feed 1/2 cup to my horses in their feed once a day. Not only does it rid their body of parasites, it has dramatically reduced our fly population.

Plus, I’ve noticed when they do get their daily Fossil Shell Flour, I can cut down on their feed because they absorb more of what they eat. Killing the fly population and cutting down on my monthly horse feed bill… a food that looks much about the same going in and coming out… you bet I love it.

In addition to feeding this to my horses, I occasionally brush them with the fine powder as well. It helps to rid them of ticks, fleas, or any bug that may have made a nice and comfortable home in their coats. Goodbye bugs. I like my horse fur silky smooth and parasite free. Also, when flies land on them they quickly die. Because of its abrasive nature, it destroys the outer skeleton of most insects/bugs. Cool Right?

It’s amazing really. I’ve also used the stuff to kill ants. I’ve spread it on a colony of ants and within minutes they are… well, no longer a colony.



Suffering from fruit flies in your sink? No problem… Take a tablespoon, mix it in water and poor it down. It will stick to the flies and kill them quickly.

Like I said, this is good stuff people. Plus, it’s all-natural.

We also add the flour into our compost. The great thing about it is that it will kill almost any parasite or bug, but it does not harm earthworms, which are very beneficial to your garden.

You can buy Diatomaceous earth or Fossil Shell Flour on Amazon!

MAKE SURE TO GET ONLY FOOD GRADE FOSSIL SHELL FLOUR. They also make it for swimming pools. DO NOT ingest the swimming pool kind. Make sure the package says FOOD GRADE, as the one does in the link above.

Also, do not heat. Make sure you ingest cold, as in a cup of water or juice.

I swear you will not be disappointed.

Now, how do I take Fossil Shell Flour?

Start by mixing 1 teaspoon in water (I do a shot size of water) and shooting it down. As you adjust (Um, you may be a tad… shall we say… loose for a few days,) increase to a tablespoon once a day. Drink lots of water with it, as this will help flush toxins from your body.

If you find it constipates you (Okay, let’s be real here… A case of the back ups can happen from time to time,) drink a lot more water. Fossil Shell flour is highly absorbent, and you must drink a lot of water when you ingest to receive the full benefits.

Honestly, I love the taste. You know when you walk outside to freshly falling rain or that smell when you power spray your garage… that musty, wet concrete smell. I LOVE that smell. It smells like spring to me. This is what Fossil Shell Flour tastes like. Some may dislike it, but I love it.

WARNING: it is important that you try not to inhale the flour. If you can, wear a mask. Because of the hardness scale of each particle, it can irritate your lungs if inhaled.

For bed bugs: I suggest filling a cup with the Fossil Shell Flour and using a makeup blush brush, dusting any mattress or furniture piece that may be affected. Also, wear a mask as you dust. Once it is settled, it should not irritate your lungs

For Ants: Simple fill a cup and lightly dust the flour over the top of the ant pile.

Other insects: dust on baseboards, or wherever you feel insects could enter into your house and/or yard.

Compost: Simply mix a few cups of flour into your compost pile. Add more if you feel you need it.

Pets: lightly and gently dust their coats. I add the flour to my Horses grain (The molasses helps it to stick,) and to my chicken’s feed. Also, I

dust my chickens with the flour.

In the end,  hope you find this helpful. I sure have. Happy flouring my friends and God Bless.

May your life simply be sweet!
