WHAT IS DIATOMACEOUS EARTH?
Diatomaceous earth is fossilized Diatoms, a type of algae. Diatoms live for about a week before settling on the sea floor, where they become a siliceous sedimentary rock.
Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is a natural pesticide, bed bug killer, and de-worming agent.
Why is Diatomaceous Earth so Important?
Wild Blue Alchemyst Diatomaceous Earth is a natural insecticide that works through mechanical means. As DE absorbs water when it attaches itself to the exoskeletons of insects, they die as a result of water pressure deficiency.
Not All Diatomaceous Earth is The Same
The Diatomaceous Earth I source comes from an extremely pure fresh water deposit of the Diatoms. Why is this Diatom so special? Its shape and hardness are important to how it works. Its hardness keeps it from dissolving in liquid. The holes along the Diatom’s wall allow it to absorb moisture, hence its use as an anti-caking agent and mechanical pesticide. Lower quality Diatomaceous Earth often contains unnecessarily high amounts of iron or clay. Lower quality DE can be identified by its dark color. Wild Blue Alchemyst Diatomaceous Earth is almost pure white and consists of 89-94% Silicon Dioxide, which is the source of DE’s benefits.
