ive been eating clay for years now and i enjoy ma clay especially if it tastes earthy and with e right smell.i eat the white,smooth one.last week i had three huge chunks of clay and i decided to dry them using the oven and i could not believe it wen i had finished all three chunks e same day.because i dont noe wat e oven does but the clay was delicious and the smell was mind blowing.

It's sad to say that I'm at the powder and crumbs of my clay from Wanda. It's also sad to say that this batch wasn't good to me. Maybe it's me not used to eating the clay or I'm looking for something more flavorful. It wasn't as earthy to me even having it in the paper bag and it also wasn't sour to me. Might order soon and hopefully it's better.

Yes that is how a lot of us feel about clay. It can consume our lives. Try an see if you can cut back gradually with the goal of eventually stopping. I know it is not easy but determination will pull you through.

So many of us feel like that. I have no clay right now but hopefully will soon as I plan to be in the UK and want to stock up then. I crave it often, but especially first thing in the morning, after meals and before bed.

Hi priya....i have started eating baked multani mitti now to satisfy my cravings...
All you need to do is to mix the powder multani mitti with water and let it dry for 2-3 days....once its completely dry..you can roast it on a pan till the coating turns grey or you can bake it in an oven...the more you bake/roast the more crunchy and earthy taste it will have....in case you are getting the multani mitti chunks itself from market then you dnt need to mix it with water..you can directly bake it...hope this helps...
