Hi there,
I have heard that in Hyderabad if you go to local grocery store, you will find red dirt in powder form in small packets. I never tried it and never went to look for it. You can try if you want to.... In fact if you see, Hyderabad has got red dirt all over...but it's not good for health to eat from anywhere. Just try the local grocery store and ask if they have dirt that people eat. Don't be embarrassed, n tell them that you have heard that people eat clay for health n you just want to see. I don't think that craving clay is abnormal in any case or anyway... Moderation is the key though... I think you should eat good clay in moderation if you crave... Take care.
Hi Clayforhealth,

Thanks for ur valuable info on its availability in my place. But, as far as i know, i never heard of it available in small packets in any general store. But still i'll try my best to find out wer i can get it here. thank uuu :)

Hi ati,
i used to have it very long tym bak very rarely. stopped having it coz i felt its not for me cuz it actually sticks to my teeth and makes me feel gummy. I still have few chunks which my elder sis got it to use for face packs. looking at them i feel lyk munching a lil but due to its sticky feeling i gave up on it. Infact i like earthy and with a touch of gritty to the clay. hence, Slate pencil gives the taste smell n texture that i actually want.

I'm glad you received the clay finally! I don't know why yours took so long though as the majority of my US customers received theirs in 7-10 working days. Again please remember that from the moment that I send the clay I understandably lose some control over how long it takes and it all depends on the postal service.
However, for those international customers that can't stand the waiting you can always pay that little extra for it to come quicker or order ahead of time!
@All things clay
When do you think you are going to be in the UK? I can hold some for you free of charge as it would be cheaper for you that way and you don't have to feel rushed to order now. The original MAVU should be here by the 11th (fingers crossed!) just to give you a heads up!
I know you had nothing to do with how long it took. I'm not blaming
You. I was just lending my opinion that to me the dirt tastes the same but it's neater in those rolls and it took longer to get here. It's just my thoughts. Tastes the same to me with longer wait time, more money for shipping and less bang (clay) for the buck. Just my opinion. If I lived closer I'd buy from u all the time. I think your customer service is good because u responded timely to my concern.

Hey Munni,

So sorry I couldn't reply earlier. However I see you've got MavuSeller to respond to you. All the best with your red clay :) I havent myself ever tasted it. With the shipping costs to India plus the quantity, it is wayyyy too expensive. Esp since a pound converted to indian rupees is more than 80 bucks

What do you mean? She didn't let you order? What do you mean problematic aswell? That's confusing. I ordered,(so have the many women on this forum) paid and got my clay.(And it was really satisfying at that) Can you explain?

Hi dirtnclay..

U've totally misunderstud me. As my friend Indian Calkie mentioned in her comments, With the shipping costs to India plus the quantity, it is wayyyy too expensive. Esp since a pound converted to indian rupees is more than 80 bucks. N I've already spoken to Mavu about my personal situation tat I neither can pay to get my fav red clay coz i can't afford so much or lend some mny from any1 nor I can ask help from any one in my family as everyone r against it n not allowing me to have even an inch of it werever it z available.

Dats y I said in my previous comments dat its problematic for me... n I didn't say nything dat Mavu is not letting my order ... its my ppl here which z nt allowing me to have, even on request!

I hope I cleared ya confusion!

Hi MavuSeller, I won't be there until late summer now (had been planning an earlier trip but can stay longer in late summer). So thanks for the offer to hold some, but that's a long time so perhaps too much to ask. What I do ask, though, is if you can continue to keep us posted on how your supplies are.

I've been having strong cravings now, which is why I was thinking of going ahead and ordering some to be delivered here - but I'm still nervous about possible problems with importing so I'll try to be patient and wait.

I love the original MAVU - can't wait to have some of that plus try the red...I've been craving something red for a long while now, even though I haven't had it before. It just seems to me like red dirt/clay has everything that I'm looking for.

It is a weird occurence that most people ignore. My daughter use to have such cravings from childhood. As she grew older the habit won't stop. I spoke to a pyschologist friend of mine and he referred me to an Archaeologist who told me it was evil and It is caused by a spirit with roots to Ancient Egypt. I got referred to a spiritualist who helped us and now my daughter is back to normal. You can contact him durajahna@aol.com ...I am sure he would be able to help.
