love love love ayillo clay from Ghana. I actually stopped eating clay for 14years during my child bearing years but recently the craving came back and i am back at it. It tastes heavenly. It heals stress and depression....and mine gives me some good sleep.

To Mavu Seller or anyone who has tried the red soil cake:

I am still trying to satisfy myself whether the soil cake can properly be called clay or is a type soil (I see that both terms are used on the Mavu site).

Has anyone added water to the soil cake? If so, does it 'behave' like clay - for example dissolve and turn like mud or plasticky? Or does it 'behave' like soil?

Thanks if anyone can answer.

Hi All things clay.

In answer to your question I have to say that officially it would be classed as a red soil as it is a specially harvested soil that is grounded into a fine powder that is then moulded. The baking of it hardens it to a clay like consistency so I guess you could say it's a bit of both as it does 'behave' like clay when wet!

Hope this makes it clearer for you!
