So clay is the culprit in turning the tongue black? I used to wonder why... Now I know . After this batch that I have am not going to touch clay again.
@Odowa lover what kind of clay batch are you eating on now ? Your Odowa is Bring sold online again by that Website that hasbeen out since January. For U.S. customers it extremly expensive.

Thanks. I have tried putting some in a paper bag and also baked some, but what I haven't tried yet is putting the baked clay in a paper bag so will try that.
I love how crunchy the white dirt is, just wish it was more to my taste. Are you saying that the red dirt isn't as hard and crunchy? Sounds like it would be perfect if it was.
Did baking the clay and putting it in a paper bag give you the earthy flavor you were craving? Sure wish Leslie had some red dirt in stock been craving me some.

It improved it a little, but it never did get the earthiness that I hoped for. I like it more now though then when I first got it...I'm down to only about 1.5 chunks left and will miss it when it's gone. The piece I had this morning was really good - it was a little gritty which I like.

I am off to the UK this month and looking forward to trying all the clays I can get my hands on! I hope Mavu has a good supply!

I am pregnant with twins and have 4 other children. Every time I get pregnant I crave dirt but I haven't been able to find exactly what I like. The red soil cakes from mavu are not my flavor and the Georgia white dirt is okay but not exactly what I crave either. I want to eat just really dried out red dirt off the ground but I can only bring myself to eat tiny bits because I'm afraid of parasites and such!

Yes as a child I ate dirt off the ground as well. I have not been able to find that same taste yet. Mz Cornstarch is giving away free samples of dirt see her you tube video for more info. However I was told or read that if you heat your dirt in the oven or micro it will kill any parasites.

Hello ladies, well I'm down to my last few bites of white dirt and they are the best! This chunk seems tastier but is also slightly gritty which I love.

I looked closely at this chunk to try to see why it was gritty, and see lots of really tiny bits of what look like shiny crystals as well as bits that are a rusty brown color. Ladies that eat a lot of dirt, is this normal? Thanks.

its very normal :) all of mine has the crystal flecks and spots. It wont hurt you :) as for being dangerous it must not be TOO bad because i caught my 2 year old eating a chunk and she just had her lead check at the pediatrician and her blood work was excellent. All good things in moderation of course. Enjoy!

Pray to GOD to help you stop or at least reduce it...white clay/ewo is a medicine but taking it in large quantity is bad for ones health. It got calcium, magnesium n some other minerals in it but still.......remember to take alot of water.

Hello Ladies, I am new to this site and am so happy to find it. I have spent the last three days reading everyone's post. I can't believe I have found others with the same cravings as I have. I am very interested in buying clay from a few people on this site. Can anyone tell me how to purchase clay from Mavou or Soul Sista?

Hey! I know exactly how you feel as i felt the same! What sort of clay do you usually eat?
Mavu Sellers website is currently under maintenance and you can contact Soul Sista through soulghfoods@hotmail.com she sells the Ghana clay Ayilo and some creamy chunks! Hope that helps :-)
